After honing her skills at Kate Spade New York and Steven Alan, designer Whitney Pozgay launched Whit, her own women’s clothing line, in 2010. Whit’s whimsical, feminine interpretations of basic wardrobe separates immediately garnered attention from fashion magazines and tastemakers for their effortlessness and simplicity. Vintage-inspired dresses, textured knits, structured skirts, rompers, tops, and other designs feature fun details such as stripes, ruffles, and geography-themed flourishes. For its 2012 runway debut, Pozgay unveiled an adorable collection featuring ingenious outer space-inspired prints and super-chic mini dresses. This Whit knows all about wit.

There's nothing drab about this crop of grays. Lace tops, striped turtlenecks, layer-ready vests, and comfy tees are joined by decidedly more daring pieces: just look at standouts like the dramatic silk trousers, the edgy asymmetric trench, and the woven canvas coat — from names like Marni, Derek Lam, Vince, and more.
