PANTONE_BOYDS

Lattice Sweater, $598, by Akira Naka at Boyds Philadelphia

Head out in Akira Naka’s Lattice sweater, the mod offspring of superior textiles and Japanese hand-weaving techniques. A short sleeve and slim cutouts between the shoulders allow the garment a canny transition between seasons, or from day to night. Award those arms and collarbones the breathing room they deserve. 1818 Chestnut St., boydsphila.com



PANTONE_KIN

Chains Pantsuit, $165, by Finders Keepers the Label at Kin Boutique

Aside from the brilliant ease of a one-piece, this one’s playful pattern and wide-leg design pairs well with happy hour and GNO—though its wear is by no means limited to leisure. The heart of Finders Keepers the Label lies in crafting attire to accompany a woman wherever she wishes to go in life. Slip on the pantsuit, add heels and pursue your dreams. 1014 Pine St., shop-kin.com


PANTONE_Joan Shepp

‘Star' Bag, $530, by Golden Goose at Joan Shepp

Shoot for the moon with Golden Goose’s shimmering ‘Star’ Bag in tow. Its classic camera bag design deems it a closet staple, taken up a notch by an embellished star detail and a metallic sheen throughout— a refreshing, elevated take on the bedazzled purse your 10-year-old self toted around. 1811 Chestnut St., joanshepp.com

Classic Blue Reversible Bomber Jacket, Shearling, $2,175, by Grenn Pilot at Shop Sixty Five
