Classically Chic: Charcoal Knit Tank and Pencil Skirt, Oversized Double Breasted Trench, Strappy Black Suede Block Heel Sandals, Prada Cat-Eye Sunglasses and Vintage Valentino Clutch

Sophisticated brunches call for sophisticated brunch outfits.

So when plans were made for an upscale gals brunch, I put together a look with some of my favorite classic pieces and a few new ones that have been waiting anxiously for their  Spring debut!  For me, there’s nothing more feminine or classic than a cami and body-con skirt, so when I saw Zara’s knit tank and pencil skirt set in CharcoalI had to nab it immediately (and I’d be lying if I didn’t reveal that visions of sipping vino at a Milanese piazza in this set didn’t motivate the buy – 3 months ’til Italia!).  Because there’s still a little chill in the air, I threw on an oversized double-breasted trench coat (I love trenches in the Spring/Fall and I don’t just reserve them for rainy days).  For a little edge, I wore strappy black suede block heel sandals.  Finally, I kept accessories refined and tailored with medium thick gold hoops (so vintage Sophia Loren), vintage Ferragamo envelope clutch (that I found at the Manhattan Vintage Show last year) and Prada Cat-Eye Sunglasses.

Are we sensing a theme here?  Ciao Italia!
