The Tom Ford lipstick collection has 12 luminous colors ranging from soft neutrals and pinks to intense reds and plums.  While Pink Dusk is perfect for every day, it is fun to mix it up every now and then.  For that added pop of color, Pure Pink, True Coral, and Ginger Fawn are our favorites.  These vivacious shades are perfect for both day and night.  Plus, we love the elegant look of the white and gold packaging. 

Styling Tip:  Pair them with vibrant brights and prints this summer and carry them into fall with neutrals and solids.

The Little Black Bag

The little black bag, much like the little black dress, has long been a staple in every woman's wardrobe. This season it's all about the structured crossbody bag.  It's a more polished choice for the woman on-the-go.  We love the creative hardware on the Givenchy, Derek Lam and YSL bags, but there's also something so chic about the simple design of the Michael Kors and J.W. Hulme bags.
