Spring Must-Haves

Each season, I narrow down my list of must-haves. Here's what got top picks:

1. Something Floral: Burberry's Rosette Embroidered Dress is a textural option to traditional floral prints.

2. Something Red: It was hot on the Red Carpet, and it'll be hot elsewhere. Zac Posen's Tomado gown is smokin' ($5,400 at net-a-porter.com).

3. Something Whimsical: Miu Miu's brocade coat is a mixture of harlequin romance, French maid, and schoolgirl innocence. Choose an item that combines various elements and is slightly off-kilter.

4. Something Yellow: It's hard to resist such a cheery color, and especially when Lela Rose puts her stamp of genius on it.

5. Something Belted: Choose a stand-out belt to cinch your looks. Burberry Prorsum's, Bottega Veneta's, and Fendi's belts are all fantastic.

The Burberry is stunning. And as I've said elsewhere, I'm no fan of Zac Posens, because he tends to overthink his pieces, but this dress looks refreshingly harmonious. Perhaps there are hidden pintucks or other embellishments in back--but if not, this one is indeed one to wear.
