Fashion Resolve

Written by Kellye Crocker You’ve popped the champagne. Now, why not add a pop of freshness to your wardrobe for 2014? We asked three “retail therapists” to recommend one item in their boutiques to boost a woman’s style quotient right now. Their ideas:

Gerard jacket by Rachel Zoe ($425 at K. Renee). “An instant update on a classic: the trench,” says Megan Aronson, director of operations. “We love the three-quarter sleeves and tencel fabric. It has personality, yet is also timeless.”

Color block zip cardigan by Basler Cruise Collection ($540 at Sahar’s Fashion Gallery). “This cardigan has me thinking of a cruise vacation,” says owner Sahar Alshash. “The cobalt blue provides a punch of color that is essential to a wardrobe’s vitality. It will go with just about anything and easily transitions into spring.”

Tunic-length tank by Clara S. ($42 at Fashion by the HallTree). “With a bra-friendly U neckline and an A-line fit for more hip room, it’s perfect with leggings or skinny jeans,” says Jill Lange, store manager. “It’s an awesome, all-year layering piece. I have two myself.” Made in the U.S., the tank is available in red, white and–black.block cardigan1tank
