Trends may come and go, but these pieces remain stylish staples worth your investment.
1. The trench coat.
Just about the chicest thing you could ever wear. And if you buy one with a removable wool lining it'll take you through spring, summer and fall. Did we mention how great it looks?
2. Flat-front trousers.
When you're looking for a classic pant, steer clear of pleats or bulky pockets in front; those details will make the pants look dated. A flat-front trouser is flattering on any body, with clean, simple lines.

No matter what size you are or what kind of figure you have, these tips will help you shed pounds instantly!
1. When it comes to wearing prints and patterns, wear them on the smallest, slimmest part(s) of your body.
They call a lot of attention, and accentuate whatever body part they're covering. Also, be sure to pair prints with a neutral-colored piece, which works to slim more voluptuous curves.
2. Stay away from extra bulk.
Details like zippers, buttons, pleats, cargo pockets, ruffles and gathers all add volume.

Inspired by ads of Virginia Slims and Charlie, from the 1970s, Kors designed a spring collection for the woman who rules the boardroom, rocks the beachfront and reigns the gala–with style, of course.
