Better than basics, but soon to be staples in this week’s Top Picks, from jeans that look as good as they feel to bangles that add the easy something special, to a no-fuss, fool-proof eye primer. Plus two bags now on our must-have spring and summer list, and an inventive, creative play way to celebrate Women’s History Month.
Meaghan: Tim and I are spending this week in the Caymans with my family, which will be simultaneously fabulous and low-key. What better accompaniment to this trip than our Thumbprint Bangle, which has an amazing hand-applied texture that gives it just the right amount of texture and sparkle without being too glitzy. What’s more, they’re durable, so I don’t need to remove it to go swimming or boating — one less thing to worry about when I’m chasing my toddler across the beach. (Available online and at Alexandria and Company, starts at $200 in sterling silver)
Celeste: More DL Denim has arrived at Kiskadee! Introducing the mid-rise, cropped Instasculpt flare with a contoured waistband, and a high-recovery, high-retention fit. It has five-pocket styling, released hemline, and antique copper hardware. A must for your casual wardrobe! (Available at Kiskadee, $188)
Angela: Cake-proof, crease-proof, and fool-proof, the high-performance Heir Atelier Eye Primer is infused with skin-loving antioxidants and creates the ideal smoothing effect on contact. The best! Holds all day. (Available at Bellacara, $32)
Elizabeth: Handmade in Ecuador, the Kali bag by Yosuzi has been crafted with the modern beach wanderer in mind. Woven by artisan women using strong Toquilla straw, this bag can carry all of your beach (or city) essentials. (Available at The Shoe Hive, $450)

Amy: March is Women’s History Month and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate it than sharing these blocks with your daughter – or son – to show them what women are capable of. Featuring women like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Cleopatra, Mother Theresa, and Ruth Bader Ginsberg, these blocks feature women who dared to make the world a better place for all.
