Here, editor-in-chief Jill dons Samantha Pleet’s Plaid Kilt Romper – “I love how fun and cute this romper is – it’s half punk rock and half girly-girly. I’ve never been a huge fan of plaid but this jumper makes me see plaid in a whole new light.

Samantha Pleet’s Petaler Dress as worn by Jill. Cute and universally flattering, the tube-dress shape is really simple, but playful ruffles offer a little extra quirk and personality.

Kristi Bernick from Inhabitat is a fan of Nau’s Asylum Jacket.

“It can be hard finding a female ski jacket that isn’t a) super baggy and made for snow boarders or b) a super-cropped feminine puffy jacket with fur accents,” she says. “This jacket is great because it still complements a womanly figure but the design also reflects genuine performance wear. I am a big fan of the detailing in the sealed zippers, the hood that fits to go over a helmet, and that extra fabric at the tail-end in case of bad tumbles in the snow.”

You can’t help but be swept up in designer Kizzy Jai Knight’s ebullience and zest. She handed out handmade heart-shape felt buttons to remind us that everything we needed is “right here.”

Yuka Yoneda, our senior editor, strikes a pose in the Lady Ascot Dress by Jai. Made from organic wool from Vermont, the frock was inspired by designer Kizzy Jai Knight’s hometown in England. Yuka: “Even though this dress looks fancy with its elegant drapes, it’s incredibly comfy and perfect for a night out dancing, which totally makes sense since Kizzy comes from a dance background and Jai’s underlying philosophy is to be ‘playfully regal.’

Talk about statement jewelry! This head-turner by KIFE Collection is part bib necklace, part body armor. You “wear” it by slipping the two ends over your arms, like sleeves.

Our attention was repeatedly drawn to H Fredriksson’s V-neck caftan (middle), which features a spectacular, abstract print that is nothing short of hypnotic.

Also one of Jill’s picks: “I’m not much of a print person, but H Fredriksson’s makes amazing prints,” she says. “As soon as I saw this flowy silk top I had to try it on. I can’t get over how cool this geometric, mirrored black and white print is—I love it!”
