At first sign of warm weather, you yanked your gladiators out of storage and grabbed the neon accessories. (Someone’s ready for spring.) Now your toes have frostbite and your boss keeps asking where your parachute pants are.
The better way to segue into next season: Kaylee Tankus’s latest collection.
South Korean designer Kay Lee combines light, wearable fabrics (cotton, silk, jersey); a neutral palette (black, gray, ivory); and asymmetrical detailing to create sophisticated basics that work yearlong.
Throw up the hood on the cropped jacket when cold winds blow, then zip it off and push up the bubble sleeves on 70-degree days. Likewise for the striped tunic, which has a button-on scarf that can be removed in an instant. And we love the layered pockets on the stretchy black pants so much, we don’t care what weather.com says.
You’ll Tankus for it later.
