Photographs by Jeff Henrikson, Styled by Zara Zachrisson

There are some obvious spring trends that come back every season: floral dresses! Ruffled tops! Pastels! But that’s not all that was on the Spring 2017 runways this season. “Spring may be synonymous with floral prints and flowy dresses, but I still find myself gravitating to structured suits and their polished, pulled-together attitude,” explains W’s Fashion Market and Accessories Director Rickie de Sole. In that spirit, W’s editors share their favorite tough, structured, yet still ladylike pieces for the season, from a statement necklace to a new Chanel bag.
