R13 Jeans - Rachel Comey Jumpsuit - Public School Notebooks - Ancient Greek Sandals - Atterley Road Skirt

High-style updates to classic fashion shapes caught my eye this week, from an elastic waist black leather skirt to a relaxed take on ‘70s flares. These inventive labels are finding fun ways to keep a classic wardrobe fresh and moderm.

Check out all of my favorite online shopping finds this week…

1. R13 Jane Flared Jeans, $595.00
Flared, ‘70s-inspired jeans are the hot denim silhouette of the spring season. But, many of us have been down this trend’s road before, making it easy to get bored. These ultra-distressed flares are a modern update on the look, like a cross between the standard ‘70s silhouette and your favorite boyfriend jeans. Boredom alleviated.

2. Rachel Comey Cotton Utila Jumpsuit, $445.00
I love the look of all white for spring and summer, but get scared off by fears of looking too prim. This jumpsuit solves that problem with a relaxed fit and medium-weight denim construction. I’m also intrigued by the “dirty white” color, which instantly feels more wearable than your standard bright white.

3. Public Supply Grey Scale Notebooks, $12.00
Not only are these notebooks a chic place to scribble your daily notes to self, 25% of all profits go to supplying public school teachers with the things they need to teach creative arts classes. A code on the back of each notebook lets you learn about the exact classroom your purchase helped support.

4. Ancient Greek Sandals Thais Grey Pony Hair Slide, $270.00
This new-to-me Greece-based sandal maker is everywhere this season, from the Goop newsletter to pretty much all of my favorite boutiques. Someone in that company’s PR department seriously got their hustle on this season. But, the label deserves the attention – their sandals are gorgeous in their modern simplicity. These grey pony hair leather slides are my top pick.

5. Atterley Road Black Perforated Leather Skirt, $130.95
This amazingly affordable new find is a stylish, spring-appropriate update on the classic black leather pencil skirt. The perforations in the leather add a lightness that will work well in warmer weather, while the genius elasticized waistband creates a high-style statement silhouette. It’s genuine leather and fully lined, which is hard to come by at this low price.
