Sensing a Pattern

The key to a versatile wardrobe? Pieces you can mix and match.

That’s why we love this DeNovo two-piece chevron ensemble. Worn together, the top and full skirt make for a bold black and white fashion statement, but the skirt could also lend flare to a simple tee or polished blouse. Pair the flirty crop top with jeans or shorts for a more casual look. And since it’s vacation season, we’ll note another benefit: Pack it and just like that, you’ve freed up enough room in your suitcase to bring back souvenirs (or tuck away an extra pair of shoes).

DeNovo top, $48; skirt, $54; and City Classified “Frankie” sandals, $40; from Garment District.
