Whitney Port’s No Regrets Spring Picks

We sat down with Hollywood “It” girl and burgeoning fashion designer Whitney Port, and she shared her no-regrets style picks for spring.

After countless red carpet appearances and seasons of design sessions for her line Whitney Eve, the gorgeous celeb-reality star shares her defining mantra for a wardrobe filled with foolproof purchases: “The key is to dress for yourself and your sensibility.” That said, there are certain pieces that will be universally appealing to women of all sensibilities this spring.

Whitney_Port's _No_Regrets_Spring_Picks

1. Mara Hoffman Ruched Cross Back Dress

“Mixing prints will be huge this spring, which is why this dress is such a great find. You can pair it with endless options because the pattern is so graphic and has so many colors. I’d wear it to the office during the day or a cocktail party at night.”

2. Rachel Roy Volume Sleeve Dress

“The little black dress is a staple of every woman’s closet. This one looks more sophisticated than frilly, thanks to the knee-skimming hemline. The volume on the sleeves feels purposeful and instantly feminizes the silhouette, not to mention that it’s far more flattering to have a heightened proportion on the shoulder than it is anywhere else on the dress. It’s classic but fun!”

3. Temperley London Mini Bessy

“The piping on this mod-inspired dress looks so architectural and helps carve out a feminine shape. I love pieces that are subtly sexy. This dress is covered in the front but has a back-baring element that’s surprising and is sexy without trying too hard. It’s classic enough that you can wear it forever, but the paneling, piping, and cutout make it very modern.”

4. Rebecca Minkoff Cameron Skinny jeans

“Skinny jeans are a wardrobe mainstay, but these printed ones up the ante. The foggy leopard print is visible enough to elevate a basic denim, but not too busy that they’re tough to pull off.  And, because they’re rendered on gray jeans, they’re surprisingly neutral.”

5. Loeffler Randall Pernille Zipper Clogs

“Clogs are a comfortable alternative to heels, and this particular pair lend an edgy vibe to everything from skinny jeans to a long skirt. Plus, the heel height is totally manageable to stand in for hours.”

6. Alexander Wang Tai Dopp Kit Bag

“Skins on accessories never go out of style, which makes this snakeskin dopp kit bag an essential. It could finish off a menswear-inspired look perfectly or add a cool balance to something more feminine.”

7. The Eva Blazer by Whitney Eve

“Everyone needs a great wardrobe chameleon piece that can be worn in infinite ways and still manages to make each outfit feel different. This blazer does just that. It looks sophisticated with pants, casual-chic with loose shorts, and adds an edge to ladylike dresses.”

8. The Fin Dress by Whitney Eve

“The 60s are having a moment in fashion right now and this shift dress copies that era’s classic silhouette which fits loose and short.  The color-blocked stripes in either black and peach or sage and coral make a bold, eye-catching statement that’s super wearable.”

9. The Emmy Sweatshirt by Whitney Eve

“Gray sweatshirts are the best-kept secret for achieving a look that’s put together, but still feels really cozy.  This lightweight one is perfect for a spring day with a bright shirt and high-waisted jeans; add a bold necklace to dress it up.”

Don’t forget to enter our Shop With Confidence Sweepstakes!

Each day we’re giving away $100 towards one of Whitney’s Spring Picks along with a free American Express Premium Return Protection subscription, and one grand prize winner will get a $3,000 shopping spree through Shop It To Me and a virtual styling session with Whitney herself.
