Zac Posen‘s collection of under-$200 Z Spoke dresses hit Lord & Taylor stores this week, and the line is full of office-to-after-hours designs. “I always try to create age and body diverse collections that work for all types of women,” Posen, inset, told InStyle.com. “The collection is inspired by a woman’s ability to be flirty and sexy, while always remaining elegant and sophisticated.” Styles include curve-hugging jersey sheaths and ladylike lace looks.

Temperley London’s signature romantic aesthetic was in full-effect for the label’s new collection, named Ophelia. An assortment of 21 draped and embellished gowns ranged from goddess-like Grecian numbers numbers to straight-from-the-garden strapless ball gowns. To complete the fairy tale, designer Alice Temperley finished the designs with embroidery, ruffles and, of course, an abundance of lace. See our favorite Temperley looks in the gallery, as well as more of our top picks from spring 2013 Bridal Fashion Week.
We can’t get enough of Duchess Catherine’s classic, tailored style, and the world agrees. In her first year as a royal wife—happy anniversary, April 29th!—she has sparked sales of nude tights, dress coats, and ladylike patent pumps, and she’s put British brands like L.K. Bennett and Reiss on the map. Not to mention, many of the items she’s photographed in sell out immediately. Check out some of the most popular items Kate Middleton caused to fly off the shelves in the gallery. Then, tell us: Have you tried the “RepliKate” look?
Spotted on edgy stars such as Rihanna, these tiny trinkets—also known as memory or tea rings—are supposed to be worn at the top of any finger. “I pair one with a large cocktail ring or my middle finger,” jeweler Jennifer Fisher told InStyle. “It makes for a funky contrast.” Click through the gallery to see a few of our favorites. Tell us: Would you wear a mini midi?
