David Tlale’s button-down blouse on steroids is certainly swoon worthy. The hi-waist hot pants add a bit of playfulness to traditional Ankara print fabric.

This pretty shade of pink is super sweet, while the double split –– in full effect this season, is a super sexy finish.

This cool blue get-up, with what looks like a photo print of branches, is the fun equivalent to a jumpsuit with a little crop intervention.

Like navy and black, who knew tangerine and this gorgeous salmon shade would look lovely together? The dressed-up and dressed-down appeal of this outfit makes the look all the better.

If there were one coat you could keep in your closet to pair with every piece, this would be it. It's neutral shade, defined waist and feminine flair is what makes this a winning piece –– not to mention the psychedellic patterned pants.

We won’t even get into the many reasons why this look is Olivia Pope-approved, but this minimal, futuristic all the while classic-feeling coat is on our wish list.
