* A luxury fashion watch for under $200 – plus an extra 15% off for SPY readers
* New finds from online retailer, Everlane
* Skincare tips from supermodel, Christie Brinkley
You don’t have to be a millionaire to live like one. The key is to shop smart, focusing on pieces that will work for you on multiple occasions, and pieces that will last for years to come. Start with these five lists, which give you some solid pieces and items to start with, whether you’re upgrading your closet, footwear game or skincare routine.
1. Vincero: A Luxury Fashion Watch For Under $200 Exists
Sure, a smartwatch can help you track steps at the gym, but it won’t help you in the boardroom or at the bar. A rubber strap and constantly flashing digital screen doesn’t exactly scream “hire me” or “date me.” If you’ve been permanently wearing your smartwatch around your wrist, it’s time to step up your game.
The good news: luxury is no longer synonymous with expensive. If you’re looking to upgrade your watch collection, we’d suggest starting with Vincero.
2. The 6 Pieces From Everlane You Should Be Stocking Up On
When Everlane launched in 2011 with a line of T-shirts, it did so by being completely transparent about where the tees was made, how much it cost them to manufacture, and a slew of other factoids so that consumers knew exactly what they were paying for. The brand has continued this tradition as they’ve expanded their offerings to a now full line of modern basics.
Because Everlane is a direct-to-consumer brand and chooses to be transparent about its items, you know exactly what you’re paying for every time. Everlane even includes the “traditional retail” price of every item it sells online because that’s how radically transparent they want to be. Not only that, their effortless styles offer an elevated spin on everyday basics that everyone needs in their closets.
3. Christie Brinkley Talks Beauty, Skin Care & Her New Cosmetics Collection
Supermodel-turned-entrepreneur Christie Brinkley recently launched her first-ever color cosmetics line, Authentic Beauty. The new addition to her brand is a curated collection of treatment-based color cosmetics, with skin care benefits meant to enhance your natural beauty and improve your skin, like a serum or good moisturizer.
The model’s latest endeavor into makeup is an extension of her successful skin care brand, Authentic Skin Care. We sat down with the industry icon to talk about supermodel skin and what we can expect with her first release of makeup products.
4. Off-White: 10 Pairs Of Sneakers To Wear Instead Of White Kicks
It’s winter and your all-white kicks should probably be put away for the season. And in their place, should be any one of these wonderfully stylish and comfortable off-white sneakers, mostly in a shade of gray. Why? Because it’s always hard to tell when gray or silver objects are dirty, like your car, and the same goes for sneakers. Plus fashion trends come and go and it’s probably to give those white sneakers a little break too, if you want to stand out from the crowd.
