Who: The Naturalist

What: The Seaport Penny in natural.
Why: The natural leather only gets better with age. Kinda like you.
Style it: Go with its low-key vibe (and yours). Pair with other easy, classic pieces for casual days, or up the ante to make these pennies after-hour appropriate.

Who: The Money Maker

Why: When you need to look like a million bucks, platinum does the trick. It’s our new favorite neutral.
Style it: Take it straight from meetings to martinis; just add a few other borrowed-from-the-boys pieces.
