Animal Pendant Necklace

British jewelry designer Bill Skinner — known for his work with high-end labels such as Van Cleef & Arpels, Vivienne Westwood and Burberry — teamed up with Anthropologie to create whimsical animal pendant necklaces. The collection, which includes a fox, a hare and an elephant, is crafted with precious stones and fine metals, but the pieces are easily affordable.

Allanah Tee From Tory Burch

Runway looks can seem impractical for everyday wear. Fortunately, designers are creating more wearable pieces to complement their couture collections. We love this tweet — er, sweet — T-shirt from Tory Burch, which has a step-by-step drawing of a bird. Dress it up with an A-line skirt or keep it casual with skinny jeans.

Available at, $125.
