Editors’ Picks are the Fashionista team’s true (#notspon) fashion and beauty obsessions, handpicked by professionals who see it all.

Team Fashionista recently had the distinct pleasure of having Dhani back in New York City. When we all reunited, she arrived in a black vest styled as a top with loose trousers and oval sunglasses — very Kate Moss meets Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy. 

Now, Dhani is, in my eyes, one of the chicest people ever, so the ‘fit itself wasn’t a surprise. What did surprise me, though, was how I left thinking: Should I… get a vest? 

In reality, this question was already in the back of my mind, the seed planted by a visit to the Kallmeyer studio many months ago. I’ve admired the brand — and its commitment to classic silhouettes in impeccable fits and mindful production — for a long time. At a preview of its Spring 2023 collection, I was drawn to its structured, wide-leg Madelynn trouser (named after designer Daniella Kallmeyer’s publicist, also an incredibly chic person), which was paired with a one-button vest that creates a gorgeous silhouette, made out of a delicious chocolate-brown linen. 

These pieces can exist separately, beautifully (and that’s how they’re meant to be thought of — true wardrobe staples that can live many lives in your closet). But when brought together, they make for an easy but instantly memorable look. I might become a suit person because of it.
