qi_cashmere_dress.jpgThe best way to stop buying things you’ll never wear is to invest in classics instead of trendy, of-the-moment styles. And you can never go wrong with a sweater dress, like this one from our go-to cashmere company, Qi. The asymmetrical patches of suede keep the dress fresh, but it’s still something you can wear again and again, and style in different ways.

Riding a bike is going to be the chic thing to do in 2012. Many designers will be churning out bicycle-inspired collections for spring, since the eco way is now the trendy way to be! Fortunately, you don’t have to wear an ugly helmet to stay safe while cruising around on your wheels. We found these fashionable options from London-based Japanese designer Sawako Furuno that will keep you looking feminine and stylish during your ride. Fashion meets function with these helmets, which feature an EPS Shock absorbing liner, classic 11 air vent holes to keep your head cool, quick release buckles, and more. Find them at Cloak & Dagger for $198 each.cute_bike_helmuts_1_thumb.jpg
