A Kate Spade VP gives us a peek inside her stylish closet.
For Lalena, fashion is all about finding a balance. “The studs on the suede jacket and skirt (above) have a harder edge, so they go nicely with the frill of the flutter-sleeve top,” she says of the mix-andmatch separates she relies on for major meetings. She pairs a statement-making dress and earrings (opposite page) with approachable flats when greeting a new colleague. And a versatile chambray jumpsuit (left) is her secret weapon for casual days. “It’s easy to move in but flattering on many shapes. You can dress it up with heels or wear sandals if you’ll be walking from appointment to appointment.”
