23 cool things to buy in March, according to Vogue editors

The pieces she and her sister produce are the pinnacle of American minimalism and luxury. They are often smart, timeless and contemporary. This jacket is sporty and practical, with a cut that borders on perfection.

March is my birthday month, so I overdid it a bit with the “treat yourself” mentality… Also, a few days in Paris certainly didn’t help my shopping habit. I bought these beautiful Marni earrings at 50% off at Galeries Lafayette, and they have already earned me a handful of compliments at vogue HQ.

After some trial and error to get back on the vitamin C bandwagon, I was very impressed with the Strivectin Serum, which feels a bit like a retinol-vitamin C hybrid. After a week of use, I’m already starting to notice that my most recent dark spots fade and my skin is visibly brighter without any of the usual irritation that can come with using a new active ingredient.

Also, I was looking for SPF protection that wasn’t too heavy on the skin. Creamy sunscreens are great for the colder months, but as the temperatures warm up I switch them up. The new sunscreen milk is so light I forget I have it on – the only telltale sign being a sun-kissed glow that feels as good as it looks.

And these shoes might be my most comfortable pair. I dressed them up every chance I got, whether it was a tiered mesh skirt or cargo pants. Not only do they look fun, but they also make walking more enjoyable thanks to the super plush midsoles.

So-called “max-cushion” shoes — think soft, buoyant concoctions that promise the feel of smooth, low-impact strides — have been huge in the running world over the past few years, and I’ve welcomed most options I’ve tried. None of them, however, delivered the visceral, lightweight joy of On’s new Cloudmonster shoes. Right out of the box, walking down the hallway of my apartment with this on my feet made me smile almost in disbelief at the bounce and cushion. Already my favorite shoes for running, yes, but for airports, travelling, exploring, going out. Total game changers.

While waiting for New York to decide if it’s still winter or spring, I’ve found a new transitional wardrobe staple. Enter the denim shirt, which I stole straight from my grandmother’s closet (no kidding!). I paired it with black pleated pants, layered it over a white tee or light sweater, and even used the oversized shirt as a jacket on one of those balmy March days. Although I was lucky enough to find my own, there are currently many similar timeless options on the market.

My hair is grateful that I finally got over the idea that hair hold should be stiff, hard or sticky. For all-day hold and combating stubborn flyaways, Cantu’s wax stick was an essential step for my ponytails and buns. Unlike water-based hair gels, it doesn’t curl my hair or weigh my strands down. Honestly, I don’t know how I lived without it.

Last month’s Ssense sale prompted me to buy something I’ve been eyeing for years: Margiela Tabis. And not just any pair of Tabis, but an adorable pair of Tabi slingback pumps, which look a lot more like me than the ubiquitous boots, and they’ll be perfect for the warmer months!

I’m more than happy to put away my turtlenecks and break out the crop tops. In a pop-up shop for folklore, I saw this beautiful top hanging on a rack and it was love at first sight. Yes, it’s technically a bikini top, but I plan to wear it with high waisted pants once the weather warms up.

Denim Forum knows how to make good jeans. The Arlo style is true to size (for those who rely solely on online shopping), comfortable, and just plain good classic straight-leg denim, perfect for everyday wear. It was a date last month.

A year ago, I lost my grandmother Agnès Valenti. As part of the healing process, and to pay tribute to the immeasurable impact she had on me, I wanted to use the money she left me to buy a piece of jewelry. I immediately thought of Hudson-based sustainable jewelry designer Gabrielle Valenti, who coincidentally shares our last name (fate!) and crafts the most mesmerizing sculptural gold pieces. Just in time for spring and my grandmother’s birthday in late April, Gabrielle crafted a personalized 14k gold flower ring punctuated with a moonstone, associated with inner growth and strength, and a heart-shaped peridot, which is the stone of compassion. It’s so unique and beautiful and reflects my Grandmother Aggie’s legacy. I love looking at her throughout the day to remind myself that she is always with me.

In early March, I found a juniper evening jacket—a sample of the Balmain runway from several seasons ago—at my favorite vintage boutique in Paris, Plus Que Parfait. I’ve never been particularly drawn to Balmain, but the simple, structured piece is as versatile as it is beautiful. For the past few weeks, I’ve worn it with a turtleneck, tie, T-shirt, and even nothing underneath. A current version is available to allow you to go from winter to spring and from day to night.

Yes, it is possible to get longer, thicker eyelashes without fakes or extensions. Hence why vogue readers couldn’t get enough of GrandeLash. It is a serum that prolongs the growth phases of eyelashes and darkens them.
