With those events in mind, this month's shopping list is all about stunning, snap-worthy street-style jewels, eye-catching handbags, and bold separates that will survive the Winter-to-Spring transition. When the midseason slump has you feeling uninspired, our editors' picks are sure to give your cold-weather look a much-needed lift. From Tibi's lobster-printed skirt to an irresistible (and budget-friendly) pair of exotic statement earrings from ASOS, see and shop our February must haves now!
We've been smitten with London denim brand MiH Jeans for a while now. Not only does its denim fit like a dream — one of our editors owns three pairs — we love how the cuts and silhouettes are modern yet classic at the same time. For its Fall lookbook, the brand dreamed up a vision of throwback cool via high-rise flares, dark denim skinnies, cozy corduroy pants, and even some special collection pieces like a '50s style leather biker jacket. Additionally, we're taking cues from the lookbook and plan on styling our denim with tailored tops and felt hats for a sexy downtown aesthetic. Check out our top three picks below, then check out the rest of the lookbook in the slideshow.

There was a '70s redux on the Spring 2011 runways, to say the least, and we spotted the look off the runway, too. Between Paris Fashion Week shows, we admired this leggy cutie's way with layering and pairing shades of green. Her throwback jeans and leather jacket emanate that '70s feel, while classic black heeled boots and polished Celine tote add an equestrian touch. Get her look with similar items from MiH jeans, Chloe, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Diane von Furstenberg.

If zippered jeans or shoes weren't your flavor, give zippy tops a try. The way I see it, zippered tops — a la tanks, tees, tunics — are a low-commitment, high-style risk. There are tons of affordable options for you to experiment with and major fashion points to be earned. Ashley Greene rocked a print version with high-waisted MiH jeans and a Gucci bag for a radically '70s look while walking the streets in LA. I kinda love it.
