"I don’t wear a ton of color—so I rely on pieces with a strong, graphic motif to make an impact," says associate accessories editor Melissa Karl, who favors checkerboard tops and wide-striped tees in classic black and white. "I love how they have a bold downtown vibe with a touch of ’80s charm." This season, Karl is accenting her patterned mix with metallic leather. "Everything looks cooler with a shiny silver jacket or copper clutch."
