For clients requesting womenswear, Hitchcock has recommendations for sleek suits, up-and-coming handbags, and chunky moccasins.

Check out stylist Victoria Hitchcock’s womenswear picks.


Gucci houndstooth dress — $US4,200

Hitchcock says Gucci’s wool midi dresses are in right now. Scrap the accompanying cape to this houndstooth number, and instead consider pairing the dress with a bomber jacket.

Sene Laurel FlexTech suit — $US595

Sene

Sene sells custom suits that can be ordered online. Hitchcock is a fan the Laurel suit, which has a double-breasted blazer and pants that Sene describes as “medium-waisted” with a “slouchy tailored look.”

Hitchcock described Sene’s fabrics as “phenomenal”; the Laurel suit comes in FlexTech, which Sene describes as an “athleisure fabric for exceptional comfort.” The best part? The suit is machine-washable.

Misty M Designs New York Bag — $US420

Misty M Designs

“For someone who wants to be one step ahead and have something still quite exclusive, and not overly priced,” Hitchcock recommends bags made by Misty M Designs. Besides being popular in Silicon Valley, Hitchcock has spotted the bags in cities across the country, including Austin, Seattle, Los Angeles, Dallas, and New York.

According to the website, each Misty M Designs bag is handmade in Northern California from hides sourced from local leather suppliers.

The “New York” bag can be worn as a tote or messenger bag, and it comes in black, cream, or brown.

Cydwoq Classic-W — $US321

Cydwoq

Cydwoq (pronounced “footpath”) is based in Burbank, California, and makes hand-crafted shoes. Cydwoq is committed to using biodegradable, water-based glues and vegetable tanned leather, according to its website.

Cydwoq says that the “pliable leather” used in its shoes “will literally mould to your feet, much like memory foam or gel inserts. Our shoes are known to become more comfortable as they age.”

Hitchcock likes the colour variation of Cydwoq’s Classic-W shoe and says they’re super-comfortable.

Hitchcock says the satin waistband on these tuxedo trousers adds a touch of elegance, and pairing them with a simple silk, spaghetti-strap top completes the look.
