Tina’s Top Five: Transitional Statement Pieces

Today’s high summer is tomorrow’s pre-fall, and this moment calls for new-season sparkle–and some expert-level beauty tricks. As Tina hops from Europe to East Hampton, she’s upping her style game with whimsical and transitional statement pieces juxtaposed against understated makeup. 


1. Self-Portrait Stretch Sequin Coat
Launched by my good friend Han Chong in 2013, Self-Portrait never fails to deliver unabashed femininity with a modern twist. Like this invigorating update on the trench coat: a laidback, swingy style cut from stretch-sequin fabric, so you’ll glisten from every angle, no matter where you go. Think of it as a fresh and fantastical take on the old sparkly party dress.”
Available at Self-Portrait.

2. Saint Laurent Frida Leather and PVC Slingback Pumps
“My ‘80s nostalgia is showing, thanks to Saint Laurent’s Me Generation-inspired collection. These mixed-media pumps may feature retro references, but with an angular silhouette punctuated by true stilettos, they’re instantly classic. Plus, a leaner heel means they’re more suitcase-friendly than my bulky platforms.”
Available at Net-a-Porter

3. Self-Portrait The Bow Mini in Pink with Diamanté
“The London-based label also has my approval when it comes to bags. Bows are having a moment right now, but I have yet to see a ribbon accent as arrestingly sculptural as this diamanté ornament. Set on a perky, little top-handle style, I need to carry this on my next trip. Bonus: It easily holds pieces of my Index Set, which I like to keep on-hand because you never know!"
Available at Self-Portrait.

4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze
“You don’t need an arsenal of products to achieve impeccable brows. Pro trick: Swipe your brow brush over this clear styling wax, then dip any shimmer-free eyeshadow that matches your own hair color of the moment for an instant bespoke laminate and brow dye.”
Available at Anastasia Beverly Hills.

5. Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Love Trap + The PLASMA Lip Compound
“I pair this shade of peachy brown liner, which accentuates the true color of my lips, with The PLASMA for my daily lip look, whether dressed up or down. A line, swipe, and done: a deliciously juicy pout that reads natural–but with plenty of pop.”
Available at Sephora and U Beauty.
