Dior Addict Lip Glow
I often reach for lip color that’s barely there, like this Dior Addict Lip Glow—it responds to your chemistry and enhances the natural color of your lips. Saks Fifth Avenue, $29

Give the young adult in your life an edge, because proper etiquette is always stylish. Tiffany’s Table Manners for Teenagers at The Paper Tree, $18.

Sewdish Fish
OK, show of hands: Who’s in the Swedish fish aficionado club? Head to tail, it’s the friendliest licorice out there. Grab a bag at Kilwin’s.

Nuovo co-owner James Amato
When venturing out in the color of the moment, consider that confidence is just as key as styling. Take a cue from Nuovo co-owner James Amato, who was sure-footed in an eye-popping vintage crimson Moschino vest at the Nuovo/Saks anniversary celebration.
