The It List
Go West, Young Man For the hottest cowboy shirt ever, Just a Cheap Shirt’s newest is form-fitting with hip patches (check out the fortune cookie messages) typifying the trend to rugged, All-American styles. Stitch Boutique, 1463 Main St., (941) 366-7268
A Step Beyond The celebrity brand that was launched with glamorous stilettos just extended its allure with the must-have new fragrance of 2011: Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum (from $70). Saks Fifth Avenue, 3501 S. Tamiami Trail, (941) 364-5300
Over the Top Trade in your strappy sandals for high-impact pink suede boots ($590); the brave new world of evening fashion now pairs glam dresses with legs swathed in tights and bejeweled leather. T. Georgiano’s, 1409B First St., (941) 870-3727
Understated Elegance returns with the eagerly awaited relaunch of Chopard’s legendary 1990s Imperiale collection. Masculine at first glance, the stainless Imperiale is sleek, classic and feminine, too ($5,910). McCarver & Moser, 482 John Ringling Blvd., (941) 388-3666.
Doctor’s Orders Whether you call it a doctor bag or a lady satchel, the hot new bag is structured, retro and a healthy answer to the past decade’s oversized slouches ($550). Addison Craig, 28 S. Boulevard of Presidents, St. Armands Circle, (941) 388-3400.
Timeless Luxury is back in vogue, and the ultimate expression is a navy blazer. The Met has 15 posh options, but none as sumptuous as Ermenegildo Zegna’s version in midnight blue lambskin ($2,295). The Met Fashion House Day Spa & Salon, 35 S. Boulevard of Presidents, (941) 388-1772.
