Jeanne Beker helps us spring ahead with three sets of on-trend picks

She helps select the swingin’ saddlebags, off-the-shoulder tops and wrap skirts that will fill your closet this season

(A) Jeanne’s pick
Ela, elabyela.com, $340
“This is a quality bag you can have forever. I love this colour — kind of a grey–blue — and this rich thick tassel that adds a bit of fun to it. It’s locally designed; it’s Canadian!”

(B) Detail oriented
Chloé at Holt Renfrew, 50 Bloor St. W., $915
“Everyone loves Chloé — who doesn’t?! It’s not cheap, but it’s very very luxe. The stitching is fantastic, and it has a nice long strap. It’s both practical and stylish.”

(C) Hard edge
Mackage at Andrews, Bayview Village, $340
“I am so impressed with the Mackage bags. Quality styling, beautiful fabrications and great hardware like the chevrons that run along the side of this one.”

(D) Relax, don’t do it
Aritzia, CF Promenade, $60
“This is the skirt version of the yoga pant! Nice below-the-knee length; nice high slit; nice high waist. You could dress it up a bit with a leather jacket and a substantial shoe.”

(E) Beatnik blues
Canopy Blue, 2582 Yonge St., $265
“This is just a classic — the whole romantic boho chic look. I like the pretty, pretty print and the fringes. It’s elasticized, so you could wear it pulled over your shoulders or not.”

(F) Chic outline
Thursdays, 1130 Yonge St., $120
“This is wonderful. You don’t see many vertical stripes. The crepey fabric drapes really beautifully and comes totally off the shoulder. Nice little cuff detailing.”

(G) Wrap it up
TOPSHOP, Yorkdale Shopping Centre, $110 
“There’s a wonderful weight to this faux wrap skirt. I love the dove grey and the midi length that’s all the rage. Very elegant.”

(H) Jean Genie
Thursdays, 1130 Yonge St., $130
“This is a really fresh look. You’ve got a full sleeve with a nice little tie. Very casual, very simple, and the material is so lightweight — it’s a chambray.”

(I) Swing low
Beaufille at Clementine’s, 1260 Yonge St., $415
“I just love Beaufille and love what they do. This skirt is a sponge neoprene and is a true wrap, slung nice and low. There’s a great edge and a great modernity to this.”

(J) Stripe dream
Ted Baker, Yorkdale Shopping Centre, $219
“Really, this is just a skinny little pencil skirt, but the illusion is that it’s a wrap. There’s just a great amount of stretch; a wonderful travel piece. So cool.”
