Each month, we drop by a ton of previews to learn about the latest fragrances, nail polishes, earrings and handbags that will soon hit stores. We see thousands of items and, each month, we list the fashion and beauty finds that have made it onto our shopping list. Here’s our top 10 picks for March:
1. Graphic black-and-white sweatshirt
This sweatshirt is a statement piece if there ever was one. Pair it with slim cigarette pants and finish the look with pointed flats for a polished work outfit.
Bedrock woven sweatshirt, $78, loft.com.
2. Lavender nail polish
CND’s long-wear polish in Beckoning Begonia is a shade between pink and purple and features subtle flecks of shimmer. It’ll make your fingertips look like candy.
CND Vinylux Weekly Polish in Beckoning Begonia, $12, cnd.com.
3. Pointed flats
Pointy-toed flats feel dressy enough for work without the discomfort of a four-inch heel. This pair from Joe Fresh has dainty bows on the toes.
Bow flats, $59, joefresh.com.
These 10 finds made our fashion and beauty list for February.
4. Subtle bronzer
Harsh, shimmery bronzers are so 1999. Instead, look for a powder that offers a luminescent pinkish glow. This Guerlain Healthy Glow compact does the trick.
Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint Natural Healthy Glow Powder, $60, at Guerlain stores and counters as of March 15, 2015.
5. Wear-everywhere sheath dress
Both sporty and Hawaiian, this printed sheath can be dressed down with flip-flops or dressed up with heels. Plus, the mix of white and burgundy means it can work for spring or fall.
424 Fifth floral sheath dress, $119, thebay.com.
6. Luxe earrings
Swarovski offers a wide mix of affordable jewels at its glittering shops. These earrings caught our eye at a recent preview and we would wear them anytime, day or night. Why save sparkle for special occasions?
Citrus pierced earrings, $115, swarovski.com as of March 16, 2015.
7. Creamy lipstick
For easy application and a vibrant-hued pucker, try Lise Watier’s new liquid lipsticks in a variety of red and pink tones. You can even skip lip liner because the applicator is so precise!
Lise Watier Baiser Velours, $27 each, lisewatier.com.
8. Neon-accented bathing suit
White-and-blue stripes suggest a retro nautical theme, but shots of neon yellow make this swimsuit much more modern. The top can be worn two ways and the high-waisted bottoms disguise tummy troubles.
2-in-1 convertible top, $37, and high-waist bikini bottom, $25, lavieenrose.com.

9. Floral fragrance
Inspired by the smell of stage makeup from the early 20th-century, this new perfume from Chanel features notes of violet, Turkish rose and iris—a powdery, romantic floral with sweet undertones.
Les Exclusifs de Chanel Misia, $180/75mL, holtrenfrew.com.
10. Cute jeans
How amazing are these cropped Liu Jo jeans with stars spattered across the front? Worn with a simple sweater or T-shirt and a pair of heels, they’re just the right level of adorable for a grown-up.
Jeans, $210, liujo.com as of mid-March.
