"We aren't in the age of the Tudors anymore," Vera says. "There's no ease if everything's fitted within an inch of your life." These sumptuous fabrics and relaxed shapes can go to work or a party—or both. From left: Susan's brocade coat ($138) is an opulent topper for black jeans ($50) and a tie-front shirt ($54). Flats, $65. Rings, $75 to $100. Vertical color-blocking on a long-sleeved sheath ($128) makes size-4 Jocelyn look taller. D'Orsay heels, $70. Ring, $250.

Necklace, $375. Slingbacks, $70.
