When it comes to choosing which key pieces you'll invest in each season, it's always reassuring to get the opinion of an expert. Luckily, we're here to help! Our very own Editor-in-Chief Joanna Coles sat down with Neiman Marcus' Fashion Director Ken Downing to discuss how women everywhere can translate trends that walked the Spring 2012 runways into the reality of their everyday wardrobes. These two are certainly knowledgable about all things sartorial a fact that's proven through their respective roles as a mentor and a judge on this season of Project Runway All Stars so it's no surprise that they know exactly what women want to wear, and perhaps most importantly, buy! Watch our exclusive video to find out what accessories you must add to your arsenal for Spring 2012. (Hint: Colors and costume jewelry are absolutely necessary.)
