Spring is nearing (March 20 can’t come soon enough) and that means the return of miniskirts is upon us. I, for one, am quite happy about it. This week, actor Evan Mock wore a perfect little bow tie, Henry Golding was spotted in an amazing suit, and Zoey Deutch sported a matching blue skirt and jacket that I cannot stop thinking about. For all these looks and more, scroll below.

Best Silhouette

The shape of this dress is everything. Without any big pieces of jewelry to catch our eye, we’re able to focus on and appreciate the overall effect.

Best Monochrome Dressing

An all-black ’fit is always appropriate, and when it takes the form of a suit and is on the body of Henry Golding, it’s an obvious win.

Most Vernal

The start of spring means the return of miniskirts, and I am so very thankful. A matching set is always a good idea, and paired with the green shirt underneath, it creates a perfect, bold look.

Best Texture

The texture and pops of pastel draw attention to what could have been an unremarkable all-white look.

Best Bow Ties

Iconic for more than one reason, Mock and Collins’s matching bow ties might be the cutest thing I’ve seen all week. Collins’s whole look is iconic, really.

Best Sparkles

I’m pro-sparkles any day, especially when they’re pink. Plus, the matching laces on the boots are a lovely touch.

Best Plunge

A plunging neckline can be hard to pull off, but Wolfe does it well in this dramatic metallic-purple dress.

Best Group

Even though the only thing in common here is a black boot, each of these outfits screams cool.” I love the red coat and Tucker’s collar.
