“In the 70s and 80s, it was very unlikely to mix your patterns, textures, and proportions of clothing – the recombining of these advocates the unlikely yet contemporary combinations within our line, which then extends itself to your own fashion story. Today we're featuring ladylike looks, dressing up with a twist... in this case, we're incporporating alternative textures and colors; and, if you take away one style 'tool' from this post: never banish the color combo of navy & black! it's a new classic!"
HIGH PRICE POINT, LOOK 1: from left to right, some covetable items for your closet... Vanessa Bruno's Wool and Cashmere Coat next to SCOUT's Grand Plan Travel Tote in True Brit is the perfect color accent to this look; an otherwise simple navy minidress, this McQ Alexander McQueen Long-Sleeve Dress has ribbed detail on the shoulders and elbow patches to give it contemporary edge; Falke's Lace Net Tights are the epitome of ladylike with floral texture; finish off the look with Christian Louboutin's Bambou 140 Suede Pumps.
LOW PRICE POINT, LOOK 2: from left to right, perfectly priced items to incorporate into your wardobe... Gap's Textured Wool Coat is a welcomed pop of seasonless color with this navy & black look; run lunch-hour errands with SCOUT's Bagette Market Tote in Wavy Navy; wear Sandro's Navy Knit Dress, a ribbed minidress with a ladylike collar; Anna Sui's Solid Navy Tights are just-right not only for this look, but for most skirted looks you'll wear through this fall and winter; Pella Moda's Page Suede T-Strap Pumps will be key for height under high and low hemlines, whether under skirts or wide-legged trousers.
