My Perfect Skirt, Cont.

The ’90s are back in a big way (in my book and wardrobe, they never left). The satin slip dress had it’s moment, but the skirt is the way to go. Wear now with a tee and sandals then transition into fall with sweaters and sneakers—perfection.

Nili Lotan sweater, Vince satin skirt and more great colors here, Converse sneakers.

Skirt Around

Skirts are firmly on my radar for fall and I’m waiting for UPS before I respond to a few of the comments on my previous post. This one, on a Copenhagen Spring 2018 fashion week attendee, is pretty perfect, too. Gotta love an A-line, so flattering.

My Perfect Skirt

Contrast stitching + to-the-knee length + a flirty flair + good price point = my dream skirt. This Marc Jacobs skirt ticks all the boxes—I’d wear it now with sandals and a tee, then an oversized sweater and sneakers (Converse) in the fall.

Books

Legendary Authors and The Clothes They Wore

Writers may not be the first group that comes to mind when thinking of stylish people, but journalist Terry Newman would beg to differ and her new book, Legendary Authors and the Clothes They Wore, proves her right. The Tory Burch blog has an excellent review with lots of vintage pictures and quotes.

Three Easy Pieces

I don’t need much for fall, but a few updated accessories would be a good idea. I was inspired by Annina Mislin’s The Row bag and quite like it in grey. The Chloé Perry pumps are on my list, also in grey. And new sunglasses are a must. I keep trying the Céline version of the Wayfarer and they are just too big on me, no matter how many times I put them on—perhaps it’s time to try Ray-Bans, they are the original Wayfarer, after all..

Red (is) Hot, cont.

Yesterday I was musing about the abundance of red items for fall. A cherry striped sweater, brick clutch, and burgundy velvet platforms would be nice additions to my predominantly all-neutrals wardrobe. With so many shades to choose from, I don’t need something in fire engine to feel like I’m embracing the trend.

Red (is) Hot

Like Claudia Schiffer’s lovely guest bedroom in September AD, I love red accents in my home. In fashion, red has been gaining momentum and is now the hot color for fall. A red dress is kind of a neutral, but red shoes, bags, gloves, etc. are statement pieces in my book and I can’t decide if I’m on board with this trend. To be continued…

Zara FW17 Campaign

Mix it Up

Zara is my favorite fast fashion fix, and over the years I’ve found a number of great items. The trick is to choose carefully and never wear a look head-to-toe—it’s all about a high/low mix. The stunning FW17 campaign shot by Steven Meisel and styled by Karl Templer showcases a number of pieces that would slide nicely into my wardrobe.
