Key Takeaways: Feminine ease is the underlying theme for this Rebecca Taylor collection. None of the pieces make a fuss; they are simply effortless, and yet so chic. Sheer blouses and dresses are sexy in the most innocent sense. One can imagine a Rebecca Taylor protege lunching in one of these outfits.
Color Palette: Neutral tones such as beige, off-white, light pink, with a dusting of brown, blue, black.
Silhouettes: Button-down short sleeve sheer blouses; loose, sheer, long-sleeve dresses; high waisted tweed skirts; flowy trousers; cropped jackets; feminine short trench coats.
Accessories Report: A brown and camel-colored shoulder purse is feminine and earthy; thin belts with square hardware sit prettily at the waist; string belts with mini knit balls hanging at the end are a nice alternative to the structured belts we’ve been seeing everywhere; the shoes are an open-toed platform a bit reminescent of the 70’s.
What’s Wearable: The shoes are ideal for a sunny shopping day, while the sheer blouses (with a cami underneath), skirts, and dresses are perfect for lunching.
What’s Not Wearable: A lingerie-like sheer mini dress is perfect for the bedroom but not the outdoors. Likewise, a pair of silk daisy dukes is also best worn in your home.
