Silk Blouse with Metal Collar Tips

Silk Shirt with Metal Collar Tips

True to our mission of style for all, we’d like to take the opportunity to feature standout pieces that are as stylish as they are attainable.  We’re loving this deliciously drapey shirt, as it exudes elegance - with just a hint of the wild.  Giving a nod to the fashion of the Wild West, this 100% silk shirt features something special: decorative metal tips at the collar.  We’ve been digging metal collar tips since Balenciaga’s Spring 2011 show, and we’re loving that these decorative collars are feeling increasingly wearable.

$79.90  at Zara.

Tulle Underwire Tank

tulle-underwire-tank_032511

Vintage French swimwear inspired this heavenly one-piece swimsuit, with its layers of sophisticated (and fast-drying) tulle. What we love is the versatility of the suit (you can remove the straps for a bombshell look) and its figure flattering cut - the layered tulle is kind to those not blessed with a washboard flat stomach. Grab this suit (or the bikini and brief version) now - it will surely sell out quickly.

$125  at J Crew.

(Faux) Shearling Lined Parka

fur-lined-parka_111410

Look beyond color and texture and create a look based on silhouette. We’re loving the dramatic oversized look of this faux shearling lined parka, which can serve as the star of your silhouette based look. If you live in a temperate climate, you can pair it with shorts, as seen on the model. But for colder climates, we’d recommend switching out the shorts for a close fitting pant or pair of leggings to maintain that gorgeous big-over-small silhouette.

Games by Firelight Top

Autumn style is all about layering - sweaters, jackets, scarves all find their place. But autumn layers need not all be heavy. In fact, we love the juxtaposition of a lightweight, gauzy top against a heavy sweater or jacket. This loosely fitting, half lace top will do the trick - just remember to slip on an extra tank underneath.

Extra bonus? This top works perfectly for Spring - so you’ll get double mileage from it.

$64.99  at ModCloth.

Camo Top

Army and military styles are supremely chic for Fall 2010. We’re loving this camo print tee for its greyed out take on traditional camouflage - and for how well it pairs with straight leg and skinny jeans.

$35  at Need Supply.

First Snow of the Season Coat

Snuggle up as the temperature drops this autumn in this pristine ivory coat. We love the funnel neckline and the the crisp military influence. What to wear with it? Try a skinny trouser pant and knee-high boots.
