I'm sure you can see why everyone wants a piece of Camilla Skovgaard's heels. The Londoner's unique architectural aesthetic is breathlessly sophisticated with a funky touch. Stomp loud, stomp proud.
Vests are the best quick fix when you're experiencing a fashion road block. Throw on one of these off-kilter styles when your outfit — dress, jeans, skirt, whatever — is blah or missing something. Trust, it will instantly jazz you up and set you apart on the sidewalk.
Cutouts have shown up on every part of a garment imaginable, in all shapes and sizes. Here's a crop of the coolest cutouts out there. From shark-bite-style to tattered, sleek to sporty, these pieces are sure to make you cutting-edge come Fall.
Thanks to Nicolas Ghesquière, a draped skirt is at the top of everyone's fall must-have list. His Fall 2009 collection for Balenciaga revealed numerous examples, each one more glamorous than the next. Luckily, there are plenty of styles on the market for fall. We especially love the jersey renderings, sent out by contemporary designers like Alexander Wang.
When the fall color palette starts to feel dull, try a rich wintery print to enliven your wardrobe. We love the look of a romantic paisley frock worn with black tights and ankle boots or platforms. Throw over your investment outerwear--perhaps a 1940's-inspired coat or a brave statement fur--and you'll stand out in the sea of black and navy.
Whether it's an animal print or a print of an animal, this fall designers are triggering our animal instincts. Go for unabashed renderings and pair them with basic items like jeans, leggings and t-shirts. Our favorite offering so far? Diane Von Furstenberg's velvet a-symmetrical dress is elegant, on-trend and retails for a very reasonable $300.
Menswear-inspired clothing never goes out of style so stock up on the essentials. An oxford shirt, brogue shoe, boyfriend trouser, collegiate tote, houndstooth jacket and wool waistcoat are all classic menswear items. Mix and match them with more feminine elements or go for the full-on Annie Hall look. Either way, you'll look sophisticated and confident.
Fringe necklaces come in all styles this fall--from haute hippie to goth goddess. We love statement necklaces so this trend is right up our alley. Wear one of these fringe necklaces during the day with classic jeans and a t-shirt, and, for evening, with your favorite LBD and platform sandals. Both looks will go from classic to high fashion in an instant.
