If you still associate Elie Tahari
with well-priced corporate wear, a trip to his boutique might be in order. The designer has worked steadily to offer shoppers on-point (but not overly trendy) wares that work just as well on the boardwalk as in the boardroom. Case in point: Spring's offerings included a chic linen jumpsuit and a great black perforated-leather bomber jacket paired with a simple gray jersey T-shirt dress. Some looks felt a bit fast-fashion-y for the retailer (a ladylike tweed jacket paired with cuffed sweatpants and heels, for example), but things rarely got that contrived. "This collection is all about effortless dressing," Tahari insisted, and he mostly lived up to his words.
