Our Fall Shopping Guide went up yesterday, the result of weeks spent poring over lookbooks and clicking through countless runway shows. I love the moto vests in our Biker Brigade trend; I can see myself sporting the acid-washed denim William Rast version (at $420, it’s doable for a staple piece) with cuffed twill pants or a flirty little dress. I’m not exactly the type to do underwear-as-outerwear, as seen in the Boudoir Crossing trend, but I’m excited to try ADAM’s sheer chiffon menswear shirt ($245) with slouchy flannel trousers, and his charmeuse pajama pants ($295) against a chunky knit sweater. The Style.com dress code is more “creative” than “corporate,” but there’s several pieces from our Smart Investments category I’m planning to incorporate into my office style. Ann Taylor’s perfect embossed-croc pump pictured above (a steal at $175) will add polish to any outfit—even, yes, my new acid-washed William Rast jacket and twill pants.
We had a feeling it was more than just our animal instincts when we did a double take on this pretty much perfect leopard-print wiggle dress in the window of Ann Taylor in the Flatiron the other week. We prefer the term “cheap chic” to the less-sexy phrase “midlevel fashion,” but it doesn’t matter what you call it; this morning The New York Times confirmed we’re not the only ones who think Ann Taylor, Talbots, et al. are starting to look good. Really. And don’t think we’re not going to spend the rest of the morning trying to figure out how to get our hands on those high heels from Liz Claiborne without having to brave the crowds at Macy’s.
