There’s another amazing-sounding collaboration on tap for this fall—Yasmin Sewell for Barneys New York—and I almost feel like I’m living in a dream. In the past handful of years, we’ve grown accustomed to crazy-good partnerships, but once this fall rolls around, watch out! There’s Alexander Wang for H&M, Altuzarra for Target, and the promising-sounding handbag Diane Kruger is working on for Jason Wu. It’s enough to make your head spin.
Sewell’s 18-piece women’s collection will include statement outerwear and classic separates, with an emphasis on silhouette and proportions (per a release from the luxe department store). “There’s a need for functionality that has to be met with a great taste level…and a certain timelessness. This collection is really personal to me: In many ways it is like my ultimate wardrobe,” she said in a statement.
If you aren’t already familiar with the fashion consultant’s style, let us fix that, pronto.
Mastering the art of layering is the sign of a true fashion pro. I don’t think I would’ve ever thought to put on a long-sleeve tee under this draped dress, but it combines for an effortlessly cool look.
Here, proof a simple, light gray coat is the easiest way to look ever so sharp.
If you’re like me, the jean jacket has been in your wardrobe for many, many years. Revive it with ideas stolen from this look: Let a blouse peek out from underneath, and wear it with a button or two closed.
A would-be formal skirt looks totally normal for day with her tucked-in tee, sleeves rolled for a casual feel, am I right?
A sailor-striped Mickey Mouse shirt feels chic, not juvenile, when worn with peg-leg trousers and a blazer.
This outfit’s so simple (and comfortable!), but it’s my very favorite of all! The cropped jeans, the oversize bubble-gum-color sweater, the classic heels—each piece works brilliantly together.
