Get ready for the next season with classic wardrobe essentials that will get you ready for fall. From classic black dresses to structured jackets, choose pieces you can mix and match with tailored shirts and pencil skirts.  We love a variety of charcoal and classic gray paired with classic accessories from Saint Laurent, Harry Winston, and Hermès.  Mix a bit of metals – gold and silver with textured leather for the perfect palette.

Color Story: Beige



One of our favorite go-to neutrals to transition our summer wardrobes into fall is beige and here’s your proof that it’s far from boring.  Beige accessories paired with a white dress is the essential chic attire for a hot day.  And, with this roundup of some of our favorite pieces at the moment from Highland Park Village, it’s easy to say that this hue has never looked so good. Whether you choose a classic handbag like the Lady Dior in quilted leather or a timeless scarf from Hermès like this one, these are selections that will ease their way into any wardrobe.  For a standout item this season, shop the Saint Laurent Classic Curtis Fringe Jacket or the Frankie Loafers for Stella McCartney.  For a eye-catching touch, we recommend the Leather Skull Card Holder from Alexander McQueen.

Get Embellished With Stella McCartney

Even with soaring summer temperatures, with clothing like this, it’s certainly not too early to look towards fall and to start choosing our favorite pieces. For Stella McCartney’s fall 2014 collection, it’s all about embellishment.  Each piece is unique and from tassels, lace, and other decorative details, each item tells a story of its own.  Whether you choose a handbag, jacket, or dress, owning a piece of fringe next season is a must.  For tassels, we recommend the Greta dress. For a classic twist on a blazer, shop the June jacket in halo dot jacquard.  Looking for a twist on fall’s trousers?  The Cut Shibori Pants are some of our favorites – with green wool mimicking tie-dye patterns.  The jumpsuit must-have for autumn is certainly the Camelia-All-In-One in a rich burgundy.  For outerwear, shop the Grady Coat with mountain cording details in an array of colors.  And, be sure to give your footwear a refresh with the Britt Shoes.  They are sure to add a bit of whimsy to any attire.
