Get Embellished With Stella McCartney

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.

The Fall Skirt

When it comes to fall, there’s nothing quite like a skirt to channel your mood.  From classic to feminine and trendy, skirts can easily take you from work to evening.  Pair it with a jacket for work and remove it to reveal your silk top that’s cocktail hour ready!   And, we love that you can pair them with tights and your favorite boots and flats.   Do you prefer skirts of solid leather or tweed or do you plan to be more adventurous with prints this fall?

Fall 2013 Coat Favorites

Gilet Wool Flannel Stripe – Arkis

According to September Vogue, the coat is the new handbag of fall fashion.  So, while the selection is ripe, pick the perfect outerwear for the new season. We’re inspired by the unique color block style of fall 2013 jackets from AKRIS and VINCE.  Or, if you prefer one bold statement, the high collar red coat from Dior is a must-have. The leather Turner coat from Rag & Bone in Mineral Green will add the perfect bit modern flair and zen to your autumn wardrobe (it’s edgy and sophisticated).  Or, if pure simplicity is your staple style: the Alison Coat from Stella McCartney is a forever piece.
