Leave it to J.Crew to take an elegant staple and make it dazzle. The always classic striped nautical tee is updated with rows of sequins along every stripe in the front to create a glistening effect. Whether you make it part of a festive ensemble or add it to your favorite lived-in denim, your look will twinkle and shine in swank style.
Go Sherlock-chic this fall with an extra-layer-meets-finishing-touch piece. The versatile Capulet Cape by Alexandra Grecco is made from luxurious black wool crepe and is as pretty as can be. Use it to soften up a denim ensemble or slip it on over your favorite little dress for a touch of ladylike drama.
I like it!!Quote Bag Studio on Etsy is all about small collections that focus on few-of-a-kind designs made from rich textiles and leather. Created in Bangkok, Thailand their look is refreshing in a sea of heavily adorned designer bags. From shoulders bags to styles that can be worn several ways.
Finally, horizontal stripes that work for any figure! The Bleeker Stripe Sweater by Mink Pink is a dreamy and casual off-the-shoulder piece that boasts a boxy, oversized silhouette. Wear it alone or layer it over your favorite tank and best pair of skinnies – you can worry about your midsection later.
Alber Elbaz's Grecian draping and asymmetrical shapes haven't gone anywhere for Spring 2011. They have, however, taken up lodging with some new sporty elements and understated leather harness details. As always Elbaz' work for Lanvin catches your attention as much for the accessories as the clothing - and this time around, both the shoes (heeled and flat), jewellery, and bags are to die for.
Mixing a sensual cocktail of sheer maxi dress and delicate lace works out superbly for Natalia Vodianova. The barely-there bit of lace over her eyes is the ideal way to tick the masquerade theme box without going over the top on an ornate mask.
