Culottes

October 16, 2014

All of the sudden, they’re everywhere…that hybrid between full cut pants, and an easy skirt. They hit anywhere from just below the knee, to just above the ankle, and come in fabrics ranging from leather to fluid silk. Yep, you guessed it; the culotte is back! Reminiscent of the 70’s, the culotte is making a comeback, and the look is more modern than ever.

Today’s culottes are versatile enough to be worn casually with a sweater, or more elegantly with a blazer. Designers have been seeding the idea for a few seasons now, and this fall, the culotte is the “it” silhouette to own.

Gucci’s pre Fall collection in 2011 featured culottes with a chunky cable sweater and boots that looks perfect, several seasons later.

Soft and fluid, or in green leather, culottes are the perfect daytime option to a skirt or trousers.

I’m With The Band(eau)

August 27, 2014

Young Hollywood turned out for the awards ceremonies this week, and the accessory of choice was a toned midsection.

The VMA’s drew an edgier crowd, with black leather playing a starring role.

Miley rocked a leather bandeau with high waisted leather pants, for a look that was sexy and age appropriate.

She also stole the show for a second year in a row, shedding last year’s raunchy image for a surprising show of humanity when a homeless youth accepted her award, bringing awareness to the cause.

Lucy Hale mixed her leather halter top with a full black skirt for a look that was “a little bit country, and a little bit rock and roll.”

Kendall Jenner added a sheer layer over her black bra and high rise trousers, creating a look that was youthful and tasteful. She and her sister Kim texting during the silent tribute to the residents of Ferguson, was not.

The following night, Sarah Hyland took the trend to a more formal and demure place, with her white cropped top and orange princess style skirt.

Caramelized

October 18, 2012

What’s not to love about caramel? It’s rich and adds a luxurious texture to everything; including clothing.

For spring 2013, designers showed caramel colored leathers that as crave worthy as their namesake sweet.

Akris showed head to toe caramel leather.

Both Fendi and Billy Reid paired their leather back to crisp white shirts.

Burberry went pants free with their short leather trench style jacket in new proportions.

Luxury leather goods maker Hermes layered a leather vest and cotton trench over white shorts.

As you start to develop your fall wardrobe, think about adding a little caramel leather in clothing or accessories. It’s an investment that will take you through the entire year.
