I don’t know why I chose this exercise, especially; I suppose it felt like a challenge. And so it was: you have to wade through lots of this type of thing to get to anything good, but there are cute items to be had, for cheap as long as you can exercise a zen state of detachment regarding synthetic fibers. I’d layer this linen dress with a skinny long-sleeved tee and tights.
A poppy yellow flannel shirt is so bright and unexpected.
I love the idea of a faux fur jacket in green for weekend kicking around.
I used to dislike cable knit sweaters so much that at Lucky, the market editors knew to call them in for shoots at their own peril, but now I think I was really wrong about that. I’ve grown to very much like them, especially when there’s a little something going on to keep things interesting. Here it’s the excellent color, and the cool texture of the knit.
Similarly, I almost never show anything brown here, but it somehow fits the really good print on this button-down.
A graphic plaid sweater like this could go punk, preppy, or mod, depending on your mood.
This suede trench is actually pretty solid—retroish and classic at once. It reminds me of Michael Kors when Michael Kors was good.
Something about the idea of a red cardi as a layering piece with a pretty floral dress appeals.
I love the idea of wearing this liner jacket under a heavy coat on really cold days.
This camo raincoat is a fun alternative to the classic yellow slicker.
