Jenny Kayne’s 2008 Fall Collection

I recently attended fashion designer, Jenny Kayne’s, Fall preview collection and was delightfully surprised with what I saw…scroll down to see a few of my favorite looks.

This brown leather belt is the perfect addition to this pretty floral silk dress. Adding just enough contrast with the difference in material, this accessory gives the dress a slight edge and steers it away from becoming too prim and proper.

I adore the combination of these two textures and styles. This look comes together creating a laid back, yet uniquely chic look perfect for a night out or a dressy dinner party with friends. It inspired me to look into the depths of my own closet to see what unassuming gems I might find and be able to pair together, in hopes of mimicking this great look.

Something about this outfit just makes me so happy. I think it is the mix of the high-waisted shorts and the “boyfriend” shirt, which, in this particular case, reminds me of something Grace Kelly would wear in “To Catch a Thief.” Sigh. I love her in that movie. So flawless. So effortless.  The shorts offer a structural element, with their tailored seams, which really completes this look for me. End result: casual, yet stylish and well put together. Below, a similar look:

Photograph taken while out and about, I liked how this outfit used similar elements and found it to be a cute and more affordable alternative to Kayne’s version shown above. To get this look, check out these links:

Shorts from Forever 21: Pleated High Waist Short w/Belt. Side note…belts are one of my favorite accessories, but there are times when a look need not be complicated by one. The belt on these particular shorts is removable, so I advise taking it off in order to achieve this particular look.)

As always, thanks for viewing…à demain! xx
