This past season was all about pinks and turquoise and I loved every minute of it. This fall Chanel is still playing with lilac in their classic flap bag and many designers are mixing their darks with their pastels. The menswear trend is still showing up in the fall collections and one of the best out there is the Elizabeth and James collection by the Olsen twins. They played with textures, prints, and fabrics this season and came up in spades with menswear inspired jackets, ankle boots and skirts. IF you are thinking about what you will be wearing to see The Great Gatsby this Christmas starring Leonardo DiCaprio I suggest you invest in some Elizabeth and James.
One of my favorites from this past season was their pink blazer jackets in a shocking pink and ballerina slipper pink. They played with colors, but still created a menswear inspired well tailored jacket. You may think it is fall and you should be buying new Elizabeth and James and I agree, but I also think you should buy these great colored jackets to wear with your dark colors for fall on those rainy days when you need a pick me up. Also, by March after all the snow, slush, and rain, you will want to wear a bit of color again and pine for Spring to return.

Kate Hudson was seen in New York City with her son Ryder wearing a white button up shirt. The shirt is the Elizabeth and James Zip Back Cohen Shirt. It is a great light chic look that is so on trend to pair with this season’s cargo pants and platforms.
The Elizabeth and James Zip Back Cohen Shirt is another one of Mary Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen’s genius designs. They took a classic white button top made it sheer for summer and added a back zip detail for interest and functionality. The zip cinches the waist so that the top is flattering and not boxy which gives this menswear look a more feminine fit.

When I saw these Elizabeth and James Blaze sandals I liked them immediately for their high quality construction. The leather on the sandal is just exquisite and the design beautifully fashionable. When I tried the sandals on they were very flattering to the leg and to the feet. The zip in the back added a bit of interest as well as functionality. This is a must get shoe for the summer. Mary Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen are truly design mavens. The Row, Elizabeth and James, and their other lines are all well designed lines. For more updates on fashion for summer.
