If getting wardrobe advice and outfit ideas from one of today’s biggest stylists seems like a fabulous daydream, then I’m in the business of making dreams come true. In celebration of a Gilt sale that launched today, Rachel Zoe is sharing five fabulous outfit ideas with just us, and, in a fun twist, the pieces she’s mentioning are from her pre-fall collection and available right now in the sale (and will be smart to transition into fall eventually—sigh). If you’re experiencing some symptoms of summer brain, getting dressed for work or brunch with the ladies is about to be way easier.
“Tuxedo dressing is an element I try to incorporate into every collection. I love the Easton asymmetrical mini because it’s a modern take on a classically tailored look and perfect for daytime or a night out with friends. All you need is a quick change of your accessories.”
“The Shay leather biker jacket in white is the perfect leather jacket to transition you from season to season. Pair it with your favorite floral printed mini, flat gladiator sandals, and dark sunnies for a chic flea-market ensemble.”
“Fringed tweed is definitely something I try and incorporate into every collection I design. Wear your Leya skirt out for a leisurely weekend brunch with pony-hair sneakers, a sleek pony, and barely there cat eyeliner.” Once fall comes around, add on a cable-knit pullover.
“Cotton knits are essential all year round and perfect for layering. Wear the Rocco to work with a cotton oxford underneath, a polished leather pencil skirt, and sexy pumps.”
“The Saffron jersey maxidress is flattering on every figure and exceptionally chic. Dress it up for any formal occasion with dramatic accessories, like a bejeweled clutch, crystal ear cuffs, and peep-toe pumps.”
