Danielle: The Grapevine Print Jumpsuit

I’m loving the idea of effortless vibe and this jumpsuit is the perfect example. Versatile and easy, it’s definitely my go-to piece of the season.

Must have’s for Fall: A oversized cozy knit, pleated midi leather skirt, paired back to over the knee boots and my Mansur Gavriel bucket bag.

Colleen: The Lace Dress

I am ready for Fall! My style advice is to keep it simple and chic. There are some excellent options for non-boring basics that become even more special with details. I love the luxurious feel of this dress, it’s feminine and sexy in an understated chic way, and the leather trim adds edge, and it can be worn year-round. My lip color of choice is blood orange by Bite which gives the look the right amount of pop, my sunglasses are Sunpocket.

Page: The Melton Coat

Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. I love outerwear and sweaters, so I’m always really excited when I get to start wearing them. This fall I’m very into menswear. I’ll wear oversized sweaters (I buys mens’ so they’re extra-long) and plaid. The Southern ex-prep school girl in me gets them monogrammed on the cuff-I’ve always liked it when I see this detail on mens’ shirting. The Short Melton Coat is a great “third piece” to throw on top—the roundness of it will ease up on the masculine vibe.

TEXTURE. I just bought a great leopard brocade mini skirt that I can’t wait to wear with a super long nubby cardigan. I like the idea of playing with proportions. A buttoned up shirt underneath and a giant scarf will make it feel not sloppy.
I’m going to invest in a really chic and timeless flat boot; it will be great (and comfy) to toughen up dresses and skirts, and always looks classic and polished with jeans. And of course it will be warm and functional, especially for those days when the temperatures begin to dip. I have a penchant for high heels but practicality has begun to prevail, especially since our last NYC winter was so brutal.

I tend to err on the side of classic with a twist when I dress for fall and winter. Even the most neutral of color palettes (grey and navy are my faves) can be dressed up with the right amount of jewelry and the perfect bag. My social calendar for the chilly months definitely involves red wine and comfort food, so even if I’m wearing something like black jeans and a sweater, I’ll wear about 7 rings to make myself feel a bit more “dressed”. I will obviously and probably exclusively be wearing red lipstick (Mac’s Ruby Woo).

Sara: The Dotty Dress

For fall, I’m looking forward to pairing feminine prints and shapes, like the Dotty dress, with more utilitarian pieces; I plan on wearing my favorite army green anorak every day until it gets too cold, and I love a great menswear-inspired oxford shoe, but in an unexpected color or metallic. There’s a running joke at the office that no one has ever seen me in a pair of pants, but I love to balance my girly skirts and dresses with my trusty Vans or a lived-in work boot in the fall.

#rtwhitenoise

white noise: 1. noise containing many frequencies of equal intensities. 2. our new Fall print, inspired by the contrast between the energy of our daily lives and the need for calm within the chaos.

Join the visual conversation on Instagram and here on Tumblr by tagging your photos with the hashtag #rtwhitenoise : places where you find harmony as in Rebecca’s personal example; or share your styling of the print, as in Fashionguitar and Jalinedesign's examples.

Summer Classic: LWD’s

When women wear white dresses, they always look so beautiful; and every summer day becomes more special with the perfect LWD on. LWD’s are so versatile, pure, feminine and I love how they allow the personality and style of the woman to shine through, as seen in the photos above: the effortlessly chic Jane Birkin, the glamorous icon Marilyn Monroe, the pretty and punk Debbie Harry. (I also have a feeling that in most people’s favorite classic photo of their mom, in a good many of them she may be wearing a white dress?)  I simply love them, and I always will.  For this summer, I have created a capsule collection of LWDS. I hope you are able to find the perfect style for you!

Enter to win THREE LWD’s from the Rebecca Taylor Capsule Collection! Details here.

Beautiful Decay

My favorite print of the new collection is the Grey Gardens print, named after the 70’s documentary of eccentric, reclusive socialites living in a house of squalor. I love the idea of controlled chaos— a wild and beautiful floral garden growing as if by magic, with the force of nature. The print was inspired by the techniques of Oriental painting but digital printing allows the print to be transferred to fabrics as varied as organza and leather. It’s a print of contrast: fragility and strength, ancient and modern, beauty and decay.
