Fall’s easy chic

Forget the fun and games.

This fall, fashion tones down for high impact.Call it late Eighties ease: it’s a season marked by collections of understated elegant clothes that are anything hut boring. Quality and substance, shape and scale, color and texture each play a starring role. Hut after several seasons of must have, must-do, this fall is about making self-aware selections from among the classics: a simple, shapely dress, a timeless cashmere vest, a great pair of trousers, an intelligently sculpted jacket And it’s about finding great reinterpretations of the classics, which have been struck by brilliant color. sewn in luxe, investment-level fabric, leather, and fur, and making them work for you It’s about putting together a stellar individual style from among the seasons special pieces and feeling confident about the curtain calls. It’s as easy as following the leaders, as designers-especially the American ones-fall into a mood of quiet, elegant chic.

The chemise is the dress to ease into this season. Two of the best are from Calvin Klein’s exemplary fall collection, both back buttoned and crew neck: the houndstooth check in graphic black and white textural wool. and the solid double-faced wool offered in high-octane primaries and pastels, here in brave new pink. Both at the in boutique and The Gazetb; pink chermise also available at Macy’s. Clni Boeri-Tomu katayanagi’s sculpted glass Ghost Chair to the The Pace Collection. Hair & makeup by Cindy Gregg.
