For our third EDIT, we thought we’d take a little bit  of a different approach to fall and all of  the trends it has to offer. Garance and I talked about what we wanted to feature, and realized the best way to present these fashion stories was on some of our favorite girls seen on the blog over the years. Women we adore, and women you’ve come to know.

For Part 1, Bailey was the perfect girl to talk to you about easy dressing! Those casual, cool looks that create the ultimate, effortlessly chic attitude…  But are also completely uncomplicated. Mostly because the majority of pieces on Bailey are knits, jerseys, and more slouchy than tailored. I think there’s three real ideas here to consider:

A dress you can throw on without having to contort your body to zip it up.  Something long with a low neckline and flowing silhouette. Elegant without even trying, especially with a cardigan for cool evenings.

A knit skirt with a split! I’m the last person to think a knit skirt might work (ever!), but a style that hits at the knees and can allow for movement is really, surprisingly superb. Worn with heels (Garance’s touch of course :) ) it becomes sophisticated, even when worn with a cool army green – toned tee.

A loose wool slack worn low and at the hips. It’s sort of that moment when you want to show skin, feel comfortable and confident, but don’t feel inclined to wear a bandage dress. That to me is really what sensual, easy dressing is: a cashmere sweater and trousers and THOSE Gucci fur-lined loafers. (Hearts in eyes over here).

So there it is! The first part of the series we’ll be presenting over the next few weeks! Stay tuned and hope you like the stories and women that keep us inspired through the season!
