There is something about Rachel Zoe’s designs that really speak to the way I want to dress. Maybe it is the laid back California feel or how lifestyle ready her runway shows are styled. Either way I am once again finding myself enamored with the stylist-turned-designer and several pieces from the Rachel Zoe S/S 2013 Collection.
As I already alluded to, there is an ease about Rachel Zoe’s collection that no matter how dramatic the pieces (and let’s be honest, orange leather pants and shimmery column skirts are inherently dramatic), comes through on the runway. I can imagine wearing these pieces in my day-to-day life (okay, so orange isn’t the most flattering on me) without feeling like I am trying too hard. It is this effortless feeling that helped catapult Zoe into the role of premier stylist and now garners her continued respect as a designer.
Whether purchasing Rachel Zoe or not, there are always styling lessons to be learned in her shows. In this case, I am fond of the long lines shown in this collection. This is an effect I look forward to recreating (postpartum) in the spring. And knowing there will be a baby on my hip I am thankful for the idea that a little slouchy can be sophisticated as well.
Now its your turn: what are you favorite elements in the Rachel Zoe S/S 2013 Collection?
