The Jill Stuart Fall 2013 Collection continues the maturation we saw from the designer last season.
Yes, there is still a girlie feel to the collection. But this girl has a career, pays her bills & her dues and doesn’t need her friends to approve of her every decision.
In the evolution that is Jill Stuart, there is a definite shift to include more tailored pieces. I am by no means complaining- especially when it comes to either of the above jackets. As for the cropped military jacket and slim pants? Yes. This look exudes such strength. This is a woman to be reckoned with.
Of course it isn’t a Jill Stuart show without a party dress. Fun and flirty seemed the theme. My favorite from this category is the red number. I love the sheer detailing, which is balanced out by the otherwise demure silhouette.
Okay… I confess, I am not completely clear on how the effect was achieved in these pieces (ahhh—that’s what I get for not attending the shows this season!), but whatever it is I like it! Like the red dress above, the looks balance the sensual with the conservative. And like the first two looks, the lines create a real sense of strength.
So that was my take on the Jill Stuart Fall 2013 Collection! What are your thoughts?
