Jill Stuart Fall 2013 Collection

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?

  1. That first look is so playful and chic!

  2. I think you would look great in her stuff Alexis. I always love her sensibility, it’s so defined and I definitely think she’s the best designer for petites out there.
