I love Rag & Bone. Some of you may still remember many pieces from the brand that have been featured in my previous posts and I personally like to pre-order them via Moda Operandi when I spot things I love on the runway thanks to the reasonable price tags!
David Neville and Marcus Wainwright perfectly captured the spirit of American style: casual chic and utilitarian. But they always add something new and edgy to keep the innovation while still being good at what the brand was well-known for from the very beginning. This year they definitely have a cool girl in mind. We can see lots of motocross related elements on their new RTW collection.
My favorite looks are the three above. I’m deeply impressed with how they made a simple, see-it-everywhere stripe shirt so sexy and cool. The models were wearing stripe button-ups that we all have in our closet and we all wear during workdays. But by unbuttoning the top 4-5 buttons to shape a sexy, deep V neckline, and pairing it with satin skirt that has glamorous details, leather pants that have unexpected side stripes and denim shorts that have contrast lace trims, we can take this simple shirt into a whole new level and wear it Monday through Sunday.
Skirts, pants and shorts are basically what we can play on our bottom half. Below I broke down each category and hand-picked my favorite pieces that are inspired by the hot runway looks and are also hot trends in the coming seasons. Hope you enjoy them and share with me your thoughts!
