I love Kate Spade ... like love-love (who doesn't?). From the bows to the glitter to the cheery colors, it's all so cute, but in a good way! Although I can't afford to fill my wardrobe with the brand, I definitely try to replicate the look when I can. Which is exactly why I was excited to the see the fall 2014 collection.
The collection is full of the usual classic shapes and bright, fun colors. I especially liked the following look. It's a little more subdued, but can be worn now and into spring.
- Start with a classic black turtleneck. This Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater from Pure Amici is super cozy and a great buy, too.
- Choose a swingy a-line skirt. The skirt was the hardest piece to find, however I like Mossimo's Ponte Fit & Flare Skirt, which has the bonus of being a bargain. Do you sew? The Miette Skirt from Tilly and the Buttons is almost a dead-ringer for the Kate Spade version, and it even has a built-in bow. There are lots of vintage/handmade options on Etsy, too.
- Add a bow at your waist. This metallic Faux Leather Bow Belt from Tarnish works perfectly.
- Carry a structured handbag. Splurge on The Cambridge Satchel Company's The Shoulder Bag or save on a Merona Crossbody Handbag.
- Wear a leopard flat. Splurge on Donald J Pliner's Viky Loafer or save on Mossimo Supply Company's Odell Ballet Flat (a steal: I'm on my second pair).
- Have fun with your sunglasses. The slight cat eye shape of Kate Spade's Retro Sunglasses is cheeky and bold.
- Keep your jewelry simple. Bauble Bar's Mini Onyx Decor Studs add just enough sparkle.
One of the things I love about this outfit is the versatility. Vary the look by swapping the skirt for a pair of cropped, camel-colored pants or add tights and boots on a cold, snowy day. Once the weather warms up, swap the sweater for a black t-shirt.
