Summer might be in full force, but style slows for no Season.

The Fall/Winter 2014 Collections recently debuted, and fashionistas are already scrambling to integrate key details into their warm weather wardrobe. One particularly wearable textile making appearances on many a runway? Knits.

From the Row, where Olsen twins continued their brave pioneering of old lady chic with luxe (if highly over the top) knitwear, to Alexander Wang’s neon take on mod knit mini dresses to Stella McCartney’s sophisticated head to toe knit suit, knits have never held less kitsch or more chic.

Vogue reports:

The polar vortex may have subconsciously worked to make knits the story of New York Fashion Week, from ribbed leggings and sweater tanks at Marc Jacobs and Edun to all-in-ones at Michael Kors, and, at the Row, a bear suit of sorts: essentially, all the clothes you’ve always wished you could venture out of the house in, but never dared to try. There were dressed-up knits, too, like Calvin Klein Collections’s elegant mohair skirts and tops and the handspun details on Rodarte’s dresses. Layered looks went next-level with sweaters of multiple lengths and varied silhouettes piled on, topped with a very, very, very long scarf—all techniques that the lingering cold temperatures offer plenty of time to incorporate in wardrobes now.

The last result you might expect from layering knit upon knit might be a lithe, lean, and sleek silhouette, but the Fall 2014 shows blew our respective hive minds with piled on knits that accentuated, not disguised, our feminine curves.

Look for long & spacious knits in neutral shades, in particular Fall’s subtly sexy it-hue: soft grey. In order to attain that coveted look of long and lean, it’s imperative to select a form-fitting and light weight knit.

Repeat after me: bulk is bad, bulk is bad, bulk is bad.

Just last week, we discussed the 60’s mod trend taking high to low fashion by storm. But the mod mania isn’t limited to micro-minis and bold, eye-catching, retro inspired prints; shape and structure is also vital when incorporation mod into the modern wardrobe. Next Season’s silhouettes are saturated with irreverently geometric shapes from head to toe. One less discussed but ultra chic variation of 60’s structure is the humble yet universally flattering boxed top 3.1 Phillip Lim, Marc Jacobs, Peter Som, Tibi, and Calvin Klein sent models down the Spring/Summer 2014 Runways in square shaped tops. boxtop1 On the retail side, the affordable angels at Zara and Topshop are selling especially fantastic fast fashion renditions of the box top trend. Square, slouchy, and slightly off the shoulder tee shirts impeccably combine form with function. When searching for a box top of your own, veer towards a saturated solid or minimalist color blocking to compliment the unfussy square shape. The hem should be slightly cropped, not so much as to reveal belly button, but not so long that it reaches the top of your pants or skirt.

The best part of a square top is it allows you to play with proportions. Pair with polished trousers or a fully, swingy maxi skirt to elegantly contrast slouch with structure. Or, for a flirtier ensemble that shows off your waist, tuck the boxed top into a high waisted skirt or skinny jeans. Although a boxy top flourishes in the office because of it’s structured polish, it’s outrageous flexibility offers a myriad of casual options.

A perfect laid back weekend day to night ensemble might pair a pale, pastel cropped boxy top with those perfectly weathered boyfriend jeans in a light wash. Roll up the cuffs, add a low heeled leather bootie or printed flat, and throw on a panama hat and you’ve got your go to gear for Brunch, Farmer’s Markets, and sunny strolls down shop lined streets. 

Here are 3 commandments for rocking a box top

1. If you’re pairing a box top with slouchier, looser bottoms, make sure the top is cropped or at least on the shorter side.

A too long box top will drown your figure if paired with similarly wide garments!

2. When the temperature drops, try laying a crisp button up over your boxy top for that Serena Van Der Woodsen at Constance chic.

Pair with a mini skirt or shorts with tights to keep it sexy and contrasting. 

3. A perfectly polished work ensemble is a boxy top paired with a pencil skirt and delicate accessories.

It Factor Friday: Miley Cyrus and Marc Jacobs

The newest Marc Jacobs ad campaign featuring Miley

Whatever your thoughts are on Miley Cyrus, you’ve got to admit that the girl’s got “It.”  People who hate her talk about her just as much as her hardcore Smilers, and her outrageous fashion choices are up for debate on a daily basis.   After establishing herself as a huge personality and style star, Miley reminded us that she’s actually got pipes with awesome acoustic performances on late night stages and award shows.  Is there anything she does that doesn’t make headlines?  Nope.

More Marc for Miley

Miley’s designer of choice lately has been Marc Jacobs, who’s a bit of an “It” guy himself.  After leaving Louis Vuitton last year to focus on bringing his A-game to his eponymous line, Marc recognized that Miley could give Marc Jacobs the boost the collection needs.  Cue the collaborative ad campaign, featuring Miley Cyrus decked out in Jacobs’ post-apocalyptic-meets-1800s Spring 2014 clothing.  The result is nothing short of amazing.

We love that Marc is bringing a new muse into his rotation (his other muses include Sophia Coppola and Giselle Bundchen), and we think Miley’s young spirit is a perfect fit for the fashion house.  It’s clear that these two “It” industry insiders adore each other; we can’t wait to see what happens next!
