If you’re one of those unfailingly polished, uptown types who sported trench coats and smartly tailored separates in pre-school and turns to Hitchcock heroines for styling inspiration, fall 2010 fashion is a love letter to you. As for those of us who spent the last few seasons lazing around in black leggings and destroyed denim, figuring out how to integrate the newly hip fashion classics into our style repertoire may feel a bit daunting.
I suggest you start with an Equipment blouse. Re-launched in 2010, this iconic Parisian shirting line infuses classic menswear styling with the offhanded femininity the French have perfected. Pair their sheer leopard or herringbone print with flare jeans and stacked-heel sandals, or tuck their tux style into slouchy Vince pants for a look that’s classic but not the least bit corporate. (See eight more inspired ways to wear a blouse, courtesy of our ace styling team, in our latest lookbook.)
