Lela Rose: In the Trenches
Lela Rose is one of my all-time favorite designers: her fabrics are painstakingly selected, and her clothes are meticulously crafted for the uber-feminine woman. While the belted trench coat is not new (Burberry Prorsum's resident genius Christopher Bailey nailed this look on the runway), Lela Rose recreates this look in a softer, less militant way by uniting hues in a similar pallette. The dainty scalloped edges on her ochre skirt add a uniqueness to a simple skirt, and the lacy white blouse complements the ladylike look. By switching the pumps to tall suede boots in a light tan shade, this ensemble could work for the cold winter months.
