Even though it’s not even (officially) Summer yet here in the Northern Hemisphere, Talbot’s already has their Look Book for fall online, and it has me drooling. These are MY kinds of ensembles: sophisticated but not stuffy. The designs, which evoke a bit of the late, lamented Forth & Towne, really hit me where I live and if Talbot’s can deliver on the quality and fit, I might be dropping more than a few clams there come September. Here are some of my favorites from the Look Book.
While the gloves won’t exactly work in LA, I can so see myself in the rest of this outfit. The yellow jacket with the red shoes…ahhhhhhh.
This sweater is just the right kind of leopard print. Would I pair it with a lace skirt?? Not for work but maybe for a night out with le monsieur.
This leather bomber jacket has a lot of potential. Talbot’s does some really decent leather jackets at a good price point.
I’ve finally decoded what it is in about styles like this that get to me on such a visceral level. These are updated versions of Grown Up Lady Clothes™ from my childhood. They appeal to the little girl part of me that imagines someday being able to dress up and be elegant and glamorous. “Elegant and glamorous” sometimes feels like a stretch for me these days, but these pieces styled as they’ve done here would (mostly) work in my grown up life.
