You must have a look at Jaeger’s Spring 2010 ready-to-wear line. From fabulous prints to subdued solid colors, roomy rompers to tiny sweater dresses–it is a breath of fresh air.
In the look I’ve chosen, Jaeger brilliantly pairs a long sleeved blouse with gray cocktail shorts. Let me begin by saying that a great blouse is an investment piece for this season. It can easily be part of your office wardrobe during the week and a layering piece under funky vests and jackets for more laid-back weekend looks.
You can tailor this look for fall by choosing tweed winter shorts as opposed to ones made of lighter fabrics like silk or satin. If you throw on a pair of tights under the shorts, this look can even carry you through winter (just be sure to get a good jacket!) A sturdy leather or suede belt can take a pair of shorts up a notch, giving them definition and a sharper look.
If you are not a fan of peep toe booties, you can easily pull off this look with tall boots. Over-the-knee boots are this season’s shoe obsession and they would also work really well with this look. If this is the direction in which you want to take your Jaeger-inspired outfit, choose either tighter-fitting shorts that end above the knee or looser, Harem-style shorts that reach the knee.
