DALLAS, Aug 6, 2014/ — As the weather starts to change, trade in summer’s sundresses for something a little more considered, substantial, and warm.
Trending for Fall 2014 is the Left-Bank Luxe, the fanciest of fall’s trends combines the menswear styles you love with the feminine jewel-tones and silhouettes you’ve come to live by for artful combinations reminiscent of Paris in the 1970s.
The key to mastering the Left-Bank Look, is sticking to three pieces: one menswear-inspired, one feminine to the core, and one super-luxe.
Combine a masculine trench coat in a deep plum hue with a satin-embellished sleeveless sheath and an oversized lambskin belt for an easy intro to a look you’ll see all season long.
