Lauren Moffatt falls into that rare category of designer that hits the mark. Every. Single. Time. Her Fall 2013 collection is no exception—in fact, dare I say it's my favorite yet? The mix of patterns, colors, materials, and silhouettes seamlessly combines the blend of retro romance and casual quirk that I'm feeling for the coming season. I want every last piece!
You wouldn't expect a palette of navy, cobalt, and pink, or fatigue and marigold, to feel so darn wearable. Yet the way that Lauren combines prints and hues (a stripe here, a graphic abstract there) encourages mixing and matching with abandon. Unexpected pairings like quilted heraldry with a featherweight floral heighten the playful spirit even more.
The best part? This is 'buy now, wear forever' stuff. Statement dresses that require nothing more than your favorite heels for a showstopping outfit. Sweaters to team with everything from sequined skirts to weekend sweats. Coats your daughter will abscond with in twenty years. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Why talk forever when we could be snapping up this dress right now?
