Real Style Network is delighted to have fashion designer Tory Burch interpret today’s top fashion trends for our readers in our exclusive Designer Picks series. Tory Burch is, of course, one of the most successful new American fashion designers. Her Tory Burch clothing, accessory and children’s wear lines are sold in over 450 stores worldwide and 22 free standing Tory Burch boutiques. In the Designer Picks series, Tory Burch speaks about the essential pieces of clothing and accessories that all women should have in their wardrobe. Take a look:
Real Style Network: In your opinion, what is the hottest fashion trend right now and going into the fall and why?
TORY BURCH: I think the mix of textures, print and color is so modern. Our fall collection is based around the idea of playing a utilitarian edge against sequins or something feminine.
Real Style Network: What are the essential pieces of clothing you would recommend for women to have in their wardrobe?
TORY BURCH: Women should always follow what looks good on them no matter what trends dictate. There are, however, a few universal looks that women can personalize.
1. A great dress that you can wear from season to season, day to evening.
2. A pair of jeans that fit you perfectly. We’re launching a full denim collection for fall 2010.
3. A jacket or blazer. It’s the ultimate layering piece and you can find on that fits your personality—loose, tailored, etc.
4. A trench–no matter what you’re wearing or what your style is, a classic trench always looks chic.
Real Style Network: What are your favorite accessories and why?
TORY BURCH: I love bold jewelry. A great cuff, necklace or ring can elevate and transform your entire look. It doesn’t have to be expensive either. It just needs to be something that you love.
You can purchase the Tory Burch fashions seen above on her website here, at any of her boutiques and at Sak’s Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdale’s.
