One of the must visit online shopping destinations, The Outnet has their own exclusive fashion label, Iris & Ink to complete your wardrobe with style staples. From leather leggings to cashmere sweaters, Iris & Ink fulfills the fall fashion wish list of any fashionista. Real Style wanted to know what Shira Suveyke, Vice President of Global Buying for The Outnet, was in love with from the Iris & Ink collection this fall.
Real Style: What are your three fall must-haves for women this season and why?
Shira Suveyke: I love the start of fall! It’s the time to dig out your super-soft cashmere and get ready for the change in temperature. My essentials this season include the new Iris & Ink slouchy cashmere V-neck and some of our new color blocked and striped sweaters. Leather is also a fall must-have! I am obsessed with our stretch leather legging – they’re the new skinny jean and give every outfit an instant dose of cool.
RS: What are your favorite trends this season?
SS: I’m still loving the ‘matching’ top-and-skirt/pant trend. Our pairing of the Iris & Ink calf hair tee and leather skirt is modern yet classic. I also love the emphasis on texture and the sports luxe influence that are still popular. The Iris & Ink bomber jacket with cracked vinyl sleeves highlights these two trends perfectly.
RS: What are your favorite fall accessories?
SS: My must-have bag shape this season is the envelope clutch. I have accumulated many variations in an array of colors and fabrics! For shoes, the motorcycle boot is still a strong trend, but my new favorite is the single-sole pump as well as slippers for off-duty days.
RS: What is your top trick for making a woman look slimmer?
SS: Look for strategic color blocking to trick the eye! Stella McCartney and Jason Wu have created amazing pieces using this technique – Kate Winslet loves the slimming effect so much she even bought the same Stella McCartney dress in multiple colors! The Iris & Ink color-block cashmere sweater does the same job. Another great way to look slimmer is to wear the one color from head to toe. Going tonal streamlines your silhouette and draws the eye up and down rather than from side to side.
RS: If women could only buy one piece from your collection this fall, what would it be and why?
SS: Make a statement with outerwear! Iris &Ink has the most luxe shearling coat this fall – it is absolutely at the top of my Wish List.
