Wearing isabel

Isabel Marant 'Daria' dress

After heavily pining for select collections from New York Fashion Week, there were only a few others I was looking forward to seeing in the forthcoming Fashion Weeks. Of course one of them being Isabel Marant S/S'13, set to premiere this week at Paris Fashion Week. Cannot, wait, obviously... Isabel is a cult favorite and I mean, how could the label not be? She treads ever so perfectly between a hip and a boho vibe, and her collection boasts the most special pieces in the best casual-cool kind of way. Unique prints and embroidery, the coolest knits, and signature outerwear. Pining all over again.

What I love most about Isabel is the versatility of each of her designs. (Side note: I've worn her black Betty sneakers with just about everything.) Here I sort of imagined how I'd wear her 'Daria' smock dress and the ways to wear it in transition from the ends of summer to the cusp of winter, with my favorite look probably being the middle outfit. I always seem to do this--layer skirts over dresses--just because I love the fact that short dresses can multifunction as itself or as a top. Paired with low-heeled boots, a wardrobe-essential pleated skirt, a beanie (my favorite accessory!), and complete with a backpack and ear cuffs, the Daria dress can be worn as part of a street-chic look.

The first outfit looks to a more relaxed-boho, spring/summery vibe when worn over a pair of skinny boot jeans and brown boots. And the last outfit--finished with an oversized coat, metallic pumps and a timeless black clutch--a classic combo for a crisp winter's day. Isabel throughout the seasons... I probably wouldn't have it any other way.

Find Isabel Marant at FarFetch.com. Can't wait for the Fall pieces (Étoile and all, too) to start trickling in.
