Eva Mendes, Lady Gaga, and Blake Lively are just a few of the many A-list ladies who love Black Halo and its modern-day interpretations of Jackie O’s timeless style. Founding designer Laurel Berman creates meticulously tailored mini-dresses, pencil skirts, and other to-die-for creations whose unique silhouettes and expert draping make looking flawless seem simple. Cleverly placed zippers and cutouts add just the right amount of sex appeal — think provocative, not over-the-top. From the iconic Jackie O dress (a curve-hugging sheath in black or blue gabardine) to slinky slit-leg gowns and separates, Black Halo epitomizes classic glamour.
Ladies, you may have to wear a suit to work, but by no means does it have to be boring. Take a cue from the runway's fresh iterations (bold colors, leather details, striking digital prints) and stock your closet with bright silk button-downs, draped pencil skirts, tweed blazers, and more sharply tailored pieces, made to mix-and-match all season long.
