Taking its name from a Sixties-era radical art movement — the name is Latin for "to flow" — the women’s clothing brand fLuXuS treats the act of getting dressed as a creative endeavor. Founded in 2007 by Los Angeles-based designer Martin Paquette, fLuXuS has won a celebrity following for its understated elegance and trademark burnout patterns, which hint at urban grunge. For fLuXuS, functionality is key: its striped tops, sleek dresses and other separates are easy to match or layer under your favorite V-necks and jackets. Plenty of Hollywood’s glamorous residents (Jessica Alba, for one) like to wrap up in fLuXuS's signature oversize cardigans, flattering cotton and polyester dresses, and loose-fitting printed T-shirts — all designed and produced in LA.
If you've been paying attention to the fall runways, you know that bold is big this fall. Daring stripes and bright florals play a big part in the trend. With that in mind, our stylists have put together some of their favorite iterations for the cooler months ahead: We've got flowers on everything from punchy tops to mini dresses, and stripes on rainbow-hued cardigans, printed denim dresses, and beyond.
Comfortable, effortless, and universally flattering, it's no wonder the jersey dress finds itself in the sartorial spotlight season after season. Gilt's buyers have rounded up a selection that showcases the very best, from curve-consious, draped styles to dramatic maxis, sexy minis, and everything in between. We're especially fond of the throw-on-and-go office-appropriate styles: think faux wraps and knee-length styles in versatile neutrals and interesting prints.
Stock up on every basic with this bounty of tees from over 10 designers. From linen-blend peasant tops to cut-out T-shirts and curve-hugging tanks, these separates live to be layered.
