Emerging designer Kimberly Ovitz is no fashion fledgling. A former intern for legendary fashion photographer Herb Ritts and the Chanel design atelier in Paris, Ovitz is a virtuoso when it comes to choosing flattering cuts that accentuate women’s sensuality. Launched in 2009, her eponymous ready-to-wear collection includes ethereal mesh tops and body-hugging dresses in basic black or white, as well as gauzy maxi-dresses and monochromatic sweaters in neutral hues. The Hisu Warrior, a long-sleeved dress marked by textured geometric shapes, is a stand-out, as is the perfectly pintucked Glavis mini dress. In 2012 Ovitz debuted O by Kimberly Ovitz, an elegant, eco-friendly collection of minimalist separates. In addition to appearing in the pages of <i>W</i>, <i>Elle</i>, and other major fashion publications, Ovitz’s designs have graced the likes of Cameron Diaz and Anne Hathaway.
Remix your look this season with urban-infused pieces from standout labels like Kimberly Ovitz, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Parisian import Faith Connexion. You’ll fit right in with the enviably cool downtown crowd when outfitted in bodycon mini dresses, studded button-downs, cropped jackets, and jet-black skinny jeans.
Aside from its ultra-feminine appeal, the beauty of the everyday dress lies in its throw-on-and-go ease. From pretty, printed frocks to neutral dresses perfect for the office — by Tart, Tocca, and others — these stunners require little more than tights, a chic pair of heels, and a cool fall jacket to make you look perfectly put together.
From party-ready frocks to winter-ready jackets, these must-have picks are sure to go fast.
When we think downtown chic, we immediately think of Doo.Ri, Tart, and Leroy & Perry. So it’s no coincidence that all of those designers (and more!) are featured in today’s roundup of trendy separates. Think studded mini-dresses, leather panel dresses, fitted jackets, and borrowed-from-the-boys tuxedo pants.
