Is it just us or are the high-low fashion collaborations out there just getting better and better?! On April 10th the newest partnership between Kohl’s and designer Peter Som hits stores near you. Som is known for his clean lines, flattering cuts, and romantic fabrics and he delivers all that and more with his new collection for Kohl’s. He sought to bring the feeling of a vacation in St. Barths to life with each of these under $100 piecs. We’re especially smitten with the chic jumpsuit, flirty “mermaid” dress, and spring-perfect floral bomber. Here’s a sneak peek at the collection:

Summer to Fall: Wardrobe Must-Haves To Buy Now

July 11, 2013 at 11:55 am , by

Enjoy the beach while you can! Soon enough we’ll be heading back to school and the office. If you’re a busy woman who wears many hats (of course you are), you likely need a wardrobe that can effortlessly go from work to play and season to season. Who has time to change out a closet four times a year?! I’ve gathered some grown-up pieces that can also work at a soccer game, pot-luck dinner, or conference.

Here are the five wardrobe essentials every woman needs going into fall.

Peplum Top: This trend isn’t going anywhere, and the feminine silhouette is a great addition to your closet. Your basic black pant or pencil skirt will seem fresh again with this fresh top. I like this one from J.Crew.
Cardigan:  We can thank Michelle Obama for this trend. The cardi is a terrific alternative to a blazer. Pair it with summery dresses and you’ll get a few more weeks out of your lightweight dresses as the weather gets cooler. Worn with jeans and a great necklace your cardi is also ready for a night out. A good bet is this Chevron Stripe from LOFT.
Fit and Flare Dress:  You can’t get much easier than a well-cut dress. This figure-flattering style works on every shape, and it’s an effortless way to look polished. Try this one from Land’s End (up to size 16).
Pencil Skirt: This shapely design has been a hit (again) since Mad Men came on the scene—and you don’t have to be a skinny minny to wear it! Pencil skirts look especially great on curvy girls. When you’re shopping for a skirt that will work in all four seasons, opt for a bold floral print like this one from Vince Camuto.
Oxford shoes: Slip them on with a slim pantsuit and you’re office-ready. Or pair them with a swingy skirt for brunch to look casual chic. Try this pair from HushPuppies.
Building a wardrobe is all about adding pieces that can multi-task and can have life in multiple seasons. These five additions will serve you well through the end of summer and beyond.
