The designer Rachel Comey and her boyfriend, Sean Carmody, are two months away from having their first child, and the mom-to-be is bumping up her wardrobe accordingly. “The maternity trend seems to be not buying any clothes,” Comey says with a laugh. “That excludes the flea market, because it’s been fun to shop and try on shapes that I wouldn’t normally try on now that my body is so different.” Comey, who is known for her flirty prints and cool shoe designs, transformed a thrift shop cat suit into a pair of cool trousers. Day wear has become jumpsuits, overalls and stretchy knits, especially knit dresses paired with a sharp tailored blazer from Ellsworth for a more defined shape. “With my changing body and changing lifestyle, I am also changing my need for clothing to be practical for a woman’s body at any stage,” she says. We are looking forward to see how this new sensibility plays out in Comey’s next collection. Great expectations indeed.

I realize that this is a ton off stuff, but I felt that it worked best as a collection – indulge me. Amongst the must-have items this season are tuxedos and tailcoats for women (love). “Tailcoats can be worn with a long skirt and a lingerie-inspired top,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M’s Head of Design. “Or over a feminine dress, or even with jeans and a T-shirt, glammed up with bright red high heels.” Ann-Sofie says that details are key; “Hair accessories add a special twist this winter. I love the sequin and feather accessories, and there’s also a lot of beautiful jewelry.” I would have to say that I wholeheartedly concur.
A chain necklace has never looked so luxe before! We’re absolutely loving the DANNIJO Audrey Necklace in either mixed oxidized silver, silver or 14K gold. The layering of the chains and organization of their assorted thicknesses are expertly arranged, and would look great with both a casual white t-shirt or a black cashmere dress. Sisters Danielle and Jodie Snyder of DANNIJO incorporate a statement making sense into this piece, which also walks the line of style endurance — it will be your favorite for much longer than just a season or two! Equipped with a sturdy clasp, this shiny plated metal concoction is made in New York, and was originally designed for BENSONI’s Spring 2010 runway collection.
