Talbots nabbed supermodel Linda Evangelista–practically fashion royalty–as the new face of their evolving brand. This hire is Talbots’ latest attempt to become cooler (they debuted a more modern and slimmer fitting collection for fall 2010), and if you don’t get the significance, it’s like Kate Moss modeling for L.L. Bean in 20 years. We took a look at what Talbots has to offer, and we were pleasantly surprised. Check out four items from Talbots that look way more luxe than we expected:
Carrying a big black bag during the summer doesn’t look great. Instead, go for something lighter like this Talbots’ dome handbag ($99.99) that will fit all of your everyday essentials.
This Silk doupioni dress ($124.99, down from $179) will be your go-to for any semi-formal event. The obi-inspired belt flatters your waist, and the chocolate brown color will go great with a pair of nude shoes.
Who knew Talbots sold such cute swimwear? This Starfish ruffled V-neck one-piece ($79) is adorable, and the coral color will look great on any skin tone.
We never would guess that this Talbots’ Textured gold bracelet ($18.99) bracelet is less than $20. You should buy this if you want one piece that will instantly make your outfit look more sophisticated.
