SheFinds September Issue Spotlight: NY Magazine's Grown-Up Sophistication

RL Blake Pants

The Trend: Showcasing the female figure once again through powerful, womanly clothes that veer far from summer's infantile babydolls, blobby tunics and shapeless trapeze dresses.

They Say: "…something happened at the fall runway shows. There was no "evolution." There was an abrupt, collective hairpin turn, so unanimous it seemed choreographed, away from pouf and toward a distinctly sharper, longer line that suddenly looked adult, sophisticated, purposeful."

How to Wear It: Accentuate the waist with cinching corset belts, lean pencil skirts and high-waisted, wide leg slacks. Another must-have? A fitted turtleneck or two. They'll make layering under cropped jacket a breeze. Choose streamlined silhouettes, simpe designs in luxurious fabrics, monochromatic pieces and minimalist accents.

Our Picks: A classic sheath dress easily falls into the "shapely, yet subtly sexy" category. Try this Premise Lurelie Sheath Dress ($355 @ Bloomingdales); it's streamlined, but forgiving. For similar styling on the cheap, go for this Suzi Chin Maggy Boutique Drape Back Crepe Sheath ($128 @ Nordstrom). As for tops and bottoms, these stunning 7 for all Mankind High-Waisted Trousers ($209 @ eLUXURY.com) would go swimmingly with this cheap 'n chic V-Neck Silk Blouse in bold teal ($59 @ Spiegel.com).
