Thanks to the innately stylish eye of a recent client, I was introduced to the above pic of Tory Burch from InStyle Australia. I just love how adorable Tory looks (in a grown-up way, of course) in this bold striped suit of her own design. I was inspired to do a little digging, and uncovered other looks that put Tory in the category of Style Ace. The designer has a knack for making both her own clothes and other labels (Narciso Rodriguez and Lanvin to name a few) appear fun yet sophisticated.
While this suit is definitely not for the faint of heart, Tory makes it work for two reasons: the right fit and the right accessories. The slim, tailored cuts of the blazer and pants flatter the body. And the accessories in both pics complement the colors of the suit without competing for attention.
Here’s another snapshot that shows off her smart eye for cuts. The ankle-length silhouette of the pants is modern and flattering.
Tory always gets the fit right with skirt choices, too. At the knee and fitted (but not tight). Plus, she has fun with prints and bold accessories, but always keeps a solid foundation to keep the look from going into crazytown territory.
