Midi skirts and dresses that hit just below the knee are a perfect trend for the office this spring. Wear a fitted blouse/top with skirts and a belt with dresses to accentuate your waist.  Stay away from midis with too much fabric or flare as they are not as flattering. Pencil, pleated, or slight circle midis work best with their clean lines and polished look.

Here are a few of my favorites:

I love seeing my initials stitched into the lining of my jackets. It instantly makes whatever I’m wearing feel special and more personal. Picking out the font and the thread color is oddly a lot of fun for me. I’ve always been a fan of monograms, whether it be on my little girl’s dresses, my bed linens, or even my shoes. In this age of fast fashion, it’s refreshing to take the time to make something your own. It’s those little details that can make all the difference in how you look and feel. And isn’t that what fashion and style is all about?

Avedon: Women

Dovima in Christian Dior, Paris, 1955

No one could better capture the timeless elegance of a woman than Richard Avedon.  His minimalist style always placed the focus on his subjects. The Gagosian Gallery in LA is displaying his works in an exhibit entitled Avedon: Women starting today, Novemeber 1st.  Be sure to check it out if you’re on the West coast.  

Not Just for the Office!

HEM’s next jacket is not just for the office! Longer, slimmer cut looks incredible w jeans for a more casual look.

Charcoal gray Italian stretch wool. Burgundy melton collar and trim. Bemberg lining with hand sewn pick-stitching.

Leopard for Fall

Leopard printed on fabric, leather, and accessories is a top trend this fall. Leopard first came into style when Christian Dior included it in his collections in the 1940’s and has been reappearing on runways ever since.  It is flattering on nearly every complexion and is timeless yet daring.  For the office, I find accessories like shoes, bags, and belts to be the easiest way to incorporate leopard into your wardrobe.  I love the Loeffler Randall cheetah pumps you can find at Barney’s or Saks and the leopard calf skin belt at Banana Republic.  Wear with black and camel for a particularly gorgeous, classic look.
