Hear the name Kelly Wearstler and just think interior design? (Her resume spans the Viceroy hotels to home collections for Bergdorf Goodman.) Well, not anymore. The lifestyle guru has transitioned seamlessly into fashion, reminding us that a good designer can create anything, be it a lamp or a jacket.
Case in point, the Parfait is perfection. With a slight sheen, covered buttons, and a flamboyant pleated capelet over the shoulders, it can transition from dressy daywear to formal cocktails with the switch of an accessory or two. Tailored pencil skirts and leopard-print jeans look equally good, thanks to the soft, rounded angles and relaxed-feminine cut. It’s girly yet nonchalant, it’s got a retro vibe yet the result is thoroughly modern. Kelly just gets it – the Parfait has layers of style.
Pair with: Wear it the way I do: with Wearstler’s decadently-Deco Scales clutch ($995). Sometimes just a panel of watersnake makes more of a statement than a whole piece, and the pyrite-stone clasp brings a modern-art quality.
