FASHIONWEEK Fall 2007: Cool Country Club Slackers at Alice Roi. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION BLOG
Summary: Bold plaids, peacoats, schoolgirl-proper buttonfront dresses, and cuffed charcoal wool pants may be staples right out of the Preppy Handbook, but after the Alice Ritter treatment, they acquire some downtown cred. A Prince of Wales plaid skirt with asymmetrical draping to one side was a standout, as was a winter white turtleneck sweater with ivory full-length skirt & white belt.
Pairing a classic black peacoat with cream mohair leggings is one way to rock the skinny-on-the-bottom with volume-on-top trend, and metallic cinnamon trim on black ruffles added a touch of eyecandy to an otherwise black-on-black dress. Cowgirl-worthy black fringe adorned the back yokes of many black tops and skirt hems, as well as the center front of an otherwise simple-chic sheath. Her striking plaid car coat felt like a great vintage find, while same plaid showed up as a two-tiered bias cut full skirt with sleevless black bodice - a fun way to rock plaid. The pants were comfy slouch chic, especially the full trousers pegged with a wide cuff that gave them a vaguely harem pant feel (but in a good way).
