Speaking Trench

Do you speak trench? When the weather is in flux, your overcoat options are endless. The most classic choice for navigating the seasonal transition is the trench coat. This month, as I scroll through my instagram feed, I can’t get away from the trench coat. From Low Classic and Agger Flachs to Burberry, everyone can find one that works into their style. Classic, quirky, asymmetric, what’s your trench style?

Must Have | White Mules

White is right this season for shoes and I don’t mean sneakers and sandals. White mules are the perfect transitional shoe to pair with long dresses, denim and wide leg trousers as we ease into autumn. Whether you opt for architectural elements, or simple slides, this is the go-to-shoe of the season.

As we transition into Autumn, layering pieces become the focus of the wardrobe. For September, DE SMET launched the Asymmetric Overcoat. A reinterpretation of the classic longline trench with asymmetric collar and sculpted sleeve. Available in smooth tencel twill and crinkle cotton poplin, this light weight layering piece is essential to trans-seasonal dressing.

Introducing the DE SMET Transformative Tie Dress

This month’s design was inspired by simple geometric shapes to create a versatile silhouette. Seamlessly uniting form with function, the DE SMET Transformative Tie Dress is a new take on the wrap dress. Made in soft tencel twill, detailed with overlapped side panels for easy wrapping at front or back. Reversible front to back styling for a high or low neckline. Available in both Poppyseed (pictured above) and Bosc (pictured below). Layer over jeans and a tee, or wear on its own as a dress, this is the ultimate layering piece to take you through the seasons.

Camel Suede Shoes for Summer

When your wardrobe consists of primarily black and white, introducing a rich neutral like camel is an easy way to mix things up a bit. This summer, camel suede shoes are the go-to hue. The richness of the camel color effortlessly punctuates any monochromatic look. Whether you go for a more seasonless style like the mule, or a summer sandal, camel suede is the perfect update to the nude shoe. Here are my top contenders (some of which are deeply discounted for the end of the season sales).
