At DE SMET, we focus on designing clothes that work hard for our customers. This month’s Button Up Convertible Dress offers multiple styling options. Wear it as a swing dress with bell sleeves, or as a more streamlined silhouette with buttons fastened to the front or back. Shop this style and view more styling possibilities here.
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.
When investing in new pieces for your well-edited wardrobe, versatility is key. I always ask myself, can I wear this garment for more than one season, more than one occasion and will it withstand my bi-annual end-of-season purge? This is how I design pieces for DE SMET, including the Shirt Jacket that launched yesterday. Pictured here in white, this is how I like to wear the DE SMET Shirt Jacket for winter: Layered between a light-weight turtleneck and a kimono coat, tucked into high-waist jeans. It adds a fresh pop of white to an otherwise somber ensemble. Come springtime, I will wear this style as a jacket over my favorite t-shirt or on its own as a shirt.

The Fifth DE SMET garment is a long sleeve knit top with thoughtful details including curved seams, slits at sleeve hems and a strictly straight neckline. The fabrics and lines of this style were informed by organic elements and naturally occurring shapes. Shop the DE SMET long sleeve knit top here.
