Everywhere I look, everything is cropped. I have a little secret to cropping longer pieces I layer THE DRESS with: I knot both sides in the front to accentuate my waist rather than hovering across my hips. Get it?

Not into knots? I tried on the cropped Alaia Perfecto jacket last week at Nordstrom and really considered selling a son to snag. The color of the Viince leather is really perfecto. All of these taken THE DRESS into fall. More to come on that. Stay tuned.
