3.1 Phillip Lim Resort 2011
There's something about 3.1 Phillip Lim that really makes the ladies swoon, so bearing that in mind, we are pretty certain that the current Resort 11 collection will trigger fainting fits galore. What's the cause for all the hysteria, you ask? Well, Lim's incredibly flattering, perfectly executed wardrobe essentials always make the fashion devotees' hearts race, but the designer's really outdone himself with his current assortment of Bianca Jagger-inspired looks. There are so many standout pieces right now, like draped skirts and shirts in stunning cowhide-print silk, softly tailored suits, and a few dramatic must-haves, like a breathtaking sequined jumpsuit. The combination of refined '70s references and relaxed minimalism is majorly chic and so completely in keeping with spring's most important trends.
As if this wasn't enough good news, we're also delighted to inform you that Shopbop now carries this essential line! Plus, in addition to stocking a huge selection of 3.1 Phillip Lim, the Shopbop team is debuting a new type of lookbook on their site that you're sure to enjoy. Whenever you move your mouse over one of the lookbook's editorial images, the photos come to life; it's really quite cool. The resulting experience is interesting and beautiful to look at, plus it also gives you another perspective on the clothes-always a good thing in our books! But don't simply take our word for it: be sure to check out the lookbook and collection today!
Double Breasted Blazer ($650, coming soon)
If you don't have an elegant blazer in a light neutral color, you simply must invest in this one now. There are numerous reasons to adore this simple, cropped silk jacket-like the fact that it has a boxy-but-flattering cut-but just know it's a modern classic!
Sleeveless Belted Dress ($525, coming soon)
We fell in love with this impeccably cut dress the second we first laid eyes on it. The simple sheath has a few light military references (like epaulettes at the shoulder and flap pockets at the hip) and is definitely the perfect piece for spring and summer. It's already on Hillary's wish list; perhaps you should put it on yours too!
Wide Leg Jumpsuit with Open Tie Back ($625)
Once utilitarian in nature, the jumpsuit is now super sophisticated thanks to Lim's lovely take on this all-in-one piece. Made from tan silk jacquard, this three-quarter sleeve, wide-leg jumpsuit is a perfect pick for a cocktail party or a dinner party at home.
Drape Back Pullover ($350)
If you've been looking for an interesting sweater style that is a step up from your favorite cardis and v-necks, we're happy to tell you that the search is officially over. Thanks to its asymmetrical hemline and flounced back, this gray crewneck is anything but basic, making it a must-buy for everyone's wardrobe.
Wrap-Draped Skirt ($425, coming soon)
Of all the many pieces in this incredible collection, the cow-print skirt is definitely Katherine's favorite. Who could blame her? The heavy silk feels heavenly to the touch, plus the subtle animal print is such a cool and unexpected choice!
Cropped Wide Leg Fringe Trousers ($375)
If you love the neutral silk jacquard of the aforementioned jumpsuit, but aren't sure if that exact item is for you, you might prefer these pants instead. Featuring the same wide-leg silhouette, these ankle-grazing trousers have a frayed hemline and an easy waistband, making them an attractive and comfortable choice!
Long Sleeve Sequin Jumpsuit ($1100)
Daring dressers alert! This sequined jumpsuit is truly a standout piece that's worth the investment. We love its contrasts: though it boasts a modest boatneck in front, the back of the jumpsuit dips to a low v. Somehow, we think Ms. Jagger would approve!
