If you're asking us, we'd rather have one of the collection's clean-cut coats or crisp white tunics — and we're guessing we're not the only ones. After a glimpse of the Elizabeth and James Fall 2014 collection, you might just be convinced to pare it down. Way down.
Instead of bold pops of color, frills, or prints, the lineup draws us in with clean lines, smart tailoring, and menswear-inspired essentials. It's not basic but understated and easy with touches like "schoolboy" stripes and fuzzy details on a boyfriend-style coat and clutch that make a statement, all without being outright attention-seeking — a little like the designers themselves.
