The Sweater Song – Rebecca Taylor’s

The Sweater Song

Kari Barrett


Pull on a flannel and dig out your old Doc’s. The 90’s is the way for fall. Sulking down the runway at Mercedes-Benz fashion week, a bit of grunge and a touch of feminine sophistication ran frequent through many collections.

Rebecca Taylor’s collection screamed grunge, although it was not without a few sweeter elements.  Movement was everywhere. Flowy fabrics were matched fitted pieces that somehow floated down the runway, accentuated by simple pumps or tough utility booties. Chunky knits and copious layers added to the 90’s style of the collection, but the careless hair and simple make-up really topped it off. Lined-eyes, pale skin and barely pinked lips brought about the waiflike air common of the era.

To reference the era, think mismatched, chaotic and understated. Copious layers make this look appropriate for any season. Think combat boots with a floral dress, layered blacks and greys and over sized sweaters. For something easy, try a floor skimming dress topped with a jean jacket. Stylish, yet slightly dishelved, it looks effortless. Accentuate with rips and tears to rough up your style. Add dark-lined eyes, a cozy, plaid flannel and a could-care-less attitude to finish the look.


Or whatever
