The Row’s pre-fall collection is perfect for January. Simple lines; über-neutral palette. (And I love how the low-slung skirt gives such a long, lean line.) Sign me up, and preview the full collection at Style.com.

Pre-fall 2015: Elizabeth and James

Elizabeth and James’ pre-fall collection was full of polished looks that had a touch of gamine. I’m particularly fond of the elongated lines from look 14’s high-waisted skirt and t-neck. (worn with Stan Smiths, no less). See the complete collection at Style.com.

Runway vs. Reality: The Row

runway vs. reality: the row's pink dress for resort 2015 | simple pretty

Earlier this year, I went crazy for The Row’s pink “Iya” wool sheath dress from the Resort 2015 collection. Completely besotted by the shape and the color, I needed it, and patiently waited for it to show up online. And then it did, complete with $4090 price tag. (eek!) While I still LOVE it, even if I were brave/crazy enough to buy it, I would still be too scared to ever wear it out of the house. (What if I spilled coffee on it? Could I enact an expensive-dress-stay-back policy on the tube? Doubtful.) So, I was happy to find a similar-styled dress, from Matches’ Freda line, for £395 (about $620). The pink is not quite as sublime, and I prefer The Row’s styling (lace ups beat heels), but I would also be able to wear it.
