LOFT Fall 2010

For Fall 2010, LOFT Style Studio was introduced – an exclusive collaboration with four leading stylists – Tina Chai, Kate Young, Joanne Blades and Alia Ahmed-Yahia. These for stylists worked with the LOFT fall collection to create versatile looks from 10 fashion-forward fall essentials.

I think the pieces from this collection can easily be incorporated into your own wardrobe. Here are some of my favorite looks.

Left: Looped Ruffle Front Camisole, $49.50, Diamond Trimmed Cardigan, $69.50, Tweed 3/4 Sleeve Jacket, $148 and Fitted Lean Trouser, $79.50. Camisoles, cardigans and black trousers are staple pieces that I always look to add to my wardrobe and can last for seasons, easy to mix with what I already own. I love tweed jackets! I especially love this one because it has 3/4 sleeves. Being petite, I always have to watch the sleeve length - why spend money on tailoring when you don't have to?

The Ruffle Neck Dress, $128 (left), would be too long for my frame (though I do love how it is belted), but I can definitely go for the Ruffle Collar Anorak, $148.

At the top of my accessories list is this Gem Flower Necklace, only $39.50. The Color Block Dress, $89.50 (right), would be a great dress to wear from day to night.

I am all about Denim Leggings, $69.50 and wearing them with over-the-knee boots! You can wear denim leggings with so many things - cardigans, tanks, long sweaters or blouses with loose-fitting silhouettes!

I'm really excited about this Faux Fur Vest, $98. It's one thing I need to add to my wardrobe! It looks great with a pair of Herringbone trousers, $79.50, but would also look great with a pair of jeans. A simple tee looks good with the vest, like the Knot Front Tee, $29.50, shown below.

LOFT has some great booties/boots for fall, including open toe, $118 and lace-up, $128 booties and over-the-knee heeled boots, $168 and over-the-knee riding boots, $198. I love these brown suede booties!

There are a few other pieces on my LOFT must-haves list that I will definitely have to check out in-store come fall. Many of my favorite picks are available in petites so I look forward to finding a few great-fitting pieces!

  • Fitted Seamed Legging, $79.50

  1. Cool! I went to the LOFT Fall press preview in Los Angeles and saw lots of the same styles. The LA preview had the clothes on real models, which I posted on my blog if you're interested in checking out. I'm majority looking forward to all the tweed!!! Fingers crossed everything I want will come in petite!

  2. Checked out your blog - very cool! Great to see things from an LA perspective! Always better to see the looks on real models. Just got the bracelet, no necklace - saw that it was also big on your wrist too. No one believes me when I tell them I rarely get my clothes altered - only pants/jeans and sometimes skirts. It's all about finding the designers/size that fits!

  3. Thank you for being a guiding light on my journey of self-discovery and personal growth – your wisdom is invaluable! Gear up for rooftop warfare in Rooftop Snipers – where every shot is a chance for glory!
