Channel Off-Duty-Model Style with Cara for DKNY

Off-duty style is a genre usually best interpreted by those pretty faces walking the runway – but this fall, DKNY is taking a stab at it. With the help of fashion’s favorite It girl Cara Delevingne, the label has created a 15-piece capsule collection full of varsity and leather jackets, sporty separates, and loud tees. It’s set to launch this October.

Spawned from an exchange of jumpsuit-related ideas, the line also (not-so-surprisingly) includes both hooded and mesh-detailed jumpsuit styles. According to the brand, the laid-back collaboration is “equal parts Cara’s individual quirk and DKNY’s urban edge.”

Part of that quirk is Cara’s humorous touch on the tees, with statements like “If you can read this, you’re too close” paired with a cross-eyed peek at her forehead. That said, I think it’s worth getting up close and personal with this collection (especially its outerwear).

ELLE: 34 Perfect Tops

SYDNEY WASSERMAN, ELLE.COM EDITOR, GIVES HER TAKES ON TOP-NOTCH STYLE

ELLE: Perfect Tops

We put a lot of emphasis on the perfect pair of jeans, but it’s what goes on top that makes them an expression of personal style. The range of fashion-forward top options seems to be limitless – change your shirt and you’ve changed your entire look. We sat down with ELLE.com Fashion & Shopping Editor Sydney Wasserman for her expert advice on all things tops.

Rue La La: Okay, we need the inside scoop on flattering tricks! Are there different styles that work best on different body types?
Sydney: I believe women with curves should choose more form-fitting tops instead of trying to hide their shape in baggy styles. A shapeless shirt can make you look larger than you may be. A few more rules of thumb: a button-down top should never be too tight so that the buttons look like they’re about to pop off, and a T-shirt should hit right below the waistband.

Rue La La: We tend to lean towards dresses when going somewhere formal – but what types of tops work best for dressy occasions?
Sydney: The key is wearing fabrics that appear rich – if it’s a print, try well-draped chiffon. And a silk blouse is always right for a dressy occasion.
