There are a handful of American designers who do classic sportswear well, and we think Derek Lam happens to be one of them. With expertly refined separates for fall, Lam created brilliantly layered looks that can easily translate from runway to reality.
For example, a simple staple dress worn over pants (instead of tights) makes for a feminine take on men's suiting. Then, throw an over-sized blazer onto the look for a bold, sophisticated finish. The best part? This Lam creation we've taken apart is easily accessible to those not in the market for a straight-off-the-catwalk ensemble.
