Switching gears a bit from the print-mixing, suited-up dressing of collections we've seen in the past, the fall '13 collection for 10 Crosby has mastered a new, take-it-easy vibe. The Derek Lam diffusion line — which has already earned our accolades and has kept us on our toes every season — has filled its lookbook with easy, long-sleeved dresses in super-simple patterns and charming stripes, soft and neutral knits, and outerwear given an edge with fuzzy trimmings.
Most importantly, 10 Crosby once again possesses a sexy-without-trying-too-hard appeal. This season hits the mark with deep V-neck cuts on otherwise straight-line dresses, up-to-there slits for Angelina-like leg action (done tastefully, we assure you), and peekaboo openings on the back of chunky knit sweaters in case things get a little too hot under the collar.
Topped off with a selection of plaid, oversized jackets and pointy-toed soles, this is one collection not to be missed. Now sit back and shuffle through all the slides — perhaps more than once.
