Zara has our hearts when it comes to sophisticated work wear, and Topshop has that whole bleeding-edge, trendy London thing locked up — but when we want to channel a more laid-back kind of cool, it's AllSaints all the way.
With wares of significantly higher quality than its high-street neighbors and a style that's more effortlessly hip than painfully trendy, AllSaints' clothes are fashion-forward, completely wearable, and filled with luxe details that appeal to the discerning eye.
So, let the kids have fun with their cutouts and creepers...much as we may love high-street style, these are sophisticated, subtly sexy pieces to channel that effortlessly cool goddess we know we've got in us somewhere.
