As senior fashion editor at
, Eleanor Strauss has seen hundreds of garments, trends, and designers come and go. So, it's only natural that she has the discerning eye and fashion chops to make sense of it all in her own wardrobe. It's with this in mind that we set out to chronicle Strauss' eclectic style—with holiday dressing in mind. Indeed, it's this time of year when the temps are dropping that style stars are really turning up the heat on their expertly layered looks. Need proof? Just peep Strauss' week's worth of party-ready ensembles.
Including feminine lace that works for both chilly days and summer heat, loud (but not overbearing) outerwear, and an elegant T-shirt that can work for nighttime, too, this lady's closet is definitely the stuff of an industry professional who turns heads on the reg (yes, even in NYC—and yes, even during Fashion Week). Get to know the down-to-earth, stylish mom right here. Life envy, much?
