While Tibi collections have always churned up sportswear-inspired, anti-girly-but-still-feminine designs, fall '14 took it to a new level. And, this time, the customer is left considering all her textured options. Amy Smilovic piled fuzzy overcoats on top of coordinating scarves and paired textured dresses with a matchy-matchy, waist-tied layer, while to-the-knee, turtleneck sweaters and moto jackets offered something a bit more plush.
Of course, if sleek and smooth is more your style, the fall collection also accommodates. There were tailored skirt-pant hybrids, delicate dresses that blend silky and sheer, and a shiny off-the-shoulder top paired with cropped pants — together standing as an example of how the Tibi woman prefers to show skin in a clever, not obvious way.
Frankly, there's no reason to be completely torn between Tibi texture vs. Tibi tailoring. The New York line seems to have crafted a fall collection that wins either way. Now, should you sport them with the extra-wide brim hats that Pharrell's been favoring lately? Well, that's a more-daring personal preference, which is entirely up to you.
