So, we know you're still reveling in finally getting to wear those amazing cut-out dresses (and capes and jumpsuits and short suits) from Samantha Pleet's spring '12 collection, but fall is not as far away as it seems. Beach days will chill, leaves will fall, and your favorite summer dress will have you shivering in no time (come on, you know it's
depressingly true). But what better way to prepare for the dreaded end of summer than to dress it up in updated fall versions of your favorite spring pieces?
Samantha Pleet's fall '12 collection takes the great silhouettes and subtle details (and, of course, those sick cut-outs) and transforms them into a cool girl's autumn dream in mustard silks and fall florals (they exist!). Although every one of Samantha Pleet's collections draw from various inspirations (fall '12 is inspired by the Pre-Raphaelites and neoclassical architecture, among other impossibly cool refs), Pleet's gear always exudes classic beauty with a quirky twist.
A dash of red velvet, great boots, and some major gold accents (note to self: buy golden halo hat and metallic eyeshadow ASAP) — the collection has everything a cool New York girl needs for the cool New York months to come.
Peep the (Samantha) Pleet fall '12 collection ahead and feast your eyes on the one thing that could make us wish summer would go by just a little bit faster.
