Jasmin Shokrian's Fall Collection Goes From Office To Outdoor Fete

While the latest trends always feel fresh and exciting, it's always the classic shapes that we return to time and time again. And although we always make sure our closets are stocked with the basics, sometimes a girl just wants the best of both the trendy and the impeccable—and Jasmin Shokrian's fall 2011 collection delivers just that. This L.A. native's fine-arts background shines as she takes simple, elegant silhouettes and revamps them to create versitile pieces that can be cinched, tied, or otherwise styled to the wearer's whim. The designer also takes everyday looks, such as the shirtdress, basic pants, and blouses, and elevates them from ordinary to extraordinary by using luxe silk and paring deep navy and blood-red with stark black and white. Perhaps the best thing about Shokrian's collection is that the pieces can be worn in any season—the loose construction is perfect for summer, but the addition of perfectly tailored coats and layering pieces allow the looks to work in even the chilliest of temps. Is there anything better than an outfit that can be worn all year long? We don't think so.
