Ageless outfit: leather jacket and maxi dress

Oh em gee, how is it September already? For those of us in San Francisco, it means summer is just getting started, but for the rest of you, it means fall is on its way. And with it, a roller-coaster of temperatures combined with a desire to wear all your new fall purchases. Transitional dressing can be both fun and frustrating, but for a fabulous take on it, let's look at one of my patron saints of ageless fashion, Rachel Zoe.


The dress
Maxi dresses are something I tend to associate with summer, but they're totally wearable for fall too, especially in an animal print like the one above. Here's a great leopard-print maxi from Ganni, the of-the-moment Danish label (here's the long-sleeve version if you want a more winter-friendly look).


The jacket
I love that RZ is wearing a leather blazer, instead of a motorcycle jacket—it would look too costumey (or cougary) with one. This Joe's Jeans Ines blazer has a similarly streamlined look, and is on sale too.


The bag
RZ is carrying a Birkin, and wouldn't that be nice? (Actually, who am I kidding, I'm more of a Kelly girl.) This Treasure & Bond satchel has a similar shape with a much more palatable price tag.


The sunglasses
RZ is never without her sunnies, and neither am I (they're necessary protection from the sun, and also I'm blind outdoors without them). These Illesteva Leonard sunglasses are round like RZ's, but with a slightly less exaggerated and more universally flattering shape.

Unfortunately, you can't see RZ's shoes in the above photo. Any ideas on what she's wearing?
