Best in Black: REISS New Arrivals

Thursday, January 29, 2015

If you love timeless, well-crafted separates, Duchess Kate favorite REISS is a label worth your attention.

UK-based REISS has been in business since 1971, but just recently found a following in the U.S. thanks to the above mentioned royal fan. I find that their dresses and coats are particularly strong. And, I won’t lie, I love that they make a lot of black clothes. I recently took a spin around their new arrivals section and found more than a few basic black options that turned my head. Check out my favorite new finds…

This mid-weight crepe dress is a perfect wear to work staple. It’s slim enough to be flattering, but still very appropriate for daytime, and can be easily transformed by changing up accessories. It’s also available in a pale glacier blue shade.

I love that jumpsuits are storming back onto the scene. They are as effortless as pulling on a dress, but more unexpected, especially for evening. The plunging v-neck and cropped leg make this jumpsuit particularly versatile as a nighttime option.

The slouchy fit, high fold-detail neckline, back buttons, and elbow length sleeve combine to make this jersey blouse interesting in an architectural way. Pair it will skinny jeans for a casual look or a pencil skirt or trousers for a smart work outfit. It’s also available in off white.

I’m thinking this chain-detail top is probably not the easiest thing to clean. But, it’s gorgeous and would be a flawless night out option for the woman who has moved past the “party tank” phase of evening wear. It’s also available in off white.

A relaxed black coat is a minimalist closet staple that will cover chilly days from fall to spring in most climates. The oversized lapel and flap pockets on this coat are stylish, but not overbearingly so.
