If you're under the spell of the wrong guy, Tory Burch wants to put you on the right track.
Come fall, you'll see polished and proper looks mixed with leather and lace to help every prim girl realize her own potential.
“To me it was all about tailored suits, nipped waists, a little peplum—sexiness, but not sort of in an obvious way,” said designer Tory Burch.
And if your relationship has ruffled your emotions, Burch hopes some t-strap shoes, spectator pumps and skinny high heels will help you get back on your feet.
“We've all been there. You know that when you wear something great it makes you feel a certain way or if something is going on in your life it sort of affects the way you dress, so I think it's a really interesting approach to a show,” said Kate Dimmock of People StyleWatch.
And get ready to show off your new attitude along with one of Burch's must-have handbags
“She's right on the pulse of what women want. They want the wrong guy!” said Stephanie Solomon of Bloomingdales. “You need the right clothes when you're dating the wrong guy.”
And don't worry if he's just not that into you. Burch says this is your time to shine.
“Get over it, move on, get out there and have some fun and look great doing it,” said Burch.
And once you've kicked the wrong guy to the curb, Nanette Lepore wants you to kick off your heels and get ready for her disco party.
“The inspiration for fall was a mix of dandyism. I'm loving Oscar Wilde and the aesthetics movement and a little bit of tarot. So it's a bit of mysticism and iconic imagery and a wild dance party,” said Lepore.
And if you need something to wear to your next affair, Lepore's color palette of cyan, blue, flame, mulberry and metallic gold has you covered.
“I really love it. I really like how it's still really colorful even though it's for fall,” said Violet Lepore, Nanette’s daughter.
And with her beading and embellishments, this season the devil is in the details.
“She has a very clear and singular vision. She doesn't pander to the status quo. You always know they are her clothes,” said actor Stanley Tucci.
And come fall, jaws will hit the floor when your sport your Lepore.
