Taking the cue are the ladies behind Redtoenails, with Artean, the new lower-priced clothing line from the trendy Brooklyn boutique and label whose luxe designs border on the subversive (think frocks and tops made with naughty toile prints).
For the collection they’re doing dress-up clothes with big collars and hoods (Yoda Hoodie swing coat), high waists (pencil skirt), and bodices (tiered party dress) starting at $100.
Right on point with the season’s trends: a back-drape dress that hangs just so on the shoulders, a puffed-sleeve blouse in cream with contrasting black yoke, and an awesome brocade hooded coat with gold rope and tassels.
So make some space in your closet.
Your spending habits can spare the change.
