Any savvy dresser will agree that a stylish, well-rounded wardrobe is comprised of both understated classics and bold, statement pieces. No one knows this better than Diane von Furstenberg, whose fall collection includes plenty of the latter, including embellished dresses, printed coats, and brightly coloured jumpsuits that make dressing for fall easy. To put the theory to the test, we enlisted five fashion bloggers to style their favourite statement piece from the designer’s fall collection.
Scroll down to see how they wore the brand’s standout staples.
Who: Aimee Song of Song of Style
What She’s Wearing: Diane von Furstenberg Jocelyn Embellished Shift Dress ($898)
The Look: A crystal-embellished chiffon frock is perfect for formal soirees, but when styled with a structured tuxedo jacket, it’s also appropriate for casual cocktails or date night. Take a cue from Aimee, and add a pop of colour via a bright clutch to really complete the look.
Who: Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific
What She’s Wearing: Diane von Furstenberg Cynthia Jumpsuit ($428)
The Look: Tell a glamorous colour story this fall in a stunning cobalt jumpsuit. The minimalist one-piece boasts a chic boat neckline and front pleats for a ladylike look that’s well-suited for dinner parties and holiday get-togethers. Wherever you wear it, all eyes will be on you.
Who: Kimberly of eat.sleep.wear
What She’s Wearing: Diane von Furstenberg Daphnis Wool Cocoon Coat ($898)
The Look: For days when you don’t have a lot of time to pull an outfit together, throw on a statement cocoon coat. Its oversized shape makes it easy to layer over everything, while its bold abstract pattern instantly punches up your look. Here, Kimberly pairs hers with simple basics, like a crisp button-down and distressed skinny jeans.
Who: Jennifer Grace of The Native Fox
The Look: As a dramatic alternative to your infallible little black dress, try a sleek jumpsuit for an evening out. The one-piece creates a long, lean silhouette, and you can add a touch of glamour to your look, as Jennifer does, by breaking it up with gold accessories and a chic DVF envelope clutch.
Who: Annabelle Fleur of Viva Luxury
What She’s Wearing: Diane von Furstenberg Sonia Silk Jersey Maxi Gown ($598)
The Look: For unexpected spells of warm weather (or if you’re lucky enough to be jet-setting to a tropical getaway), slip into this bold, printed maxi dress. The brightly coloured pattern and feminine wrap-style silhouette make this a high-impact daytime look.
