As I mentioned last week (video here), I attended an event at Brooks Brothers to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Brooks Brothers holds this event in Boston every year where they donate a portion of the proceeds of all sales to the BCRF. I generally don't find the clothes at Brooks Brothers to be my personal style however I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised at several of the items that I saw in the store. There were still all of the quintessential Brooks Brothers items, but the smattering of things that suited my taste was a lovely change. Of course, the things I liked sell for a higher price point than the standard!
I love the classic simplicity of this camel top. I like it with the matching skirt but I also think it would look lovely with a pair of grey trousers. And this is the perfect canvas for some bold statement jewelry.
This is the kind of top that I could get quite a lot of use out of. There is so much that is special about this from the metallic jacquard fabric to the elbow length bell sleeves.
Talk about a coat worth getting through the winter in; the floral jacquard fabric, removable fur collar and the cocoon shape all are calling my name!
The picture of this muted leopard coat doesn't do its craftmanship justice. The seaming detail in the back defines the body in the best way.
And lastly is this leather shift dress in navy. This is the kind of dress that can carry you through the better part of the year (except the really hot summer months). Wear it now with tights and boots or with sandals and bare legs once it's warm again.
So what do you think of what Brooks Brothers has to offer?
