Emerson Fry’s Simple, Sexy Silhouettes for Summer

EMERSON-FRY-TOP-CAROLYN-WHITEThe best clothing, in my opinion, works in at least two seasons, dresses up or down, and makes me feel beautiful without cutting off circulation or disabling my ability to bend at the waist. At first glance, Emerson Fry’s spring/summer collection fits all three criteria.

I was immediately drawn to the collection’s sea of white and black, classic shapes, and wardrobe staples: a gauzy pullover sweater with an open-knit, a boxy top with drop shoulders, a sleeveless stretch-cotton jacquard shirt. Any could be paired with their Mick 2 skinny jean, which features a flared ankle slit, or the short Portia wrap skirt with its curved tulip-shaped hem. All together, the pieces strike a balance between comfortable and tailored, and can be easily mixed and matched — plus, they’d make weekend packing a cinch.

Emerson Fry’s offerings are more than just black and white, however. Standouts include an abstract floral pattern on an open-back dress and a jumpsuit with a deep U-back — not something I might usually try — but here just understated enough to make the look accessible. Overall, the collection is modern and feminine, but classic enough that I can imagine wearing the pieces over and over again.
