What's The Story?

Stella Jacket "Katha" means story or fable in Sanskrit and so Stella McCartney's camel coated, peplum, Katha jacket is aptly named.  It tells the story of three of this season's hottest trends - (1) the return to ladylike, curvy shapes; (2) the emphasis on tailored suiting; (3)the current explosion of neutral coloring. (The two-button shoulder closure is also faintly military - another white hot trend for fall.)  This is an investment piece, for sure, but one that can be justified when you consider it's uber versatility- pair with skinny jeans, narrow pants, a pencil skirt, or even a sheath dress.  As appropriate for work as it is for a night out, it's the ultimate day-to-night piece for fall.  It can also serve as the happy ending to your wardrobe story.
