Nope, you haven’t traveled back in time—you’ve stepped into Alice + Olivia’s fall 2012 presentation at New York Fashion Week. The ’60s mod meets Beetlejuice collection was filled with bold stripes, black lipstick, and simple silhouettes. We loveloveLOVED the long, skintight black lace dress over a nude slip (because, duh, we’re totally goth) and the floor-grazing striped sweater over a tight midi-length striped frock. A + O are constantly adding a funky edge to dinner party wear, which we can totally get behind. We could see sporting a pillbox hat or beret with any dress in our closet (like they do!) for an instant vintage feel. But, if you’re not into body-con dresses and lots of lace, their menswear-inspired pieces are just as fun.

First up—a wide-striped green and black suit! This statement piece is sure to turn some heads, but we could easily see these worn as separates for a less bold look. In another ensemble, A + O paired a floral blazer over a watercolor button-up shirt and shiny patterned black pants. We’d never think to put these pieces together, but we’re kind of into this daring look. Other key pieces include a Peter Pan collar and sparkly tie graphic sweater, a (literally) half black, half white dress, a sparkly ombre overcoat, a floor-length sequin emerald green gown with a black motorcycle jacket (!!!), and a leather bustier dress with a tulle skirt. If we’ve learned one thing from this presentation, it’s that 1) black lipstick goes with everything and 2) we need two-tone shoes in our lives ASAP. But what do you think? Do you like Alice + Olivia’s fall collection?
