Get the look: Jenni Kayne and Abaete

I know I've already waxed poetic about the high-waisted mini/boyfriend blazer/drapey tee combo from the Fall shows, but I thought I'd pull together a few pieces to show how to get the look in real life.

Jenni Kayne, Abaete: here's the look at Jenni Kayne and Abaete

Start with a fantastic blazer: Elizabeth and James Odette Blazer, $395 at, Larsen Gray Wall Street Jacket, $297 at I love this Elizabeth and James blazer, and the cropped length is perfect for those who want to highlight a waist and downplay hips. This Larsen Gray blazer is eco-friendly (!) and a more boyfriendy blazer alternative.

Add a high-waisted mini: Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Jute Belt Skirt, $350 at, Mint Jodi Arnold Bright Waistband Skirt, $297 at This Cynthia Vincent skirt comes with a super-cute built-in belt, perfecting for highlighting the thinnest part of your torso. If you already have curves, go for a slimmer, very slightly a-lined skirt like this one. If you want to try to create curves, try a stronger a-line skirt like this Mint skirt--the increased volume in the skirt makes it look like you have hips, even if you don't. And the pink waistband is so cute!

Top it off with a drapey tee and a long necklace: Monrow Oversized T, $77 at, Victorian Hippie Pearl Chain Necklace, $160 at I like this Monrow tee because it's just the right amount of oversized, and the slight sheerness and scoop neckline balance out the bagginess at the torso. I love the name Victorian Hippie. It's adorable. And so is this necklace. The mixture of pearls, leather, and chains is a little cheeky, but the length and soft drape make this necklace both versatile and perfect for dressing up any tee.
