REBECCA TAYLOR "Later Gator" Collection

New Zealand-born designer Rebecca Taylor moved to New York with $600 dollars to her name in the early 1990s, got a job under Cynthia Rowley and eventually struck out on her own with a business partner. Now Taylor is celebrating her label’s 15th year, with runway shows that bring out heavyweight socialites, actresses, and reality starlets.

Taylor’s “Later Gator” collection, made of alligator skin-embossed silk-jacquard, features easy, relaxed shapes that come off as feminine but not frou-frou girly.

Rebecca Taylor Alligator-Embossed Silk Jacquard Tunic-Dress (RRP US$325)
The subtle but chic croco pattern will set you apart as a fashion individualist, while the classic scoop neck and slouchy cut keep it rooted in tradition and comfort. Pair with a classic black blazer and sharp heels for the office, then wear with thong sandals on the weekend!

Again the alligator jacquard silk fabric lends rich textural appeal to an easy-chic shape. The sleeves can be worn either long or elbow-length. See the endless ways to wear this top, here, and seek out new heights of style :-)
