I Heart Daily loves young, up and coming designers, and 26-year-old Alison Lewis of the modernly vintage line, Lewis, is one of our favorites. Her vibrant Spring/Summer 2010 collection was just revealed at New York Fashion Week amidst a whimsical set of carnival-themed props. “The clothes were inspired by the idea of teenage rebellion meets summer of love,” says Alison. “I wanted to design that dress you would wear all summer to run around with your friends.” But fashion is weird, because it’s barely fall and we’re just putting away our summer clothes! So to keep things in fashionably seasonal order, Alison gave us her three essential accessories for a fall wardrobe.
1. Ines Sunglasses ($11). "I found these glasses in yellow and somehow I've made them match everything. People always ask me if they're vintage. The shape is totally classic and looks good on almost everyone. The best part is since they're only $11 you don't have to feel bad abusing them (I'm guilty of never putting glasses in cases) and if you lose them you can buy another pair!"
2. Pauper Scarf, The Dance ($150) "I have been collecting vintage scarfs for a long time. I often find them at flea markets, on eBay, or on Esty. I love how this Pauper Voile scarf looks like a watercolor and the soft colors make it so lovely and easy to wear. It's an instant way to dress up jeans and t-shirt. I often tie them in my hair or just around my neck like a necklace."
3. Keds Champion Navy Canvas ($35) "I have always been a Keds girl. I prefer the original sneaker in navy (or denim). I usually take the laces out and wear them as my go-to shoes. I actually dressed all the models with Keds in my spring/summer 2010 show! They are so cute with dresses in the summer. They are also shoes that are sort of meant to get dirty, which I love -- the more broken in the better."
