The transition from summer to fall is all about layers and ease. Comfy knits, earth tones, plenty of layered jewelry and, of course, the still-essential bootie, this rustic, Bohemian trend oozes with personal style and hints at the season to come.
Santa Monica is a beachside city, bordered on three sides by the concrete sprawl of Los Angeles, and on the other side, the majestic sprawl of the Pacific Ocean—a marvelous mix of sophistication and kitsch.
Having great style isn’t just about trends and a shopping obsession—it’s about creativity, individualism and confidence. These five men and women embody all of those qualities—and then some—to make up LN’s first-ever Best-Dressed List.
There’s no question LN readers are in-the-know, so who better to ask about the things that make St. Louis stand out and stand proud? Here, we present the very best, as selected by our readers, in the 2014 Ladue News Platinum List!
A new season is here—and soft colors, stripes and florals abound! Our looks blend feminine shapes punctuated with standout jewelry. To show it all off, we took full advantage of the sunshine through the window-paned nursery at Bowood Farms.

The mood for fall is one of ease and comfort. Flowing skirts and roomy sweaters paired with layers of necklaces, stacks of bracelets and handfuls of rings create a look that is a bit Bohemian, a tad romantic and nothing short of chic.
The Colonial Marketplace in Ladue is almost complete. With only a small handful of vacancies left and stores opening left and right, this shopping strip is becoming a destination—in fact, so much so we thought you might like a guide book.
With the arrival of spring, new trends abound. And those trends are a bit rebellious: boucle jackets with shorts, mixing prints, spring leather and slick jeans. This season is all about breaking some rules and getting outside of your comfort zone—all while still looking effortlessly chic and put-together.

Prom is one of the biggest nights of the year where you want to look your very best. There are few rules anymore so don't hesitate to branch out a bit. Breezy florals, chic neutrals, bold short minis, or sparkly sherbet dresses all look modern and fresh. Paired with metallic shoes and bold jewelry, you're sure to have the time of your life.
We can think of no cozier place to spend a winter’s evening than Bar Les Frères, Zoe Robinson’s newest creation and one of the most charming and romantic new dining spots in St. Louis.
While it may seem obvious to showcase red items for the month of February, I have not completely abandoned featuring an actual trend. Red was big for fall and is continuing to be a strong color for spring (yes, spring is slowly arriving into stores).
Looking to add a little color and pattern to your abode? Consider geometrics. Few fabric patterns pack as much punch per square inch. Geometrics add instant graphic interest and style.
