Fashion Week: Tracy Reese's "It" Factor for Denver

Tracy Reese FW09 New York 02-16-09Local women will like the pairing of Reese's flirty dresses and skirts with traditionally tailored jackets and coats. The overall look is one of ease--a nonchalant combination of exceptional wardrobe items.

The Gist: Reese is yet another designer seeking the right identity for a woman in today's tough times. And so she balances her signature look of sweetly feminine dresses and separates with solid workday pieces.

In a collection that loosely references 1920s Paris with its silhouettes (mainly mini-dresses that came in both tiered and chemise style), Reese combines the feminine with the masculine, such as a tiered ruffle skirt with a princess sleeve wool blazer, pinstripe pants with a cropped leather jacket, and a floral print drop-waist dress with a shawl collar tuxedo jacket.
