Want List: Celebrity Designers

Sometimes I’m a little wary of celebrities who say they’re going to design a line. However, some of them get to work on a daily basis with talented stylists and brilliant designers, so it’s no wonder some of them have come out with amazing items and collections. Here are a few of my favorites.

  1. This blazer from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s Elizabeth and James collection is genius. The tailor of a blazer with the warmth of a faux fur hood is awesome.
  2. This blazer is also from Elizabeth and James. The structure, the strong shoulders, and the ruched sleeves are impeccable.
  3. This jacket from Jessica Simpson for Macy’s is a great color. It’s so bright and perfect for the middle of winter. I also love the big collar.
  4. After the activewear challenge on Project Runway last week, I decided to check out Heidi Klum’s collection for New Balance. I found this amazingly cute sweatshirt jacket. The ruffles make it chic, not sloppy.
  5. Lauren Conrad, after a dud collection of her own, partnered with Kohl’s to design a line. My personal favorite this season is this delicate lace jacket. The back is actually slightly sheer, and the whole jacket is visually interesting. It’s also quite affordable.
