Shopbop’s picks from Donna Karan New York’s “Casual Luxe” fall collection are what every girl wants in her closet right now. It’s super chic and majorly comfy and casual at the same time, so the fact that you look amazing seems to be entirely by accident. The outfit on the left so reminded me of Yves Saint Laurent’s boho chic “Russian” collection for fall 1976 that I had to place them side by side for you here. The boho chic look is everywhere these days. But you can sense from the 1976 photograph how revolutionary it was 35 years ago. What can I say but thank God for YSL, who would have been 75 on Monday.

P.S. The Donna Karan fur vest is sold out (What?! With that price tag!) at Shopbop, but you can still buy it for $3,900 at DonnaKaran.com.
