Adore These Adornments

"People have always looked to me for a bit of sparkle," Taylor says. "You can wear something beaded for day, as long as you pair it with something casual. It’s all in the mix." Rebecca Taylor silk-blend top, $275; Dahlia, 352-381-0061

Coco Chanel Inspiration

Taylor says Chanel is a major influence on her work, citing the iconic designer’s groundbreaking use of soft fabrics, embellishments and black for daytime.

Keep It Feminine

Taylor understands what pretty is: flirty, ethereal, flattering. To that end, she uses lots of sheer or lightweight fabrics (tiered and ruffled to great effect) in muted hues of black, gray and slate. This is very popular, she says, "with professional women who wear suiting but also want to look ladylike." Rebecca Taylor cotton chiffon-blend dress, $550; 212-966-0406

Play With Prints

Pretty blouses, a Taylor staple, are best worn with something simple on the bottom to keep the look balanced. "The trick is to find a print that doesn’t overwhelm you, in a pattern that you like," Taylor says. "And then wear one printed piece at time."
