1. She Woke Up Like This!
#TeamBeautiful caught up with super stylist-turned-designer June Ambrose to preview her new collection June By June Ambrose for HSN during Fashion Week and she’s a bubble of energy even at 9am! Check some of the pieces we eyed at the presentation. The collection debuts on the network September 12, with another round of new offerings in November. Happy shopping!
2. She Wears The Pants
On the day we caught up with June she rocked clothes from the collection, including these zipper-detailed faux leather pants that’ll turn heads with their plaid paneling on the sides and back.
3. Dress Up (Or Down)
The collection is punctuated by classically styled dresses with detailing to make them different than what you already have in your closet. The best part: switch up the accessories (tights and boots here, strappy sandals there, a statement bag) and the frocks can move from day to night.
4. Print This
While most of the dresses come in solid colors, splashy print is also available in this fall line.
5. In The Details
While the accessories are hands down bolder than the clothes, June’s structured apparel also features detailing to help make the pieces them stand out. The collection’s sole jacket includes a quilted sleeves, plaid paneling and a pop of cobalt blue. “My girl is like biker chic glam from the ’70s” June said of the client she’s targeting. “You could wear this in a classic way or get funkier with [my] chain boots.”
6. (Faux) Leather Love
This mid-calf faux leather skirt (with pockets!) is an on-trend staple that can be worked so many ways for fall. We love it!
7. Dare To Go There
Some of the accessories — like these cut-out booties with chain and plaid detailing — may not be for the shy or fashion faint of heart at first glance, but we know June specializes in helping her clients and fashionista followers see how to pull off even the boldest designs! “It’s about taking things out of context and at least seeing how they feel or look,” she says.
8. Cut It Out
This cutout bootie comes in several different colors including metallic gold, black and black and white (these are the shoes June was sporting — with her faux leather pants, button up shirt and an oversized blazer — when we met her. And how cute did they look on!?).
9. Baby Steps
“The girl who doesn’t like heels — or know how to walk in them — can start here and graduate,” June tells us of the wedge bootie. How to wear them? “I’m wearing them now with pants, but I’ve also worn them with dresses — full or fitted — you can wear them with a skirt — A-line or the trapeze leather skirt [from this collection].”
10. Hello Lovah!
For the beauties who can handle a heel, these metallic strappy sandals with fringe and hardware detailing are a win!
11. Wild Thang
From oxford shoes to the sexy strappy sandals we love, animal print detail is prevalent throughout the collection’s accessories.
12. Throw It In The Bag
June’s bags are designed with details that’ll make them pop. Think quilted, faux fur trimming, chains and pops of leather like on this style.
