DESIGNER:
Nicole Miller

INSPIRATION: Neutrals, sportswear, military, safari

TOP LOOKS: Great skinny pants in dusty olive green, particularly the ones with a criss-cross waist. Jackets that are inspired by classic silhouettes (biker jacket, flack jacket), but updated.

ACCESSORIES: Platform shoes and ankle boots with peep toes. Silver and cut glass earrings.

WHAT WE THOUGHT: There's a lot of green going on in this collection, which can be a bit overwhelming. But up close, these pieces are all have something kind of interesting going on. There are skinny pants with ruching up the sides in a cotton/metal fabric. All over sparkle continues, but is toned down by the earthy colors Miller chose. The obvious menswear cues continue.

"I think girls really like that tough edge," Miller told StyleList. "When the edgy fashion is meeting Main Street."

What is missing, however, are a ton of dresses, and that's intentional.
