SARTORIAL SANITY: St. John the Victorious

Growing up, St. John was always the brand my grandmother went to for what she called the epitome of 'timeless.' From my grandmother and mom drooling over the classic knits and opulent tweeds, I always thought that St. John was an 'older' house. But last Fall I bought my first St. John piece--a grey, cropped and ruched jacket.

I am now officially converted to the 'older is wiser' team and am taking queues from my more 'sophisticated' family. Pairing these pieces with younger and more modern designers makes for a classically cool look--just like the industry defining brand has done in combining a simple white t-shirt with a fur muffler and a formal floor-length skirt.
