Reel Style: Hart of Dixie

Rachel Bilson brings New York fashion to small town Bluebell, Alabama in the CW’s Hart of Dixie. This brand-new comedy/drama features Bilson as Zoe Hart, a fresh-faced and fresh-out-of-school doctor from the big city who takes over a small practice in the heart of the South. Premiering just last week, the pilot was full of inspiring outfits that you’d expect from a city girl with smarts and style sense.

1. C&C California Long Sleeve Twist Dolman Top ($58)
Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson) set off for the South in chic shorts, a tee and a leather jacket. This neutral top is perfect for traveling with its comfy jersey fabrication, long dolman sleeves, and twisted side seams.

2. Elie Tahari Rachel Sweater with Tweed Front ($298)
Heed the tweed. Knubby, textural tweed is IT for autumn. This Elie Tahari piece is a fresh take on the classic tweed jacket. Not a jacket at all, it’s actually a cute, boxy sweater with plenty of pretty little details: grosgrain trim, frayed edges, tweed front panel, and faux welt pockets at front. Cozy chic!

3. Theory Yessica Striped Top ($102)
Layer this swingy striped tee up for fall, and then let it stand alone come spring. Its warm beige color and solid black stripes complement any bottom, whether it be tucked into flared denim or chic trousers like Bilson’s. Roomy fit with three-quarter sleeves and solid lining.

4. Haute Hippie Quilted Suede Jacket ($995)
Supple suede and edgy hardware combine to make this Haute Hippie a go-to topper. Quilted suede is crafted into a structured and slighted cropped jacket, while chain and rope trim add fresh styling. Layer over anything from cropped pants to a flowing maxi.

5. Rag & Bone Malin Pant ($290)
Bilson wore her high-waisted, menswear-inspired pant perfectly in her Southern debut. Show off your waistline by tucking in a simple striped top and adding a skinny belt…and then show off your fab footwear by rolling up the cuffs in a slightly messy, casual way. Slim, straight leg pants with hidden zip and two welt slit pockets at back.

6. Marc Jacobs Pleated Silk-Taffeta High-Waisted Shorts ($280)
Take shorts from summer to fall with a leather jacket and booties, just like Rachel Bilson does with these fun Marc Jacobs shorts. High-waisted with pleating and cuffs and finished with front slant pockets and back welt pockets.

7. Alexander Wang Kasia Patent Leather Wedge Sandals ($275)
Shine on! These patent leather sandals were meant for strutting. Polish up any look (like Bilson’s jacket + rolled pant + striped top outfit) with Alexander Wang’s Kasia wedges. A 4.5inch heel lets everyone take notices of incredible finishes like braided details, open toes and rows of sexy straps.
