DRAPER JAMES Reese Witherspoon brings southern style to wardrobes and homes Words by Claudia Paredes Reese Witherspoon launched her retail brand Draper James with the hope to bring a little bit of that southern love into everyone's closet. She tells us that in the south you cannot be too kind, too gracious, or too well dressed —and these virtues run through her fabulous collection and honor her southern roots. The brand is inspired by her grandparents, Dorothea Draper and William James Witherspoon, whose impeccable style and grace was always noticed by Reese, even at a young age. She learned everything from them —her elegant style, her manners, and to take pride in home. The eternal love she holds for the south is what makes Draper James special. Draper James offers a wide selection of dresses, handbags, and accessories for every occasion. Reese's grandmother did not have many dresses, but knew how to make the most of them with the accessories she had in-hand. All the accessories available at Draper James work fabulously with any style. Add a necklace to change a look, and complement it with a matching bracelet and earrings. Accessorizing is a must. A nice handbag goes a long way, and gives whatever you are wearing a boost. The Scotty Check Owen Tote is perfect for the holidays. This warm classic bag is made from plush wool plaid and comes with navy leather handles, and a removable strap. Inside, there is plenty of room for notebooks, makeup, a tablet —even a small laptop. Like most Draper James products, this one is made to match other items in the collection. And a woman must never leave the house without her sunglasses, no matter what season it is. The Camel sunglasses are sophisticated and will work for any occasion, especially a stroll through the park or beach picnic. Draper James offers a breath of fresh air. All clothing is clean, elegant, and made to match the style of today's modern woman. Dresses are very versatile, and there is one for every occasion. Whether you are looking for the prefect floral dress for a spring wedding or a fitted cocktail dress for a holiday office party, Draper James has you covered. There are also plenty of combinations for your everyday lifestyle. Less formal options such as the Printed Parker Vest, with a beautiful large plaid pattern, pair nicely with a T-shirt or a denim blouse with jeans. It's a classic look that will never go out of style. Looking for something fancier? Choose from their wide range of blouses and shirts; and wear it with a pencil or a tweed skirt. It's simple to look pretty and put together with all these amazing options that Draper James has. Every piece from the collection works fabulously on its own as well as in harmony with other Draper James products. Bring some of that charming southern style into your life with Reese's clothing, accessories, and home accents — many of their products are produced in the United States, which Draper James takes pride in.
