This season, I'm having a serious obsession with anything golden hued. From mustard to saffron to bronze to camel, this rich color just screams fall. Bonus points luxe fabrications like velvet and satin!
I am so excited to finally be talking about winter accessories. It is slowly but surely cooling down here in New York, so that means bundling up with some fabulous new cold weather must-haves. Again, plaids are everything this season. And if you're not comfortable going all-out in a plaid shirt or dress, a scarf is the way to do it. Oversized proportions and classic tartans are everywhere and at every price point. While I almost always prefer a natural fiber (wool, cashmere or cotton), the acrylic scarves I've been seeing this season have been blowing me away. They're soft, drapey, and CHEAP so you can stock up and not feel guilty if you leave one in a cab!
Basics are tough. To me they're like a great pair of jeans- you really have to try a lot of brands and decide what works best for you and your lifestyle. Do you wear a suit to work? A formfitting, luxe tee in a rayon blend is probably your best bet. No rules? Creative types have more freedom here and can play around with shape, texture and pattern. At the end of the day, you have to be mindful about what you're wearing your basic tee with and what purpose it will serve. Below is a round-up of both layering pieces and tees that stand on their own.
Nothing says fall like a good ol' crunching-leaves-through-the-park cozy sweater. I can just picture all of the outfits I'll make in the upcoming months; an oversized sweater with leather leggings, a cropped sweater with a floaty skirt, a cable knit sweater with destroyed boyfriend jeans .. And any of these outfits paired with boots from yesterday's post is basically the perfect fall look. In sweaters I always gravitate towards novelty stitches, an interesting shape (asymmetric hem, high-low hem, oversized, etc) and a marled texture. I think all of these things add up to an expensive looking sweater. Which, of course, you didn't pay full price for.
