Style Feature: Fall Pic(k)s

Fall is definitely my favorite season, and now that the weather has finally caught up with the calendar, it’s time to break out the layers. I wanted to share some looks that feature a few of my favorite pieces for fall and hopefully inspire some of your own.

1. Woolen Warmth

The reason I like fall so much is that it lets you mix the best parts of your wardrobe regardless of season. Chinos, silk scarf, wool vest, woven belt? Sure. Just remember to keep the colors complementary.

Extra Tip : An unstructured jacket can lend some casual style to an otherwise dressy outfit.

2. Live in Leather

Some days will inevitably be milder than others. That is why a good leather jacket is a quintessential part of any wardrobe. Throw it on over just about anything and you’re good to go.

Extra Tip : Great details can really make a piece stand out. Take the detail stitching under the jacket collar or the inner pant leg for example.

3. Down for Anything

Sometimes you don’t know what the day holds, which is when layering is particularly useful. A full-zip mock neck paired with a ‘down’ vest gives you the versatility for just about anything. The zippers let you stay comfortable and the mock-neck lets you leave the scarf at home.

Extra Tip : Corduroy is the fall fabric in my book, but everyone always does the same colors. That’s why these dusty rose cord pants are one of my favs. Embrace the cord (just shun the wide wale).

Fall is a great time to have fun with your clothes. Utilize seasonal fabrics and colors in creative ways. Find new ways to wear out-of-season pieces. Most importantly, showcase your style.

Stay stylish,
