I am loving all the foliage these days. Even when the leaves flutter down from the trees in the autumn breeze and gently (or usually not so gently) smack me in the face. How could I get mad? The air is cool and dry; the weather is so great that I start to forget humidity ever existed (if only we could actually banish that awful thing). And as the leaves turn to beautiful shades of crimson, gold, emerald and burnt orange, I think of the great outfits these colors could yield. And yes I did just say yield (sorry, the science terms are bound to creep up sooner or later). If the leaves look so great together in their colorful medley, why can't we? This week’s Fashionista perfectly embodies a beautiful fall day.
This Fashionista is rocking an eclectic mix of colors, textures and prints, and I am loving every bit of it. Her plaid coat is the centerpiece of course and instantly introduces several colors into the equation without looking tacky. She then wears a striped black sweater with touches of mesh to add a fun layer of texture. Her chestnut corduroys pair well with one of the subtle browns in her coat. Black boots complete the look — they match the sweater and really pull everything together. She adds a pair of vintage beige sunnies, a gray purse and a topknot, and she is ready to start her day.
To achieve a look like this week’s Fashionista, start with this great plaid coat by Madewell. Next, pair it with these corduroy pants in red. Throw on a dark sweater of your choosing and finish off with these tall leather boots. Don’t forget to accessorize with some sunglasses, a purse and whatever else your day requires. There you have it, you look as fab as a lovely fall afternoon!
