Thanksgiving just happens to coincide with a major fall fashion boom throughout campuses. Syracuse is no exception. It may be the upstate weather getting more autumnal, or the windchill picking up, but now is the time of the fall fashion glory. Layering, a fall season must, is everywhere over campus and Fashionistas/os are utilizing the power of layering tailored tops with chunky knits, shawls, oversized scarves, you name it! This is also the time of the moccasin, a fashion stable that can add a whole lot of casual throw-and-go vibe to a look. The fall colors are also something to rave about. We get the deep cranberry crimsons, warm chestnut browns, and sweet golden yellows. Yes, Thanksgiving-time may be one of the best times to be grateful for fashion.
Here's a great fall look: This Fashionista's look combines multiple aspects of quintessential fall fashion while adding some cool and new twists. For starters, her half-button top (note the tucked in shirt!) has elements that convey the sophisticated tailored look that comes with fall fashion. I love the play on seersucker colors and lines. The worn blue in her shirt is mimicked by the worn dark washed skinny jeans. Note the rich color, nothing muted out. Her moccasins give this whole look a very cozy feel while adding some native influence. This same tribal feeling is seen in her knitted shawl. The shaman-like structure of the coat not only adds a lot of great movement to the look, but also plays up that old fall standard of layering! I think what really takes the cake for me is her hardware. The mix of bronze, copper, and gold exude a warmth that you'd feel from looking at a Thanksgiving dinner table. The dented and worn cuff is definitely an eye-catcher and adds to her earth toned colors. The final statement is her necklace; check out that druzy-cut pendant! The prong setting is organic looking and emphasizes the roughness of the stone.
Hint: Check out these lovelies: My pick for a knitted shawl sweater? This Elizabeth and James piece is at the top of my list. Coming in a strong second is this amazing La Garçonne Blanket Coat. For footwear, try slipping on these bootie moccasins from Urban Outfitters. And finally, warm-toned metals are simply harmonious in these House of Harlow 1960 stack bracelets.
