Fall has finally arrived and the temperature has taken a dip. As I walk through the streets of New York City, I’m noticing less sandals and more sweaters. I cannot wait for all the leaves to change into a fiery mix of oranges, yellows and reds. As you may know, fall is my favorite season. Wearing layers of sweaters, scarves and plaid shirts is what makes this season so fashionable and effortless.
This Fashionisto created the perfect fall look. His outfit consists of indigo denim jeans and a blue gingham collared shirt layered under a gray herringbone cardigan. The blue hue of the gingham shirt complements and synthesizes well with the gray cardigan. The element of his outfit that caught my eyes were his plaid oxfords. I was in awe when I saw the plaid socks peeking under his jeans. They definitely add the finishing touch to his ensemble. This outfit contains all the elements of preppy, but the socks and shoe combination hints a more fun attitude.This Fashionisto definitely pays close attention to detail. He seamlessly matches prints and colors together in the most subtle way. The blue and green plaid of the oxfords and socks matches perfectly with the blue hue of his jeans. Even better, the suede oxfords also pairs well with his olive watch. All in all, this ensemble is the perfect start to the fall season.
How To: Pair a light plaid shirt under a dark, contrasting cardigan. If you want a more casual look, you can wear denim jeans. If you prefer a more preppy look, sport a pair of navy trousers. As for the socks, you can choose any fun print to go with a pair of oxfords.
