Who else is ready for fall? It can’t come quick enough! I’ve been using every excuse to layer up and sip hot tea. Already this summer I’ve been caught sweating in felt hats and wearing booties with my skirts and dresses in anticipation for the cooler weather. This week, I was inspired by Esteban Cortazar’s fall 2015 collection. His combination of rustic reds and charcoal blacks amidst layers of fabric give the collection a classic cold weather vibe, but take it up to an edgy notch. Who doesn’t need a little bit more edge in their life?
In my look, I mimicked some of the colors in the collection. I was really inspired by look number three. The metal details on the jacket give a little structure to the otherwise loose-fitting outfit. The outfit really consists of two colors, which keeps it simple, but it still has a level of sophistication because of the different hues and contrasts in the look. I threw a classic black leather moto jacket over a jersey T-shirt dress. The T-shirt dress is perfect for this in-between weather that’s been going on lately; the dress is loungy and thin, so it’s cool enough to wear in the evening heat. I also added a felt hat to my outfit, which as I said earlier, has become quite the staple of mine recently. To complete my look I threw on black leather mules, which keep a hint of summer in the outfit. I guess I’m not completely ready to say goodbye.
