Fall is here, and you’re scouring your wardrobe day in and day out. Temperatures are dropping… how do you commute to work, run errands or sit through an al fresco brunch when you’re freezing? Though a cold front is on the horizon, it doesn’t mean you have to panic about sacrificing style for warmth. Keep reading for three takes on integrating outerwear into your daily rotation in the most elevated way possible.
If dark, early mornings have you struggling to get out of bed, a full monochrome look provides the perfect formula when you’ve slept through your alarm. A trench à la Burberry is always an essential fall staple, but extend its level of polish with a turtleneck and loose trousers to match. While logo belt bags have recently been a popular choice for staying chic on the go, up the cool factor by securing it cross-body for some street-style edge.
Think there’s no possible way to wear a dress in the fall? Think again. From Prada to Balenciaga, layers on layers on layers were all over this season’s runways. Make it your own with a mix of patterns, textures and colors, and get unconventional by topping off the perfect 9-to-5 blazer with a practical puffer. Technical fabrics are having a moment, and the juxtaposition of trim suiting and quilting creates an unexpectedly refined look. Don’t forget the carry-all-cum-statement-bag for all your necessities.
