Fashion month has finally come to an end. While the magazines are already classifying trends and key concepts for next fall (Anything goes! Birds! Witchcraft! Neon! Pastels! Muffs!) I thought I’d pick a week’s worth of outfits that’d I’d actually wear (in a perfect world). These subtle textures, sleek silhouettes, and mid lengths feel fresh enough to incorporate into spring styling with lighter fabrics and colors. Here goes…
MONDAY // Suiting and 1930’s-inspired tailoring felt boss lady chic at Jenni Kayne. I could live without the random shoulder fur, but I love the relaxed fit (and vibe) of this double-breasted jacket.
TUESDAY // J. Crew mixed sorbet pastels with spice tones and soft, nubby textures for fall. I love this drop waist coat with cropped pants and woven copper heels. The pink coat trend that we saw all over the spring runways (and on the streets this month) gets a slimmed down, tucked in update with this coat. I’m all about it.
WEDNESDAY // Ok, maybe this Wes Gordon beaded dress isn’t not going to fit into any Wednesday plans I have anytime soon, but I love this long sleeve, mid-length cut for work. I predict a lot of mid-length skirts with boots and fitted tops next fall.
THURSDAY // Thakoon’s quilted plaid shirtdress might just be update to the chambray shirtdress I’ve worn into the ground for the past few seasons. Undone in the best way- super easy to slip on with boots and call it a day.
FRIDAY // Overalls seem to be all over the place at the moment but I love A.P.C’s monochromatic styling with this chiffon printed blouse. It’ll take you from casual Friday (maybe with a blazer?) to happy hour to karaoke. Crimped hair optional.
SATUDAY // Just work with me here. I’m obsessed with this drop waist, Downton Abbey appropriate silk stunner from Jenni Kayne. Lady Mary might say it’s a bit short, but she would be wrong.
SUNDAY // I don’t know, brunch just seems like the place to wear leopard. This Sportmax dress with leather detailing and flattering silhouette pairs nicely with a Bloody Mary and eggs.
So, now we’ve all decided what we’ll wear next fall, maybe, just maybe, we can move onto spring.
