Autumn is officially here, even if it’s still feeling like summer in many locales. Under the heading of “buy now, wear later” here are a few things on my style radar for cooler (and wetter) days ahead.
From Paris With Love: Fall Styles For Women
Sezane’s Autumn collection just dropped, and there are some really lovely pieces in it. What I like about this brand (besides their commitment to sustainability) is that their styles exemplify that French “basics, but with interesting details” aesthetic. Take that navy cardigan above. The scalloped edges and (slightly) puffed sleeves take the style quotient up a notch. Wear it open or closed. It’s a versatile, travel-friendly piece.
Florals are everywhere this Fall, but you don’t see many with a brown rather than black background. This blouse is light enough to wear on its own while the weather’s still warm, and will layer nicely underneath a sweater or jacket. Even though I’m not usually a florals gal, this print charmed me. I ordered and I’m keeping it. The tie is removable. The fabric is sheer, so I’ll add a lightweight camisole underneath. (Seems to run TTS; my usual size 38 was a good fit.)
I’m also really tempted to try this little bomber jacket, which could be a great transitional season piece. (And one that wouldn’t feel to heavy come Spring.) It’s also offered in a black and white houndstooth which looks pretty great too.
This lightweight wool scarf is so pretty!
If you’re concerned about ordering from Europe, don’t worry: delivery and returns from the U.S. are free. I’ve found that a lot of their popular styles can sell out quickly, so if I see something I like, I don’t hesitate.
Women’s Weatherproof Ankle Boots
There’s actually some rain in the forecast later this week, which reminded me that I want to update my weatherproof ankle boots. They’re one of my preferred footwear styles for travel, plus if we have another wet winter, they’ll get plenty of use at home. It’s easy enough to find options in black, but I’m holding out for something in my warm color palette.
But I’ll admit, I’m also tempted to go with something animal print. If my palette were cooler, I’d be all over these.
