Easing Into Fall

The weather is playing tricks on us, again! One day you’re mad that you aren’t wearing enough layers, while the next day you’re trying to peel the skin off your body because it’s randomly and overwhelmingly hot. Until we are a few weeks into autumn, figuring out what to wear each day is a mission. Here are my four tips to starting off the fall season with style and comfort in mind, so that you’re ready to tackle whatever Mother Nature throws your way. 1. Fabric Matters You can never go wrong wearing a sport jacket. If you’re not required to wear a suit for work, make sure to stock up on a few sport jackets that are made of a lighter fabric. Keep the wool away until the temperatures really drop. I like to use a sport coat also as a jacket when there are warm days and cool nights because it is one less piece of clothing to worry about during temperamental weather. It’s as I like to call it, a two-for-one piece. …

‘Tis The Season For Flannels

Textured sweaters and flannel shirts are two items, that when paired together, create a perfectly cozy winter look. While there are many ways to wear a flannel (un-buttoned with a v-neck tee, under a puffer vest, wrapped around your waist, etc), one of my favorite ways is dressing up the shirt by using it as a layering piece underneath a fitted sweater.For this look, I paired a burgundy and green flannel (perfect for the holiday season) with a speckled charcoal sweater and dark denim. When I use a v-neck sweater as a layering piece, I generally like to make sure the fabric is thin to create a fitted silhouette. This also allows pops of detail from your inside layering piece to show in areas such as your wrists (perfect for cuffing) and torso. Throw your favorite brown leather boots on to polish off the look and you are ready to hit all of your parties this season! Get the look: Shirt  Sweater  Denim 

Spotlight: Flannels

Nothing feel more fall-like than a comfortable flannel! The problem with flannels is that many of them feel itchy, starchy, or just plain rough. When shopping for this type of shirt, make sure you go for a softer fabric, one that you can picture yourself wearing all day long. Flannels are timeless, but many of them are a bit dull and boring. Make sure you pick some that have pops of bold colors and have patterns with bold thick and thin lines to give a more modern feel to this type of shirt. I like to layer it with a henley underneath it to give the look a more seasonally cozy feel. This is a piece everyone should have in their wardrobe for the upcoming fall and winter months and whether you throw it over a henley, layer it under a jacket or wear it standing alone, the shirt is sure to give you the perfect fall  look!???
