It’s official: This mid-October Indian summer is freaking me out. I’m wishing for fall weather and patiently waiting to break out the jackets that have been collecting dust in the back of my closet. Voluminous outerwear took over this season, and my favorite silhouette is the cocoon coat. Here’s hoping I can wear one of these styles soon.
1. Topshop Textured Ovoid Coat
2. River Island Cream Boucle Oversized Coat
3. Wilfred FEI Coat
4. Babaton Damon Wool Coat
5. Rebecca Taylor Wool Coat with Shearling Collar
6. Whistles Elodie Biker Coat
7. Wilfred Clafouti Wool Coat
8. H&M Quilted Coat
9. Topshop Textured Fur-Lined Coat
My style isn’t overtly girly—I think I was a pre-teen the last time I wore pink—so I love classic pieces with an edgy twist. Case in point: This Ark & Co. brocade bomber jacket that’s right on trend for fall. A simple, boyish silhouette is transformed with textured gold fabric, chiffon sleeves and leather shoulder accents. I’d also like to mention that I’m really excited about my new Spitfire sunglasses.
Ark & Co. brocade bomber jacket, my trusty Wilfred Sauvage pants, Brochu Walker tank (similar style here), Alexander Wang Kori ankle boots (my must-have boot for fall), Spitfire sunglasses and Moda Luxe Braxton clutch (still out of stock, unfortunately).
The final in a four-part feature on fall essentials, today’s Sunday Shopping post is all about leather. An easy way to toughen up your wardrobe, leather has an urban, minimalist air that I love. Even the simplest clothes transform into something statement-making with a leather accent. Most of my choices below are faux—a less expensive (and much less cruel) alternative.
1. Karl Lagerfeld Leather-Trimmed Silk Shirt
2. Topshop Faux Leather Panel Tee (One of my Favorites!)
3. Mode Kungen Faux Leather Moto Jacket
4. Target Faux Leather Skirt (So Affordable!)
5. Talula Faux Leather Balfour Jacket
6. Wilfred Faux Leather Sauvage Pant (Featured in a Previous Outfit Post Here)
7. TNA Faux Leather Decosmos Hoodie
8. Wilfred Faux Leather Tartine Dress
9. Wilfred Faux Leather Ondria Sweatshirt
