Fall is fast approaching and with that are thoughts of sweater weather, Snuggies and pumpkin spice lattes. But despite the notions of fireplaces and fostering your inner couch potato, style should never falter even in the colder season. Here we’ve devised a list of fall must-haves for the upcoming –BER months.
The Perfect Bootie – Madewell Billie Booties
Every fall wardrobe needs a staple and year after year, the bootie makes a comeback. The low, stacked heel and supple leather combines sexiness and practicality. It takes your look from daytime chic to evening glam without requiring an outfit change. These Madewell Billie booties sure aren’t afraid of a few rainy encounters.
The Knitted Sweater – Daisum Chain Knit Sweater from Ted Baker London
Another staple is a tried and tested pullover sweater in a classy chain knit pattern. You don’t need to associate frumpiness whilst wearing sweaters, you can always dress it up by wearing your hair in a chic chignon and accessorizing with statement earrings or over a crisp, white Oxford shirt. Wear it with your favourite pair of jeans or fleece-lined leggings for a comfy but stylish pairing. This gorgeous, navy blue sweater is available from Ted Baker London. It’s made with a wool/nylon blend, featuring long sleeves with ridge cuffs, fitted silhouette and a curved hem with side slits.
The Cozy Scarf – Tibi’s Wool and Cashmere-blend Scarf
Tucked into belts or insouciantly draped over a shoulder, scarves are fall’s must-have accessory. Tibi‘s deep burgundy version is woven from plush yarns of wool and cashmere. Work yours with a classic coat and over-the-knee boots for the perfect fall look.
Suede Wrapped Footwear – TOD’S Two-Eye Chukka
While suede may not be everyone’s first choice for footwear when the rain starts coming, it is important to understand that a properly treated suede needn’t be afraid of a few puddles. This casual chukka from TOD’S comes in blue, green, red and tan, although these colours have only been personally observed in Germany. The Two-Eye Chukka features a hidden heel and subtle suede that alludes a casual but elegant look that takes a man anywhere.
Quilted Still Matters – Frank & Oak’s Quilted Hunting Jacket
That quilted look you loved so much from last season is back again and with even more gusto. Quilted has grown from simple bomber-esque jackets and made its way into sweaters, purses and even shoes. Available in stone and black hues, this modern, quilted hunting jacket from Frank & Oak is fitted, cozy and the perfect autumn companion. With Japanese style front pockets and a longer back for mobility, you’ll be glad you went with this jacket.
The New Bag – Bristol 3 from BREE
The Bristol 3 in Mocca from BREE is a perfectly sized day bag for ferrying lunch, a 13 inch Macbook Pro and a few documents to and from work. Its internal and external zip pockets and places to quickly stash things on the inside make it a great and versatile bag. The leather is high quality cowhide and the hardware is made of lightweight metals. When this bag has little in it or is empty, it hardly even feels like there is anything hanging off your shoulder.
As this is a German brand and currently not available in North America, one can justify their next Euro trip based on this bag alone!
