Ready or not, here fall comes. Summer nights, beach days, and salty hair happenings give me the autumn blues every September. 500 days of Summer for President, anyone? The only thing that gets me through is epic fall fashion. It is now appropriate for me to be donning biker jackets and snakeskin boots without mothers holding their children tightly as I pass by. I’ll be diving head first into floor grazing coats, eskimo puffers, turtlenecks, and leather everything to assuage the pain.
Another trend that shows no signs of checking out is plaid and Cher Horowitz and I couldn’t be more pleased. This season the print is taking new shape in 90s bold brights a la Versace and print clashing at Erdem. Basically, plaid is now acting as a neutral. Wear it with anything and you’ll be a fashion maverick. I am partial to the simplified take: matching sets, an assertive shoulder jacket with denim/leather trouser, or the blazer dress. Use your shoe choice to up the ante. Cowboy boots are the of-the-moment pick and add a bit of DGAF to your look. For the finishing touch? Gold hoops. I swear gold statement earrings and plaid go together like lamb and tuna fish (If you know, you know).
