FALL OUTERWEAR GETS PLAID
By Caroline Ferry, October 12, 2018
Even if you're a hot-weather stan and mostly live for sandy toes and ice cream, there's something kinda glorious about this in-betweeny fall weather. Firstly because you’d be hard pressed to find a more healthy and cost-effective pastime than kicking your way through heaps of red leaves in the park. Secondly because the season’s layerable treasures breathe a whole new lease of life into your silky summer styles.
Take this dreamy combo snapped at London Fashion Week last month. A nightgown-style maxi dress feels right at home in the new season thanks to the addition of a very cozy tartan jacket. Keeping the rest of the accessories very much FW, the matching brown leather clutch, punky belt and western-style shoe situation pulls it all together nicely.
Want to try it out? Too right, you absolutely should. Bring your favourite slinky separates — be it a midi skirt or culottes — right into fall with you by engaging those two clever styling tricks. First up is your outerwear — jacket, sweater or coat, just make it plaid. And second of all the accessories — keep them matching in print (tartan) or in punkiness (chunky boots) and you’re onto a winner.
