Falling Into Autumn

True, it is a bit sad to see summer end. If you live in a climate where people are unimpressed with the threat of blizzards, the fading of summer sun can be a bit depressing. But before you throw on the snow tires, there is the beautiful little in-between time of autumn to look forward to. The weather is still decent, the sun is still shining, and instead of cook-outs and the beach you have cozy roasts and apple picking. Plus, you get to reveal all of the deliciously stylish new finds you have collected for your fall wardrobe. Soft new sweaters, supple leather boots- there really isn’t much to complain about. So pack away the bathing suits, but don’t dust off your snowsuit just yet. Take a little time to enjoy the slight chill in the air and the brightly colored leaves. Herewith are some fall finds to inspire you this autumn.

  • Draper Trench Coat

    Draper-trench-coat

    With fall knock-knock-knocking on summer’s door, it’s time to start busting out the lightweight jackets. Brooklyn Industries has done a brilliant job of updating the perennial autumn classic, the trench coat. The jaunty collar and belt ratchet up the style on what could easily be ho-hum outerwear, as do the stellar little details like epaulets and tortoise-tone buttons. And the color! This bold shade of red is what really sets this trench apart from a sea of humdrum olive and navy blahs.
