These are the things I want to add to my fall wardrobe.
A classic beret worn just so.
UPDATE: I literally bought a raspberry beret in a secondhand store.
A skinny silk scarf to add a little color and interest to my outfits. Instead of buying a new scarf, I recommend just buying a vintage men’s necktie and just wrapping it around your neck, like so. Maybe alter the necktie by adding a little fringe as seen below.
I’m interested in these Everlane pants. They look like great everyday basics.
This fall I want to splurge on socks. And since I splurge on basically nothing this is really saying something. They have to be just right. These two below fit the bill. The pink socks on the left say – “My favorite salad is wine.” The photo is from an adorable Instagram account called ChinaTownPretty. The account was created to celebrate the street style of seniors living (and grocery shopping) in SF Chinatown. You should definitely follow. The photo below on the right is from The Sartorialist. It is from the Fall 2011 Dries Van Noten runway show. These pairs of socks inspire me to buy socks that add a little color or pattern and humor to my wardrobe. Just something that would make yourself or someone else smile when you sit down and cross your legs.
I need to wear comfortable shoes that I can walk in. I want a pair as seen in the image below on the right. I can’t find them anywhere. Zappos offers a couple of pairs that are kinda cool. I’ll probably keep looking.
What are you thinking of adding to your fall wardrobe?
If ever there was a runway show to inspire upcycling — this is it.
Mark my words — that basketweave effect on the jeans will be a street style trend.
Apparently, Victor & Rolf created this “Dickensian vagabond vibe” by upcycling their previous collections. I don’t know about you, but I am inspired to create a rag rug dress. It would be the perfect thing to wear to an art opening. Minus the chimney sweeper hat.
