For me, fashion is serious business. So I put together an ultra sophisticated fall look with some of my favorite pieces from Warby Parker and Express. Then I headed to Williamsburg in Brooklyn for some more Autumn-inspired elegance.
Most of you probably haven’t seen me in glasses before because I’m a part time glasses wearer. I need them to drive and to see things far away. But even if I didn’t need them I would still totally head over to Warby Parker and pick out a pair because their styles are all so cute and classic. The frames that fit me best were Oliver in Whiskey Tortoise. I always feel ultra chic and smart when I wear them.
In the Northeast, transitioning your wardrobe into fall and eventually winter is no simple task. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve put all of my summer clothes neatly away only to come head to head with an 80 degree day in late October. So I’ve since learned to transition into fall slowly and stylishly.
This is a total rain-inspired post. After today’s downpour and being attacked this week by fall allergies that hadn’t existed before I moved to the city, I began to detest the new fall season. Then I remembered how much I’ve been looking forward to wearing boots and leggings around the city and forgot all about the rain or my allergies. Every socialite knows that when it comes to cold weather style, you can’t just have one pair of boots. There are different style for different outfits, weather, and sometimes days of the week. Here are four key styles you need to have one hand as the weather turns from August to Autumn:
1. Rain Boots: New York is a walking city. So when the rain is coming down and the streets are inches thick in water, you are going to need a good pair of rain boots to make it home. I will always have a soft place in my heart for the classic Burberry rain boots. Not only will they keep your feet and the lower parts of your outfit dry, they are also stylish enough to wear when it’s not raining.
2. Crazy Boots: Every girl needs a pair of boots in her wardrobe that stand out. I mean really stand out. They aren’t a neutral color or an everyday design. They don’t need to go with everything. They just need to be fun. Made with original vintage kilim rugs, Kiboots are all one of a kind.
3. Black Boots: Don’t be afraid to have more than one pair of black boots. No matter if you prefer wedges, heels, or flats, these are your go-to boots for the season.
4. Short Booties: Keep your wardrobe diverse by having a variety of tall and short boots. Booties look great with a dress or skirt.
