We can’t vouch for everyone, but increasingly we’re staring out the window looking at the gray skies and rain wondering where the summer went. It felt so easy to roll out of bed and find inspiration to pull together a cool, creative, statement-making look without thinking twice when the weather was on our side, but right now just getting out of bed is a mission.
To inject some enthusiasm into your morning (or, let’s face it, midday) closet dilemmas, we’ve pulled together some of the best fall fashion we’ve seen so far this year to prove to you that September and beyond isn’t all doom and gloom. For starters, it looks like the blogosphere has been paying close attention to their Pantone color charts, with no shortage of bright reds and luxurious shades of sage, mustard and gray blending together to set a sumptuous tone to this season’s look book.
Plaid has absolutely dominated the scene lately, so whether you plan to slip on a Prince of Wales blazer or a high-waisted checked pant make sure you incorporate this classic pattern into your closet. Power pantsuits are still going strong as a staple look, but there are several camps divided: the head-to-toe, ‘80s-style plaid ensemble, the I-still-support-Hillary block-colored two-piece and the all-eyes-on-me printed pajama suit.
With the weather not quite decided yet, the fashion set are still making the most of their sunnies, in particular retro cat-eye styles and throwback aviator frames. While we’re still seeing a fair number of elegant slingbacks and mules, most of the in-crowd appear to have switched out their sandals for sturdy designer sneakers and statement booties.
