Here, in the North-East, the weather has yet to fully embrace Fall. Daytime temperatures oscillate between high 70s to mid 80s while evenings-nights are nearly 10-15 degrees cooler.
This not-quite-Fall-weather poses a challenge when it comes to picking what to wear all day. Key to dressing for this transitional weather is layering and selecting items that are comfortable, stylish and on-trend.
I rounded up a few essentials to making this daunting task simple and fun.
Chequered jackets and natty wide-lapelled jackets sported by 1950’s news anchors look fresh again. Yes, plaid is cool again. Pair a basic striped cotton top, a sheer button-down or an asymmetric tee with skinny cropped leggings in leather-like texture. Layer with a graphic scarf and sexy heels, like these stappy cage sandals with embellished studs to give your off-duty looks a hint of attitude. My go-to bag these days is a masculine steampunk leather satchel large enough for my 17″ mbpro and other gadgets and holds a small clutch for after-work socials. When it comes to jewelry, less is more for me, so I tend to wear more rings. This Kate Spade Stepping Stone ring makes a subtle statement while being the perfect work-night accessory.
