Early October ushers in a crisp and cozy earthy mood — bright azure blue skies and long golden shadows ask us to hold on to those glorious days of Indian summer, while leaves start to fall and crack under our feet in brilliant orange, scarlet, caramels and toffee hues. The weather still draws us indoors and out, but with necessary fashion shifts to better enjoy a cup of cider with friends or dining outside on a patio, or a sporting event, a brisk walk, or shuttling between home and office. Wherever Fall 2020 takes you — let’s dress for it!
Your basic denim and cotton tee pairing may be instantly transitioned to an effortless out-and-about stylish look when layered with a cozy cashmere or lightweight cashmere-cotton blend sweatshirt or cardigan. Or change out that denim for an easy jogger, in pleather or cotton French terry. Tone it up or down with monochromatic or a pop of bold color. The rich hues of this season’s easy stretch plaids give an instant fall look in slim legs or culotte styles and all are stunning with cozy sweaters.
Out when there’s a bit more of a chill early in the morning or after the sun sets? This is the time of year when we get to add our stylish blazers in leather or a knitted plaid. Light puffers and vests — easy, instant seasonal dressing!
One absolute must-have for the transition from summer to fall is a scarf (or two, or three!) — in cotton, cashmere or silk — whatever to your liking. Scarves add instant polish and ultra-chicness with their touch of a luscious hue, a contrasting pattern or a monochromatic texture. How does one wear a scarf, you ask? Fold into a diagonal and tie with a knot to the side or back — or wear it more like a neckerchief for extra color play. Going for ultra-modern and retro chic? Fold into a triangle and instead of tying a knot under the chin, simply crisscross the loose ends, bring them around your neck and tie the knot in the back. Oh so simple, oh so elegant, oh so Jackie O! Scarves (and their big sister, the wrap) will take you from work to play, casual to polished, and transition your wardrobe effortlessly and fashionably season after season. The ultimate in style and comfort — the versatile scarf!
Another ideal way to change up a look in a snap — slip on a sneaker or a closed-toe shoe and kick Fall 2020 into stylish gear! These aren’t your mother’s slip-ons — not when it’s pattern and color and detailing like VANELi’s Opie with suede, leather and reptile. This ultra-lightweight slip-on sneaker is oh-so-comfortable for walking or running around town.
We can not hide why we love this military-inspired, camo-print, calf hair Albion loafer — with its rounded toe, textured feel, rolled leather topline and rich bold colors. Loafers, slip-ons, sneakers, mules, ankle boots — all create cozy comfort, style and ease in a single, stylish step!
Yes, it’s officially fall — and time to fall in love again and again with Fall 2020 fashion the Jophiel Way!
