It’s time to pack up all our summer mini dresses and swimwear and get out our coats and boots for fall. I know, I’m sad about it too, but there’s always an exciting energy in the air that comes when the seasons change. Autumn feels like the beginning of something new. For those of us in New York City, it’s that time of year when everyone who has retreated to their summer homes returns to the city and long vacations come to an end and the city is back in full swing.
The kids are going back to school, students are moving into dorms, and it’s chilly enough to wrap yourself in a chic sweater and sit in the West Village while tasting wine with friends. And for those of us who work in fashion, this is of course the start of fashion month, starting with New York Fashion Week. There’s just something about New York in the fall, from the changing leaves in Central Park to my favorite restaurants adding hot toddies to their cocktail menus. Deep down I’m a summer girl, but fall comes second. If I’m honest, I’m willing to trade my cute summer dresses for cashmere sweaters and suede boots. As you may have guessed, I’ve been planning my cozy looks left and right, and five outfit formulas stood out to me as no-brainer ensembles that I’ll be wearing all season long.
