Patterns and Plaids For Fall

Remember when I was telling you all the checks, plaids and criss crosses all over the runways at New York Fashion Week? To my great delight, the trend has carried through to Fall, and I’ve been seeing lots of the oversized graphic patterns on cozy coats and sweaters. I particularly love the soft tones of this wool coat, so I styled up an outfit around the baby blue theme, picking cream front-pleat pants and a dove grey sweater to finish off the look. This outfit turned out to be a winner – it’s formal enough for meetings but comfortable too!

Here’s a style tip to bookmark: prep for unpredictable Fall weather by layering. This doesn’t just mean bundling up til you look like Joey from Friends, that time he wore all of Chandlers clothes! But thin layers – like this chambray shirt – look great underneath a simple sweater, and be sure to show a hint of what’s going on underneath: I like my collar, cuffs and sometimes my hem to peek out from under the next layer.
