Falling For School
The further we get into fall - the more nostalgic we get about that first day of school.
Sentimental to the traditional school girl look, we find ourselves playing with short length skirts, patterned jackets and tall socks with our knees still exposed. With warm shades of nature and the soft feel of wool, this fall embraces a more romantic side of school days. As the trees change colors with the shift in weather, the apparel this season follows suit: Burgundy, browns, reds, grey and cream compliment each other with a plethora of fabric types. Chunky knits bundled under long sleeved jackets play with textures and patterns, looking effortlessly charming and subtly alluring while keeping warm on way to winter.
The naturally styled hair also compliments the earthy nature of this season as you wrap a scarf around yourself to feel cozy against the chilly winds. Find comfort in yourself through various lengths of layers by mixing long jackets with short bottoms or long pants with a high waisted tweed jacket show. This mélange of romantic fall colors and school helps embrace our body shapes with a natural and soft look.
