What I’m Buying for Fall
While it’s still the height of summer, I always try to stock up for the upcoming season at least a month before I think I need to–it’s the best time to find timeless items I love at better prices! After a year of editing my closet, I have a really clear sense of the gaps in my wardrobe. Here’s what I’m missing, and what I’m buying for the fall.
Camel sweater–a great transitional neutral for that awkward post-Labor-Day-but-still-super-warm period we get in New York.
An oversized cardigan–inspired by both Emilie Hawtin’s recent essay for Drake’s, and the Molly Moorkamp cardigan that got away, I’m dying for a cozy oversized cardigan with a shawl collar. Molly, please bring back the Annette! (In the meantime, this one looks really nice!)
Boots–I have a great pair of brown duBarry boots, and a black pair from Sézane, but I’d love something elegant and chic in a chestnut leather.
A knee-length wool coat–I have a fantastic full-length overcoat from Brooks Brothers in the 80s–the same one Audrey Rouget wears in Metropolitan–that was my mother’s (also seen here). I love it, and wear it often, but it’s so heavy. I have an old peacoat from Benetton that I wore throughout high school, but what I’d really love is a knee- or mid-length camel coat–warm enough to wear when it’s too cold for my Barbour, but not too heavy.
Black and navy trousers–I have a great pair of cotton trousers from Brooks Brothers that I love, but I’d love a new pair of slim wool pants in both navy and black. I’m considering these, but let me know if you have a good pair!
