Likes: Fall 2012 Style!

If I could, these are the pieces I would add to my closet in preparation for the most glorious season ever.  But I can’t.  So let’s just gawk at them together:

FallLikes2012

Blouses

I think we all need to dust off our plaid shirts and give them some love because you can never look like you’re trying too hard in plaid.  Also they look lovely layered under sweaters.  //  Silky, drapey tops.  You know how you inhale all that food during autumn because your body’s preparing to hibernate (just me?)?  These tops are the solution to the fall food baby, in all its glory.

Skirts & Dresses

This is what I’m thinking, you guys.  Flowy (again) printed dresses/skirts in neutral colors.  Print clashing is no loner considered busy if the undertones match or compliment one another.  Also the muted tones of both the skirt and dress prevent them from looking too girly.  Fall is all about androgyny (I’m pretty sure it’s in the Constitution).

Pants

Corduroy is back with a vengeance.  It also comes in much more flattering shapes than that pair of overalls I had when I was probably way too old to be wearing corduroy overalls…  It’s also available in a lot of fun colors, but I would stick with the neutrals like this rich tan or a navy.  It’s more likely to retain its style come next season.  //  So waxed denim is still a thing.  And now that more people know what it is, you’re less likely to get the weird Are-You-Wearing-Pleather? looks from people.  Also, ever since seeing this photo floating around, I’m convinced the way to go in terms of color is oxblood.  Also, oxblood is the most violently awesome color name ever.

Sweaters

 Norwegian-inspired sweaters are the shit.  No further explanation needed.  //  A good, striped, V-neck sweater is never a bad thing.  In my mind, a plaid or chambray collar peeking out of this particular sweater would look quite nice. 

Basically, if fall had a mascot it would be a giant sweater.  So buy lots of them and wear them for me because Los Angeles is never getting below 90 degrees again, I’ve decided.

Shoes

The smoking shoe is a dumb name, I know you’ve been thinking it.  However, it’s a less-cutesy alternative to the ballet flat that’s obviously classier than your ‘ol Chucks.  Plus you must band together with me and make sure leopard print never goes out of style again.  //  I don’t honestly know what to call these bandage-type heels (and trust me I’ve googled various incarnations of that phrase and have yet to find the actual name), but I sort of wish they were in my life.  They’re chunky and substantial, so even though they’re technically sandals, I think they’d fit in perfectly with most fall outfits (especially worn with socks or tights, right? Or am I crazy?).

Scarves

This scarf is a map of London!  I may be watching far too many BBC shows at the moment, but YOU NEED THIS SCARF.  Also, oxblood around the edges.  You know how I feel about oxblood.

Blazers

So J. Crew and Tory Burch and everyone else in the Prepster Brigade (no hatin’) have been pushing the striped blazer on me all spring and summer.  But only now that it’s after Labor Day and the white maybe feels ever-so-slightly rebellious am I thinking this may just become a fall staple.
