Hey guys, I'm super excited to share this post with you! I hope everyone had an awesome weekend. Now that summer is past us, it's time to prepare for what industry experts call the most important fashion season of the year, fall. Fall is the perfect opportunity for layers, bold colors, and a chance to experiment with different fabrics.
For this blog post I collaborated with local shop, Tigertree, to help kick off their fall collection. Owners Josh and Niki Quinn have been able to bring established brands like Ben Sherman and Levi's with up-and-coming lines such as Dear Creatures and Native Youth. What I love about their story is, at one point they were headed to LA when they stumbled and fell in love with Columbus. After falling in love with the Short North, they decided to stay in a community they felt they could have a bigger impact.
To the outfits:
As I mentioned, fall is a great time for layers and to mix and match fabrics - that's why I decided to layer a nepped viscose-wool blend knit sweater on a plain white dress shirt with cotton pants. This is a great outfit you can wear to work and transition into evening events with. To round out the outfit, I would recommend a pair of Chelsea boots to give the overall look a classic and sleek finish. My favorite part of this outfit is the flecked blue sweater with the ribbed finish.
For my second outfit, I went with a very casual full sleeve pocket pullover and skinny denim jeans. This dressed down look is perfect on a day filled with outdoor activities. The outfit is comfortable as it looks, but still is able to give a sense of design and style through simplicity. The pullover is extremely durable and can be used for layering or as a statement piece.
Well that's all for now, let me know if you would wear any of these outfits and what other fall style essentials I may have missed. Talk soon!!
