During those first two weeks of fall, the sun sends down its last faint beams to linger around the deciduous city trees and the temperature is still befitting to those who brave the light autumn breeze by layering lightweight materials. Cayenne, copper, burgundy and mahogany are all ingredients to these city- chic casual ensembles, all whirled through an autumn rainbow of saturated earth colors. Inhaling that soft loamy air rendered damp on the concrete streets, this effortless everyday style is perfect for a walk down town featuring a light knit cardigan nonchalantly layered over a singlet for him, flanked by a classic pallazzo pant and long-sleeved crop top for her. Before winter comes, enjoy the moderate weather and beautiful scenery with trees skirted by golden rust pools of foliage. It’s only a matter of weeks before the cold will pose the challenge to compromise the balance between style and practicality. Unless you are planning a sweet escape to a tropical destination!
As we neareth the end of May, each day paints the sky either blue or gray, to match the petrichor fray. Our office to London gig-goer ensembles subsume a hint of urban Brit sophistication. Never a fad, is the timeless grey on blue on grey-blue glen plaid for him, flanked by a black and white glen plaid for her paired with distressed boyfriend jeans. Finally, to soften the tread of our trotter, classic Chucks do the trick since 1921.
With the mauve ivy backdrop streaked with the sparse sun rays, the whimsical surroundings certainly do our ‘haute hippie’ ensembles justice. Ubiquitous in high street fashion, hippie chique with just a hint of boho, or vice versa. An ensemble that bottles bohemia? It’s a fashion rhapsody we shall surely revisit with pleasure.
