Last month, I had the pleasure of hosting one of my girlfriends from Miami while she was in town modeling for the Bridal Expo. Jenn was sweet enough to shoot some looks for GingerSnaps, including the fall look I am sharing today.
This Fall OOTD is built around a gorgeous fur-trimmed vest by BCBG. This look is one of my go-to looks for fall; it’s super stylish, comfortable, and has just the right amount of warmth. I always find the fluctuating temperatures of early Fall difficult to gauge. There’s nothing worse than dressing in too many layers and being stuck, sweating on the subway. Vests and felt hats are a great way to add a little bit of warmth, without getting carried away. Jenns’ Fall OOTD also includes another of my favorite ways to add a touch of warmth in the early fall: a fedora. If you haven’t already, a fedora is a great way to add style and warmth to any fall outfit.
Both my shirt and leather leggings are by Helmut Lang. I live in these leather leggings in the gal and winter; Helmut Lang makes the perfect fit for tall girls like me and Jennifer. The necklace I am wearing brings all of the colors in the rest of the outfit together. It is hand-carved from stone and is one of the most precious things I own. A gift from a former boyfriend of mine from Colombia, this necklace was found while his family was excavating into the side of a mountain to build thier home in Bogota. There is no telling how old it is, but they believe it to be from the native tribes that lived in those mountains hundred of years ago. Talk about history!
The last of my favorite pieces in this outfit are the sweater boots. I love knee-high boots, but it is often difficult to find a pair that fits my big foot but also forms to skinny legs. Dolce and Gabbana came up with the perfect solution a few seasons ago with this boot that has a stretchy sweater/sock material instead leather, making it a one-size-fits-all knee-high boot– brilliant!
