It’s that time of the year again.Tis’ the season of hauling enormous September issues to read on the subway , trying on decadently soft camel coats even though the weather won’t be cold enough until November anyway and ingurgitating anything with a hint of pumpkin spice. Ok so maybe I am a tad early , but since we are almost the first of September , I figured I would just elaborate on what I would want to be wearing this fall now. And that’s anything plaid and/or that makes me look anything remotely similar to Daria Werbowy. Although I am not sure if I have one rebellious/cool/Daria fiber in my body , maybe I can scrounge up enough to curate the ideal Saint-Laurent grungy Parisienne aesthetic (maybe). Here’s a little inspiration straight from the good people at French , American , UK Vogue and a little bit of Zara and Saint-Laurent.
And pants . And jackets. And sheer plaid. So you probably know already from previous posts that I am not a super colorful dresser. Neutrals and shades are kind of my thing. Recently I was browsing on style.com and I kind of re-fell in love with Dries Van Noten’s SS 2012 collection. At first glance I was thinking “no thank you Dries”. But these past weeks of cold weather sort of , well , warmed me up to the idea . Since I am so predictable , I tend to appreiate darker plaids better. For shirts , I need them to be dark and oversize , the plaid shirt from J. Lindberg is exactly what I need. Also , I really like a sheer plaid chemise if I felt a little daring and wanted to wear plaid pants aswell. Having a different texture for one of the pieces of the same print in an outfit is a good way to mix prints without looking overdone.
