It’s time to confess: anyone who really adores clothing hates the summer and lives for fall. We know you’ve been reading the pre-fall reports and just praying for that first chilly day so you can bundle up, in that wool frock, slip on those Prada shoes and carry that huge black leather bag that just wouldn’t due in the middle of July. But if your inspiration has gotten lost in the haze and humidity, take a peek at these top 5 pieces you can pick up before the September rush starts.
TAKE A MESSAGE
Yves Saint Laurent’s Besace Messenger Bag $1895, is a nice departure from last year’s Downtown bag. It says you’ve got somewhere important to goâ€”fast.
LITTLE BLACK DRESS
Fendi’s Petal Trimmed Dress $3530, is a great investment. It offers a feminine interpretation of this seasons sleek, modern look without looking too harsh or frilly.
THE BETTER SWEATER
Sure you could buy a basic black cardigan from just about anywhere this season but why not try something a little different. Miu Miu’s gray cardigan $670, is a great example of the homme-femme trend with its classic boyfriend style and unexpected bow to seal the deal.
Guiseppe Zanotti’s Crisscross Booties $695, will be a worthwhile purchase for fall. The cutout stiletto style bootie is the perfect combination of the season’s top four trends.
EYES WIDE OPEN
Vivienne Westwood’s Anglomania classic wool pants $640, are perfect for a 70’s Love Story re-enactment or just a day when skinny pants seem like they’re too much of a hipster hangover.
