Shopping With Andra. Finally Falling For Fall

September 4, 2008 • Shopping


Andra Naylor for Second City Style Magazine

Because I’m a warm weather girl, I waited as long as I possibly
could to talk about trends for the upcoming season. But I can refrain
no longer. The extra-thick September fashion issues have piled in my
magazine rack and the department store catalogs have me starting my
autumn shopping list. It’s time to shop for fall fashion.

Fall fashion has always been about interesting multi-piece outfits,
but this season takes layering to a new level. Say goodbye to simple
one-piece looks like the sundresses you wore this summer and say hello to some serious mixing and matching.


Let’s start with texture. And lots of it. I’m thinking chunky knits
over silk ruffles upon wool cable tights tucked into leather patent
shoes. was thinking similarly with pleasantly contrasting soft wools accented with stiff leather knee-high boots, while Erin Fetherson played with weight – an airy frock over opaque tights and a heavy wool pea coat topper. Oscar de la Renta
also demonstrated tastefully-over-the-top (is that an oxymoron?) with
satin ensembles accessorized with leather and fur. Whatever you’re
thinking, keep layering it on.
