now that it's November, all i want to wear are oversized scarves, cozy coats/knits, and boots. my updated wardrobe list is mostly about adding a few dressier pieces and filling in some gaps in the f/w basics department.
a tailored topcoat // (wearing here) two words: darkly elegant.
long/lined olive parka // saw this and immediately knew it was going to be one of those H&M once-in-a-season gems. it didn't disappoint.
oversized wool wrap/scarf // just picked up this tartan plaid one from Muji – a lucky find while browsing for homewares...the armholes are pretty great! living in mine for the foreseeable future.
on the list:
a versatile year-round cocktail dress [on sale] // over the course of the year i've realized that one major hole in my wardrobe is a sophisticated, non-black evening cocktail dress. this DVF number was on my wishlist last year, then off, now back on (the fit was off last time, so i'm going to size up to a 4 and see how it goes). the fact that it's on sale in all colors right now makes it even better!
grey chunky-knit sweater // it's not fall without a properly cozy sweater. off-duty comfort.
a few black turtlenecks // another gap in my basics wardrobe: the simple, timeless blank canvas for f/w dressing up/down.
faux fur short coat // the genius of an inexpensive but expensive-looking faux fur: adds just enough 'statement' warmth to a simple or dressed-up look, especially for evening.
off the list:
coated black leggings // one of those pieces where i wishlist it periodically and then realize that i already have a close-enough equivalent. does this ever happen to you?
what are you feeling for fall? what's on your list?
