If there is one thing I’m excited about for this upcoming fall season, it’s the abundance of luxe fabrics coming out. From the soft velvets, to the smooth satins, and the sheen of the silks, the textures are a lot more romantic than the cotton and linens I’ve been wearing all summer long. Since the season hasn’t officially started, I’m still wearing most of my lightweight pieces, but mixing in those fabrics that add a touch of luxe.
These silk pants from J.Crew were one of the first pieces I bought this season. The muted dusty rose shade is one of my favorite colors, especially going into cooler months. Unlike other silk pants I have, these are a bit more structured and heavier in fabric (but not stiff), similar to a suit. They also come in a few other colors like cream, navy and green.
And speaking of textures, I couldn’t resist these leopard loafers that J.Crew just came out with. I love that the undertone and details are chocolate brown instead of black, making them softer to pair with all of the lighter shades I wear. When it comes to putting together an outfit, I really like mixing the fabrics and textures, so to top of this look, I added my straw bag. I know some of you were asking if I would wear all of my wicker and straw totes into fall and the answer is yes. I’m already envisioning lots of knit sweaters and denim paired with them.
