Every time summer comes to an end, I fluctuate between sadness about the warm weather and the anticipation of wearing my cool rib knitwear when the temperature drops. My love of fall fashion feels like betraying my favorite time of year, but I really appreciate the spectacle that takes place on the streets of New York when fall sets in.
Having to protect ourselves from the cold forces us to think more about the layers we wear, and that’s perhaps the most exciting thing about transitioning to cooler weather. One style that I was particularly excited about is the ALC Eleanor Cardigan ($ 395). I was so excited when I first discovered it, and when it came in the mail last month, I recently took it on a trip to California (of all places).
My philosophy this season is to do more with less, to collect some durable, well-made pieces that I will cherish for a long time. While this top is a luxury, it more than makes up for its portability and versatility. The soft feel and the sultry yet relaxed fit make it comfortable to wear, while the sophisticated look is basically a compliment magnet.
When paired with the matching Logan Rib Knit Pants ($ 395), it’s the ultimate fall ensemble. The Los Angeles-based brand has perfected the art of making one-offs that I can’t stop raving about, and while you could wear both pieces individually, you just might not want to.
This fall, consider investing in high quality, durable pieces that will make you look and feel great.
