Okay, I’m going to say it — I think it’s finally autumn here in New York. I just checked the weather forecast and it looks like it will not be above 69º for the next week (knock on wood!) and that means autumn to me. I mean, it’s about time, right? October is almost over!
Another thing that just screams autumn for me is jewel tones. Burnt oranges, deep burgundies, lush emeralds, and silky onyxes are all I want to see and wear this time of year. I love how they can seamlessly transition from lovely day pieces into sultry date-night outfits, like the ensemble Krystal pulled together here, featuring this stunning Le Fou Wilfred dress from Aritzia. The color is so autumnal, and yet can be worn throughout the holiday season (Thanksgiving dinner, anyone?), and the richness of the fabric shines as the nights get longer.
So, for your next date night (might I suggest the cozy Waverly Inn?), slip into something a little more dazzling (this gorgeous satin midi, perhaps?) to celebrate the change of seasons. I know I will! Enjoy 🙂
