Last weekend, I hit the Flatiron district of NYC to get inspired for some fall looks. I went to all my usual suspects on 5th Ave, like Club Monaco (aka “my happy place”), Anthropologie, Madewell, and the list goes on and on…well until 14th Street.
Out of all the stores I visited, the one that stood out and gets the golden star is Loft.
The color story was on point. The sweaters were cozy and plentiful. They even got bottoms right, ranging from Navy Blue Ponte Pants (yes!), to Burgundy double- knit pencil skirts. Also, I have to mention their variety of the ever important “3rd piece,” be-it, a bomber jacket, an anorak or an awesome autumnal (thank you Jessica Simpson –Jessica Simpson HSN: word of the day autumnal 1:30) multi-colored poncho.
Loft is great because they always have some kind of sale going on, and they always seem to capture the right trends.
I love this look with the pencil skirt and the quilted bomber. The pencil skirt is such a key silhouette this fall and Burgundy is one of this fall’s must have colors. You can never go wrong with a black and white stripe top, that ties this black quilted bomber jacket to the outfit ever so sweetly.
Finish this look with a nice patent leather black heel or some very on trend tasseled flat loafers and some golden jewels and you’re good to go.
If you can, head on over to a Loft store near you or go to Loft.com to get in the fall mood. Then you can cross cozy sweaters, pencil skirts, and amazing 3rd pieces off of your list.
