To school or not to school? That has been the question for many people this season. One thing that’s certain is that the prep-school staple, plaid, is back in full force. Use a swatch of it as an accent or drape from head to toe in a dress or jacket. Whether men’s or women’s, plaid is a perennial favorite.
When your love language is plaid, go all in. With beautiful draping, this wrap dress is smart for the office, patio cocktails, or a socially distanced night out paired with black leather boots. Rag & Bone Amber dress, $425, available at Clairvaux (Fairway Shops).
Rustic but Refined
As the weather cools, throw on a cozy shirt jacket like this one from Ulah. Layer the lightweight 100 percent cotton jacket with shirt styling for a casual look for Saturday farmers market runs or apple picking. The Normal Brand shirt jacket, $118, available at Ulah (Woodside Village).
Scarves are the ultimate fall accessory as we hold on to the last gasp of summer while looking forward to the bite of winter. What’s better than a scarf? A scarf in the softest baby alpaca hair. Grab this one in red and gold and cheer on the Chiefs in style. Plaid baby alpaca scarf, $49, available at the Peruvian Connection (Crestwood Shops).
