An Elegant Transition into Autumn
Exactly during this time each year, I begin to embrace a transition for my favorite division of the year, autumn. With the official equinox date of September 22nd, you’ll find the evenings coming earlier and temperatures becoming considerably cooler. What is it about the Northern hemisphere transition that conjures such excitement? Perhaps, it’s the opportunity to apply a style fundamental I call the “Layering Concept”. A method utilizing a mixture of vintage finds and modern staples, this editorial is in the current issue of Today’s Vintage Magazine.
For this transitional change in between seasons can only be made with a collection of wool felt bespoke millinery designs, fall prints that consist of leaves, abstract floral motifs in hues of browns, burnt orange, and muted neutrals. I find myself constantly perusing a variety of fabric choices ranging from boucle wools, tweed, and knit Ponte. These materials hold warmth and comfort as temperatures decline. For a daytime ensemble while consulting with prospects as well as current clientele, a light wool cowl-neck dress styled with a chic rope belt keeps my demure Franciscan style intact. I always find myself pairing (many, if not all) of my outfits with millinery.
Autumn is absolutely the right time to channel your inner Brigitte Bardot with a floppy felt millinery design by Lady Sharma Hats, a luxury milliner based in the United Kingdom. From a combination of authentic vintage accouterments I can’t help, but to anticipate the shifting weather that simply translates an air of elegance.
