It’s that time of year again; fall is in the air! Don’t let your spirits drop along with the temperatures, though. Oak Street has just what you need to heat your look up on the upcoming cooler days. Look fabulous while flaunting these five fantastic trends that have been handpicked to help
you keep warm and look cool all season long.
Frye has boatloads of beautiful boots in sizes, colors, and styles to suit every shoe-lover in Chicago! However, it’s their chukka boots that are guaranteed to help you stay on trend and beat the bulk this season. Their height is just right to keep you looking long and lean, without cutting you off at the knees. Ladies should look for the Ruby Chukkas or the Kendall Chukkas. Both options feature a lace-up style and a classic and timeless look. Meanwhile, men should seek out Frye’s Jack Monk Chukkas or Phillip Lug Wingtip Chukkas for their daring details and unique ability to accent any outfit.
Hoodies and sweat shirts have long been considered a sacred staple of chilly fall nights for their comfort and casual appeal. However, who says that sweats must come in shirt form? And who decided that they need to be baggy and boring? Barney’s is out to change these old stereotypes with sweats that will make you stand out. The Ladies’ R13 Sweatshirt Dress and the Men’s NLST Cargo Drop-Rise Sweatpants from Barneys are both stylish options that will elevate your casual lounge style.
Belts might seem like benign accessories you can never go wrong on, but why not use them to their fullest advantage? Fall is all about layering, so use belts with big textures and bold colors to take your look over the top. Women should try the B-low the Belt Leather Ribbon Belt at Scoop, and men should go for the Paul Stuart Ostrich Belt for something that’s a little out of the ordinary but still a great fit for the office.
Luxe Lamb Leather
Everyone knows that leather is a suitable staple for crisp fall weather. It keeps the wearer warm and dry, and it looks luxurious and sleek. And as if it wasn’t edgy enough, Vince has taken it over the top with new silhouettes and shapes. Men can master the trend on weekends with the new Leather Moto Jogger pants, which feature zippered ankles for easy styling with a variety of shoes. Meanwhile, women can test it out tastefully at the office with the sleek and sexy Belted Leather Dress with Ponte Panel.
Though you might soon be lamenting the loss of your summer wardrobe, you should be cheered by the fact that scarf season is coming. Soon, there will be a slight chill in the air that will allow you to gracefully drape that beautiful, outfit-making accessory across any outfit.
