Fall Fashion Is in the Air – Wool Fabric

Fall is coming, fall is coming! Sure, it’s just the beginning of September, and most of the country will be basking in warm weather well into next month, but this is precisely the time of year I start aching for cooler days. Why? I crave layering up in cozy clothes, I want to bust out my favorite boots, and really, how many times can I keep wearing the same sundresses? Excitingly, New York Fashion Week is around the corner, which signifies new trends and new excuses to start plotting a wardrobe revival.

Luckily, you and I can makeover our closets with one single piece: a new coat. Lightweight or heavy duty, this staple can easily infuse chic sophistication into everyday ensembles. And hey, when you’ve got the skills (and some quality wool fabric!) you can make one inspired by the latest high-end designs at a fraction of the price.

In my pre-season anticipation I picked out a few inspiring wool coats.

Want to feel you stepped out of the Vogue offices? Gorgeous neutrals with luxe textures will do the trick! Just take a peek at Joseph’s belted robe coat or this heather gray topper from Theysken’s Theory.
