It’s (finally) starting to cool down a smidge over here in California, and if you pause long enough during dawn and dusk, you can smell fall in the air. That crisp sensation marking the changing of the guards, the fallen leaves of orange and yellow becoming more present, and the ever constant cawing of crows claiming their rightful season. Despite intensifying wildfires and constant global turmoil, the refreshing depth of autumn is here like a much needed balm.
Dressing for fall in California though, is another wild conundrum all of its own though. When it’s 80 degrees in the middle of the afternoon and 55 when the sun goes down, it’s incredibly hard to know what to wear let alone know what season it is. If you live on the west coast your favorite fall fashion word might be LAYERS. Good thing we’ve got you covered on all the best basics!
The Perfect V-Neck Tee, Archetype Tank and Easy V-Neck Long Sleeve are indeed perfect, simple tops for any style and everyday wear. Add some leggings of your favorite style (like the Dean Joggers or Basic Leggings), and one of our new cardigans, and you’re set for errands about town, yoga in the park or working from home in style.
And don’t forget to complete your outfit with one of our organic cotton masks or bandanas that are back in stock! Made from upcycled deadstock fabric, we’ve managed to stay stylish and eco-friendly amidst a pandemic.
Our 2020 fall line is filled with new simple, autumnal prints and lightweight (but warm!) fabrics. Like the organic, yarn dyed Herringbone Jacquard, (a nod to Kate’s east coast roots) our take on a classic tweed print. Our floral prints are back too, this season in the soft muted shades of Teaberry and Paris Night, reflective of airy autumn flowers. And as the days get shorter and cooler, we’ve also got new turtlenecks, sweater dresses, wrap coats, velour, and pashmina scarves to help you stay warm under.
The best tip for creating a closet that is effortless for transitioning season to season, is to have a solid staple collection of casual wear pieces. Simple pieces, that are easy to layer upon and to dress up for more formal occasions with a few extra touches, are the sure all for accessible and sustainable closets. Thankfully our entire line is exactly that. Cue the Cascade Cardi or the new Waffle Knit Snuggle Me Cardigan. The waffle knit, which is made of 95% Modal, is a thermal style fabric that is oh so cozy, textured and perfect for fall temps wherever in the world you are.
Fall fashion is, in essence, about being comfortable. It’s about embodying an authentic type of warmth reminiscent of that felt from a deep hug, a burning fireplace or a steaming hot cocoa on a crisp day. It should be simple, easy, and intentional as we move through the shifts both within and around us. Whatever you wear, may it envelope you with care both physically and soulfully. As the great Vivienne Westwood so aptly said it, “Buy less. Choose well. Make it last.”
