Three hardy styles for fall plus what’s trending in drinks.
Fall is a good time to feel and look relaxed. School’s back in, traffic ramps up and the market’s summer slumber is over, so your life is busy enough as it is without worrying about dressing to the nines. “Layering is a great way to transition to fall. Try a lightweight knit under a jacket. It will work well over a shirt and tie combination and will also look great when you take your jacket off,” says Shannon Stewart, Harry Rosen’s head buyer. “When coordinating a fall sport jacket or blazer take a cue from the fabric. A soft flannel five pocket pant pairs perfectly with a textured wool cashmere jacket for that rich fall look.” Here are three put-together looks.
Be smooth This Ermenegildo Zegna navy sport jacket features five pockets and a subtle bird’s eye texture, nicely showing off the Italian label’s “considered” approach that is perfect for the
office or a date when combined with a vested cardigan ($650), dress shirt ($395),
flannel five-pocket pants ($475) and a Brunello Cucinelli pocket square ($185).
Look sharp This Armani Collezioni sweaterjacket ($1,195) shows off the Italian label’s modern approach with a sleek and lustrous velvet design and distinctive Mandarin collar. Add a dress shirt ($275) and fitted pair of jeans ($325) and you’re ready to be just about anywhere. Stewart says a soft constructed sweater jacket is the must-have for the season because it offers “the pulled-together look of a structured tailored jacket with the comfort of a cardigan sweater. You can go business casual with this jacket or pair with jeans on the weekend.”
Get rough It’s the weekend so it’s time to cut loose and be ready for anything, something that is made easier with this layered Polo Ralph Lauren ensemble comprised of a jacket ($625), sweater ($185), shirt ($165) and a modern take on classic jeans ($198).
