It’s October in New York and with the turning of leaves there is a refreshing shift in style. For me, there is nothing better than a fresh start, a new season calls for an all important updated wardrobe and with that the exciting promise to reinvent. I see it as a clean slate to refresh my style, banishing the repetitive summer wears of barely there basics, and replacing them with rich fabrics and generously proportioned silhouettes. There is no doubt about it the hero of this season is knitwear. This one from Zara is a loud echo of the Celine knit-suit that stormed the runway and I couldn’t be more obsessed with the long hand covering sleeves and slashed side slits. I’m wearing it here with some baggy cropped trousers, they make a nice change to the usual cigarette shape I go for, adding a much needed touch of volume, a look I’ll be adopting in every way conceivable this fall. As for the loafers (Porter magazine is calling this manish chunky flat the ‘new loafer shape’ to covet) trust Zara to come up with a High Street equivalent of the ubiquitous Marni shoe. When I saw them online I knew they needed to be part of my new season refresh and judging from the insane response on Instagram, you all couldn’t agree more.
And speaking of fresh starts, I shared some exciting news today on Instagram that I have found a job in fashion e-commerce in New York. It’s a very similar role to what I was doing at Selfridges in London so I’m feeling very excited to finally get back on the career ladder! I’m going to apologise in advance for the sporadic posting on the blog that is bound to follow as I lead a normal 9 to 5 but I promise I have every intention to continue The Wears as I spent so much time building it and really love sharing my style inspirations with everyone. Thank you to everyone for reading and following my New York adventure so far x
