Wow, is it the middle of October already? Guess that explains the chilliness! Fall isn’t holding back and if the weather’s giving any indication, looks like we can be expecting more cool weather. Here are a few ways we want to help you get ready for the colder months ahead.
Fall's Here, Time To Upgrade Your Sweaters?
A quintessential wardrobe choice for the Fall weather are knits, make sure you have the right pieces.
Roberto Collina specializes in only one thing and that’s knitwear. With the temperature dropping it’s time to roll out the knits. This season, Roberto Collina has prepared a line up of knits that will suit different occasions. Whether you need a more casual look to the office or something to lounge around in, Collina has all your bases covered.
1. THE HIGH COLLAR ZIP CARDIGAN
Finding a layering piece in Fall requires both a thickness in material and interesting pattern. Collina takes inspiration from the Aran knits and adds their own bit of waffling. Wear this to the office in place of your sport jacket for a cozy outfit but still professional looking.
2. THE KNIT BOMBER
Whether it’s watching your kids/grandkids kick off their Fall sports or going for a walk to admire the changing colour of leaves, the season has you in cooler settings. No one says you can’t be both cozy and look classy doing your Fall activities. Ditch your regular hoodie or sweatshirt for a more refined casual look with the knit bomber.
3. THE CHUNKY TURTLENECK
We’ve been a big proponent of turtlenecks and Roberto Collina offers some great options this season. Turn to the chunky turtleneck for a warm layering option or for a good looking stand alone piece. Whether it’s under a sport jacket at the office or going out for Friday date night, the turtleneck is both stylish and comfortable.
How's Your Fall Outerwear Looking?
Does it look like you’re ready for Fall or are you going to be a little chilly if you don’t make any additions. Here are 3 suggestions to help ensure you have the right outerwear for your needs.
1. Private White V.C. – The Deluxe Wax Jacket
Hailing from Manchester, England, Private White V.C. is no stranger to chilly fall weather. Crafted from the finest UK woven eight ounce waxed cotton, the level of cloth, trim and materials are a reflection of the level of garment needed to withstand the British weather. This is a stylish British inspired jacket that will hold up to the rain, wind and colder climate we’re expecting.
2. John Varvatos – Black Sherpa Trucker Jacket
The denim trucker jacket is an outerwear piece that never goes out of style. By adding a sherpa lining, John Varvatos immediately makes your casual look a lot cozier. For those who want to look great without being too loud, the black on black works much better than the cream on navy which is typical of most sherpa lined truckers.
3. Inis Meáin – Donegal Poet Sweater
We’ll concede, this isn’t an outerwear piece like the initial question indicated. However, how could we not mention this piece for your consideration? Coming from the Aran Islands, Inis Meáin knows a thing or two about chilly weather. This sweater is made of a thick wool-cashmere blend and features an elongated body that works well for an appearance like a topcoat.
