Fall tweak

Do you ever get fashion fatigue? Here we are mid November, Fall clothes have been in the stores since August, and I am not ready to invest whole-heartedly in Resort pieces yet. Solution? A tweak– an item that becomes a game-changer in your wardrobe and doesn’t break the bank. The denim shirt from J.Crew is my answer. Thrown over the divine Balmain pants above (not a tweak at $6,000.) or paired with a black leather skirt (or any great piece you already have), and voila, your outfit is updated.

  • Exactly how I’ve been feeling, although on the west coast we don’t really do resort wear ~ so a really long time before I’m ready to commit to a new season. I too needed a “tweak” and ordered the Rag and Bone hammered gold booties. I’ll see how if I like them, and they could be just the thing? I always have denim shirts from J.Crew, but yes, they’re a game changer.

  • I was thinking about my J. Crew denim shirt as I was driving around this morning and how I had let it lapse out of rotation since late summer. I must rummage around and see what I can pair it with. Alas no Balmain pants in my closet but maybe with my Prada “statement skirt” that is old as the hills and still hanging in.

  • I have that shirt and really like it, unfortunately, nobody else seems to like it on me :-(. Maybe because I live in the west and people don’t seem to get it as fashion, they just think “cowboy”….?
