Pale for Fall

As I was loading items into the KiC shop this morning, up popped this fresh fall look on Net-a-Porter. I want every piece, especially the long cable-knit sweater and pale boots. To quote my old friend Polly Mellen, “divine”!

  • Gorgeous! I wish I was slim enough to carry it off….(!)

  • I have had a lifelong love of the cream cable knit sweater!! I have tried many, but still haven’t found my “true love” ….perhaps this one will be it!!!

  • The jumper (sweater) is wonderful. The boots….I’m just not sure. Where did her ankles go?
    Maybe I’m just not fashion-forward enough.

  • Love the look, but to wear that one in particular, I think you have to be tall, thin and blonde! None of which am I!

    The boots, however, are not my favorite – I don’t care for that style with the extra piece that comes down over the foot. I like to see ankles – much more visually pleasing, in my opinion!

  • Love the pale palette, but haven’t gotten used to those boots – maybe never will?

  • So fresh. I love it all.

  • I ordered similar boots last fall and sent them back. They looked very strange in real life, especially when one is walking.

  • Its a great look and I love the pale colors. I like the boots, but I don’t have the length of leg to carry it off well. It would literally look like 2 shapeless tree trunks, I’m afraid. I do love the beige leather in a boot though.

  • I’ve always loved very pale colours for Winter and this is wonderful! I don’t think you have to have the exact same items, similar pieces and colours to suit would be just as good. But I do need to find the slim, tanned pins 🙂

  • Agreed. I have a pale pair of Miu Miu boots that I would substitute for the Givenchy’s (I’m just too short for those, would look very tree- stumpy), but the sweater is like a siren song…
