Most people I know enjoy dressing for Fall. I bat for Team Spring and Summer, but Autumn is magical in its own way. I enjoy the change of dress from Summer clothing, as well as the glorious fiery foliage. Onward to a stylish and fabulous Fall. 

Stock levels are low at most retailers, especially in brick-and-mortar stores. I suspect this has a lot to do with ongoing supply chain issues brought on by the global pandemic. That said, retail looks better than it did last year. I had a good browse at our Scotch & Soda last week and the items are incredible if you like earth tones and a sense of practical sporty chic with an edge. Beautifully made as always. Very proud of this Dutch label that continues to be fabulous. Browse the colour and size options.

  • SCOTCH & SODA Short tweed jacket: The cut of this short tweed jacket is AMAZING. The sleeves are works of art, and like origami. It is particularly good with skirts, dresses and high-rise bottoms. It glides over your figure like a jigsaw puzzle that fits. It would be mine if it weren't earthy.
  • SCOTCH & SODA Crewneck Sweater Vest: If you like slouchy vests, high necklines and coppery cinnamon - try this one. The high neckline and welt give it ample structure.
  • SCOTCH & SODA Houndstooth Check Blazer: An on-trend '90s inspired blazer that is more lilac in person, and has cigarette pants to match.
  • SCOTCH & SODA Classic crew neck sweater: Navy and cinnamon stripes are unique, and the fluid fit of this one is yummy. Silky to the touch, and with a retro '80s dropped shoulder.
  • SCOTCH & SODA Reversible printed bomber: Silky reversible bomber jackets are signature to this brand, and these are beautifully luxe. Click the link to see four pattern options.
  • SCOTCH & SODA Knotted relaxed-fit sweater: The slouch of this pullover is tempered by the front knot detailing, and the varied directions of the rib. It's less bulky on the body than you expect, and comes in oatmeal.
  • SCOTCH & SODA Padded wool-blend shirt jacket: This shacket is quilted for warmth, and graphically divine in the navy and olive windowpane. I like the way it hangs very straight and is beyond body type. STUNNING quality.
  • SCOTCH & SODA Relaxed fit printed shirt: This pattern is beautifully different, and so is the olive version. The blouse feels luxe, is textured, and LONG. Fab for Team Tall.
  • Everlane The Cotton–Merino Floral Crew: A graphic floral that looks as good and pretty in the grey and lilac. The sleeves are GORGEOUS, and are fab under a cape. The welt adds excellent structure. The yellow is more muted in person.
  • Zella Sleek Track Pants: If you like to wear streamlined joggers in a brighter shade of olive, try these. They are thicker than the norm, and run a little big. They mould to the shape of most body types.
  • OluKai Pehuea Li Convertible Sneaker: These are the best crisp and clean low-top earthy sneakers of the year. Comfy, rich, and neat on the foot. Fits a range of foot shapes.
  • Madewell Addition Quilted Packable Puffer Jacket: GORGEOUS quality lightweight puffer that looks more architectural than you expect. At first I thought the length was odd but the slight swing of the silhouette works well with the length. It might be a little roomy if you like a narrow fit. Comes in sage green.
  • KOBI HALPERIN Gianna Jacket: Cobalt jackets have been scarce, making this one all the more fab. Ruffled in an architectural way, and works particularly well on straighter and apple-shaped body types. Comes in black.
  • Liverpool Classic Denim Jacket: Earthy Denim Jacket Fabness. Stretchy, soft, versatile, and comfy.
  • HOBBS LONDON Martie Boxy Denim Jacket: A very clean and crisp olive jacket that is beautifully made. Good with dresses, skirts and pants. Nice fluid fit.
  • HOBBS LONDON Hackness Tailored Blazer: I have two of these from a couple of seasons ago, and they are high-quality versatile pieces for my style. They fit beautifully, and are a wonderful shorter length. I've worn them on long flights, they are that comfy and do not crease. They will be on the narrow side if you prefer a roomier fit. Good on narrow shoulders.
  • KUT from the Kloth Quinn Faux Suede Moto Jacket: Machine Washable Suede Moto Fabness. Might run a little big. Comes in more neutrals.
  • COS Colour-block Fine-knit Top: This is a beauty if you like to remix earth tones with a saturated pink or peach. Fluid, long, and very cosy.
  • CeCe Clip Dot Long Sleeve Blouse: An easy boho-inspired blouse that's fluid but not baggy. Good on a larger bust, and forgiving on the midsection. A Swiss dot is pretty and refined, and this comes in many colours. No need to semi-tuck.
  • Boden Charlotte Cardigan: A unique navy cardigan with a collar and white buttons. It's long so great for Team Tall or Long Torso. A knit with some weight, and a bit like a sweater jacket.
  • SCOTCH & SODA Printed high-neck slim-fit T-shirt: These slim-fit tees come in an assortment of unusual earthy patterns. They are great to layer under toppers, vests, and dresses too.
  • SCOTCH & SODA Cowl Neck Sweatshirt: Fashion sweatshirts are the bomb and give knitwear some competition. Pumpkin spice and all things nice, although there is a cream version. The sleeves make the sweatshirt unique, and the T-neck collar can be folded down.
  • Everlane The Sleeveless Turtleneck: This can be worn as a top and layering item under a topper. Or as a vest over a top or dress. It's fluid and looks elegant.
  • Banana Republic Sweater Hoodie: I got this in the cream to wear under my new sandy windowpane Hugo Boss pants suit with hybrid gold wing top sneakers. or cream boots. The cream is rich, and the fabric feels yummy and substantial. It's mostly made of an eco-friendly viscose, which is a natural fibre. I love the higher neckline of the hood. It also perfectly matches my new cream combat boots so it will get lots of wear.
  • Boden Phillipa Rugby Top: If you enjoy rugby stripes, this one comes in unusual colour combinations.
  • SCOTCH & SODA Printed scarf scrunchie: Try a scrunchie with a scarf if you pop your hair into a low or high ponytail.
  • Whistles Denim Pleated Midi Skirt: An interesting denim skirt with fun front and back basque detailing. That's the part you can showcase by tucking or semi-tucking tops. Fab twirling potential. Looks great with tall flat stompy boots too.
  • Boden Cashmere Sweater Vest: A classic and more fitted vest to wear as a top, or pop over a blouse or shirt. Lots of colours.
  • Cole Haan Women's Zerogrand Wing Oxford Closed Hole Ii: A Cole Haan iconic classic that is half sneaker and half oxford. Very soft, comfy and ligthweight. Comes in more neutrals.
  • Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Berkshire Water Resistant Sneaker Boot: I tried these and almost kept them because they are VERY comfortable, warm, and water resistant. The fleece lining is sublime. The white is more cream in person. I returned them because I want the outer fabric to be leather. Comes in black. Extremely lightweight.
  • Boden Elizabeth Coat: A statement coat in navy velvet paisley. DELICIOUSLY different. It's a versatile length and fit, and I like the back boxy pleat. Dress it up or down.
  • Gap Organic Cotton Joggers: These thick and substantial cotton joggers come in Tall, Petite and Regular lengths across five neutrals. They are partly made of Reribra which is an ecological fabric made of upcycled cotton scraps from pre & post consumer cotton waste. They have a half elastic waist, and the cut moulds to most body types.
  • Banana Republic Leather Hobo Bag: A fab light neutral bag to wear as temperatures drop. Lies flat against the body and anchors well on the shoulder.
  • Miz Mooz Dylan Sandal: These can work really well in a hot and warm Fall and Winter, and come in other neutrals. Soft, buttery, comfy, well-made, and a little rugged.
  • Everlane The Modern Breton Tee: An earth-toned Breton striped tee is a rare find, and this one is great. Lovely quality, and nice slouch. Comes in two more stripes.
  • Talbots Terrier Brooch: I'm not a big brooch and earth tone person, but HAD to have this Yorkie brooch because it looks like our little Jo. A completely emotional purchase, and I am high fiving all Terrier lovers!
