While I worked at Nordstrom we did a series a windows called “Real Clothes for Real People.” It was one of the most challenging and certainly one of the most popular. I think the positive reaction was because we took some great clothes that could become a part of real-life wardrobes.
When I came across this spread of photos from the current French Glamour magazine, they captured perfectly what I’m talking about. All of these are very fashionable yet wearable.
Instead of one plaid, try a mix- here a D&G woolen overcoat and shirt work well with the high-waist skirt by New Look. Don’t forget to add a pair of leather boots, a hat and this bag from Kipling.
Red is a hot color for fall. Choose a statement piece like this front bow shirt by Mexx. Worn with it are a Kenzo jacket, wool pants with suspenders (unseen) from DDP and brown leather shoulder bag at A.P.C.
The head scarf is a classic accessory. Wear it with a trench from Pennyblack, a plaid silk muslin dress by Dimension, patterned tights and spectator shoes to make the whole look fashion-forward.
