- The Graham Crewneck sweater from Madewell
We're deep into the official fall, when cooler temperatures and a senior-citizen-dinner-hour sunset make us want to bury ourselves in thick, cozy fabrics and nubby textures. No color says autumn like brown, a hue that complements the growing darkness of the season but still suggests the warmth of the hearth. Pair it with orange tones, like coral or pumpkin, to reflect the changing colors outside.
A classic crewneck in a fuzzy angora blend is a must. Some jeans, some boots, and you're done. Alexa Chung for Madewell sweater (above), $73.50 at Madewell.com.
I know this March by Marc Jacobs dress is very expensive. But it's perfect: the color goes with almost anything, and it will never go out of style. You could wear it one day a week from September through March for the rest of your life. It's $498 at Shopbop.com.
For those who never quite picked up the art of scarf arrangement, the infinity scarf—a loop of material—is a godsend. And it'll keep you feeling snug too. The Club Monaco Eleanor scarf is $99 at Shopbop.com.
It's the perennial debate when buying boots: black or brown? These brown ankle boots lend some urban bohemian chic to an ensemble that black just can't match. The "Rhinelander" bootie by OTBT is $159.95 at Nordstrom.com.
