Lumberjack style is so in right now, to the point that the phrase lumbersexual has been coined as a way of describing a man who dresses with an outdoorsy and rugged aesthetic. We’re wondering if the obsession with this new-era lumberjack has less to do with the actual man, and more to do with his pattern of choice: plaid. Well ladies can rock a plaid flannel just as well as men can! And here’s proof:
Lately we’re really feeling jeans that are jazzed up. With the holidays right around the corner, adding a little sparkle or flair to your pair makes them all the more festive. Last year we were all about the embellished sweater, but this time around we think its time that the jeans got a chance to shine! We love the look paired with a basic tee or sweater that really lets the look of the embellished denim shine through.
This season fashionistas are going full-force with faux fur! We’re seeing the most stylish ladies rocking colorful coats that have a life of their own whenever the wind picks up. We love this over-the-top style, and it sure helps that you get to walk around in a comfy cozy blanket! Years ago faux fur was met with looks of disdain, but the game has changed and now we’re seeing this unique textile in high-quality finishes and fun colors. Another added bonus of going faux? The lower price tag means more room for experimentation. You want a hot pink fur coat that is guaranteed to only be on trend for one season? You do it.
When it comes to fall colors, there’s one that is almost always in our homes, on our feet, and dominating the landscape. We’re talking about a neutral that goes with almost everything, and imparts an undeniable classic flair: cognac. The color is like its namesake; woodsy and warm with a hint of masculinity.
Cognac is the perfect shade of brown for leather accessories like bags and boots. A pair of cognac boots and skinny dark-wash jeans are a match made in heaven for fall.
Want to make your home feel cozy, rugged, and also somehow luxurious? Enter the cognac leather couch. This warm color makes your home inviting, especially when used on such a statement piece in the room.
While cognac may seem to take a backseat to other fall wedding colors, don’t be fooled! This beautiful brown makes its way into wedding decor through leather and wooden accents.

This fall we’re falling for a trend that has us feeling almost superhuman. This season let’s leave the emblazoned letters to the superheroes, but try their capes on for size. These elegant alternatives to jackets and coats are the perfect solution for those who prefer a little mobility in their outerwear. Not only are capes sophisticated and stylish, they’re also supremely comfortable. They also look perfect paired with a mini-dress or with tucked in jeans and killer boots for the ultimate in fall style.
