Fall is finally upon us, so it's time to welcome Winsome's newest collection! This season, we're looking forward to wearing long coats and fuzzy knits, and of course lots of black basics to pair with all sorts of Fall favorites. The collection is essentially a juxtaposing combination of effortlessly chic styles made from comfy textiles and simple silhouettes. Here's the breakdown:
This elegant open knit sweater coat is made from 100% heather gray wool. Personally, it's a Fall favorite; it's presented as a classy overcoat that goes with pretty much everything, but feels like you're actually wrapped in that cozy blanket you can't seem to separate from on chilly Autumn days. The Aimee features hidden inset pockets to keep your hands warm and carry any other essential items. We also love its extended lapel and mid-calf length. Wear it over any outfit, but it's especially great over dresses and skirts to give your legs a little extra warmth as the weather cools off.
The Lawrence is another outerwear piece from the Fall collection. It features a black linen interior with a wool/nylon blend twill shell in an Autumn ocre color. The color is actually my favorite part about this piece. It's perfect for the Fall and actually pairs really well with all sorts of blues, grays, and black. Similar to the Aimee, this coat has an extended lapel, but it's about mid-thigh length instead, and has three large snaps for closure. We especially love the large patch pockets and wearing it with the sleeves rolled up.
Finally turtlenecks and cowl necklines are making a comeback! These are great for Fall, so we've created the Edie: a long 100% cotton knit dress that has a neckline that's right in between a cowl and a turtleneck. It's not too bib-like and not too tight around the neck; it's just right. This dress features long sleeves and a mid-calf hemline, with a subtle yet sexy slit down the center back bottom, creating a very flattering silhouette overall. Available in black or gray, this piece makes a great day-to-night outfit.
Please welcome Winsome's first official pair of pants! The Allen pant is made from 100% cotton raw denim in a dark indigo wash. The color and hidden side zipper give these pants a chic and simplistic appearance. We love that these jeans have hidden inset pockets for the purpose of utility, rather than your standard denim patch pockets. The Allen pant also features a frayed raw hem; a trend we're seeing a lot this Fall. They're elegant in wash and style, but the unfinished hems give them a just little extra attitude.
Black jumpsuits have become an essential in our opinion. So of course we've included one in our Fall collection. The Cassady is a sleeveless jumpsuit made from a silk/elastane blend. It features a standing collar, hidden inset pockets, and a deep slit down the center back. We love how comfortable this piece is for something that's wearable to any occasion. It's a must-have basic for anyone's Fall wardrobe!
One of my favorite details about clothing is texture; fortunately cooler weather calls for fuzzy, furry, and bulkier knit textures! So we've incorporated this detail into one of our favorite Fall pieces: the Lucien. This blush pullover is made from a super fuzzy polyester material that features a turtleneck/cowl neckline similar to that of the Edie and hidden inset pockets. We love how cozy this piece makes you feel and it's texture makes it a great accent piece for Fall looks.
When it gets chilly out, we really only want to be wearing comfy knits. They're basic, but essential. This is why we've created the Junius for our Fall collection. The Junius is a light heather gray pullover made from 100% cotton French terry. It features a round neckline, an oversized front pocket, and two small slits on the front bottom hem for a little extra detail. This piece is great for day-to-day wear and I'll probably be living in mine all season.
Everybody loves pieces that can be worn in multiple ways, which is why we've created the Carmen for our Fall collection. This black tunic/dress is made from 100% sandwashed silk and has a rounded hem in the front and back, separated by deep side slits. The slits allow this piece to be styled in so many different ways. Get multiple looks from the Carmen by tying it up in the front, wearing it as a tunic with some jeans underneath, or all the way down as an elegant black dress. You could probably get away with wearing this piece for a week straight!
Along with the Carmen, we also have a black top made from 100% sandwashed silk. The Sloane is a really great basic to have for Fall. It features long sleeves, large frontal patch pockets, and buttons all the way down the center front with a hidden placket. Similar to the Carmen, this piece can be worn in all sorts of different ways. Try it totally open and unbuttoned as a light layer, buttoned halfway and tied at the bottom, or buttoned up all the way as an elegant top.
Last, but certainly not least, is the Leary: a black jacket/dress made from a cotton/elastane twill blend. One of my favorite parts about this piece is the weight of the fabric. Since it's a little thicker, the Leary makes the perfect jacket for changing seasons, and a great dress for cooler weather. This piece features a slight high low hem with side slits, a collar, button up placket, oversized patch pockets, and frayed edges on both the sleeves and bottom hemline. Wear it as a light piece of outerwear overtop any outfit, or button it up and wear it like a dress with your favorite Fall boots.
