The Southern Style Guide: Fall 2015


Words + Production: Jess Graves | Photos: Caroline Fontenot | Styling: Candice Beaty

To designate a style guide "Southern", I think its important to take into consideration that while we might be eyeballing fall sweaters and boots, for most folks south of the Mason-Dixon, those things are still a couple months away from our daily rotation. That's why, when pulling for this guide, we were mindful of not only the item's roots, but its wearability right now. Below, a few of our favorite "fall-ish" things that will serve you while it's still warm out and well into the cooler months ahead. 

For Gals:

A great way to use our hand-dyed kimono as a fall transition piece is to wear it in place of a long cardigan. Layer it over long dresses or jeans and tall boots. As the weather turns colder, I specifically love layering them over whisper-thin long-sleeved cashmere turtlenecks.
