A little red, white and blue never hurt anybody! When the infamous color trio makes its appearances at the beginning of summer, it’s all you see in stores, on your Instagram feed, and on your favorite style icons for two months. However, the palette’s ubiquitousness usually tapers out before the first of August to make room for more autumnal hues. So before I exchange my bright primary pops of color for burgundy, olive, and camel, I wanted to get one last “farewell” post in saluting summer’s most iconic color palette. This week, I’m bringing it back for a less-fireworks, more-fireside vibe.
Leaves are falling, school buses are running, and pumpkin spice lattes are back….it’s sweater weather, and I couldn’t be more ecstatic! Cable knits, turtlenecks and shaggy cardigans will all debut from my closet this fall, but on the first breezy day this year, I was excited to don something a little different: the varsity sweater. Iconic and timeless, the varsity sweater has been around for decades. Designers reinvent the iconic style year after year with their signature twists, so it was only a matter of time before one of my favorite brands (Alice + Olivia) joined the club.
