The seasonal need for extra layers brings with it new opportunities to play. By this logic, which we subscribe to wholeheartedly, we’re smack in the middle of the most adventurous time of the year. Mixing performance gear with femme separates, piling on Panthère de Cartier statement pieces, pitting patterns against one another, and so on—it’s all fair game.
Who says necklaces have to sit directly on your neck? Make like Gwyneth and use a sculptural, clavicle-grazing cuff necklace as a collar over a crisp, menswear-inspired shirt. The effect is striking—and beautifully nuanced upon closer inspection.
Double Up on Prints and Patterns
One might argue that plaids and stripes are members of the same larger pattern family. Whether or not you agree, there’s no denying that together, the two make a cozy, playful statement.

Ask any fashion person and they’ll confirm that shorts are having a moment—one that’s not ending just because there are crunchy leaves on the ground. Pair with a substantial cardigan and a blazer up top and loafer-boot hybrids below.
Be a Good Sport
A sporty puffer and hiking boots, plus a pencil skirt and a formfitting neon knit. What do these pieces have in common? Not much, and that’s the point. The obviously feminine ones add a lovely dose of chicness to the utilitarian ones.

Go for Gold
One statement ring is good. Two is better. Three statement rings, and all of them Panthère de Cartier? That’s in-your-face, over-the-top amazing. Add a swipe of red lipstick and an accessory with equally shiny hardware for a fierce take on festive attire.
