Boston, Fashion

Nautical…or Not

photo 2This lightweight, navy & white striped maxi skirt from a few LF Spring/Summer lines ago presented itself to me as a beachy piece, meant to be worn on a boat with a crochet bathing suit and something white and billowy and/or covered in little anchors. I’d never even worn the thing without sandals in our three-year relationship, so it got crammed into the back of my drawers once fall started feeling like fall. But since navy and black has been such a prominent color combination this fall/winter, it caught my eye yesterday while I was getting ready to do some holiday shopping on Newbury Street. With a pair of thick Wolford tights underneath, a Theory T-shirt in an ambiguous color they call “midnight,” my AllSaints leather jacket, Tod’s boots, and my ever-so-relevant Reiss London burgundy hat, you’d think this summery skirt was made to see some snowbanks.

Meanwhile, I saw a lot of other cool wintry looks between Heinz and Copley. Boston’s fashionistas are staying warm and current in neutrals & navy, fur (often in lieu of scarves), plaid, floppy/wide-brimmed hats and the side braid. IMG_1132
