can you believe five weeks ago the fall classics series launched with Talbots? what a fun gig it’s been as Talbots Fall Classics Guest Editor where we’ve taken a look at ten classic items week by week. if you missed any of the previous posts, i’m sharing those with you today. the series kicked off labor day weekend with a classic ponte blazer and slim ankle jeans. the second week zeroed in on a perennial favorite the classic pencil skirt, week three was all about a ponte sheath dress in indigo blue that’s perfect for work. last week we talked about hampshire ankle pants, audrey – a cashmere sweater, the perfect shirt, and francesca driving mocs. which brings us to today’s post where we take a look at two classic wardrobe essentials that every closet should include – the charming cardigan and silk scarf.
today, i’m wearing the charming cardigan and silk scarf with two different outfits. the first ootd pairs the classic cardigan with a traditional fall pattern – glen plaid. the muted hues of coral and brown give a fresh update to this tailored pencil skirt. one way to keep the classics from becoming stale or stodgy is to reach for modern or trendy accessories. what’s hotter than animal print this year? so i added leopard haircalf wedges into the mix for good measure. a kid suede statement handbag compliments the fall color scheme. but the star of this show is a multi-patterned silk scarf that gives the outfit a pop of color.
in my book, there’s nothing more beautiful than a silk scarf that can be worn so many different ways. Talbots has a wonderful tutorial on how to tie your scarf in five ways. this particular scarf was designed by Hannah Davies from South Wales, UK. it’s part of Talbots Art of the Scarf collection that features five limited-edition, one-of-a-kind scarves created by internationally renowned female artists. and the best part is that 20% of net proceeds benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation.® doing good and looking good truly go hand-in-hand.
here’s a recap of Talbots classics list.
- The Perfect Ponte Blazer
- The Perfect Shirt
- The Charming Cardigan
- The Audrey Cashmere Sweater
- The Ponte Sheath
- The Talbots Hampshire Ankle
- The Ponte Pencil Skirt
- The Francesca Driving Moc
- The Signature Silk Scarf
- The Slim Ankle Jean
but a charming cardigan looks fantastic partnered with a casual ootd too. a pair of slim ankle jeans were exchanged for the classic pencil skirt. and driving moc’s replaced the leopard wedges. since the temps are finally cooling off a shetland aberdeen blazer is a welcome addition come morning.
