Why Did You Wear That: Fall Overhaul
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

September 22nd marked the first day of fall (and also my dad’s and beloved pooch’s birthdays).  Now you can officially start complaining about the end of summer… not that you haven’t been doing so since Labor Day and the end of your summer share.  I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I actually find fall to be a little bit magical.  It’s nice to have everyone back in the city.  Sidewalks are full of brunchers on the weekends soaking in the last bits of tolerable temperatures.  There seems to be a tinge of excitement in the crisp air.  For what- I’m not quite sure… can’t possibly be the impending arctic winter.  And while I do love a teeny bikini, I’ve always preferred dressing for fall.  Layering cashmere, leather, boots, and coats may seem daunting to some though.  So, I’ve put together ten fall trends that will help you start your shopping list and soften the shift from summer to fall.

Why Did You Wear That: Work in Progress

kirsten smithWhen I first came to New York, it was a very different place.  I spent the summer as an intern at Escada, living in a sublet studio apartment on West 49th Street.  Other than sleeping and going to work, I didn’t spend much time in that neighborhood known as Hell’s Kitchen.  The majority of my first Manhattan adventures happened right where I live today.   Back when the Meatpacking District lived up to its illustrious moniker, we stepped over pools of blood and hunks of meat in our stilettos before making it to our final destination.  During that time, before Buddha Bar moved in and skyrocketed the rent, our friends and designers had their studios on Little West 12th Street, which is where more than many of our New York City nights began.  We’d drink and dance and swap out our Midwestern garb for the stylings of our fashionable friends.  When the clock struck midnight, we didn’t head home like Cinderella.  That’s when our evening began.  This was the era when rubbing elbows with an Olsen and sitting down to rest your feet only to find Roberto Cavalli seated beside you was commonplace.  Unlike LA, no one here bothered to bat an eyelash.

Why Did You Wear That: Short Stop
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

women wearing shortsEven though summer has been playing hard to get this year, it’s just about time to retire the jeans and trade them in for short shorts.  Hey, you haven’t been sweating to the oldies for nothing.  Might as well cash in on that gym membership.  Those toned stems aren’t any kind of coincidence and it would be totally selfish not to share them with the world.  Enter Cult of Individuality who has made it their business to make a statement out of your bottoms…

Sometimes to bring a bit flare to your wardrobe, it’s best to start from the bottom.  Printed and destroyed denim is a great way to bring interest to your look.  You may think that shorts are simply meant for a casual daytime look, but check out how to style shorts for any kind of occasion- from day to night.

Friday Frocks: Festival Ready
Written by: WhyDid | Friday Frocks

bohemianWhether you’re planning on getting down and dirty at a music festival or just bopping around town running errands this weekend, there is no better time than now to channel your inner Stevie Nicks.  You know she’s been itching to get out.  The look is effortlessly feminine with just a little bit of edge.  Take it easy with the footwear, opting for flat sandals or suede booties and leave hair loose and tousled.  Layer long necklaces and don’t be afraid to load on the bangles.

Lightning strikes, maybe once, maybe twice… and it all comes down to you.
