Check out regular posts from Sarah Hendren, our super-stylish Savvy buyer, as she fills us in on all things Savvy—from the hottest trends to the bands she’s loving right now to dreamy vacation spots you might not know about.
Even though we’re not quite ready for summer to end, fall is just around the corner, and there’s nothing more exciting to the fashion-loving Savvy crew as getting new gear for the season. One of our favorite trends for fall is Tough Couture. It combines a high-fashion, runway-inspired aesthetic with the grit of street style. It’s clean and precise with a little bit of off-kilter cool. But the best way to show you what this trend is all about is to style out some looks, so we asked our Savvy buyer, Sarah, to put a few together.
“Anything leather—or faux leather, in the case of these pants from Piper—is massive for fall. These pants are also surprisingly versatile. I love pairing them with this cozy-yet-modern sweater from Tildon. Rock a great clutch or handbag, and you’re ready for Sunday morning brunch (and mimosas!) with friends.”
“Next up: a night out on the town! A loose tee adds street-style cred to this formfitting Leith skirt. Add a faux-leather vest and chunky necklace for some some edge. A bold orange from Topshop Lipstick in ‘Ohh LaLa’ doesn’t hurt, either.”
“I love that you could wear this to work (depending on where you work), but it’s chic enough for after-5 cocktails. Get this Tildon zip-seam pencil skirt (did I mention leather is huge for fall?). I paired it with a modern top in a hot hue from ASTR and a chunky Bonnie Jonas necklace. And you totally need at least several pairs of cool sunglasses. A girl’s gotta maintain a little mystery.”
