The Lust List: Fall Neutrals

What a wonky fall season we’re having, huh? One minute, we were unburying pashminas from the back of our closets, and the next we’re hitting 80 degree temperatures. Autumn, you’re a fickle Bitch.

With this unpredictable thermometer in play, it’s anyone’s guess what to wear every morning. We’re relying heavily on versatile separates in a neutral palate that transition effortlessly from sunny, summer-like skies to brisk fall winds.


This classic midi dress has enough weight to it to be seasonally appropriate for mid October, but allows Emily some ventilation on the warmer days when paired with an open toe. A chic structured midi is perfect to take you from the office right into happy hour.


In this bizarre time where fall scarves are too stuffy, lightweight neck scarves are a staple. It’s the perfect way to add a pop of color and a bit of a Parisian flair to your look. Emily typically opts for silk patterned neck scarves, while I’ve been rocking bandanas in black or gray for more of an urban edge. As an added bonus, scarves negate the need for necklaces so you can keep the accessories simple.

The best thing about this neutral palate is you can easily mix and match as we transition into chillier weather. The classic dress is interchangable with straight jeans and a crisp Oxford shirt, or a jewel-toned jumper. Keep the light coat, nude accessories, throw on a scarf, and you’re out the door.
