Why: In the back-to-school spirit, I’m giving a pop quiz. You know itâ€™s officially Fall when…
A) Youâ€™re so over those endless self-tan applications
B) You switch from iced to hot lattes
C) You start to covet the cutest outerwear
D) Autumnal trends are shoved in your face by every blogger, talk show host, and glossy mag you see
All of the above, but for me it’s C especially. Take for instance this oh-so-enviable wool trench. So maybe a cream-colored coatâ€™s not the most practical of purchases for a girl who spends a good portion of her day on public transportation (and a good portion of her life as a certifiably klutzy drink-spiller). But the belt! The buttons! The collar! (The collar!) Itâ€™s worth the dry cleaning bill, and is just about the coolest, crispest way to usher in a new season. Gold stars all around for following the military trend, the clean-lined trend trend, and for the heavy hardware accents.
