The Quiet Cold.
In these final days of autumn, the shorter daylight hours are reflected in the cold humming of the city. The chill that overwhelms you as you wrap up in as many layers as you can find, all while being consumed by the incoming force of winter. Heavy air weighs down, making every moment in the darkness feel as though it is purely your own. No observers, no distractions, simply a forceful break to attend to the moment.
Fall in the city this year has been something unlike I’ve ever experienced growing up. Normally we have a heavy coat of snow by the end of November, and temperatures well below zero. This year, however, the season took every minute to slowly transition to the cooler winter temperatures. While today we had our first snowfall, Autumn really felt like a season this year. But as with any good thing, it is coming to a close – and that is something that you can just feel.
I have been wearing a lot of pieces with a longline silhouette lately, I just really like the oversized look. Being tall and very slim it just feels much more in proportion than something very cropped and skin tight. Layering a simple grey and black look like this one was all about tonal values and texture. The black chelsea boots and pants, paired with a heather grey shirt and deep grey alpaca sweater made for a look that I just can’t get enough of. It is warm and relaxed, yet feels refined and timeless.
