Last weekend, I spent a delightful day in New York City. Although it was chilly, the sun was out, and there was a generally cheerful vibe on the streets; stores like Lord & Taylor and Saks had already begun decking out storefronts for the holidays, while Valentino and Botega Veneta featured beautiful autumn-hued garments.

Street style as usual, inspired me with great outfits – this time, in fall colors. You might recall the following muse from our socks post.
I’m thinking you will also be inspired by this slideshow of another 5 favorite examples of autumn style in New York:
Browns and beiges are a classic fall color combination. What I particularly love about this first outfit are subtle variations of color, pattern, and texture: muted leopard print scarf of a smooth texture combined with a sectioned faux fur jacket and genuine fur handbag in varying tones of beige and ivory.
A great style trick is adding a third accent piece to your outfit. Our second muse’s black and beige dress with black scarf, tights and boots are given a huge style boost with the orange leather jacket.
Wearing a lighter orange with a cream-colored coat and scarf makes for the perfect fall-to-winter transition outfit.
Purple and magenta are among my favorite fall colors. This fringy poncho-like jacket makes quite a statement and is nicely accompanied by an all-black outfit and grey accessories at top and bottom.
Our final muse has discovered the perfect way to counter shorter, darker days this time of year – with an explosion of color! Wearing a luminous floral dress and matching coat with black tights and handbag makes for the perfect “winter floral” ensemble – here in tones that look less like a truly winterish ensemble and more like autumn-under-black-light.
This slideshow was ordered according to my preferences: the looks keep getting better, in my opinion. Which is your favorite fall look?
