Tis the season of pumpkin spice, warm colors, apple picking and fuzzy blankets – but, most of all, it’s fall fashion time! Autumn is the time where we can combine the most comfortable articles in our closets with high-style. Just the words “sweater weather” make me want to strut downtown in my booties and infinity scarf.
I affectionately call fall “layering season.” Yes, I will be layering my coffee cake on top of my pumpkin pie, but it’s time for sweaters, cardigans, hats, gloves, scarves, tights and more! Now, in order to build these fashion masterpieces, you need a foundation, and that’s Body Bark. Body Bark’s lightweight fabric allows you to pile on the heavy sweaters without the itch or added heat.
