Fall is right around the corner, and while we don’t want to think about school supplies quite yet, we are definitely ready to start collecting and curating our fall outerwear. Here are the designers we can’t get enough of.
Case in point: Varsity of Love
William Okpo, a label founded by two sisters whose parents immigrated to the United States from Nigeria, explores the intersection of old and new cultures. The “WO” on the Varsity of Love jacket pays homage to the sisters’ father. Pair it with a Body Bark turtleneck tank, and also check out the oversized eyelet trend in their current collection.
Case in point: HTML Moto
The Arrivals is a direct-to-consumer company obsessed with providing functional, architectural clothing without retail markups. Their HTML Moto jacket, with its tongue-in-cheek :// on the back, is perfect over a Body Bark camisole for an edgy, casual look. We’re obsessed.
Case in point: Winter 2018 Collection
Patricia Michaels (you might recognize her name from Project Runway) draws inspiration from nature and her Native roots. Her pieces are custom-made in her studio in New Mexico, her home state. It might be a little early to buy from her Winter 2018 collection, but keep an eye on this structured, mandarin collar jacket that we adore — we can just picture it with Body Bark leggings.
Case in point: Sleek Asymmetric Cape
Vivienne Hu’s ready-to-wear collection is feminine, classy and sometimes funky. We love it. See what we mean in the case of this colorful Asymmetric Cape, which you could wear with a Body Bark v-neck as an almost-invisible, cozy first layer.
Case in point: Atticus Houndstooth Oversized Trench
Tibi has some unique offerings (patent wool, anyone?), but they also shine when it comes to plain old favorites. We’re fans of the Atticus Houndstooth Oversized Trench, where a tiny pattern meets an oversized cut, paired with a Body Bark crew neck. The look is different enough to stand out and classic enough to fit in.
Case in point: Back Bow Flounce Jacket
We’re almost positive you’re familiar with Kate Spade, but we couldn’t leave this brand out when we saw this adorable hourglass-shaped jacket. It’s what we call errand-wear (or yoga-wear, or latte-wear) and fits cleanly over a colorful Body Bark tank.
Case in point: Macramé Lace Trench Coat
This is another brand you’ve heard of, but no one does a trench coat like Burberry, and even though the Macramé Lace Trench Coat may be a splurge, it’s just so darn pretty. You could also check out the less-expensive Hooded Lightweight Oversize Parka, over a simple Body Bark scoop, if you’re in an area with fall rains.
