I recently got an email from a reader who’s been feeling like he’s trapped in a bit of a style rut. He noted a lack of inspiration, having fallen into a pattern of wearing a “self-imposed uniform” every day. We’ve all been there in some way, shape, or form. Just throwing an easy go-to outfit because there’s not enough time in the morning or there are too many other things to think about. Upgrading “the usual,” especially in the fall, is simple. Just add a great scarf.

The “shacket” has been a great lightweight outerwear alternative and here’s another: the chunky shawl collar cardigan.

There’s nothing sharper in the fall than the addition of some rich jewel tones. Here’s one way to incorporate them into your look.
