Any conversation about the elements of fall style will likely focus on a few key things: layering, fabrics, and textures. Certainly some of my favorite fall style components, but let's talk about something usually reserved for discussions about foliage: color. And, more specifically, jewel tones. 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. VIEW MORE ▶︎
This last month has been quite a whirlwind for us here at HSS. Lots of travel, lots of new collaborations, and lots of new projects. It's the best kind of busy, but there've definitely been moments when I feel like my back has been against the wall. I'm trying to take it all in stride and keep the content (including the new video series) coming, which has led me to often reflect and think, "where has the time gone?" Case in point: I can't believe that it's been nearly a month since New York Fashion Week. Other obligations kept me from attending more shows and events that I'd hoped to see, but I was able to sneak up for the weekend. Here's one of the outfits I brought along. VIEW MORE ▶︎

You can get by in life by just maintaining the status quo. By simply doing what's expected of you. But to be truly exceptional—to stand out and above—requires you to challenge limits, both those set by others and those you set for yourself. This doesn't mean constantly questioning authority or being an unapologetic rebel, necessarily, but rather having an inner drive that makes you strive relentlessly to be better than you are. Some people view limits as borders, others accept them as challenges. VIEW MORE ▶︎
Though it's just about time to swap summer-weight fabrics for those more fitting for fall, I wanted to wring one more look out of my seersucker suit. From summer wedding to business to suit separates, I've dedicated the past couple of weeks to showing off its versatility. So before this suit is retired for the season, here's a nod to classic style with a little bit of a personal touch via some interesting cuff links. VIEW MORE ▶︎
Train travel is something I've loved ever since I was a kid. I can still remember my first real train trip—just a short ride between my hometown, Schenectady, NY, and nearby Amsterdam—which was arranged expressly for me to have the experience. It's a good thing that I still enjoy riding the rails because it's something that's become much more frequent and necessary as the blog has continued to grow. VIEW MORE ▶︎
This was completely unplanned, but exactly one year ago I published an almost identical look, focusing on the resurgence in popularity of the double-breasted blazer. Dedicated readers know that one of my absolute favorite things to illustrate is what I call the small changes/big impact principle. Meaning, you can make the same basic outfit give off a completely different vibe and character with just a few minor changes. How did I do it here? Look back, then read on. VIEW MORE ▶︎
