Though I'm definitely lamenting the shorter days, I can't deny that the arrival of fall temperatures is an exciting time for my wardrobe: I love being able to layer and play with different textures as part of my daily outfits. I love the feeling of wool against leather, of knits and soft cashmeres, and of dark patterns set against the auburns and oranges of the season. IGIGI has been on my radar for a while (and their holiday looks that arrived last week are a lot of glam), and this fall's collection has been their best yet. I instantly fell in love with this black wrap coat, an easy-to-wear piece that instantly pulls together a look; I even worn this coat on my way to the gym over leggings and a tank, and managed to escape the feeling of walking around the city in workout-clothes (a major bonus, since I'm still not sold on the whole "athleisure" trend).
By the way, if you're new to IGIGI, their sizes definitely tend to run large; I got the coat in a 14/16 and there's lots of room for layering thick knits underneath. I also wish I had remembered to snap a pic of the dress without the coat on it (slipped my mind, and plus, it was chilly!), because the cut is ridiculously flattering; "flattering" isn't something that generally matters to me, but when a brand gets their cuts right, it's hard to deny the impact it makes!
