Fun prompt for you: close your eyes, and imagine the visual embodiment of fall. Did you picture bright orange, yellow, and brown leaves scattered across the park? Or maybe you pictured snuggling up with a pumpkin spice latte? For me, envisioning fall invokes all of these images, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I dream primarily of one specific thing: blazers.
I should preface this by saying fall fashion generally can have me daydreaming for hours—who wouldn’t want to think about knee-high boots, chunky knits, and leather pants?
