Greetings on this fine fall Monday! Although, I have to say, it feels more like winter than fall. It’s 38 degrees here in Philly this morning. Brrr… But anyway, you’re here for the fashion, not the weather, so let’s discuss today’s look. I’m styling a long cardigan outfit with crop utility pants for fall!
Unfortunately, this color is low inventory, but I found some other options for you. They’re linked at the end of the post.
I really like the fit on these, and how they have the look of cargo pants without the flap pockets that can add bulk.
They’re soft and stretchy, and I would say they run true to size. They were quite snug on me at first, but they did loosen up some with wear. I’m wearing my usual size 6.
Also worth noting, these pants are meant to be a crop length, with a 26″ inseam, and they also come in petite sizes.
I paired them with the Marc Fisher booties from the #NSale. These boots were under $100 during the sale, but right now the price tag is pretty steep. I’m hoping they go on sale again closer to Black Friday.
This is the Cloud Suede, and I love how it coordinates with the oatmeal color from the cardigan. Darker boots would work too, but it would create a heavier look overall.
The boots have a higher shaft, so they actually pair perfectly with the crop pants. When I wear longer pants with these, I need a cuff, or a wider leg that can be worn over the shaft of the booties.
The cardigan is yet another #NSale purchase! Even at full retail price, I think this sweater gives you a lot of bang for your buck.
It’s verrry soft and cozy, but on the thinner side, and there are no pockets or yokes or extra details to add visual bulk. Plus, the slim, longline silhouette is elongating.
I do recommend sizing down in this sweater, though. I have the XS, and it’s still plenty roomy.
I accessorized with my gold J initial pendant and a Victoria Emerson bracelet, which I’m happy to say is back in stock! The Alicante boho cuff is probably the one of hers I wear the most. I just love combination of silvery beads and coins with the pale crystals and metallic chains.
And then I carried my taupe Rebecca Minkoff Love crossbody with the gold hardware. As I’ve shared before, this exact color/size combo is no longer in stock, but you can find the current offerings here.
The Kira quilted leather tote that I have in black is also on sale, as is the pebbled leather version, which I think I actually prefer. It’s a little less dressy, and the pebbled leather might hold up better… although I have no complaints about the quilted one.
Anyway, I hope this look inspires you to shop your closet and put some of these colors together in various ways.
