OOTW: The Great Outdoors

Jesse L. Brooks

 

As summer begins to unwind, we are taking advantage of a few more weeks of warm, sunny days with an outfit made for appreciating nature. 

Instead of looking outward for inspiration, Oscar de la Renta used the world of interiors as a starting place for Pre-Fall '20. This mid-length trench dress is cut from airy stretch-cotton that's printed with a wallpaper inspired motif filled with trees and water.

In this look, you'll be more than ready to take on 'The Great Outdoors' in style.

When accessorizing, we to turned to the inspiration of the woods, starting with these rich, earthy toned sandals by Gianvito Rossi. In hazelnut brown lambskin leather, they're set on sleek heels and have a series of braided and self-tie straps. To bring out the cool blue streams found in our dress, we opted for a complimenting bag with YSL's sleek 'Chyc' leather clutch. Drawing even more attention to the lush shades of green found on the trees, these striking drop earrings are a must. Mukhi Sisters' 18kt gold earring celebrates the ancient symbol of the scarab beetle. It's bezel set with a 0.66ct drop of emerald cut tourmaline, thought to promote inspiration and balance. Since this is clearly an ensemble meant for daytime wear, a chic pair of shades are in order. Chloé heightens the summery mood of these 'Carlina' sunglasses by printing the gold-tone metal frames with a brown gradient, reminiscent of a sunset.

When it came to beauty, we did sneak in one little hint of fall with our lip color. This warm cherry shade by Tom Ford certainly works for summer, but also puts out the message that autumn is near.

These days going outside for a little adventure is one of the most refreshing (not to mention safest) options, and in this look, you'll be more than ready to take on 'The Great Outdoors' in style.
