Outfit of the Week: Pumpkin Spice

Jesse L. Brooks


Since the rest of the world seems more than ready for a spooky and fall season, we thought to join the party! Autumn is less than two weeks away, and we can't seem to get our minds off of the rich hues that the season brings along with its cooler temps and fresh breezes. This week's look is about hitting the town. 

We started things off with a dress perfect for a little wining and dining. Multiple bold details – from an off-the-shoulder bodice to a rich pumpkin-y orange colorway – make this minidress from Self-Portrait a standout. This crisp cotton-poplin style fits closely up top, thanks to a gathered front and a shirred back, while its sleeves and skirt are comparatively airy, shaped with stretch inserts and loose pleats. Tying in a little fall fun with the jewelry are decorative pumpkin earrings by BaubleBar. Twinkling crystals bring spooktastic color to these autumn-themed studs, finished with gleaming goldtone plate and enameled accents.

Adding some spiciness to our feet are Aquazzura's saffron-hued Isla sandals. These head-turners exude summer-meets-fall charm. They are made in Italy from supple suede with wraparound ankle ties, crystal embellishments and raffia trims. We wanted to keep our bag a little more low-key, yet still sophisticated and charming. Jil Sander's beige leather clutch bag presents the label's signature artistic minimalism. Delicately crafted from grained leather, it features a top flap and contrasting silver-tone metal sphere at the handle. No fall-inspired look would be complete without a little lipstick. Mac's Love Me Liquid formula is creamy, hydrating, and decadently rich with color offering a lightweight, lush satin finish. This shade of intense burnt orange will warm up any festive look. 

Whether it's a special occasion or just an evening out with your friends (or significant other), in this look, everyone will be craving your "Pumpkin Spice" flavor.
