For some, fall signals the time for unfashionable hibernation. But I love fall and I refuse to just bundle up and disappear into my parka; fashion rests for no season! The key to looking chic as the temperatures dip are layers and a fantastic coat. You and I can spend ages looking for that perfect colder-weather jacket on our own, but now we won’t have to thanks to the magnificent Dawn Levy.
Dawn has been perfecting silhouettes and researching top materials in the outerwear business for over 10 years; she is a woman who knows exactly what kind of details to look for when layering up for Fall. Her expertise and extensive travels across the globe have made her an invaluable resource with unmatched advice for inter-seasonal dressing. Here, she shares her five top tips for Fall layering.
Tip 1: Finding the right fit
“Look for form-fitting outer layers that hug the right places and conceal the rest. Pleated wool trenches with a tie are ideal.”
Tip 2: Pairing bulkier layers
“A hooded wrap-coat is a good choice to pair with bulkier sweaters. They maintain their shape while helping create a flattering hourglass silhouette.”
Tip 3: What should I look for in a puffer?
“When you reach for a puff coat, you don’t want to feel or look like a marshmallow. Choose a slim puff coat with a fur lining for added elegance and warmth.”
Tip 4: The secret on the inside
“A subtle but important detail – outwear with a detachable inner lining. This allows you to move from chilly outdoor temperatures to inner-office affairs without the sweat.”
Tip 5: Versatility is key
“I’m always a fan of versatile pieces that can be worn in several ways. I love down vests that can function above or underneath other layers.”
DAWN LEVY debuted in Fall 2011 with a luxury outerwear collection designed for today’s woman and her desire for timeless style combined with current fashion.
Each design has been created with the fashion conscious woman in mind; a woman who requires her outerwear to enhance and complete the fashion beneath it. As appropriate for après ski as for active city life, each design features Dawn Levy’s signature; a sculpted, flattering silhouette rich in modern details.
