The Nemesis wash by J Brand has to be one of my new favorites by the brand. Not only is it a dark grey wash that is very versatile, but they are also distressed. Those two things would have to be my favorite things right now. As these are a Summer style, I decided to do looks that will carry over from the warmer season to when the chill kicks in even harder. See the three looks that I came up with below.
This is the look that I would say works best during this time, at still the beginning of the Fall season. Just simple layers like pairing this flannel by MOTHER and a t shirt by R13 is all you need for a simple day-to-day look. Then to finish the look off Autumn staples like this Rick Owens beanie and some moccasins by Isabel Marant to keep the look feeling cooler from the usual.
This look here is one that is when it is starting to get colder, but there is still enough warmth to get away with wearing few layers. I paired the jeans with a graphic t shirt by TOPSHOP because I just love how much of a different vibe it offers to a look than a basic one. I then chose a heavy knit cardigan by River Island for it’s old timey feel. It has the look as though it was found in the closet of a grandpa, that I find appealing and always look for in sweaters like these. To keep the comfort going, I went for some Nike sneakers and a Rag & Bone hat to finish it all off and add a chic sense.
This look here is the one that would carry you on to the Winter. I just love the look of a fur coat and how it just elevates any outfit to another level. I chose this faux fur piece by Diesel because it has the oversized lengthy fit that I think fur pieces should have. I went for this hoodie by R13 to be layered underneath for the added warmth and as I think sneakers would be appropriate around this time, a pair of Chuck Taylors were the perfect choice. I then went for a pair of sunglasses by Ray-Ban to help protect the eyes from the blistering winds.
Camila Alves was spotted leaving her hotel with husband Matthew McConaughey for dinner in London. The model kept it casual with a pair of the Citizens of Humanity Avedon Skinny in Comos Light and some sandals.
I can see splattered bleach pairs becoming a trend again, especially for Spring. I think the detail would look particularly cool on some boyfriends and overalls because we have seen it on skinny many times over the years. It’ll be a refreshing look in those cuts, in my opinion.

Here is the new Holiday 2014 collection by Citizens of Humanity. The new collection shows the range with the three different capsules that are incorporated into the collection.
You can see Day, which has the return of their Premium Vintage collection, along with knits to embody the casualness of a day look. For Night, the brand went for pieces inspired by contemporary artist Sterling Ruby’s work. Styles like their popular Rocket were given finishes that are perfect to incorporate into your evening look.
Then to finish off the new collection, Citizens of Humanity decided to give a sneak of what is to come for Spring ’15 with Resort. There are easy styles, like their Corey, in powdery shades and acid splatters to give a lighter breath against the severe dark shades. Check out some of the pieces from the new Holiday collection below.
The trend of the raw hem is something that I do not see going away anytime soon. It will definitely subtle down for the Winter season, but be back again when the weather starts warming. 3×1 though, does not think that it is something that should be kept for the warmth.
They introduced the style to their line with their Low Rise cut in Night. They are a super skinny cut in their XX191 fabric, so you can expect these to hold their shape, and in their signature faded black wash. How many of you 3×1 fans are excited to try out this style? I can’t wait to get some sightings of them out. You can click here to purchase this style from the 3×1 website.
