As hard as it may be to admit, the summer is almost over. Go ahead. Get a paper bag and breathe. Now take a moment with your gladiators and summer dresses and tell them just how much you’ll miss them. Done? Alright. Now, like a back-stabbing bitch, go out and get ready for fall.
But what should I buy? You may ask. Well, that’s where 17BFB comes in. Our next offline edition is almost here and ready to help. But just in case oodles of cash have unexpectedly appeared inside your wallet and the desire to shop is beginning to outweigh your will to live, we would like to sum up the season in one succint sentence:
This fall, dress like you live in the English countryside.
See the picture above? Pretend you’re there and add the following to your life:
waistcoats / whimsical details / slim fits / scruffy hair (men) / labradors / William Lockie lambswool sweaters / distressed leather / anything Stella McCartney / Hunter wellies / Barbour Flyweight Wax Utility jackets / crisp white cotton shirts / tweed / houndstooth / layers / glen plaid / Frye boots / natural fibers / Anya Hindmarch bags / MGB cars (I have a 1972 red convertible one for sale, if needed) / tea / scones / talk like Winston Churchill / refer to everything as “jolly” / channel Charlotte Gainsbourg (women) / channel Prince Charles (men) / add “Lord” or “Lady” to the beginning of your name / let your teeth go / email 17BFB for your very own copy of our next mini-mag.
Do all the above and the fashion empire will be yours. In the meantime, keep calm and carry on.
