Introducing: The Warby Parker Fall ’14 Collection

It’s one of my favorite times of the year again! And no, I’m not talking about fall. I’m talking about New York Fashion Week, where all of my most-adored designer brands will be showing off their latest and greatest collections for the Spring ’15 season!

You know who’s also showing off a new collection? Everyone’s go-to glasses brand, Warby Parker, who debuted its Fall 2014 collection just this morning. Featuring nine new shapes in a number of different shades—including Crystal (for a more modern look), Striped Pacific (for a rich, sophisticated effect) and Petal Tortoise (for a soft, earthy feel)—the collection has a lot to offer in terms of great style.

Available online and in Warby Parker stores and showrooms, you can pick up pieces from the new collection today (and starting from just $95!).

To celebrate the new collection, the folks at Warby Parker asked me to pick out a few of my favorite shapes and shades. And because no glasses can be chosen without an outfit in mind, I thought it would be fun to design a lineup of fall outfits around each pair. Take a look at my picks:

Sweater / J.Crew Ring / Marni Necklace / Ted Baker Booties / Maiden Lane Watch / Nixon Denim / Current/Elliot Lipstick / Lancome Clutch / BCBGeneration

I love the thought of rich hues like navy and deep charcoal grey for fall, especially when they’re paired in a casual-cool look that can go from a Saturday of shopping to a lazy Sunday brunch. Throw on a layered sweater with a pair of rugged-chic distressed denim, and dress it up with a statement bootie, crystal-drenched necklace and metallic clutch for a look you’ll never tire of all season long.

Practically made for the office, this black, white and gold color combo would look gorgeous when paired with the mod Crystal glasses. Add a ribbed sweater to a pair of tailored-but-loose trousers, then complete the look with luxe booties, a statement neckline, a simple shoulder bag and another touch of lucite for a modern look that will never get old.

For those fall weekends when comfort is key (but you don’t want to look lazy), throw on a printed dress and accessorize with heels, sweaters, bags and jewelry in earthy tones of tan, brown and burgundy (which couldn’t match the Woodgrain Tortoise shade any better!).

There’s something about tortoiseshell that feels so classically luxe to me, so naturally I would want to wear it with a look that reads feminine and polished. And what better way to achieve that than with a ladylike skirt, gilded accessories, leopard-print pumps and a swipe of deep red lipgloss?

September Want List

Happy September, everyone! I hope you all had a nice Labor Day weekend. I spent my days off shopping a little (though I didn’t pick up quite as much as I had hoped to), reorganizing our unruly closets and finally catching up on some reading. Though I would have loved to spend my days lying on the beach or at least hitting the pool, I think relaxing around the house was just what I needed to recharge for the busy month ahead.

And speaking of the month ahead, I’ve already got my eye on quite a few things I’d like to make mine in the coming weeks. Check them out below:

fall outfits, fall style, fall wardrobe, style, fashion, shopping, clothing, bag, work bag, suede bag, leather bag, banana republic, home, home decor, decor, furniture, bench, storage bench, boots, ankle boots, ankle booties, suede booties, club monaco, bracelet, jewelry, accessories, cuff, cuff bracelet, c. wonder, skirt, flared skirt, sweater, sweatshirt, uniqlo, jeans, denim, distressed denim, boyfriend jeans, madewell, shoes, flats, d'orsay flats, suede flats, black flats, lipstick, beauty, makeup, red lipstick, bobbi brown, dress, burgundy dress, fit and flare dress, nicole miller

Bag / Banana Republic Booties / Club Monaco Bench / Young Parisian Beds Bracelet / C. Wonder Skirt / Oasis Sweatshirt / Uniqlo Flats / Dee Keller Lipstick / Bobbi Brown, “Candied Red” Dress / Nicole Miller Denim / Madewell

I spotted this Banana Republic bag on Saturday while shopping and came this close to picking it up. Though I’m still weighing my fall bag options, this one is definitely high up on my list. Also high on that list: new fall shoes, including some suede ankle booties for casual weekends and a pair of D’Orsay flats for days at work when I don’t feel like wearing heels.

The flared skirt from Oasis and fit-and-flare dress from Nicole Miller would make good work pieces, too, while the cozy pullover and that pair of distressed boyfriend jeans would create a perfectly casual-chic number for one of the first crisp Saturdays of the season.

In the beauty department, I’m on the hunt for a slightly deeper shade of red, and my accessories collection is totally calling for that cobalt blue-accented cuff from C. Wonder. On the home front, we’re in search of a storage bench to put in the corner of our living room, and I adore the luxe feel of the velvet version above.

What’s on your must-have list for September?
