Band of Outsiders Pre-Fall 2015

Bank of Outsiders Pre-Fall 2015

"How do you make it not summer, but not fall?" - this is the opening quote via WWD's review of the collection, said by Band's designer Scott Sternberg. And it hit me, I mean, duh. How does one really make it not summer and also not fall? What is pre-fall anyways?

I can firstly answer this question personally: pre-fall is the best season there is. It's the beauty of summer - beach days, sunshine - along with the better things about fall - the cool breeze breaking the heat, the beautiful sunsets - all before it gets too cold to enjoy. It's the perfect sweater weather! Sweaters worn with bare legs. Cuffed hems. Healed sandals. Cropped printed suits. Light denim. 

This collection summed it all up quite nicely now, don't you think? This collection is quite groovy, quite fun, light, happy. I tend to often state "this is what I'll be wearing come {enter season here}" but here realistically this is what I will actually wear. The most similar of pieces are in my closet - the sweaters, the jeans, the blazers... And I LOVE that this collection succeeded in inspiring me with what I already have. It's an awesome feeling. 
Negative side is that I won't be actually shopping Band of Outsiders for that very reason (not that I have all the money in the world for it anyways, but you know). What's missing is my desire to have these very exact pieces in my life. But oh well, it's beautiful nonetheless. It's all perfectly done. xx
