Mix and Match with MATCHES

The weather has been so up and down lately that it makes it hard to figure out what to wear. I love the idea of mix and match pieces that can work for different temperatures and MATCHES has so many great options. I put together three outfits that can work anywhere but that I would wear in NYC and Paris for those of you who are traveling this fall and winter. They include some of the shoes and statement earrings I recently posted so you can have an example of how to wear them too.

You can also save 20% off select items during the MATCHES Winter Wardrobe Essentials promo (minimum spend £200 / €200 / $250 USD) with the code WINTER20 at checkout. Valid on products in link only for a limited time.

I remember being on a press trip in Paris with a beauty brand and seeing an editor show up one morning with a sweater and chic wide leg trousers paired with sneakers and a coat thrown over her shoulders. It’s the first time I realized that a dressed up outfit with sneakers can take you anywhere while being comfortable for walking cities.

I would start with the Belted Wool and Cashmere Tailored Trousers that can take you from work to weekend. On casual days, pair them with Fair Isle Cashmere-blend Roll-neck Sweater on cold days or a blue Organic Cotton-poplin Shirt on warmer days.

Depending on the weather, you could top the outfit with the matching Cashmere and Wool Blazer, Double-Breasted Wool Tailored Coat, or Cotton Trench Coat.

It’s rained so much in NYC this fall that I definitely need to get a hat like this Wool Felt Fedora Hat. You definitely need a pair of gold earrings like there 14kt Gold-Plated Hoop Earrings this fall. I love the idea of carrying this Loewe Shearling Puzzle Fold Medium Tote Bag for colder weather instead of the leather version.

I bought these exact Mary Jane Velvet Ballet Flats and Owen Runner Suede and Canvas Sneakers from The Row recently. I plan to wear the Mary Janes on warmer days and the sneakers when I plan to do a lot of walking.

In order to make more outfit options, I would also buy the Wool-Cashmere Midi Skirt that matches the Cashmere and Wool Blazer and Belted Wool and Cashmere Tailored Trousers. I’d wear something thin like the grey Crew-Neck Cashmere Sweater. You could even pair the skirt with the Fair Isle Cashmere-blend Roll-neck Sweater on more casual days.

You could also swap out the blazer for the Double-Breasted Wool Tailored Coat, or Cotton Trench Coat. The Wool Felt Fedora Hat would also work perfectly with this outfit. You don’t often see charcoal grey bags like this Belted Suede Tote which is exactly why I would buy this one.

Different jewelry options include the Black Pearl and 18kt Gold-Plated Earrings and 14kt Gold-Plated Necklace.

Midi-length skirts look the best with boots like these brown Leather Knee-High Boots but you could certainly also wear the Mary Jane Velvet Ballet Flats when it’s unseasonably warm.

It’s going to be almost 80 degrees this week in NYC which is why I think this Wool-Blend Knitted Midi Dress would be appropriate for October and warm weather.

For the chilly mornings, choose the Cashmere and Wool Blazer, Double-Breasted Wool Tailored Coat, or Cotton Trench Coat. On wet or windy days, add the Wool Felt Fedora Hat.

When it’s a little chilly but not cold enough to wear a wool scarf, I love wearing a silk scarf like this Harlequin-Print Silk-Twill Scarf. They also add color to monochromatic outfits.

I would wear the 14kt Gold Vermeil Hoop Earrings and 14kt Gold-Plated Bracelet with this outfit.

On warm days, wear the Mary Jane Velvet Ballet Flats and Leather Knee-High Boots on colder days.

I love the taupey-beige color of this Grained-Leather Tote Bag paired with charcoal grey.

Hopefully this post of pieces from MATCHES will assist you in dressing for fall’s unpredictable weather.
