ModCloth recently asked me to share my rendition of the perfect outfit for autumn, AKA The Best Season of the Year, so of course I jumped at the chance to do a little virtual shopping! Remember that Friends episode where Joey wore everything in Chandler’s closet all at the same time? I often felt like that while trying to recreate cool outfits I spotted on Pinterest/magazines, but with a bit of trial and error, I think I’ve finally gotten a handle on staying comfortable without looking frumpy :-) Here are my ModCloth building blocks for a polished layered look:

1) This basic black top is the perfect base layer for a fall outfit. You won’t have any added bulk from sleeves, and the faux leather collar gives it a little extra oomph.

2) Next up, this unfussy soft gray tunic – its swingy shape won’t make you feel like a stuffed sausage, always a plus in my book!

3) Top both of these pieces off with a big comfy cardigan like this one in a classic checkered pattern that immediately makes me think of fireplaces and romping through piles of leaves. An open sweater is much more accommodating when you’ve got a few layers on, plus it’s the only socially acceptable way to feel like you’re walking around wrapped in a cozy blanket all day.

There you have it! I hope you liked the outfit I put together, and be sure to check out the great selection of tops and cardigans over at ModCloth!

    I know this can be tough! Haha I was feeling quite frumpy yesterday and recently been purging my closet. Decided to go the French way of doing things. Less quantity but better quality. These looks are great and I have slip on sneakers just like this.

    With all the crazy leggings I’m accumulating, I’m in desperate need for more tunics – thanks Gloria!

  7. love your look gloria! i fell in love with lucite clutches last year but couldn’t seem to find any i liked other than the charlotte olympia versions {SO cute but SOOOO expensive}, so i’m pumped that the french connection one is under $100!
