The bittersweet turn of the seasons from the cheery spring and summer months into the heavier, dark days of fall and winter might have a certain vintage-loving gal or two down. For gone must be the delicate satin pumps or T-strap sandals that elegantly accentuated our floral dresses and breezy blouses. Fortunately, this only means that patterned tights, chunky knit sweaters draped with our grandmother’s pearls and perhaps a snug cloche are out for an incredible, crisp day full of pristine memories to be made for the cold.
We’ve listed the favorites for Fall/Winter ’17 that remain a essential part of outerwear that doesn’t have to feel trendy. For when it comes to vintage, classic is always in trend!

Our personal favorite! A versatile color and perfect chunky heel make any frolic into fallen leaves or snow-bound strut feel even more enchanting for the winter wonderland we find ourselves in. Not to mention, zip-up sides save time on the laces!
With a more modern twist mixing neoprene and leather, these couldn’t be a more edgy get-around pick for the modern sports maven like Jordan Baker.
