It’s the last day of October and in NYC we have still been running around sans coats and, on many days, even sans lightweight jackets. Fall and winter attire have been the furthest things from our minds with this unseasonably warm weather. But suddenly today, there was a brisk wind that brought with it a slight chill that made even those of us playing daredevil with the impending cold weather think, “I actually might need to cover my arms!” Contributor Gabrielle Royal’s fall shoot couldn’t have come at a more perfect time to hold our hands and gently, but fashionably, ease us into the cold weather abyss. Here’s fall fashion done four ways with Gabrielle’s help.
