Today, we are launching Karmaloop in the application with a special give-to-get campaign for Wrapp Wednesday! If you haven’t heard of Karmaloop, you’re in for a trendy surprise — this American streetwear brand peddles some of the coolest and edgiest styles on the web. Up your clothing game with some Karmaloop gear! Here are our top picks for fall to keep you looking cool:
For the Guys
Patterns that aren’t Plaid:
Checks, stripes, et cetera: It’s clear that men have already embraced clothes that aren’t one solid color. Designers are building on spring’s tribal momentum, and pushing into ikats, paisleys, batiks, and other vibrant motifs. Dip your toe in the water with this Santa Fe Buttondown in Fall’s new neutral: Navy.
Nubby tweeds may give way to clothes that are a bit more contemporary and structured — defined by technical fabrics, unexpected layering, and vaguely futuristic fits. Less classic, but just as cool. Check out this structural leather jacket from LRG.
Next Wave Workwear:
American workwear has been thoroughly mined by now. Still, it’s possible that materials like canvas, denim, and corduroy will be used in more formal, work-appropriate contexts. All in stark contrast to their casual applications of (many) seasons past. Get into these fabrics with a cool waxed canvas tote.
Go Scandinavian! Fall is one of the best times to break in raw denim. For those new to this process, “raw” means that the denim has not been treated with any chemical or power washes to soften it in production, leaving the fabric stiff and highly pigmented. It’s recommended that you avoid washing raw denim for 6 months to a year, but the denim will reward you by becoming perfectly broken in to your body. Again, fall’s brisk weather is perfect for putting in hard hours on that denim!
For the Girls
The Leather Leg:
Leather pants are having a major moment — the look we used to make fun of on 80’s singers at karaoke night is coming back in a huge way. The key here is finding a cut that works for you — leather that’s too tight in certain places will be unflattering, so mind your backside, ladies. Blank NYC’s Ankle Zip Leather leggings are killer, and as a bonus, they’re also vegan-friendly!
Fall’s coolest shoes are the smoking slipper, and they’re flat-out chic. Fall’s pleasant weather leaves plenty of room for daytime strolls, and this practical and stylish shoe will be just the ticket. This Matiko pair plays on two of this fall’s trends: the loafer and fall metallics.
Mixed Material Jackets:
Everyone needs a solid fall jacket, but sometimes it’s tough to commit to one look. WIth fall’s biggest trend in jackets, you don’t have to: choose some mixed material outerwear for a modern look that’s super stylish and on-trend. This Stones’ jacket combines the edgy look of leather sleeves with a military-style body. Adding a utility piece can up the anté on even the girliest of looks.
Color Block Statement Bag:
We’ve been obsessed with color blocking for a while now, but we always arrive at the same question: how do people who don’t have statuesque bodies and limitless wallets take advantage of the bold color mixing we’ve seen on the runways? The answer: in a handbag! Always remember: size, shape, and details speak volumes in a handbag. Check this one out from Melie Blanco for a way to incorporate fall’s big colour green into the colour blocking scheme.
