IT'S THE FIRST DAY OF FALL, Y'ALL. That means every forthcoming purchase of mine will 99.9% be a sweater, starting with the one you see above from Frank + Oak. The Montreal-based online fashion retailer recently launched women's wear, providing its own fine-tuned wardrobe essentials — coats, jackets, oxford shirts and wool trousers, to name a few — for the female set. Sadly, most of my top picks are already sold out in my size (like this shirtdress and these cropped pants), which means I'd better act fast on this sweater dress.
What initially caught my attention was Frank + Oak's cool layering choice — a dress over pants! — to display this particular piece. It's not exactly mind-blowing, of course, but certainly a reliable styling trick should I ever have no clue what to wear in the morning. Plus, its exposed seam details and high mock neck make this merino knit all the more appealing. Even if I sleep on making the purchase, I know I can easily recreate this look.
