Pre-Fall: A Call for Action

I guess we know it's the end of the summer when you walk into a store and the new arrivals include leather jackets. It's officially Pre-Fall. How could it be August in just a couple of days? At any rate, just as other stores put their new offerings of leather and cool weather wear out around this time, don't forget (as Brandon has graciously reminded me) that vintage stores do the same right now. Get there fast for the best picks of vintage biker jackets, complete with the hardware a la MJ, and furs that will have you channeling Rachel Zoe.

Here are some vintage inspired looks that will help in your search:

Rag & Bone A go-to classic with a twist.

Dyed leather like this navy Proenza Schouler number channels decades past. A simple one like this can be dressed up, down, and all around.

H&M steps it up a notch and a stud or two with its Divided Fall 09 line.

To make furs appropriate (read: practical) for fall weather, opt for looks that are not full jackets. Think vests, shrugs, capes, stoles, etc. Prada Pre Fall 09
