COS is one of those brands I can always rely on for my wardrobe staples. Their clothing is modern and minimal but in an elevated way that still makes them stand out. I know I tend to favor bolder prints over solids, but there’s something about the architectural design and simple sophistication in COS clothing that makes me really appreciate and notice their garments. It’s a kind of understated elegance that’s seen in their attention to detail, strong silhouettes, and choice of fabrics and textures in the clothing they produce.
Well… it’s happened! Not sure where you guys are from but here in New York it went from mild fall temps straight into winter chill seemingly overnight! Now if fall is the season I love dressing for because I get to layer, winter is the season that really puts my layering skills to the test. The cold weather test, that is, because aside from style your layers need to keep you warm too. Luckily I’ve already got a head start on my winter wardrobe planning thanks to the new options for cold weather dressing now available at Walmart.

Fall is definitely my favorite season when it comes to fashion. The colder weather means you can play around with more layers and textures as you try to stay warm, which also means more opportunities to really flex your personal style. This fall, I’ve been really leaning into that streetwear vibe. Key pieces like joggers, hoodies, flannels, puffers and sweats are essential when it comes to putting together a cozy streetwear look.
Believe it or not, this was my third trip to Amsterdam! I went once in 2010 as part of my 3 month Euro-trip and then again in 2014 on a two city vacation that included Berlin. The occasion for this latest trip just last week was to celebrate KLM airline’s 100th year anniversary. Aside from indulging in the many pleasures of the city, it was also nice to flex some of my new fall gear which had been too warm to wear back in NYC. The combo of rainy weather and milder temps in Amsterdam made dressing a little bit of challenge but here’s what I wore and packed to give you some fall inspo as we head deeper into cozy season.
