Bonobos Fall Style Challenge

It’s been a crazy past few months, and with the blink of an eye, we’re already in full-on autumn mode. One of the best things about this season is hands down, bundling up in cozy layers. Just while I’ve been thinking about my fall wardrobe (with a pumpkin spice latte in hand), men’s apparel company, Bonobos contacted me to participate in their Fall Style Challenge and style looks to accompany their new line of suits.

I’m fascinated by the a number of successful e-commerce retailers on the market today. Bonobos started out 7 years ago striving to create the perfect pair of pants with an impeccable fit (and no bunched waistbands!). That vision eventually expanded to dress shirts, denim, outerwear, ties, and of course, suits.


Seeing all of the options of these new suits, it doesn’t come to a surprise that the first one I gravitated to includes my favorite color: emerald green. Scroll down and you’ll find their Capstone Slim Tuxedo. The dark plaid pattern and tailored cut gives it a old world charm that works perfectly for the next holiday party, so I thought what better to pair it with than a LGD? In translation, little green dress (decked out with jewels, of course!). I found this beautiful Erdem piece, and paired it with classic silver accessories and black embellished Rochas pumps.

Talk about plaid on plaid! This men's look with the Capstone suit is casual-cool. The double pattern paired with a fun printed tie works perfect for a lunch date. For the women's look, I thought to play off the shades of blue and aimed for a floral pencil skirt. The statement piece is matched with a navy cashmere turtleneck and finished with timeless accessories. For a fun kick, I added a pair of Acne Studios metallic silver booties with a chunky heel.

These are my favorites, but there are endless options to choose from. Safe to say I'm a fan of online shopping (or any shopping of that matter) and love the concept of Bonobos mainly being a web retailer. And bonus, they actually also have brick-and-mortar stores aka "Guideshops". And no need to even carry a shopping bag out the door--the pieces that you buy would be delivered and en route to your home shortly after your visit. Pretty neat, right?
