WHY I STOPPED: Pete's look is so simple, but it incorporates so many of the fantastic fall trends that we've talked about, even if this look works better in slightly warmer climates at this time of year (hint hint to all my SoCal readers). Yes, it's basically black on black, but there are so many small details that I want to point out. So let's get to it!
1) The Raw Scoop Neck T-Shirt: Never heard of a scoop neck? Well...now you have. These T's feature a super wide neckline, and I've had a thing for them for as long as I can remember. It's the kind of detail on a shirt that sets it apart from your average crew neck. A small difference? Sure. But one that makes a big difference without anyone even realizing it. (Check One Out Here)
2) The ASOS Necklace: Remember when I challenged you to try a necklace? Well I'm not letting that one go until you have, and I want you to send me pics as proof. Pete's necklace is from ASOS, but you can get yours anywhere. Just try it.
3) The Ripped Flannel: I'm so obsessed with this detail. We've already looked at a few different ways to wear flannel this fall, but this way is so unique and interesting and perfect. It's like a deconstructed belt, and it breaks up the black on black perfectly. It's also something you can probably create for yourself with a quick trip to the local thrift store. Just find an old flannel, lay it out flat, and start tearing.
4) The Boot/Cuff Transition: Just check this out! Pete rolls the bottoms of his jeans a time or two, and lets them rest inside his suede boots. It's effortless, as if that's exactly how they just happened to fall. But it's definitely the product of intention. I'm always looking for interesting ways to play with that transition, and Pete's definitely given me a new look to try.
