Dressed head-to-toe in American Apparel, I couldn't have come up with a more suitable name for today's look than "New Americana." I do consider this "Made in America" manufacturer, a maker of classic & staple garments that can stand the test of time. I also believe that pleated skirts and turtlenecks are something that will never go out of style, as the pleated skirt trend re-emerges every season. Classic yet modern, Americana meets new.

Needless to say, I love fall and I happen to especially love it in New York. The blue skies clashing with changing colors of the trees can make even the coldest of hearts feel warm with romance of this particular season. This is also a season when I usually go for retro aesthetic. Well... most of the time. (wink wink) However, I can't really deny the gloomy days either. It is a known fact that New Yorkers cherish every sunny day like it's their last. Which furthermore, proves my point that with the right transitional dress, no season can take you by surprise. Just like this fall-friendly Zara dress I bought a while ago. It is feminine, yet it doesn't look like you're trying too hard. On the super cold days, you can simply wear it with tights and boots and still make it work.
