How to Wear It: Women’s Black Forest Collection

Shades of gray, black and charcoal dominate our newest collection’s palette for wear-everyday looks

This season, we’re embracing a darker wardrobe. Our Black Forest collection has taken inspiration from the deepest, darkest part of the woods and crossing it with a rebellious, urban aesthetic for sleek, street-ready styles.

Get ready for your favorite pieces in black and gray to transform your closet into something  incredibly versatile and stylish. With textures ranging from soft moleskin to beautiful wool to durable leather, you’ll be able to experiment with these moody shades.

Crispy Afternoons

This fall’s peacoat trend has us reaching for our super versatile Kibby Mountain Peacoat in Charcoal Heather. The shorter silhouette makes this the perfect outer layer for a crisp fall day in the city or country. The heathered gray shade is clean and classic – a perfect foil to the darker gray hues in this ensemble.

Like it or not, turtlenecks are back. Good for us, since we like to be warm and cozy but still look cool. Enter the Mirey Brook Sweater in black. The details in this pullover are what set it apart from your standard turtleneck. For one, the knit gauge is just the right texture – it’s got a nice nautical quality to it, but the inky hue gives it a hint of edge. The vented bottom and roll-neck collar lend it a lived-in feel for a relaxed, effortless look.

Pair it up with black skinny jeans and our Beckwith Side Zip Chelsea Boot in Slate Grey Metallic. The boots have a gorgeous burnished metallic leather finish and small heel for a bit of lift. Don’t worry about slipping in wet weather  – these boots have superior traction control with our L7 lug outsole and Gripstick technology. We love this look because it’s got serious style without too much effort.

Gray Days

For those cool, rainy days it can be challenging to pull together an ensemble you love that will keep you dry. Let us solve that problem for you with our next look. Fashion meets function in our Rosebrook Waterproof Trench Coat with Hyvent Waterproof technology. Its breathable and durable double-layered construction guarantees that you’ll stay dry (and let’s face it, everyone needs a trench coat in their wardrobe).

For underneath pair up the Taylor River Boucle V-Neck Sweater in Charcoal Heather and our Sunrise Lake Denim. The grey-on-grey look is a sleek nod to a monochromatic palette and the sweater’s mixed-media construction with boucle/wool front and ribbed knit sleeves, back and waist detail adds rich textural detail.

Obviously, no outfit is complete without adding a great pair of boots and handbag . Our Savin Hill Mid Zip Boots are an excellent choice for not only looks but comfort. The anti-fatigue footbed means you’ll be pulling these on for long walks around the city or weekend expeditions, and we particularly like that the lining is made from recycled plastic bottles and the lug soles are made with recycled rubber. (It’s the little things.)

Our Cilley Leather Shopping Bag in Black is an ideal daily handbag for your busy day – it doesn’t hurt that this covetable bag has a slim silhouette and comes with a detachable pouch for when you want to pack light.

Our collections will always have our trademark craftsmanship and heritage. But expect us to change it up in styling and design—like in our mysterious, rebellious Black Forest collection.

Come and explore your dark side, won’t you?
