An Autumn Day in Luxembourg
- October 09, 2016

We spent the day in Luxembourg visiting the old city and having lunch with friends. Unfortunately it rained most of the day, so we didn’t get too many photos of the city. But it served as a great backdrop for this great OcTieBer outfit.
As some of you know, during the month of October a bunch of amazing sartorial friends get together and share our neckwear ensembles on a Facebook group. It’s a time of year that I look forward to for inspiration and guidance in menswear. I adore wearing menswear and have amassed quite a collection of neck ties and bow ties. I will post more of my OcTieBer outfits later in the month.
Turban ~ Sarah’s Doo Wop Do’s
Collard Shirt ~ Land’s End
Fair Isle Sweater ~ Collective
Neck Tie ~ Vintage
Trousers ~ Doris Pant from Pinup Girl Clothing
Shoes ~ Naturalizer
Lipliner ~ Brick from MAC Cosmetics
Lipstick ~ Red Velvet by Besame Cosmetics
But for now, can we just talk about these amazing trousers!!!! As you know, I’m not a big fan of trousers and for the most part it’s because I’ve never found any that really truly fit me well and were comfortable. I’m much more comfortable in dresses and skirts. However, I took a chance on the new Doris Pant from Pinup Girl Clothing and I am pleasantly surprised at how much I love them. The fact that they come in plus size is, of course, a bonus for me. They are highwaisted, and have an elastic waistband in the back to ensure that there is no gapping. I did have to have them hemmed as they were quite long. I’m 5’6″ and they pooled around my ankles when I first tried them on, but I hemmed them up and now they are perfect. The pockets are a great size and placed really well. They are lined, which makes them a tad heavy, but they feel really nice and I think the heft helps them to lay right and move well.

I love how you offset the masculinity of the outfit with the intricate and feminine turban. It’s such a perfect picture.

Goodness, this outfit is stunning! What a harmonious, elegant marriage of autumnal hues, cozy textures, and beautiful tailoring. I’d wear every last element – tie very much included – here in the quickest of heartbeats.
Wishing you guys a joyful autumn!
