Layers of wool in different shades of the same colour family, ranging from black to charcoal makes for an appropriately subdued mood. The clean lines compliment this colour palette perfectly. The temperatures have been mild for this time of the year, so a turtleneck can easily replace a big scarf, while still feeling warm in the midst of yet another rainy december shower (like the one happening right at this very moment).
For balancing the monochromatic effect of this look, and keep it from becoming too severe, I like to keep the face fresh and flushed with a touch of pink.

One of the best part about the cold winter season is the cosy aspect of wrapping yourself up in layers of warm fabrics and drinking liters of tea to keep warm. I currently really like the idea of draping oversized shapes in different tones of the same colour – in this case navy wool coat, cashmere crewneck jumper and an oversized scarf I bought last month.
I’m currently living in my grey wool coat and black leather ankle boots.
Away from home my wardrobe was limited, which was something I really enjoyed. My favourite pieces became the ones with the least amount of colour and detail, like the small, leather crossover bag that lets your hands move freely, dark grey jeans and black cashmere or wool crewneck sweater. Simple and utilitarian. I am slowly moving away from navy and into the shades of charcoal.
Fall moodboard: cashmere knits, wool coats, and black.

I love these images of Daria, shot by Juergen Teller. The stark oversized silhouettes, the non-haircut and the make-up free face, everything is somehow perfect. Even the otherwise cosmetic colour such as pink compliments the sober minimalism of the garments. Let the fall begin.
