What to Wear: Fall Wedding

wear fall wedding what to
The leaves are turning, pumpkins are showing up on doorsteps and romance is in the air. Before you know it, it’s time for that fall wedding that has been on you calendar for the last few months. What should you wear? Ditch the seersucker suit you work to that summer wedding and go for something a little heavier. We opted for the classic and affordable Express Glen Plaid Photographer three-piece suit. Layer a pink shirt, like the Tommy Hilfiger dress shirt, under it, put on a darker tie, like the Armani one pictured above, and stick on some dance-floor-worthy shoes (we opted for an Oliver Spencer pair). Now you’re all set to celebrate this special occasion!

What are duck boots (and which ones should you buy)?
A comprehensive look at duck boots
duck boots

Leon Leonwood Bean, the founder of L.L. Bean, was sick of wet feet hunting and noticed that farmers wore rubber boots out in the fields to keep their feet dry. As Mr. Bean did throughout most of his life, he worked hard to develop new ideas to solve problems. After stitching the bottom of a rubber boot to the top leather of a work boot, the first Bean Boot was born, and he sold his first pair in 1912 when he founded his brand.

The Bean Boot was initially called the Maine Hiking Shoe. It has quietly been a utilitarian mainstay of L.L. Bean’s product lineup for the last 100 years. In the early 2000s, those quiet sales would change. Students at elite prep schools started to pick up the Bean Boots as required parts to their wardrobe.

All falls down: How Kanye’s recent behavior impacts his fashion legacy
The musician has a massive impact on popular fashion that can't just be canceled

On October 3, 2022, Kanye West's clothing line held what will likely turn out to be its final fashion show. The shirt worn at the show by Ye, as the musician turned designer is know legally named, has become the centerpiece of a two-month-long onslaught of controversial behavior. The renowned rapper and producer has never been a stranger to controversy, often parlaying it to his benefit, but his recent actions have been in such poor taste as to be unacceptable. The problem that we now face as a pop-culture-consuming society is this: How do we reckon with Ye's legacy in the fashion world? His music career aside, Ye’s impact upon the fashion industry and the general style zeitgeist is monumental and cannot be simply written off. 

It's important to establish upfront that this is not a timeline of events. Enough metaphorical ink has already been spilled detailing Ye's rash and deplorable behavior over the past couple months. We'll touch on some of these events only to give context to his legacy in fashion. It's also important to acknowledge that Ye suffers from mental health issues. He has publicly acknowledged his bipolar disorder — even referencing it in an album title — as well as his unwillingness to cooperate with treatment. This by no means excuses his racist and antisemitic rhetoric, but it does provide a context for that and other irrational behavior.
