Style: Autumn in the East [E A S T]

Styling, PhotographyShannon Oteri

As the day air begins to feel more crisp and the leaves turn to gold, Autumn is just getting started here at the University of Delaware. This means the beginning of football games under the lights, eating a few too many apple cider donuts and going on hay rides with friends. Start dusting off your favorite Fall accessories, ladies and gents, because that time of the year is finally here! 

Welcome to our Mended Threads Photoshoot Blog! My name is Shannon Oteri and I am the creator of Mended Threads East. I am a Fashion Merchandising major here at UD and because I love fashion styling and photography, I figured this would be a perfect place to inspire others to dress outside of the box! Here at Mended Threads, our Fall uniform is hands down flannels; however, we know that sometimes it can get a bit repetitive. If you are interested in picking up some simple styling tips, keep on reading!

The Vest: a classic campus staple. This cozy, navy vest pairs perfectly with our Vinatta Flannel Dress and creates an overall effortlessly put-together look. When the weather gets chillier, layer this dress with a pair of tights or leggings to stay warm. Although this outfit consists of only a few staple pieces, it is a fashionable and foolproof Fall Outfit that takes only seconds to put on! 

Vintage Layers: This tousled, vintage inspired look is comfortable, casual and makes a sound statement. Our Greil Flannel looks adorable buttoned up with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans. The hand painted bleached details of the top compliment the fraying of the jeans. What ties the look together, however, is this ivory, vintage-esque cable knit sweater. Slip on a pair of heeled booties and a statement necklace to complete this school girl chic outfit!

Here in Delaware, the mornings are frigid but as the day progresses and the sun comes out, the weather definitely warms up. In this case, draping the thicker knit sweater over your shoulders will execute the vintage vibes without causing a heat stroke. 

Until next time, make sure you keep checking our Mended Threads Photoshoot Blog to get behind-the-scene glimpses from the shoots, to meet the creators and our Mended Models, and read about what trends and styles influence Mended Threads [EAST]!
