Fall fashion lookbook

too haute to handle chp. 2

All it takes is a step outside at six in the morning to know that autumn has kicked in. With the cooler weather comes the promise of new fall fashions. Subjectively the season with the longest list of new trends to offer each year, autumn 2015 is no exception.

Instead, I’ve put together a gallery of my favorite looks for the fall season. And because fashion clearly isn’t just for the gals, I coerced my older brother into modeling some looks for the guys too. We had fun running around the city and taking photos together, even if he might have been getting a little sick of posing in front of random bus stops after the third one. All the same, I think we got some good shots that showcase what the season features for 2015. I hope you’ll check them out and try some of this year’s trends for yourself. There’s no dressing for the

There’s some particularly embarrassing candid photos that would be too selfish of me not to share. Until next time: you look good, Parkway West.
