The Fall Fashionista: Best Wool Fashions Fall 2011

The Fall Fashionista ~ Westminster Jacket by Pendleton

By: Mandy Seymour, Managing Editor

If you want to turn some heads this Fall, we have a recommendation for you!  Become a Fall Fashionista.

The Best Rated definition of a Fall Fashionista:  A woman who is a head-turner.  Her fashion-sense matches the inner confidence that drives her to make a great impact on her world.

To be a Fall Fashionista, what you need is stylish, iconic clothing that flatters your figure and keeps you warm on cool days!

One of our top pics in Fall fashion is Pendleton.  Pendleton is an iconic American company which produces high-style wool fashions that will last you a lifetime.

Our top Fall picks:

Vanessa Jacket

The Vanessa Jacket

The Vanessa Jacket is a flattering, plaid jacket which gives a spirited zest to an iconic style.  We like that this jacket style is based on Pendleton’s archives but the vintage flare combines with a modern chic to give a perfect jacket to enhance your wardrobe.

Elin Paisley Cardigan

The Elin Paisley Cardigan is a lightweight cardigan that adds a touch of warmth to a cool Fall day.  The paisley print gives whimsical flare to this cardigan.  What we liked best: This cardigan has a zippy personality yet it’s professional enough to give you a serious edge.  It’s versatile, great for wearing in the office and when you’re away!

Westminster Jacket

The Westminster Jacket proved to be an all-around favorite.  With classic lines and a just-right length, this boiled wool jacket is surely the best wool jacket available for Fall.  What we liked best: This jacket is fully lined and fully flattering.  It has a “just right” fit, not too big, not too small, to show off your flattering Fall fashionista figure!

Rating: 5 Stars!  Best!

Editor’s Pick: Pendleton Womenswear

Mandy Seymour in Pendleton Madison Sheath

I recently enjoyed the “privilege of wearing Pendleton”.  I have a little red dress by Pendleton, the Seasonless Wool Madison Sheath, that has become an editor’s favorite for business travel.

I took it on a business trip and it was the perfect outfit.  I wore it to my meetings during the day and an elegant dinner at night.

Here are some pics!

Enjoying Pendleton Leisurewear

Mandy Seymour and Sweetie Pie Pendleton Mesa Tee

I live out in the country in Stagecoach,  Texas.  This past weekend, I wore a great leisurewear shirt from Pendleton, the Mesa Print Tee.

I spent time with my 33-year old horse, “Sweetie Pie”.  He was a gift from Santa Clause when I was 5 years old, hence the name!

The shirt has an elegant design yet it is casual and durable enough to wear while riding or during a day in the outdoors.
