Get the Rugged and Refined Look for Fall

Rugged and Refined for Fall
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

Love the gamine look but don’t want to look like a schoolgirl?  Get the look of rugged elegance by combining the girly, feminine separates with pieces that are a little rough around the edges.  We love the contrast in textures, styles, and silhouette.  Here’s how to get the rugged and refined look for Fall:

1. Start with a sophisticated base: a tailored blouse (don’t you love the tuxedo pleating?) and a pleated skirt.  The base is prim and proper.
2.  Layer on an outdoorsy parka to add a touch of ruggedness to the refined base layer.  We love the mix of colors (the army green with the sailor white and navy) and the contrast in detailing (oversized pockets and cord detailing vs. tuxedo pleats).
3.  Finish off the look with accessories that blend the sophisticated and the rugged: studded tall flat boots and a serious leather satchel.

How would you get the rugged and refined look?  Share your style with us in the comments!
