By the time September comes around, fall’s catwalks have long been rolled up, but the season’s dictates resonate until spring blooms again. Fleeting, fickle fashion always bursts and fades: dramatic, powerful, quick—like fireworks. Style, however, is that slow-burning constellation in the firmament, a baseline that guides, steady and constant. Anyone with a wallet can slavishly limit themselves to one-label looks, but the confidence to weave together threads of love, life, and experience—Grandma’s cherished scarf, that quirky souvenir, an investment couture piece, a consignment find—is a rare talent indeed.
