Hi guys! I’m Jodi, the newest contributor to Spread. I’m super passionate about fashion and am excited to share my ideas with this amazing community. This season I am in love with Rag & Bone. The whole collection is amazing and so wearable, especially their amazing collection of Vests.

I fell in love with the Faye vest the minute I laid eyes on it. The peaked lapel and double breasted style had me hooked and I knew this would be a versatile piece in my wardrobe. Rag & Bone has out done themselves this season with a neutral colour pallet accented with bright reds, purples and oranges.

There is not an item in this collection I wouldn’t love to own. Most of their pieces are sewn in the USA which also appeals to my patriotic nature and sense of community. Their main focus is on classic tailoring and beautifully constructed clothing and they are constantly redefining urban style and how we dress.

What do you guys think? What are you excited about this season?

Cozy Street Style

The weather’s been changing quite quickly, which means I’ve needed to progressively add layers each and every time I go out. On relatively warmer days, you can get away with rocking this outfit without tights, but warm socks and knee-high boots are a must. Layering is one of my favourite things to do with outfits because its easy to experiment with different colours and tones. Choosing different variations of grey can make a profound statement, just as much as wearing an extreme pop of colour.

So have some fun! And if you want to learn more about any of these beautiful fall products, just click on the links below! 😘

Fall Inspiration: Amazing Street Style

Street Style Outfit

Click on the image above to learn more about her gorgeous cardigan!

October is a very visual month. The weather is changing, which means the autumn leaves are falling and you get a plethora of green, yellow, red and orange! 🍂 It’s an exciting season for fashion because it’s warm enough to wear loafers, ripped jeans and even the odd tank on a sunny day. However, it’s still cool enough to layer up in a comfy cardi, knee high boots and a fabulous hat.

This particular outfit is perfect for a fall day. A giant cozy cardigan, denim jeans and knee high boots that match an extremely chic Valentino tote. To top it off? A floppy hat that adds just enough juxtaposition from her cardi to focus on her perfect hair. Bonus points if the rope on your hat matches your lipstick! 😘
