We are back in that awkward transition period between seasons, where you don’t know if you’re going to be overwhelmingly warm or ‘froze ta det’. This lookbook aims to show you some ways to maintain your fall style while also staying cozy on those bitter November days.
We are lucky enough to have had the opportunity to team up with local clothing brand Figgyduff Dory. The clothing is inspired by Newfoundland culture and resonates strongly with our philosophy here at twowildtides. If you don’t have a clue what Figgyduff is, I can’t blame you! (hint: it’s a Newfoundland tradition, the definition is on Figgyduff Dory’s website)
Due to Newfoundland’s usual dreary weather this time of year, the images for this lookbook turned out a little gloomier than expected. As much as we all yearn for blue skies and sunshine, the reality is that we live in ‘Fog City’, and we might as well embrace it. Figgyduff Dory’s designs are versatile and fun, and styling them was an absolute blast. We cannot wait to wear Figgyduff Dory both at home and on our next adventure!!
For a relaxing evening downtown. Downtown St. John’s is the most iconic area of our city. We love strolling around and taking in the culture that surrounds us. This outfit features several key trends of the season: button-up skirts, velvet, burgundy, chokers, and knitwear. This rich colored velvet skirt paired with Figgyduff Dory’s Gold Sugar Skull Puffin top are a stunning duo. Throw on a knit cardigan to keep yourself warm!
For a day at school. Lazy people, rejoice! This outfit lets you look good with minimal effort. LBD’s are so easy to wear and never go out of style. This dress in particular, with it’s ‘cold-shoulder’ sleeves, is especially trendy right now. Wrapping a flannel shirt around your waist is multifunctional: looks great, and if you get cold you just put it on! Finish off the look with Figgyduff Dory’s ‘Some Sweet’ beanie. Five-minute outfit, timeless look.
For a more professional look. Some occasions call for a more dressed-up look. The ‘Brigus is always a good idea” tee from Figgyduff Dory looks so sharp tucked into a pleather skirt. Complete the look with some booties or heels and maybe a neat blazer or trench coat. We love how this shirt puts a Newfie twist on the timeless Audrey Hepburn quote “Paris is always a good idea”.
For the coldest days. The ‘froze ta det’ beanie is my favorite piece from Figgyduff Dory! It is chic, warm, and you can wear it with anything. On the most bitterly cold days of November, pair this beanie with the biggest, heaviest, warmest knit you own (my great-grandmother knit this one!). With your knit you can wear tights, jeans, leggings, or a cute skirt.
For adventures. Whether you are going for a hike, out to a hockey game, heading to the airport, grabbing food with friends, or just at school, every day can be an adventure. To me, vests scream adventure, but not as loud as the Sugar Skull Baseball Tee from Figgyduff Dory! Wear these pieces together with a pair of jeans and boots for the perfect fall outfit.
And that is a wrap on our fall/winter lookbook! We hope you can take some inspiration from these looks and maybe add some of Figgyduff Dory’s unique designs to your wardrobe.
