The Transformative Power of Fall

With its transformative beauty in nature, the Fall season extends its enchantment to the world of fashion, making it a beloved time of year for dressing. As the leaves turn golden-red and the skies shift, a magical evolution happens in our wardrobes, presenting an exciting opportunity for self-expression through style. The chance to layer and experiment without the constraints of sweltering heat allows for inventive outfit combinations and plenty of individuality.

It's as if Fall gives us the freedom to rediscover our personal style and elevate our wardrobes with lightweight outerwear and effortless wearability. Embracing the season's inspiration, XCVI brings you a collection of sartorial delights to prepare for Fall.

From nature-inspired color palettes to sumptuous fabrics, the first autumn drop has arrived, offering quintessentially rustic—yet unapologetically modern—looks to ride into Fall’s sunset in style. Earth tones embody the autumn spirit like no other, with colors like eggplant Belge, red-brown Rufous Pigment, and clay beige Tanglewood diving headfirst into the season. Bravo Corduroy has a starring role, exemplified by the Uzma Jacket Dress in Belge. This two-for-one piece features double buckle straps and pockets, a cinchable hemline for a bubble look if desired, and a classic antique brass, central two-way zipper. Contrasting ribbed panels ensure XCVI’s renowned fit with plenty of wearable comfort. Wear Uzma alone with some boots or layered over separates like jeans and a turtleneck. For a lighter color that still packs plenty of punch, Uzma is also available in tawny Tanglewood Pigment.

Corduroy’s reign continues with the Major Blazer in Rufous Pigment. Two buckles on each sleeve and flapped pockets throughout add detail to this classic menswear-inspired style that’s meticulously cut for curves. A single button waist closure and contrasting ribbed panels in the back make this piece ideal for both cozy days lounging around and busy office hours alike. Go for tonal accentuation and pair up the Major Blazer with the Araxie Legging in Tanglewood. This slim, sturdy, seemingly equestrian-inspired ponte roma legging features two small snapped pockets and flattering seaming throughout to provide your best fit ever. Add some ankle booties and a leather bag and you’re all set for a seasonal look that stuns.

Neutral-colored pigments bring some fun patterning into the repertoire with prints like Quirk Wash. An ombre beige and brown netted tie-dye, Quirk stays true to its namesake, subverting the rainbow expectations of what tie-dye looks like. On the jersey Lexonne V-Neck, Quirk Wash adds some wearable, artful movement to your look. Pair Lexonne with the brio poplin Frenda Pant in rich rust Belge or calm Tanglewood. With a classic wide-leg silhouette, Frenda features two front and back pockets and a stretchy pull-on waist that relaxes this slightly dressier trouser. Add a pop of peppy pink and pair Frenda with the Rexel Tank in peachy Firefly Pigment. Ribbed side panels and a shirred body upgrade this staple piece with flattering, subtle detail—perfect for layering underneath autumn outerwear like the Wolley Jacket. Available in both Rufous and Tanglewood pigments, Wolley brings a slim fit to this cargo piece. Details like double pockets, antique brass hardware, and buckle tabs on the sleeves add tactical functionality while maintaining a sleek, sexy silhouette. Wear open over the go-to top of your choice or style Wolley zipped up and worn as a top.

For a suited ensemble, match Wolley to the Marconi Cargo Skirt in either Belge or Tanglewood. Marconi’s cinchable bubble hem, midi length, chunky pockets, and contrasting panels maximize the unique qualities in this piece and ensure functional details at every turn. A foldover stretch jersey waistband keeps you comfortable and gently held in while maintaining the option for a high or mid-waist rise, depending on your desired fit. Marconi is customizable, full of character, and cute as can be!

For an added underlayer, try the Sorren Turtleneck in Belge as a unique alternative to wearing black. Lush camari crepe knit brings soft and lightweight comfort, while ruched sleeve openings and style lines ensure a slimming, sleek fit.

In Tanglewood Pigment, the Vesuvio Jacket brings a semi-cropped look that’s adorable worn on its own or as a layering piece over the Sorren Turtleneck for some color contrast. Back shoulder jersey contrast, pleated front pockets, tabbed three-quarter sleeves, and a cinchable bubble hem add plenty of flair to this lightweight blouse-jacket, which pairs seamlessly with the Marconi Cargo Skirt in the same hue. Add some leather boots and gold jewelry and you’re all set to turn heads!

In textured waffle-knit Valentina Thermal fabric, the Delsi Pullover is plushly delicious. Peachy Firefly Pigment keeps things light, while a classic crew neck cut, angular seams, and a sweatshirt-esque fit feel as good as wearing pajamas all day long. Wear Delsi with a neutral bottom like the corduroy Rockne Pant in Tanglewood or Belge. A slightly flared, wider leg, raw-edge hem, and front pleats beneath deep-set pockets bring a sweatpant-like appeal to this trouser, bridging a dressier look with casual comfort and some vintage influence. Add some tennis shoes or booties in a complementary earthy tone and your look captures Fall coziness with flying colors.

We’re back to the start with another jacket-dress, this time named Rufino. Fitted yet stretchy, this two-in-one piece features fresh elements like two zippered pockets on top of faux flap cargo pockets, along with drawstring-pull sides for some cute ruching, and a double zipper for even more customization options. Belge brio poplin and terry contrast offer lightweight, snug coverage for a piece that truly screams Fall.

Immerse yourself in Fall tranquility with nature-inspired earthy hues that feel like the grounding energy of desert sands or relaxed days by the lake, and enjoy the ultimate season for fashion by treating yourself to some brand new finds. Among XCVI’s new arrivals, style and comfort merge smoothly, combining classic silhouettes with brushes of all things rustic and comforting. Pumpkin spice, cozy campfires, and brand-new clothes are just a few of the things that make autumn the time of year we know and love so dearly. This Fall, inspire and be inspired and let your wardrobe take the lead in celebrating this energizing, dynamic, and incredibly beautiful season.
