November 6: Election Day
Can you believe it hasn’t even been 100 years since women received the right to vote in the U.S. (98 years, to be exact)? Make the most of the day, and wear your team colors to the voting center, with a nice bi-partisan pant in a blue, red and purple “it-print of the season” plaid.
This combo would be great paired with a bright, white blouse:
November 9: Go to an Art Museum Day
Like you needed an excuse, right? The 9th is a Friday, so kick off one of the final holiday hassle-free weekends left this year. No matter what style of art you prefer, there’s a way to channel that inspiration into your wardrobe. Here we used inspiration from the pastoral landscapes, including earth tones, and a pop of blue sky; inspiration from the Bauhaus era with simple, geometric references to the art-deco-like art movement; and inspiration from Asian art, dialing in the influence from handbag to shift dress.

November 13: World Kindness Day
What better way to let the world know you believe in kindness, than to wear your heart on your sleeve…..er, shirt and scarf. Formerly an icon for love-lorn teenagers, the heart grew up this season and was splashed all over the runways from Gucci to Commes des Garçons as a silent revolution in cultural consciousness. You’ll be pleasantly surprised with the empowering effect of seeing your badge of kindness in the mirror; it’s a gentle reminder: If you can’t be kind to yourself, how can you be kind to others?
November 17- National Take a Hike Day
Did you hear about the new study recently that confirmed not exercising is just as bad for you as smoking? So it’s time to get a move on, ladies! The good news is you can extend your life by incorporating exercise into your daily routine, and outdoor gear for winter has come a long way, stylistically. Here we chose a few winter essentials that are perfect for the great outdoors or schlepping around the city, and featuring the shearling trend.
