Though the New York heat wave might make us think otherwise, Fall is finally officially upon us. One of my favorite things about Fall? Fall fashion. Ask any of my coworkers and they’ll tell you that I started wearing sweaters way too early in an attempt to convince myself I can feel that slight crisp autumnal chill in the air. In honor of the official arrival of Autumn, I have decided to highlight a television character who embodies the ideal fashion (and beauty) inspiration for this season: Twin Peaks‘ Audrey Horne. By the way, if you haven’t watched Twin Peaks and are a fan of all things dark, mystery and quirky, I highly recommend binging (especially now that it is being revived).
So, without further ado, here are a small selection of the aspects of Audrey Horne’s style that will influence my own this Autumn.
Plaid is certainly a staple in Audrey’s wardrobe, particularly in the beginning of the series. Take a chance on this classic pattern (that happens to be designer-approved this season) and make it your own. I personally am coveting THIS super-affordable and modern take on Tartan from Mango.
From her lips to her pumps, Audrey is notable for sporting red — which happens to have been dubbed this season’s “it” color thanks to the FW17 runway shows. As shocking as this might be to anyone who knows that most of my closet is black, I am so glad that red is making a comeback. It’s such a classic, flattering color on anyone. It’s bold, just like Audrey. Who knows, maybe I’ll even venture out and purchase some red shoes myself — like THESE from Zara. One thing I know for sure is that red doesn’t just have to be limited to your outfit! A red lip is a tried-and-true classic look for a reason. I’m currently loving Rouge D’Armani in 400 by Armani Beauty, but you can never go wrong with any tube from MAC or Clinique.
While sweaters are certainly a staple of Audrey’s look, I decided to include them in a more broad aspect of her style: feminine details. Certain silhouettes, such as impeccably fitting (never oversized) sweaters, and details, like frills and lace on blouses, perfectly suit Audrey’s “femme fatale” persona. It’s important to note that what makes this style work so well is that these are subtle touches. This sweater and blouse from Mango are on my wish-list (and I bet they would be on 2017-era Audrey Horne’s too).
