SUIT UP FOR FALL

Explore Sarasota’s new BOSS location

Fall is my favorite season for many reasons, but one in particular is for the chance to layer up.

Unlike the rest of the country where seasons can be felt by brisk breezes and falling snow, Florida is a solid 95 degrees nearly all year. That’s why anytime it drops below 70 degrees, I reach for my favorite sweater.

As Summer comes to a close, it's time to trade in your shades for sweaters.

While traveling in New York a few years ago, I came across a killer gray cable-knit sweater by BOSS, and ever since then, BOSS has been my go-to store for modern cold-weather favorites.

Earlier this month, I explored the newly-opened location at The Mall at University Town Center in Sarasota. After thoroughly appreciating the store’s sleek black and gray design, I came across one of my new favorite pieces: the “Musso-B” turtleneck in black.

Just like my cable-knit sweater, the “Musso-B” fits like a glove, and because it’s made of super lightweight virgin wool, it can be worn comfortably under a blazer or simply on its own. With it, I wore a gray trouser with a subdued plaid pattern to help break up the monochromatic look.

After snagging that find, I moved on to suits. I found this beautiful BOSS number in dark blue and paired it with a crisp white shirt and black loafers.

Even though I love the color of this suit, I still managed to add a little bit of black to it.

Although blue is a bit atypical for Fall, I knew it would be the perfect fit for my night out at The Capital Grille. But just to be sure, I added a simple black knit tie to complete the look as a subtle nod to the season.

Be sure to check out the new store at UTC and ask for Thomas or Michael. Tell them I sent you, and I’m sure you’ll be in great hands.
