Look Book: Fall Central Park Rider

The pieces featured above come from Charlotterusse's new Proper English collection. The Proper English collection features and edgier take on traditional English and American styles. I am calling the look above "Fall Central Park Rider". Any one who lives in New York City or has visited NYC in the Fall will understand why.

The fun part about creating a "Look Book" post inspired by Charlotte Russe is affordability. Layer up with this $34.99 Ribbed Leather Jacket featuring matte faux leather, and heavy wide ribbed knit trim. The stylish fold over collar with buttoned tab, zipper front closure, two front slash pockets, pleat details, and an interior lining round out the styling ques.

My single favorite thing about the Proper English collection is just how aspirational the look is. Go for an equestrian prep look with these Skinny Riding Pants. These pants feature comfortable twill fabric, skinny leg, velvet panel details, and an elastic waistband. Sizes range from Small to Medium. The Inseam in size medium is 29". The rise is 8". This pant is also machine washable. The price is an inspiring $26.99

The most interchangeable piece of this look is the top. However I prefer to layer up with the same Cable Knit Top pictured above. It's styling is traditional featuring cable and ribbed knits, fold over cowl neck, and cap sleeves. The color to the right is Oatmeal but offers a few other colors including: Ink (Blue), Brown and Turqoise. Sizes range from Small to Medium. The medium has a shoulder-to-bottom hem length of 28". This top is machine washable and is sold at a cost friendly $24.99.

Although the picture above cuts off at the knees you can't do this look without a fierce pair of Riding or Lace-Up boots. I'd recommend that you tuck your bottoms into these Fur Lace-Up Boots, featuring crinkle faux leather, faux fur cuff, lace-up detail, side zipper closure, almond toe, 3 1/2" stacked faux wood heel, and a lightly padded insole. This boot boasts a 15" shaft height. The faux leather upper and rubber sole blend well into this boot. 218 Cognac is the only other color availible. Sizes range from Size 6 to Size 9. Pricing is a CR like $44.99

"Fashion Is Foremost Inspiration" but I know not everyone reading this will actually take up horse back riding. So if you're just a common city girl you'll need something to hold all of your essentials. Go for this Crinkle Stitched Satchel. It's perfect for lugging around your cell phone, makeup PDAs and all of your other must haves. Styling quies nclude: interior zipper and cell phone pockets. The dimensions are an ample 18"W x 10"H. Pricing is of course affordable; has it listed for only $19.99.


Top off this look; literally in this case with this one size fits most Wool Cabbie Hat. You'll look the part and feel the part for only $10.99. has a bunch of these hats so find the style that's right for you.

Now all you'll need to finish off this look are a few choice accessories. Glam up this look with some under stated jewelry, fall makeup, a scarf and a big watch. Try not to over do it however. You should aim to inspire not to shock with this look.
