Sun hot by day, evenings are cool by night. The weeks are flying by. Fall is almost upon us. With it, a new season of fashion begins. Layering re-appears on the scene. The hottest fashion trends of fall 2020 are starting to emerge on the streets in the northern most cities.
During the transitional months, layers are critical to get you through the drastic climate changes of the day. As such, they’re my first grab off the shelves and out of the wardrobe. This season, AS by DF has caught my attention with their luxury fashion staples that play off of the major fall fashion trends.
How I discovered AS by DF
Sent a few pieces as gifts for my Instagram fashion blog, I couldn’t resist but to share more details with you here. As a luxury fashion blogger, I’m introduced to so many brands I may have otherwise never discovered. For the best of the best, it is my passion to share them with you.
AS by DF’s unique placement in the fashion market is in the quality of the craftsmanship and subtle interpretation of trends.
Their pieces are quite in – but not so trendy that you won’t be able to wear them season after season. Their refined versatility and long-term wearability of luxury fashion pieces makes AS by DF a new brand worth getting excited about.
Discover layers of luxury and how to incorporate a couple of key fall pieces into your wardrobe in this AS by DF review.
About AS by DF and the mega fall fashion trends in their new collection
Feel fierce, empowered and ready to conquer the world. Leopard print, tie-dye, lavender and cocooned knitwear are just a few of the mega fashion trends for fall 2020 that you’ll catch in the collection.
Designer Denise Focil launched the brand from a single focus – making the most perfect leather jacket. Her great attention to detail, exquisite Italian leather and luxury quality materials is evident in the line.
Since then, the brand has expanded to include knitwear, tops, dresses, trousers and even a capsule collection of handbags.
AS by DF workwear essentials
Imagine a collection of soft suede jackets, rich leather essentials, and contemporary feminine pieces that fit into your everyday style.
As a Creative Director and fashion blogger, workwear essentials are an important part of my fall and winter wardrobe. AS by DF has a great selection of blazers, dresses, jumpers and blouses that are great basics appropriate from day to evening wear.
They are timeless as they are chic, and make great selections for a capsule wardrobe if you’re cutting back on your essentials. I chose a pastel button down blouse with faint tie-dye markings. It’s an elegant way to rock the trend without going overboard.
AS by DF leather jacket quality
There’s nothing quite like the touch of supple leather to the skin. As the core of their brand, it was no surprise that the quality of AS by DF leather jackets was exquisite. My selection was a blush suede blazer. It’s a timeless silhouette in a beautiful pale pink suede leather.
Sensual and soft, the grey cotton lining also makes the blazer a versatile staple. Roll the sleeves up for a more casual look, or leave them down for office wear.
The craftsmanship is excellent, which can be seen in the smoothness of the stitching, lining, and every aspect of the details. My eyes have also been glued to a few of their classic motto jackets, peppered with unique pastel shades you just can’t find anywhere else.
How to wear AS by DF
While the sun is still out, I’ve layered my AS by DF leather jacket and tie-dye blouse with neutral biker shorts. It’s cool, comfortable, and a fun way to wear their pieces in a more casual way.
As fall approaches, the blazer will be a soft essential to layer over dresses and vintage denim looks. If you’re looking for more ways to wear your essential button downs, you can check out my dedicated Pinterest boards for ideas.
You can wear a basic like this with shorts and minis now, then with your favorite denim, trousers and leather leggings in the cooler weeks.
AS by DF review recap
