East Meets West Fall Fashion

Casual fashion on the fringe of fall

Taking inspiration from a romantic bygone era of the American West and the photo shoot’s location — the iconic Budweiser Clydesdales’ stables at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery in Merrimack — the following equestrian styles are all available from shops and retailers right here in New Hampshire.

Vintage-inspired floral silk juxtaposed with the leathery brown suede of the cropped Scully jacket creates the perfect transition into fall fashion. Jessica shines in the Australian-made couture Zimmermann line.
