Add Bite To Your Fall Look With Little Red Riding Hood-Inspired Picks
We can all but guarantee a happy (shopping) ending.
We’re 99.9 percent sure you’ve heard this Brother’s Grimm yarn before but, for posterity’s sake, here are the broad strokes: Little Red Riding Hood is on her way to Grandma’s house when the Big Bad Wolf approaches her and is all, “Hey gurl, Where you going?” After Little Red blabs, the wolf hotfoots it to Grandma’s house, devours the little old lady, dresses in her clothes, and awaits his crimson-cloaked prey who is promptly E.O.A. (eaten upon arrival). Fortunately, a huntsman ambles along who frees ladies and kills the wolf.
The story has inspired countless adaptations, from Broadway (Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods) to 1960’s novelty rock (Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs “Li’l Red Riding Hood”). Most recently, it was the basis for the 2011 thriller, Red Riding Hood, starring Amada Seyfried in the titular role and our perma girl crush, Julie Christie, as her beloved grandmother.
Whether you’re roaming the woods or the urban jungle, a pair of lace-up leather boots, like these A.P.C. ones ($495) in Nut Brown, are de rigueur this season.
Leave your dowdy lace pieces at Grandma’s house and snap up a totally on-trend blouse like this one ($295) in Cream.
Have a hunch you’re being shadowed by some bad actors? Keep malevolent spirits at bay with an Evil Eye Bracelet ($195) in Moonstone.
Channel the lady in red by way of an ice-skating rink with this feminine, fit-and-flared Coat with Biker Details ($143).
You know better than to talk to strangers but you’ll have a tough time fending them off when you’re toting a conversation-starter like this Wolfie Suede-Embellished Satin Clutch ($395) in Red.
A touch of sinister glamour, like this Rose Gold Enamel Claw Ring ($91) in Black, suggests you’re the kind of girl who just might stray from the beaten path.
