At the risk of sounding repetitive, fall came fast to the PNW this year. It’s been raining almost non-stop this month (sad face) and I keep reaching for long sleeves and warm coats to stay cozy. Thankfully there are beautiful cold weather styles dropping like crazy.
Today I’m sharing my favorites from Only Child’s Fall/Winter collection: – the Luzon Tie Top
– the Ryan Pant
– the Cardiff Trench (revamped in heavy wool!)
Read on to find out why I chose them, how I’m styling them, and how to claim your reader discount!
THE LUZON TIE TOP
A few years back I received the short-sleeved Luzon Tie Top from Only Child when I did a springtime partnership with them. Over the years, that became a celebrated and loved top in my closet (you’ve probably seen it many times on the blog). I’ve always liked wearing it because the knot detail takes it from a top to a styled top.
This year, Only Child revealed a new fabric choice for their long-sleeve Luzon Tie Top: a 70/30 cotton and silk blend. When I saw it in the gorgeous oatmeal color, I knew I wanted to try it. I am always a sucker for a top in this shade but add in the texture and soft drape and I’m sold.

FIT + SIZING: This top runs about two inches longer than the short sleeve version, and has a relaxed fit through the body. The sleeves are nice and long, which makes them easier to layer under cardigans or jackets. The Luzon Tie Top comes in XS-XXL and I am wearing my usual size Medium.
STYLING: The Luzon is a favorite of mine because I like how the tie detail adds visual interest to an outfit and defines the waist area. BUT… do you know what’s really fun about this top? You can actually style it 3 ways. First, the tied version above, second, a big traditional knot (like if you were putting a side knot in your tee, a la 1990) and you can tuck it in! See below.
GARMENT CARE: The Luzon Tie Top is easily cared for, you can machine wash in cold and line dry it. (I always use a drying rack.) Iron if needed.
FURTHER STYLING: The next time I wear this, I plan to try tucking it into high waisted jeans with a big, chunky cream cardigan! I also think it would be really cute tied with white, wide-leg jeans and suede ankle boots.
THE RYAN PANTS
I’ll admit, this style felt outside my comfort zone… at first. I chose the Ryan Pants because I always thought they looked cute, and I was looking for an update in the (lacking) black pants department of my closet. When I first tried them on, the volume freaked me out a little. But I texted my style gurus Jaana and Paige, and consulted my husband, and they all said they loved them. Does anyone else do that? Feel braver trying a new style with the backing of trusted friends or family?
FABRIC: The Ryan Pants come in four shades of cotton twill: black, eggshell, clay and olive. The fabric is soft yet substantial. It felt good right out of the box, and seems like it will get even better with wash and wear. If you have shedding pets, you may want to consider an alternative to the black, which seems to easily collect pet hair.
FIT + SIZING: These come in six sizes: XS-XXL, and I took my usual size medium, which fits generously and comfortably. They are loose through the hips and have a slightly tapered leg. The Ryan Pant has a two-inch waistband which fits comfortably and looks good too.
GARMENT CARE: These are easy wash and wear pants. Throw them in the wash on cold, line dry and iron if needed.
STYLING: Because they are loose through the seat and thigh, I think they look really good with tucked tops or fitted sweaters. But I am most excited to try tucking in my drapey, long-sleeved black button-up top for a faux-jumpsuit look! I love the idea of jumpsuits in the winter, but am not keen on the idea of getting totally undressed to go pee, so I think a faux jumpsuit (or even boiler suit style) would be awesome. You could also try styling the pants with a black Luzon Long Sleeve for a jumpsuit effect, tied or tucked!
THE CARDIFF TRENCH IN HEAVYWEIGHT WOOL
This fall a long, camel or cognac wool coat was on my shortlist. I looked high and low last year, but most styles felt too dressy and dramatic for my lifestyle. This beautiful, umber-toned jacket is the ultimate end to my search.
FABRIC: This year’s rendition of the wool Cardiff Trench comes in a new, extra soft, heavyweight wool. It’s pretty amazing and is now the thickest wool coat in my closet. The fabric is 70% wool and 30% nylon which means it has a lot of wool in it. The jacket is not lined, but the seams are nicely finished and the pockets have a silky lining.
FIT + SIZING: The Cardiff Trench comes in five sizes: XS/S-XL/XXL. I am typically a size medium in OC styles, and I sized down to a S/M in this coat after seeing Haley Tucker (owner and designer at Only Child) do an Instagram stories try on of the S/M. I prefer the traditional fit over the oversized fit. The coat is designed for layering, so even with sizing down, I can easily fit a sweater underneath.
However, the magical part about this coat is the hidden *magnetic* closure that keeps it together, making it so much warmer and functional! No more trying to hold it closed with a bag or belt!
GARMENT CARE: The Cardiff Trench is dry clean only.
STYLING: I am excited to wear this over just about everything I own this winter. Think: wide-leg jeans, slim black jeans, chinos, you name it!
