ATLANTIC-PACIFIC X HALOGEN // FALL 2020 BUYING GUIDE

The fifth – and final! – Atlantic-Pacific x Halogen Collection arrives on Monday! The Collection this fall is optimistic, colorful and is meant to be mixed, matched, and layered! The edited color palette features a few incredible pops that can be worn alone for bolder monochromatic looks (see here) or paired with neutrals to create inventive color combinations. And of course, there are those few special, editorial pieces that tie it all together!

The Fall Collection will launch on Monday, October 19th at 9am PST / 12pm EST! Select products may be available for purchase slightly earlier, so if you have your eye on anything specific, be sure to check in on my Instagram Stories as I will updating with swipe-ups as pieces go live!

For your sizing reference, I am 5’7″ and typically wear a size 0/XS in all of the pieces in the collection. I typically wear the following sizes in other retailers: 0 in J.Crew, 4 in Topshop, 4 in ASOS, and size 25 in most contemporary denim brands. As an FYI, Halogen generally runs slightly larger than brands like Topshop and ASOS. Hopefully the sizing information, pricing, and product details help you make more informed purchasing decisions. And, if you have any questions at all, please reach out in the comments section. If you have bought the collection in the past, sizing remains consistent with this Fall Collection!

A few other answers below to FAQs:

  • All apparel pieces will be offered in sizes 0-18 and XS-XXL with select styles offered in 20-24 and 1x-3x. There will not be a petite offering of the collection this season.
  • Nordstrom does offer international shipping (check here to ensure your country/region is included) but the product typically doesn’t load for international customers until about 24 hours after the initial launch for US customers.
  • While all product will be loaded by 12 EST on Monday 10/19, some product may flow to the site slightly earlier or slightly later (we try to avoid product flowing in later). Please check back here or on my social channels on Monday for any updates.
  • I’ll update the links below as product goes live!

THE BUTTON DOWN TOP // $79 (in Plus Sizes HERE)

Our best selling button down is back for Fall! This season, we’ve extended the sleeve to a full length, removed the covered placket, and kept the pointed collar, making this the perfect layering piece under all of the sweaters and outerwear in the collection. The button down top is available in a brown plaid, a navy heart print, and two of the prettiest pop colors from the collection, teal lapis and orange bright.

NOVELTY SWEATERS: THE ARGYLE // $79 (in Plus Sizes HERE), THE STRIPE MIX // $69

It wouldn’t be a Fall Collection without novelty sweaters. Are you an argyle or stripe girl? This exploded argyle sweater is available in a neutral option as well as a bright! The fit of this sweater is more boxy and cropped and it looks lovely back to high waisted pants or a swing skirt. The mixed stripe sweater features a puff sleeve at the top shoulder seem and a slightly longer body for more of a classic fit.

FAUX LEATHER TROUSERS // $99 (in Plus Sizes HERE)

Trousers? Joggers? Call them what you will – these just may be the pants of the season! They a perfect alternative to a legging or sweat pant for cozy indoor wear, but chic enough to style up and wear out and about. I’ve been wearing mine equally with sneakers as I have with heels – my new go-to pants for Fall! These pants are made in a super comfortable stretch faux leather (same as the kick flare from last year) and paired with an e-waist and looser fit leg they are incredibly comfortable. The pink are my personal favorite but the tan and black are perfect fall staples to add to your closet.

THE CABLE MOCK NECK SWEATER (stripe HERE) // $79 (in Plus Sizes HERE)

Cozy and colorful, this classic sweater has just the right updates, including a more form fitting fit and a slight mock crew construction that sits just a touch higher on your neck. This versatile sweater hits just at the top of your favorite denim and is available in five colors as well as an incredible stripe layout with nearly every color from the collection. If you are looking for one staple item for Fall that you can wear everywhere, look no further!

THE FAUX CROC FRIENDS: THE SHIFT DRESS // $139, THE MINI SKIRT // $99

They called me crazy for wanting to do the faux croc in teal lapis, but here we are! This faux croc material makes its way into two silhouettes in the fall collection, a more boxy shift dress (with pockets), and this retro mini skirt option. Both look incredible worn with the button downs and are available in a classic brown, and of course, teal lapis! 🙂 While I am typically a midi length girl, we took the hem up on these pieces so they can be easily styled with at the knee or over the knee boots.

THE LONG COAT // $225, THE SHORT COAT // $199

Classic coats – the long and short of it! As I mentioned in the past, I am somewhat of a coat collector. Each season I look for a few new bright hues (say that three times fast!) to add to my styling rotation. I plan on wearing the longer teal coat A LOT this Fall!

THE BELTED DRESS // $119 (in Plus Sizes HERE)

This dress is extremely versatile and looks incredible dressed up with heels or with an over the knee boot. The body is tiered and pleated and features more voluminous sleeves with oversized cuffs. The belted dress is available in a classic brown plaid, fun heart print, and a bold, bright orange. If you love our best selling button downs, then you are in luck, as this dress is cut from the same fabrication!

THE CROPPED VELVET KICK FLARES // $89 (in Plus Sizes HERE)

These stretch sateen cropped kick flare pants are equally great for Fall as they are for the Holiday season. They are the same cut as the faux leather kick flares from last year and look chic with a great flat, bright bootie, or heel. You can also pair this style back to the matching cable sweater and coordinating color outerwear for a chic monochromatic look.

THE ZIG ZAG SWEATER // $79, THE STRIPED CABLE SWEATER VEST // $69

These two novelty sweaters are not to be missed. The zig zag sweater is perhaps my favorite color combination in the collection – pairing the perfect light pink back to the bright orange shade. Sweater vests are such a fun trend for Fall 2020 and we of course had to create one in a happy stripe!

THE CAPE COAT // $199 (in Plus Sizes HERE)

One of my absolute favorite pieces in the collection, this cape coat feels editorial, yet is so wearable. You can pair it back to the matching skirt from the collection or wear it with a a great skinny denim and bright heel for a more casual-chic look. If you loved the plaid cape from last fall, you are in luck, this cape coat is the same cut/fit!

THE HIGH WAISTED FLARE PANTS // $99 (in Plus Sizes HERE) MINT HERE

You know how much I love a great high waisted flare pant. This style has been a constant in the collection since we launched in the Fall of 2018. This season we created the mint pant in a thicker stretch twill and the plaid option (flocked with velvet hearts) is in a slightly lighter weight material!

THE PLEATED MIDI SKIRT // $99

Taking a shorter skirt silhouette for a spin this season. Again, we took a few hemlines up this season to show off more of the colored tights that I love to wear so much. And, it’s easier to pair shorter skirts back to colorful, fun boots!

THE LEOPARD JACQUARD PIECES: THE DRESS // $149 (in Plus Sizes HERE), THE PEPLUM TOP // $89 (in Plus Sizes HERE)

Jacquard is perfect to take you from Fall to the Holidays. I fell in love with the unique color combination of the teal and maroon in this fabrication and wanted to add some easy feminine styles that felt just a bit more dressed up. The dress has a great puff sleeve that is shirred at the shoulder and has a nice, relaxed waistline and a hem that hit at the knee. The peplum top features the same sleeve, but a peplum that hits much higher. It’s an amazing piece to throw on with more refined denim and heels.

THE FLOCKED HEART PLAID BLAZER // $139 (in Plus Sizes HERE)

The heart print pant of course has a matching blazer…because you know how much I love a matchy-matchy look! We even have a coordinating GLOVE this season. You can wear this style back to an easy white blouse or add even more love by wearing it with the heart print woven top!
