This season is all about layering different colors, textures and prints. It’s about having fun with your outfit while making sure you stay comfortable and cozy for the unpredictable weather that comes with this time of the year.
PSA: I present to you, the “Lazy Girl’s Guide” on how to totally rock your wardrobe this fall.
Patterns and prints to spruce up your outfit game
While patterns and prints make some people nervous, they are an excellent resource to use when trying to spice up your outfit. Some recently trending pattern and prints include checkers, plaids, dark winter florals, reptile motifs, abstract scribble prints, graphic pop art prints — the list goes on and on. I can barely catch my breathe over it! When putting together your ensemble, I encourage you to jump right in with these patterns, but remember: balance is key. Make sure the patterns work well with the rest of your outfit.
Flares and culottes to make a bold statement with pants
Flares and culottes are bottoms that are sure to make a statement. Culottes should be rocked with a sleek shirt simply tucked in, paired perfectly with a pair of heels. For a comfy day, try tuxedo shoes and flat booties. The flares are a bit more flexible; they look awesome with a refined cardigan or a loose and slouchy lightweight sweater.
Chunky knits, long blazers and dyed furs are a must have for the season
Why? Well, because looking stylish is important, but staying warm is essential. Colorful furs (both real and faux) add a bold pop that will liven up any outfit. Furs can instantly glamorize a casual outfit. Playful furs are also popular amongst the accessories this season.
Whimsical bags to add personality to your outfit
Whimsical bags are are also a way to standout from the crowd. They have arrived in a variety of shapes and materials including lux fur, exotic prints, metallic and funky animal designs.
Minimally designed statement pieces are a timeless trend
They continue to carry over. Skinny scarves are the new perfect way to accent an outfit, especially in a contrasting color or print.
Thigh-high boots for a simple way to look seductive while keeping your legs toasty
They can instantly elevate a basic outfit to the next level. The combination of over-the-knee boots and a long-sleeved sweater dress creates a subtle allure while revealing just the perfect amount of skin.
Remember, layering and balance are key. For colder temperatures, my motto is “the more clothes, the better!”
