We are beginning to transition into sweater weather. The leaves are changing colors and slowly losing their summer weight in preparation of falling off the branch they called home spring through summer.
Nature is changing and our outfit choices will be changing soon along with it. Here are some of my favorite looks that will be inspiring my wardrobe this autumn.
1. Professional Layers.
This outfit plays with layers in a more serious tone. Totally work and date appropriate, this outfit is perfect for the queen who is away from home all day, and into the evening. No time to stop at home and change? This outfit can be worn from the office to a night out.
I'd like to point out the natural palette as well; a quintessential trend to pursue in the colder weather. Again, this may be due to our innate want to match your outfit choices with the everchanging mood swings of mother nature. Matching this outfit with a red lip adds a hint of maturity, but not too much.
2. Weekend Errands.
Meeting a friend for coffee? Running errands, or attending a casual barbeque? This outfit is perfect for that. If summer and fall had a baby, it would wear this outfit. In the early weeks of autumn, you are able to get away with matching summer pieces with more fall appropriate pieces, creating a mashup of styles. This outfit in particular, has a bohemian feel to it, but adds a little more class and completion with the nude pumps.
3. Work hard, or play hard.
This outfit is as versatile as the first outfit. It can be appropriate for a casual date, dinner, class and in some cases, work or church. The length of this dress may be a little tricky to wear in some settings, but adding the oversized-cardigan and black stockings, downplays the sex appeal of this outfit, as well as the boot choice. This outfit is warm, loose and cozy- perfect for fall.
4. Still flirting with summer.
Unlike our second outfit, this fit is for the much warmer days of fall. The oversized tunic is playful, light and summery, but the length is totally appropriate for fall. Matching this top with a tapered pant, will keep your legs warm, and will prevent you from looking too summery. If you're looking for a more fall-inspired look try matching an oversized-cardigan with the tunic and opting for a pair of leggings or tights to wear instead of the pants with complimenting boots.
As you may have picked up, I love comfortable outfits that are free-spirited and statement-making; this outfit is just that. Although, this outfit may not be work-appropriate, it can be worn to class, or a casual gathering with friends. Graphic tees are not just for the summer time, but can also help you make a statement in the colder months. To make this look a little more conservative, trade the ripped skinnies for a non-shredded pair and try completely tucking in the tee, to make the outfit appear more put-together.
