Beach babes, whilst you enjoy the last few days of the summer, in your favorite designer bikini, it is time to gear up and start putting your fall wardrobe together. Play around with these five style tips, which incorporate pieces you already have in your wardrobe, to take you through the transition:
Boyfriend Jeans are Your Best Friend
Boyfriend jeans are more laidback and looser than traditional jeans, making them extremely versatile and perfect for the days where you simply cannot figure out what to wear.
When all else fails, slip into a comfortable pair of boyfriend jeans, throw on a solid tee and don your favourite pair of killer heels. For an easy day-to-night look, swipe on a powerful red lipstick and add a bold statement necklace. Simple and sexy!
Denim on Denim
Fashion is all about breaking the rules, and what better way to shake things up than with an all-denim ensemble? If Olivia Palmero can pull it off, so can you!
The key to rocking this trend like a superstar is to ensure that both denim pieces are of different weights and washes (for example, dark denim skinny jeans with a loose denim shirt in a lighter shade of blue). Experiment with a few combinations until you find something which works for you.
The Turtleneck is Back
Everyone loves the revival of a nineties fashion trend, and we are simply overjoyed that the turtleneck is back in style in a fresher and more stylish avatar. The best way to avoid looking frumpy is to invest in a neutral coloured turtle neck (think black, white or beige) in a long and loose fit.
This allows you a wide range of pairing options so let your imagination run wild – black skinny jeans, fitted leather skirts, Aztec print leggings and more! Throw on a pair of stilettos to make the look come together and you’re good to go.
Take a Walk on the Wild Side
When it comes to the animal print trend, leopard print usually steals the spotlight, and with good reason too. A dash of leopard print is one of the easiest ways to add a trendy, edgy and sexy vibe to your ensemble.
Invest in a jungle-inspired statement piece this fall – think leopard print heels, handbags, flats, shirts, sunglasses, coats, scarves and more. Fierce!
Black is the New Black
When it comes to rocking an all-black outfit, you simply cannot go wrong. Black is sexy, sophisticated and simple, all in one go. Embrace the “all black everything” trend this fall, taking care to mix things up with varied textures and embellishments (for example, throw on a black tweed jacket over a black cotton dress and finish things off with black patent heels).
Pay careful attention to the fit of your clothes and shy away from drab shapeless pieces – a strict no-no! Use your makeup and accessories to add a splash of colour with bright lipstick or vibrant block heels. In the words of Wednesday Addams, “I’ll stop wearing black when they make a darker color.” Amen!
