5 FALL PIECES TO HELP ELEVATE YOUR STYLE!
Wanna know something fun? Fall is coming! hahaha I'm pretty sure you already knew that, but I had to start this post with one of my classic jokes. Sorry, I couldn't help it! I promise, I'll make it up to you with this post and I might even drop a few more laughs because laughter kills all bacteria. Oops, I did it again!😂
Really, I'm just trying to get pumped up for autumn. While I love layering and truly getting creative with my style during this season, I'm a summer soul or I like to believe so. That's why don't mind me if I drop a tear or two on your keyboard while you're reading this.😥
Ok...after this, I hope your computer is still working! Mine is still managing even though there is this loud sound, which is roaring or am I going a bit crazy?😆
What were we here for? Ohh, yeah, that's right...FALL FASHION!🍂
Everything revolving around this season is slowly but surely creeping in. While you get your pumpkin spice latte, light your delicious fall candle, I'll try to help you get your wardrobe ready as well. It's just as important!😉
So here are the five closet staples, which I think will not only elevate your outfit, but will bring you the spirit of the autumn season! Enjoy!!!
Faux Fur Coat
Faux fur coats are continuing to be a BIG trend this year as well... YAY! Honestly, I cannot complain about it. It's the best piece of clothing you'll ever throw on and immediately feel like a DIVA. Am I right or am I always right? hahaha Ok, I'll take it, I'm always right!
You can bet this furry and super stylish coat can 100% elevate your outfit. Imagine wearing denim dungarees, a sweater dress or even jeans+a sweater. Now, picture this type of coat on each outfit I just mentioned and you've got something extra special. There are so many options, so many chances and so many ways to style your fur coat. Yep, I recommend having more than one. One in black and another one in a neutral beige color. These would be great starters to rotate all season long!
Keep your high-waisted jeans close by, next to you because once you find your favorite pair, which feels and looks amazing, you'll end up creating your outfit around them. Plus, you know what? There's nothing wrong with that since a high-waisted pair has only positives. One of them being...it makes you look longer and slimmer. Add a warm crop sweater on the top and I can only see you smiling in this outfit. If not, leave it up to me to make you smile.
Even better, with autumn nearing you can rock your denim jeans with your favorite boots. I love going for shoes that have a wild print or some kind of funky detail. My favorite pair so far are velvet grey boots, which in my eyes shine every time I take a step. I can't wait to wear them soon!!!
Also, don't be afraid to find a pair of jeans a bit more out there. Meaning they can be distressed with cool embroidery, studs or something a little less ordinary. That would make dressing even more exciting! You can really take your style to the next level!
I wait for fall every year just to throw on a hat. Hats are my favorite autumn accessory! They're a most definite must-have piece if you want to look stylish in any outfit. My absolute favorites are the French berets and the baker-boy caps. Each year this time around, I add a new color or style to my wardrobe. That way my collection continues to multiply and I have a handful of options to choose from.
Are you a hats person? If you aren't you can always try changing up your hairstyle or even adding tiny hair accessories like cute pins and a headband. Experiment with it all and from there I'm sure you'll be able to find one that speaks to you the most. That's how I fell in love with berets and baker-boy caps!
Currently, the bucket style hats are trendy and will be throughout the fall/winter of 2020. They basically go with everything! I love the more street style, athleisure kind of looks with this type of hat. I've seen lots of cool looks on Instagram of girls who really know how to rock them. I might come up with an outfit wearing one in a future post to give you more inspiration. Stay tuned!
How is it even possible to think for a second that we can skip styling a blazer this autumn? We can't, won't and aren't willing to! That's why a blazer is an essential wardrobe staple. You've got the choice between cut slim styles to more cool, casual boxy fit with long sleeve blazers. And the best part is you CAN have both! Also, there are so many prints to experiment with. You've got tartan, stripes, geometric prints...really "never-ending blazer affair".
Whether you're dressing more formal for work or are going for a night-out, a blazer is the answer to fit both occasions perfectly. I love the look of a blazer over a white tee or even a cami top with a signature necklace showing. How do you style yours in the months of fall?
Last but not least, we've got the signature leather skirt. I'm obsessed with skirts and most definitely own more skirts than dresses. I love them and wear them all year long. During the autumn/winter months, the only thing I change is I adding a pair of cute tights underneath. Makes for one awesome combination!
Trust me, a black leather skirt can take you places. Forget about your car! hahaha
So, how do you style your leather skirt? Try with a chunky sweater on top, a wrapped denim shirt or even your coziest hoodie. These are the more casual options. For a more dressy event, I would pair my leather skirt with a fancy top with playful puffy sheer sleeves. These tops are still a favorite trend of mine!
