It’s almost fall and it’s time to wake up and smell the pumpkin spice. Labor Day is next week and that leaves very little time to get up to date with the fall fashions for this year. Lucky for you I’ve put together this handy guide that will cover all your bases and keep you looking good throughout the season.
Don’t step on our blue suede shoes… or our suede skirt… or the bag. Suede is set to to be the material for the fall and no one denies it. A suede skirt is the hot item and is a surprisingly versatile piece. I love this list of tips for how to style your skirt and the tons of things you can do with it. If you hurry you might be able to take advantage of a Labor Day sale before the temperatures drop and you find yourself both literally and figuratively out in the cold while everyone else is rocking a sweet skirt.
Duh, it’s fall, of course people will be wearing sweaters, but I’m not talking about the ironic christmas sweater you got at the thrift store. Oversized knits are back and if you like being comfortable when it comes to fall fashion then you’re in luck. I’ve been pulling some inspiration from this site’s articles on sweater styles and other fall fashion essentials. It recommends combining your sweaters with a tough pair of leather boots that are perfect for kicking back or kicking butts.
3. Earth Tones
They might not be the most exciting colors in the box but they are definitely some of the best looking. Many fashionistas are predicting a bellwether season for brown, especially when paired with warm metallics and rich reds. Brown is beautiful and sometimes it’s good to change things up from the always-in-vogue black dress. Cozy, retro-chic is the name of the game for this season so prepare for an onslaught of “fresh avocado” and “harvest gold” for this year’s fall colors.
The bell-bottom cut that refuses to die is back again. The ’70s couldn’t kill it and neither could the early 2000s. Now flared pants are back and admittedly look great with a sophisticated pair of high heels or comfortable, classy wedges. This post on trends from this summer that are still good for fall shares a strong point that you should make sure people can see your feet under your jeans. If not, it looks like you have no calves or ankles and instead have two tree trunks for legs. Nobody wants to see that.
5. ’70s Style
It’s not just flares that are making a return, but there’s a full-on resurgence of ’70s fashion hitting the racks. If you’ve been looking at this list then think about what you get when you add suede, knits, flares and a bit of Boho chic? That’s right, your mom’s wardrobe. While there are plenty of terrific designers offering their own takes on ’70s style, there’s a good chance you might have a hip lady in your own life willing to part with her vintage skirts and sweaters. Ask nicely and you might save yourself a lot of money while also being the most stylish girl on the street.
