fall is officially here! rejoice rejoice~ the time for dark, rich colors and cooler weather, for apple cider and pumpkin spice, for layering with boots and scarves and tights and all that fun stuff!
since i’ve been a little absent this month (eh heh) i decided to put together four looks for you that, to me, just *scream* autumn!
and let’s start off with shades of brown…
tan ‘n’ brown can sometimes be boring if it’s too much, but not wearing it all over and mixing in some other shades works well to keep it from being too samey. tall boots, like these ones from reign, go *perfectly* with this shorter tee*fy dress (that’s out @ n21) and when topped off with a coppery sweater by foxes it not only is in a warmer, fall-appropriate palette.. but it looks super cute, too!
since the leaves are all starting to turn gold, i thought a deeper, darker yellow color might be nice for fall, too. yellow isn’t a color i wear often, but when matched with a pair of nice, neutral blueberry jeans (that are part of this month’s luxe box) && some nude colored reign pumps.. it’s not at all overwhelming or harsh.
rich garnet red is a color that is, in my opinion, the epitome of fall. it not only reminds me of the leaves changing colors, but of apples and cinnamon too. and you can *totally* get away with wearing shorts, like these from blueberry, in the autumn by layering ’em up with tights (from atomic @ c88) and some super cute flats (by reign, also @ c88). having longer sleeves, like this sweater from tres blah (which is part of this month’s luxe box) and even topping it off with a cute infinity scarf like this one from erratic will keep you warm even with bare legs!
and lastly, wearing grey ‘n’ black is appropriate for fall too.. like with this long emery top i grabbed @ uber, and black suede pants from ison from luxe box this month.. but it doesn’t need to be drab if you add in a few extra accents of color. it’s like that old cliche, matching your shoes to your bag, and i decided to wear these reign pumps && this c’est la vie purse both in brighter red to break up the darkness of the rest of my outfit. and i think it looks casual and put together without being dreary.. like the weather can sometimes be in autumn!
so! four looks, all fall-themed in style && color. i love this season both for the weather and the food, but most importantly.. for the fashion!
