Summer is in full swing, we have the insane heat to remind us. But that doesn’t mean we can’t think ahead to fall fashion, happily if you ask me. And with the arrival of September I am so ready!
After all it is what all the big designers do and it's never too early to plan ahead! I’m already seeing what trends are going to be coming in, and I couldn't be more excited about the prospect of fall fashion. It has to be one of the easiest styles to wear, and the most comfortable with all the cozy layers.
With that in mind, I thought I would share with you essential looks for the fall season.
Who doesn’t love an oversized sweater?
They can be so versatile because an oversized sweater can be worn as a dress with leggings or just as it is, leaving it open for you to style in a few different ways. Anything oversized is still on trend which is why a sweater will be an essential purchase for you this fall.
And slouchy necklines are also something to consider; they can be very complimentary for all body types!
I dread the day skinny jeans will no longer be a go to fashion item, mostly because wide leg jeans look horrid on me.
They work well at all times of the year, don’t they? Which is why no essential look would be complete without a good pair of skinny jeans. Thankfully, they are so versatile and easy to get hold of you can now obtain them in all kinds of colours, depending on how daring of a look you want. A traditional jean look will always be a winner and something that would go with anything.
Team these with an oversized sweater and you'll have a comfortable yet sophisticated look this fall.
Footwear is key this season and it’s why you need to think outside of the box.
Of course, you can still opt for a flat (my favourite), or even a court shoe but I would consider exploring the world of boots for fall fashion. Some can really offer a statement and the number ones to consider would be the over knee boot. Such a glamorous alternative look for your footwear and if you are unsure how to wear over the knee boots in 2016, there are some extensive insights and ideas online.
Accessories to bring your outfit alive
Accessories can really make an outfit, am I right?
I think they can transform a plain look and turn it into something that suits you. The more you think about the accessories, the more they can make your outfit work for the occasion.
Glitzy accessories like statement jewellery and watches will always work for the evening whereas toning it down and considering adding a hat and a more relaxed look will work great for something more casual.
Stick to this colour palette
Finally, fall fashion is all about the gold colour palettes for me, and I'm not alone in this.
Consider neutral tones of beige and brown and jazz everything up with hints of gold. This can work for your accessories, your clothing, and even your makeup look, which looks great with blue eyes (bonus). A nice gold and glitzy statement watch and some long earrings to bring it all together, and something about gold warms up a look while adding the glam.
I hope this has got you excited for fall fashion, even though it feels like it'll never cool down.
