The season we’ve been so patiently waiting for is nearly here… FALL! Compared to the others, I think it’s safe to say that this season is all about the staples – the Fall wardrobe essentials that we revisit each year: the perfect denim, the cozy sweater and the ankle boots. Since we already have these pieces in our closet, why not use this year to give them a little update? I mean, it’s 2018 right?!
One thing we can’t seem to get enough of is denim, where options are endless. So finding the “perfect” pair will be different for everyone. Moving into Fall, the trend of a high-waist returns. This is one style I find to be flattering for all body types. I’d be willing to bet that the majority of jeans and even pants in my closet have a high waist! To play off this 70’s influence, the wide leg also makes a comeback this season. If you’re wanting to keep it a little more simple, you can never go wrong with a distressed skinny jean. A brand I’ve really grown to love is Moussy (what I’m wearing in this look). I miss the days of true, thicker denim – not that stretchy “jegging” business – and Moussy by far has the best selection.
Moving on to the “feel good” find… the cozy sweater. The past few years I’ve gravitated towards the oversized, snuggly fit. While this is always a good option, I’m ready for something new. Instead of sweaters being oversized lengthwise, expect to see a little extra room in width this Fall season. The trick to wearing cardigans, sweaters and light jackets with a boxy fit is to have it be slightly cropped up to the top of your pants. Rock a cardigan like the one I’m wearing HERE with a white tee until temperatures drop enough to layer with trench coat!
Last but not least, the ankle boots. To be totally honest, I think I have an addiction… to black ankle boots. I may have 12 different pairs! You’ll probably think I’m crazy when I say they’re all completely different though. Although nothing beats a good pair of black ankle boots, it’s 2018 right? Got to change it up a bit! In a previous blog post, I’ve talked about how animal print is taking over this coming Fall. When my girlfriend at The Elizabeth Chronicles let me know about this snakeskin bootie I’m wearing, I knew these would be the perfect addition. The best part is that they’re only $48, so it just doesn’t get better than that! Actually it does for me at least… the name of the bootie is “The Brady”. I guess you could say they were made for me – hehe!
