Fall is my favorite time of year, not because I get to cover up my least favorite body parts but because the fashion is so fun. I feel like having to wear more garments is nothing more than an opportunity to express myself with each piece. I am a girl who marches to the beat of her own drum when it comes to what I wear. I pay some attention to what is trendy and am mostly influenced by the music industry and my own creative thoughts when I’m getting dressed in the morning. I sat in my closet and threw together ten fashion rules that I will be following as the leaves begin to turn!
Pop that Color
Don’t be afraid to bring some color pop with you into the fall. The easiest way to do it is with a fun purse or tote! No more matching, be bold!
Give ’em the Boot
Booties are my absolute fav, I even sneak these in with shorts in the summer. I am in love with my Docs, they are timeless and I would wear them everyday if I could. Pair them with some fun socks for some added funk!
Be a Beanie Head
Beanies are awesome, not only do they keep your ears warm but they can make a statement. I love the beanies that the Supreme brand has to offer but also own some that I found for a couple of bucks at Target. I love pairing a beanie with some big hoop earrings.
Love the Crew
Crew necks are becoming. I have started a small collection, they are perfect with a pair of shorts on a fall day and can make a statement depending on what is printed on the front. These are an easy find at the thrift store, I recommend scoping out the men’s section. PacSun has an endless supply.
Skip & Shine
I will never stop wearing skippies. I found my favorite pair yet at H&M in iridescent for $12.95. These are also a great way to add some color pop, did I mention how comfy they are? Get them a size too big and wear them with some boot socks, you’ll be in love and stylish at the same time!
Be Bold with Gold
Gold is timeless and all that I wear. Add some umph to anything that you are wearing with a thick gold chain or a long chain with a charm. Check out your Grandma’s jewelry box or the jewelry case at the local thrift store and you will be surprised at the unique pieces that you will find.
Dream in Jean
Jean goes with everything, the only rule is to never wear a matching jean top and bottom. A dark jean jacket paired with a light pair of boyfriend jeans and your favorite T-shirt is super comfy and makes a statement. I have bought almost every jean shirt that I’ve laid eyes on! Rock a jean vest over a sweater for a super cool look.
Color Your Neck
Who doesn’t like scarves? Again, these are a great item to thrift. You can find tons for nearly nothing! If you are feeling super crafty, you can make your own by finding your favorite printed fabric at the nearest craft store and hemming the edges.
Warm Your Arms
Arm warmers are one of my favorite things to wear and help keep your arms super warm on chilly nights. If you don’t know where to find them, type in arm warmers in eBay…thank me later!
Smell like Leather
A good leather jacket is a must have! I recommend having a black one and a brown one to throw on over a sweater, crew neck or flannel. With a cute leather jacket, you can bring any outfit up a few notches.
Don’t be afraid to make your own rules, fashion is a creative outlet, USE IT!!!!
