The time to pull out those boots and sweaters has finally come! Finding the right combination between warm and trendy can be challenging, but can provide a great outcome if done in the right way. Remember, all of the below items can be matched with many of your staple fall/winter items, such as black boots, colorful or neutral scarves, and winter hats.
If you’re looking to revamp your wardrobe to fit this year’s best autumn styles, here are some suggestions to get you moving on the right track.
This can include furs, oversized, leather, color, etc. If going with a neutral colored jacket, jazz it up with fringe or other kinds of embellishments. Long overcoats or jackets provide comfort and coziness while still staying fashionable. The trick with this style is keeping the rest of your outfit simple. For example, a long, fur decorated overcoat over a simple black dress.
Plaid, stripes, or houndstooth are a great diversion from the floral prints of summer. Classic features never go out of style, because they go well with everything. Houndstooth is a great example for outerwear and other accessories such as hats or clutches.
This bold, beautiful color has been named the color of 2013 by Pantone. This hue isn’t just making its way into your closet, it’s popping up in furniture and other home accents. Emerald goes great with neutrals as well as other jewel tones such as sapphire and amethyst.
Leather has slowly been creeping into the fashion world (again) since the beginning of this summer. Going beyond the typical leather jackets and gloves, the trend has progressed to include shirts, leggings, skirts, and vests. Throwing on just one piece of leather accessory or clothing can dress up even the simplest outfit. However, shy away from the all-leather ensemble, unless you find yourself riding along with a biker gang!
The trick with this style is to not go over the top. If you want to go for all-over snake print, make sure it’s in a neutral color, such as gray or brown, in order to keep the look a bit more subtle. If you want to wear one snake print item, choose a top or bottom, and pair it with a solid pair or pants or shirt. This pattern can also be applied to shoes, such as (faux) snakeskin flats or boots.
