Three Fall Sweater Looks that don’t Suck

Despite a drop in temperature, there’s no need for a drop in style every Fall.  Unless you’ve been relishing in the West Coast heat wave that struck last weekend, you’re probably preparing yourself for sweater weather and high heel booties.

While you’re recovering from the loss of your bikini and shorts days, the best cure is finding the perfect fall look.  I like to pair boring sweaters with sexy skirts, high heels, and a statement bag. (Note: On my really adventurous days I rock a pink vacuum just because I can.)

If you’re looking for something a bit more chill, (not everyone can rock a 3 in 1 Bissell), experiment with colorful leggings.  When you’re soul is saddened by the lack of sun, bring that cheerful color into your outfit instead! Take advantage of your highest high heel booties before the snow arrives.

When you’re transitioning between summer and fall weather, take advantage of those days that are in between.  Pairing a warm sweater with shorts and booties might seem like an unusual combo, but if you keep your upper body warm, that’s all you’ll need to pull off this fun, fashion-forward look! 

The fall time is notoriously busy! Throwing on a basic sweater and jeans takes two seconds or less.  But to make that quick and easy look, pair it with your favorite accessories!  Go nuts, wear those high heels that make you feel like Elle Woods circa 2001 and wear that chunky bag that screams fall fab!

There are a few major sweater trends to watch for this Fall.  V-necks, cut-outs, and choker sweaters are still all the rage.  If you can get your hands on one that’s soft and silky, sexy, and warm, don’t let it go!

Love,

This unisex fashion trend characterized by unpretentious clothes such as high-waist jeans, plain shirt, and classic leather sneakers, has been spiced up this fall! It was pretty much about trying to look average – however, it doesn’t simply mean getting the first white t-shirt out of your closet and pairing it up with another basic. An accurate research is required in order to find the perfect items. This fall puts a spin on normcore – it evolved into glamcore! Anonymous jeans and dull sneakers have been replaced with vibrant fur coats and oversized belts, as well as with luxurious headpieces and furry shoes.

2. Oversized Sweaters

A gorgeous oversized sweater with the most amazing knit is definitely a must-have piece for this season. Many people would agree that fall is a perfect season, simply because it allows them to snuggle their heads onto their favourite sweaters. That feeling of cosiness is the best. No matter whether you go for a turtleneck or for a regular one – you won’t make a mistake. If you think that you will look too bulky in it – don’t worry. Just choose the one with a slightly thinner knit in your favourite colour.

3. Boho Pieces

Boho chic is once again one of the leading trends of this season. It is characterised with magnificent embroidery, fringes and floaty clothes made of natural fabrics in earthy colours. Peasant blouses, maxi skirts and dresses, and fringed leather jackets are highly required in this trend. Also, poncho is an IT item for this fall/winter, since it can transform each outfit into chic and ultra modern one. Boho is definitely much more than just a trend that will pass sooner or later – it’s a state of mind that was typical of gypsies and their lifestyle.

4. Statement Jewellery

Bling has made a huge comeback this season, and it can be seen in the form of brooches and big earrings that were presented by the most influential brands – Chanel, Prada and Balenciaga. These will certainly add a touch of glamour to a casual outfit, and you can deliberately pair them up with aforementioned oversized sweaters. That’s a match made in heaven!

Bathing suit is no longer meant just for the beach and sun-kissed skin. Think of it as of another piece of your wardrobe, because you can really pair it up with some basic pieces for an ultimate IT look. Just focus on the materials that will help it blend in perfectly – such as leather and denim. Many designers have gone crazy about athletic wear, and came up with stylish versions of swimsuits you can layer. Match a sequin bikini top with a floor-length matching skirt and adding some eccentric jewelry for a glamorous evening look. One-piece suits can be combined with a button-up and flared jeans. Of course, latest swimwear sale is your way to go when it comes to this trend, because you can save a lot of money and get an extraordinary piece perfect for different outfits.
Numerous amazing trends are very popular this season, and it is up to you to choose the most appropriate pieces according to your preferences. The fashion industry definitely has no boundaries, which sends a message that you should play and have fun while choosing your perfect outfit. That’s definitely a key to success.
