When the air starts to get crisper and we are forced to pack away our favorite pair of high-waisted shorts, it is safe to say that we all know that fall is on its way. Although summer is quickly fading, that in no way means that we must trade our bright summery colors for earthier ones that seem to be more in tune with fall. Rather, in these first few weeks of fall it is important that we embrace these bright colors while we still have the chance. Simple jewelry and shoes are the perfect accessories to wear with bright tops, pants and scarves, as to not overwhelm the brightly colored ensemble.
Personally, a scarf is my absolute favorite accessory. Whether it is silk and gives off a vintage impression or a knitted infinity, the scarf can be the focal point of any outfit. It gives any Fashionista/o the chance to add their own sense of personal flare. A scarf is also able to either dress up or down the outfit that they are paired with. With a more formal dress, you can add a cotton scarf to add a casual vibe or with an otherwise simple outfit a scarf can add an element of vibrancy and interest. The right scarf can be worn year round, whether it is a sweltering 89-degrees out or a snowy winter’s day, the right scarf can be worn no matter the season.
This Fashionista knows how to transition to fall, yet keep the vibrancy of summer alive. She chooses a more casual look pairing a magenta three quarters sleeve crew neck shirt with turquoise tailored skinny leg pants. She then uses her scarf to pull her outfit together, by incorporating the colors of her top and pants within her Lilly Pulitzer scarf. She wears clothes that are appropriate for fall, but the warm colors represent summer. This Fashionista chose to keep her shoes and jewelry muted, with tan Tory Burch flip flops, a large black-faced Michele watch and a cable classic bracelet with blue topaz (perfectly matching her pants). She takes a basic top and basic pants, and pairs it with a matching scarf and muted jewelry to create a casual look that any Lilly Pulitzer prepster would swoon over.
Looking for the perfect scarf for this fall? Look no further than J.Crew! This store has a myriad of scarves, and any Fashionista/o will find what they are looking for within these seemingly endless of choices.
