October is finally here—you can feel it and see it. It’s time to bust out the scarves, flannels, hoodies, sweaters and cardigans—fall is officially in session! And with it, the arrival of great patterns, colors and trends.
This week’s Fashionisto incorporated spring colors into his ensemble but took a fall spin on it as well. His white and light green Hollister Co. plaid button-up combined with tan chinos was quite the combination. Dressing preppy can be done in various ways. One way to approach the look is to go for the classic button-up tucked in with a nice belt. Another option is to combine the mentioned with a nice jacket/sweater.
One thing to point out is that sometimes having too much of a light color can be boring for the fall. The best way to add color is through accessories. For instance, adding a blazer or a sports coat is a must-do and quite a simple and basic accessory for a full prep look. For our Fashionisto, too little color was not a problem. I really liked his selection in adding some dark tones to his uniform. The vintage brown pieces like his belt, Fossil watch and Steve Madden shoes caught my attention.
Try the fall prep look and change it up a little. It’s fun, it’s fashionable and it’s appealing. Experimenting with different styles and trends for this fall should be on everybody’s to-do list.
Hint: If you can’t decide on what color to add to your combinations try adding a royal navy blue tone like from this watch. That specific toned color is trending and is fabulous. Remember you can keep things balanced by adding just the right amount of color. That being said, let’s make this season unlike the past and bring out the best fashion within us.
