When we start getting our favorite magazines and store catalogs with fall fashion previews, it’s tempting to hide them away in the midst of the summer heat. Although most of us don’t want summer to end, this marks the time to start thinking about our fall wardrobes. From boots to skinny jeans and even graphic T-shirts, be sure to get ready for an exciting season ahead.
This Fashionista knows how to prepare fall. After spotting her on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art looking absolutely chic in gray motorcycle boots, an English-inspired graphic T-shirt and skinny jeans, I could tell that she was beginning to integrate summer and fall trends. She told me the best way to prepare for upcoming seasons is to purchase basics, which always transition well from season to season.
Looking for fall fashion inspiration? Fall 2013 is all about new trends. Alexander Wang’s 2013 ready-to-wear collection embedded hues between charcoal and slate to create a gray neutral for the fall. Just as this Fashionista rocked her gray suede boots, you can too! My favorite boots are the Dr. Martens 1460 W boot. They are comfortable, edgy and durable.
In addition, think slimming sophistication. Step into your favorite pair of dark wash or distressed denim with a vintage tops. Celebrities like Jessica Alba look effortlessly chic in pieces that seem as if they came straight out of a thrift store. I suggest shopping for acid- washed designs, retro slogans or concert replicas from past decades.
So enjoy the last weeks of summer, Fashionistas/os! Before we know it, the temperatures will drop and the leaves will be falling. To prepare for the changing weather, keep in mind these style tips and start wearing transition pieces.
