August is here and that means amazing fall fashion is just around the corner. As excited as I am to rock my favorite sweaters and socks, I am taking full advantage of the last month or so of warm weather by wearing some of my favorite summer pieces. Pre-fall collections are a great way to play with the new trends, but keep them light and airy to stay comfortable in the hot weather.
When I saw BCBGMAXAZRIA‘s pre-fall 2014 collection I immediately fell in love. Soft grunge floral patterns and hints of fringe; this is any boho girl’s dream! The look adds some extra edge by pairing the pretty pieces with tall black heels and and hints of leather. I immediately knew I had to find a way to make this collection my own.
I love any floral maxi, so the base was easy. I opted for my floral maxi slip that has a grunge feel to it due to the color choice and pattern. I threw my black poncho over it for some added fringe detail and pre-fall layering. To incorporate leather I put on my trusty baseball cap and finished the look with platform clogs, a pre-fall (and fall) necessity this year.
I love fall clothes as much as the next Fashionista, but I don’t want to rush the trends too quickly. Instead of already layering up in sweaters and socks, try finding some pre-fall pieces that you can wear now with a soft maxi or mini skirt and you can wear later with trusty jeans and boots.
