Every now and then during the autumn months I get so caught up in my sweater, jeans and scarf ensembles that I sometimes feel I lose my feminine edge. There’s hardly anymore color, dresses and skirts are a thing of the past since they can’t keep up with Chicago’s bitter cold. Since late-August, anything floral ceases to exist.
Luckily, subtle ways do exist in order to stay true to a girly style aesthetic yet appease the fall season—take a que from ASOS’s fall trend guide or simply look to this week’s Fashionista for direction. This Fashionista’s look represented the perfect marriage of fall essentials and the feminine touch with floral leggings. She stayed true to autumn’s fundamental components by incorporating a chunky, oversized gray sweater with short, black motorcycle boots. She then showed off her girly side by pairing the ensemble with floral leggings, resulting in a happy medium between fall necessities and maintaining a girlish appeal.
In order to get this look, start out with a floral punch and then incorporate your fall staples around it. If you want subtle floral, try these oxford shoes with a metal toe cap or this double-wrap watch. To follow in this Fashionista’s footsteps and use floral more substantially, try this soft blazer or fitted pant. Next, choose your fall pieces such as a pair of dark skinny jeans, a circle scarf and a soft blazer to balance out the outfit.
This fall season make sure you parade around in the season’s best items but don’t completely abandon fashion’s greatest feminine finds.
