The chilly weather isn’t wasting any time letting us know it has arrived and is here to stay. We all know what that means — closet rotation time! As you stare at the piles of clothes laying around the floor of your room, you must make the season-altering decision of what stays and what doesn’t. Today’s Fashionista has nailed the epitome of the fall look down to the T, so much so that we don’t even notice some of her summer pieces still lingering. Just because the bears are heading into hibernation doesn’t mean we can. If you’re struggling with what to wear to brunch with friends or your significant other once the temperatures drop, then hopefully this article will warm up some ideas for you.
The essential part of this Fashionista’s ensemble is her shirt. It is what takes the look away from being completely casual as well as establishes the arrival of fall. What makes the shirt less casual and perfect for a brunch date is the fact that it isn’t an ordinary button-down shirt due to the buttons being covered on the outside. That simple aspect combined with her rolled up flared sleeves turns the shirt into something much dressier.
When organizing your closet, you should also have a few pieces that range in the color tone of her shirt. Any tans or shades of olive green practically scream fall. Though duller tones are often associated with the season, this Fashionista clearly shows that your outfit doesn’t have to look as dead as the trees in the upcoming months. Her accessories and choice of jean color are what make her look stand out. That being said, a necessity for your closet will be scarves. Infinity, ruffled and knitted from solid colored to patterned, you’ll need them all. If her look isn’t completed by her shirt, it definitely is with the addition of her scarf. Aside from the fact that it has every fall tone on it, (could be useful when deciding what colors to keep and what to put away) the beautiful Persian pattern is what actually made me look twice. It gives her a much more intricate look and ties in with her matching brown shoes and bag.
Every piece on today’s Fashionista is a great representation of what a transition into the seasons should look like. Her wedged ankle boots are more than likely from the summer but is hardly noticeable in combination with everything else. Instead of approaching the 60 degree weather with dread that your outfit will now be covered by jackets, embrace the change and keep it going.
One Simple Change: To make this outfit completely dressy, try a laced maxi skirt to go from brunch to fancy date night.
