Fall is finally upon us here in the city. Despite the fact that the official beginning of fall was a few weeks ago, it has still been quite warm here. As we are approaching the middle of October, the temperatures are starting to drop, which means people are digging their jackets, scarves and tights out from the depths of their closets. This transitional period can been exciting as it allows you to be able to layer without having to cover your entire ensemble with a heavy jacket.

As soon as there’s a hint of crispness in the air, people immediately trade in their brights and florals for dark muted earthy tones and plaid. During the fall, colors such as army green, maroon and burnt sienna are typically the ones you will find in store. This season, I have seen a great deal of mustard, not a color you see people wearing on an everyday basis. It’s a good condiment for food and a good way to bring color into your fall wardrobe.

This Fashionista centers her entire look around her mustard shift dress. While her dress is the main spotlight of her outfit, she complements it with simple neutral accessories such as her brown watch, black tote  and black heeled ankle boots. She opts for a pair of opaque tights. Not only do they protect her legs from the wind, but they also elongate them.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Have fun and add some color to your outfit, whether it be in your clothes or accessories. Here in New York, you will see many people wearing head-to-toe monochromatic outfits, which don’t get me wrong, looks very chic, but with this dull dreary weather approaching us, a pop of color can instantly bring life to your outfit.”
