Just because summer is almost over doesn’t mean you should drape yourself in brown and black. Though you may feel dark and gloomy as the temperatures fall and the sun sets earlier, your fall wardrobe can serve as the beacon of light. Color is the trend this season. From jackets to dresses to funky tights, color should be incorporated into your everyday look! Maybe the new yellow pea coat you wear or the red pencil skirt will keep your spirits high. Akris takes fall color to the next level with this stunning mustard pant and jacket set. If you’re not quite comfortable with one hue from head to toe, break up the pieces and add a neutral top or bottom. Big comfy sweaters are always a must for fall, and now’s the time to look for some colorful ones to add to the mix. Take a tip from Lacoste. The red sweater is a fresh way of approaching fall fashion, as are the funky gloves and tights. Remember, sometimes it’s fun to be outside of your comfort zone!
With all of these fresh colors, it may be difficult to find the most essential item in your fall wardrobe: the perfect pair of boots. Finding great boots sounds like a breeze, but really, it can be a struggle. A great pair of boots should go with most of your outfits. It’s often a great idea to have two pairs of boots in your closet that you can rely on. If one doesn’t go with an outfit, the other will! Color is also important in boots as well. If you are a minimalist, and really only want to invest in one pair of boots this year, make it a neutral i.e. beige, grey, black or brown. One fun trick is to get a pair that is close to your hair color. If you have boots the color of your hair, you will look tied together from head to toe. And don’t be afraid to wear brown and black together! Frye boots are a great investment and are pretty durable for those few months of bad weather. If you’re the funky type, bring color to your feet and invest in some great, bright boots! These hot red booties from Givenchy make a bold statement and will be a fabulous addition to your wardrobe! If you’re not into color, but still want to turn heads on the street, go for some hot thigh highs! Check out Versace’s sexy thigh high boots. Very Va-VaVoom!
Don’t be afraid to step outside the box this season. Add some new to the old and brighten up your day-to-day wear. Find a few great pieces and go with it!
