One of the best parts about fall, and about fall fashion, is layering. When it’s cooler, outfits can be more complex, and therefore more fun to put together.
This outfit is perfect for those iffy, in-between-summer-and-fall days. I started with a summery base of a peachy ruffle tank (Urban Outfitters) and comfy high waist chambray shorts (American Apparel). Underneath the shorts are a pair of lace netted tights (Charlotte Russe) to ward off that morning chill. I also added a basic khaki jacket (from Ann Taylor- yay for my mom’s hand-me-downs!) on top. To dress this up a little, I added the suede chestnut wedge boots (Target) and some gold heart jewelry (earrings- Urban Outfitters, bangle- Nordstrom). I topped off the otherwise neutral outfit with this rust colored hair piece. It’s a ribbon belt from an old shirt that I wrapped around a messy bun, tucking the loose ends in.
I am in love with overalls, and jumped at these black ones from Forever 21. They’re a classier twist on the trend and will be easy to dress up or down. My weather is still warm, so I chose a sleeveless button-up top from H&M. To make the outfit more fall appropriate I threw on this denim and leather jacket and black heeled moto boots (both from Forever 21). The jacket and boots also add an edge to the outfit to contrast the childish overall silhouette and girly flower print.
When the weather gets colder, I’ll add a pair of tights. Black ones will create a monochrome, streamlined look, or I may play around with some that are patterned.
