5 Ways to Transform Your Fall Style
FALL IS A SEASON of decadence. A rich color palette creates a chic foundation, layers add sophistication, contrast trims lend a note of luxury, and ultra-soft knits are hallmarks of the season. While universally acknowledged as fashion imperatives year after year, these style tenants can all too easily blend in with the crowd. The secret to standout style is giving your fall uniform a signature twist. Start with these five style upgrades for a fresh, modern, trend-right look.
1. Create Dimension
Fall is a time to be a bit bolder sartorially. Stray from what’s ordinary and expected this season by updating traditional pieces like the little black dress. The intricate, feminine detailing of the Kobi Halperin Navy Velvet Lace Trimmed Knit Dress pops in a two-tone color that creates depth and draws the eye.
2. Go for Checkmate
Pattern play is one of the easiest ways to give an outfit interest and polish. This season, oversized plaid and houndstooth are appearing in new ways. The Belford Black Plaid Mock Neck Sweater pairs them together, creating a sophisticated look that dresses down with denim or leggings, and dresses up with wool slacks or a leather skirt.
3. Turn Up the Contrast
This season’s goes-with-everything handbag features an unexpected combination of color and texture—with the gloss of high-polished hardware. To create a signature look, opt for a design that works day to night. The Luana Italy Paley Mini Calf Hair Satchel goes beautifully from nine to nine with its always-in-style leopard print.
4. Borrow From the Boys
Every fall wardrobe needs a great blazer. This season, the relaxed cut is back in a big way. The Eleventy Grey Blazer with Inverted Lapels offers a feminine take on this timeless silhouette, with a neckline that features a lighter, more streamlined look than the typical boyfriend blazer. The longer hemline makes this a great layering piece that doesn’t feel as constricting as a jacket and moves with you.
5. Update a Staple
The scarf is the ubiquitous accessory of the season. Make yours something to talk about by opting for striking color and a pattern that tells a story. As it frames your face, look for one that complements your eyes and hair color. A favorite this season is the Bindya Tropical Print Purple Cashmere and Silk Scarf because its range of shades and soft, lightweight knit work for a variety of occasions.
