It’s quite hard to believe we are soon entering October. With wet rains and thunderstorms, here in the 852, it seems like the summer rain won’t ever go away. To prep you for the cooler weather that is yet to come, we list summer to fall pieces you should stock up in your wardrobe.
Male or female, young or old, anyone can rock these convenient slip-on shoes. Not too formal yet not too casual, it’s the perfect footwear for a stroll. You’ll notice how many different designs are out there in the market, but before you decide to go ahead and purchase a pair, it’s important to identify which forms you want depending on its utility and functionality.
Loafers can be easily identified as one of three categories; Penny loafers, backless loafers and loafer pumps/heels. Penny loafers are what you typically vision when you think of loafers with a backing, while a backless loafer, you guessed it, doesn’t have a backing fabric so can be worn more of as a slipper giving it a casual vibe while a loafer pump has small heels to give you that extra height. You can then play around with accents on the loafer such as tassels, leather kilts or horse bits.
Nothing shouts cute fall outfits like a good sturdy pair of booties. When it comes to choosing the right boots for you, you may be overwhelmed by all the choices. Here is a quick rundown of different styles to choose from. There are two things to keep in mind; the boot length and the heel height. You’ll notice how boots range in length from ankle boots to knee high boots. Knee high boots often provides more warmth but can be bulky to store in your wardrobe, while ankle length gives you more versatility when paired with clothes.
The heel length is up to you. If you’re looking to spice up your outfits for add an extra oomph to it, go for the higher heels or even platform heels for comfort! If you’re looking to give it just the right amount of height support without sacrificing the sore feet aftermaths, go for the midi heel. But our go-to has got to be a standard no heel military boot style like Dr. Martens to give your fall outfit just the right amount of edge.
Nothing says fall like tweed fabric. Because of its sturdy rough stitching between the material, yet soft touch, it compliments fall fashion nicely as it provides warmth and thickness to your clothes. We’re no stranger to tweed appearing in fashion items, there is no denying that Chanel is an iconic brand for tweed fashion. The weaving of the material mixed with different colors and texture makes even a simple skirt look timeless and classy.
This is not to say, you must break the banks for tweed fashion since a lot of affordable brands has been implementing the stitching with their unique twist to make it more widely available. From tweed bags to coats to skirt, it’s the perfect fall look for a date or an evening drinks with friends. Having said that, we can’t help obsessing over the tweed on tweed look – such as matching tweed set. (As if we haven’t said the word tweed for the seventh time already!)
How badass is a leather jacket? While prices may range from low to sky high, there’s a leather jacket out there for everyone. With this fall piece, you can let out your alter ego allowing you to look confident and sexy. Most of time because of its overstated look, you’ll probably come across less of a shade variety with colors sticking with darker or understated tones such as a classic black or mauve, but that’s not to say you can’t rock a bright red or a white leather jacket too.
Even though the leather jacket has a tough exterior, it all goes with how you pair it. Pair it with a maxi dress to give your outfit some edge or wear it over your shoulders on to of a cashmere long sleeves to give your outfit a more put together look. Because of the metal accents of a leather jacket, we love to pair the look with metallic accessories such as necklaces or rings!
