Style Tea| 5 Pre-Fall Basics
I could go into a whole spill about where I’ve been but then I’ll end up on my soapbox, so let’s just pass on that!
Now on to the fashion…
We officially have 14 days until the fall season begins. Now for us southerners, the weather doesn’t always agree with the calendar dates. However, if you stay ready, you don’t have to get ready. So cliché! I don’t know about you, but I am more than over this hot weather and geared up for cuffing season , I mean sweater weather (hehe). Focus on transitional pieces this season, those styles that can go from day to night with an accessory change and little effort. While prepping your closet for additions to your fall wardrobe, consider these basic staples to carry you through the fall and into the winter.
#1 Moto Jacket
An effortless, classic piece that should be a staple in your wardrobe. The leather moto is a splurge item. Invest in classic pieces! This style will never fade and is easily transitional. The essence of this DL2 jacket from Bloomingdale’s is in the details. A quilted finish is an edgy addition to a tee and jeans, and a chic addition to a midi pencil skirt and pumps.
A twist on the standard denim jacket is this Mango Acid Wash Denim Moto. A trend item, this looker is valued at a steal. Denim jackets are universal and can be paired with almost anything. Simple harem pants and booties will force the eye to focus on this outerwear basic.
#2 White Button Down
What is more effortless than a crisp, white button down? Some may consider this a must have for interview or work attire. Featuring clean lines and a blank canvas, this simple staple could make a huge statement. Pair with a structured blazer, boyfriend jeans, and a sky high platform for a relaxed chic look. Perfect for lunch with the girls or a movie date.
#3 Grey Jeans
Grey jeans are making a return this season and are sure to make their presence known once again. Reach for skinnies with light distressing or patchwork like these from Urban Outfitters. They are sure to add edge to any laid back sneaker combo.
This fall, tip down your personal catwalk in a fierce bootie. Strategic details make a simple and nearly blah piece of footwear more appealing. More and more designers are experimenting with zippers, buttons, studs, heel size, and other intricate attributes like these Nasty Gal beauties.
They can be coupled with skirts, leggings, dresses, shorts…the list goes on. Go get em’!
#5 Stacked Jewelry
Being an avid lover of statement jewelry, I never thought I would fall into the stacked jewelry trend. These simple staples have pulled on my heart strings. But the best incentive, they are very inexpensive. These Forever21 styles are all under ten bucks. Do I really have to say more?
