These boots will give you a touch of fall and sexy when paired with this camo jacket and HSFT wristlet.
HAVE SOME FUN TODAY - It’s usually chillier temps, cozy sweaters and fuzzy boots for many of us this time of year, but instead we’ve been fighting off a heat wave. Velvet, vintage inspired furs, blazers, 70’s plaid and belted coats are Fall 2017 trends that will leave us in a hot flash.
So how to get a seasonally appropriate without slipping on vintage denim cutoffs and flip flops? The transitional season is upon us, lets call it Fall-ish, but you still can find a way to infuse your look with key autumn-inspired pieces that will work for unusually warm days.
With the chilly temps I the morning and afternoon heatwaves, it’s best to work with lighter fabrics and layering pieces that can easily be taken on and off. Think cotton or light wool blazers, or a silk sleeveless shell under a classic black tuxedo jacket (Jennifer Aniston rocked this look just this week for a dinner in LA...). Pair the sleeveless jumpsuit with a blazer or add tights or leggings to a shirt dress. We love our HSFT slouchy tanks for extra comfort and style under any great jacket.
All About Them Boots
You can incorporate a fall feel with a great boot and it doesn’t have to be fur lined. Suede booties with laser cutout designs, or peep-toe with a block heel give you an easy seasonal feel. Choose a darker tone in a brown or black and pair with the season’s hot new comeback must have, the denim skirt or with dark rinse, high waisted jeans. (We love this pair from Mother Denim called “clean sweep”.)
You can even rock the mid-calf Frye boots you love to wear this time of year, just pair with shorter skirts or even shorts and keep the rest simple.
The Colors Of The Season
Take your pick from the fall palette of colors that are on trend for the season... Red was a major statement on the runway and is everywhere for fall. Opt for your dark denims and jewel tones like emerald green and deep maroon red; even if it’s in a lighter fabric or a shorter sleeve.
You can’t get more seasonally appropriate than a vest for fall. And while we usually would think to pair it with a longer sleeve or over a thin sweater, vests are a perfect addition to a sleeveless or short sleeve blouse or shell to pull off the feel of the fall. Erin Andrews of Fox NFL works the sidelines every Sunday during football season and is always stylish no matter the weather.
She recently posted her latest game day look on Instagram during the unusually warm weather, pairing a silk camisole, dark skinnys, and a sleeveless sweater vest with wide lapel. “I was battling this week on what to wear and still look not so summer,” she told People magazine. We call that a fashion touchdown. Nicely played, Erin.
The Hair And Now
Your best accessory is often your hair and if you haven’t already, it’s time to get your hair into fall style. Get that haircut to remove the dead ends courtesy of the summer weather and add some low lights or darker tones if you like to play with color. Think chestnuts, auburns and darker blonde tones to bring you into autumn.
The Denim Skirt
It’s baaaaack! The denim skirt has returned to its former place of glory, making a big splash late summer and into fall. Pair it with your suede booties or even your mid-calf boots, sans the leggings or tights just yet, and you’ve got that fall vibe, even if you’re rocking a t-shirt or light weight blouse. There’s no better way to bring a little fall feel to your look than with a denim skirt.
Save the scarves, beanie hats (like our new luxe cashmere HSFT beanie) and the sweaters for the colder weather, but don’t stop your wardrobe from stepping into the season, even if the weather hasn’t.
