Leaves, Pumpkins, Shirts, and Skirts

Never did I think shirts and skirts would be so fabulous together. It’s amazing how many different themes they create for the many unique, yet all fabulous, women out there. Here are some shirt and skirt combos that let you express the inner chic you love to bring out the best you possible this season. If you’re inner chic has a ‘hippie’ feel, go for this first outfit, it will bring good vibes. A necktie blouse and suede mini is 1960’s inspired and made even more retro with platform sandals.

For a look that rises above the rest with an unexpected twist, pair a leather skirt over a long shirt-dress. I think this is such a unique outfit and shows that you’re brave and daring. It looks best with heels and the buttons of the shirt-dress unbuttoned at least two or three from the top to give it even more of a free-spirited look.

If you’re more laid back and a classic outfit is more your style, an oxford shirt and pencil skirt are the perfect match for you. Keep in mind that this crisp and professional look is best with sling back pumps and neutral colors, because it is fall after all. (Wink face).

Want an outfit that will show off your silhouette? Recreate Kim Kardashian’s look with a bodysuit and fitted, knee length, high-waist skirt that will give you a  body-flattering, curve hugging outfit. Not only does this outfit (that I’ve tried myself), bring out those curves, it mostly brings out your confidence. Let’s show them what we’re made of this fall! Source for pictures

A New Comfort Level

Lets face it, dressing up usually isn’t really all that comfortable with tight clothes that are too warm and high heels that hurt by the middle of the day or night. So don’t go for the synthetics, try breathable, natural cotton, light weight enough so you don’t suffocate and become a sweaty mess. Choose dresses that have pockets so that you can put a few belongings in them such as lipstick, cellphone, or money. This could help lighten up your clutch or purse.

Hopefully you’re excited to go out with friends or to your event! So wear happy colors, no one ever said you can only wear black when dressing up. And you don’t have to be in heels either. Flats are just as dressy and go great with any fancy outfit in open or closed-toe style. If you’re going for a strapless dress or top, try one with built-in corsetry so you’re not constantly pulling up your outfit. You don’t want to deal with that especially if you’re going to be out and about for a long time. Hopefully these tips will help you get around with ease the next time you deck yourself out. Go ahead, make a change and be comfy in your own skin!

Jeans and Boots

It’s fall and all you have are flared bottom jeans that aren’t going to fit into your boots. Just what are you going to do to fix this fashion emergency? Well, it’s pretty simple, in just a few short steps you’ll have boot wearing jeans in no time.

What you need to do is roll your jeans up once, then tighten them up to skinny jean shape by rolling the bottom forward and putting a sock on top of your folds. This way, your jeans will be the shape of skinny jeans at the bottom and fit perfectly into your boots. 

This little trick can save you time and money as you will no longer have to go out and buy new jeans just for your boots. Now you can just spend your shopping money on new boots! Unless you’re wearing last year’s, which is perfect. Be creative and resourceful, and you will find a way around being able to wear what you already own and love. 


Fall Fashion Police

So I’ve been telling you about a lot of the fall fashion from 70’s fringe to the two purse trend; but don’t forget, the fashion police are always around the corner with looking for items that are no-no’s to help keep you up to date!

The first broken fashion rule I’d like to mention is an open sweater on top of another over the head sweater. This combination is way too bulky and makes you too warm when inside. Just try a jacket over your first sweater and you’ll be warm, I garantee. Another no-no is avoid wearing your skinny jeans cuffed along with your leg warmer socks and boots. One or the other is best, it just makes things too complicated!

I have seen small belts that go over bulky coats and sweaters! Now I know the look you’re going for ladies, but a thick belt around a thinner sweater is much better for your lovely silhouettes. Now here’s a little twist, I always hear of people saying that black and brown can’t go together, but now they can! Don’t be afraid to wear those cute brown boots with your favorite black leggings or pants. Come on, it’s fall 2015!

Fall Fashion Fringe

This fall 2015 season there’s no avoiding the 1970’s hippie mood that’s been spread around as fast as the color in the leaves. Seemingly falling from just about nowhere into every clothing shop are these trends: suede, flared jeans, bell sleeves, and peasant shirts and dresses. Try a suede dress with a floppy hat and boots to really get into it! A fringe, brown suede jacket with a skirt and boots will make you light up apart from the crowd. Wear one of these awesome jackets with a peasant dress, perfect for later in the day when its cooler outside.

Be ready to trade in your skinny jeans for the flared or super-wide look that is perfect with a cozy sweater or peasant shirt. To really wear out the flared trend, wear these pants with bell sleeve tops. Although these ideas are super cute, probably the biggest 70’s trend right now is the suede fringe look on pants, boots, purses, dresses, shirts and ton more. Heavily or lightly fringed; its your choice, either way you’ll look groovy.
