BREAKING NEWS: BREAK OUT THE RIPPED TIGHTS AND BOOT SOCKS. The only thing between us and a spooky day is the most magical time of the year – the transition from summer garments to fall clothes. The booties, maroons, and ripped jeans are back and they’re better. Here’s a few tips for when the temperature drops below 75˚.
BALANCE. It’s not cold enough for long underwear and not hot enough for tank tops. Pair long-sleeved pastels with distressed capris or jeans.
LENGTH. Fall understands that some days you want to wear shorts and some days you want to wear pants. Multi-length skirts and dresses help bring you the best of both worlds – just like fall.
COLORS. The best thing about leaves changing color is that you have a great backdrop for almost any colorful combination. Pair an exciting pattern with a nude to accent your inability to choose just one thing.
SHOES. There’s something special about the plethora of booties in the world when fall hits. A different pair for everyday or a reliable pair to get you through everything – even midterms.
