5 Items To Wear This Fall
links + small things
I know many of us are struggling with fashion for this fall. I don’t know if it’s my age, the current trends, or the fact that it still feels like summer here in Raleigh but I have been uninspired when browsing the internet for fall fashion ideas.
I feel like there used to always be a classic middle ground look, but now it feels like two extremes: you’re either dated in skinny jeans or extremely on trend in baggy low-rise denim.
I’m on a mission to make some smart purchases and offer recommendations to those of you who are also struggling a bit with what to wear.
Here are a few easy, casual, and classic items of clothing to wear this fall:
Wide Leg Trousers — pair with mules or a low heel for an incredibly chic look.
Neutral Sweater Tank (or a top with delicate, feminine detail like an eyelet or a crocheted top) — a sweater tank is easy to layer under a structured jacket or blazer.
Gold Jewelry — layered necklaces and simple hoop earrings are the easiest way to level up an otherwise simple outfit.
Woven Bag — I love the texture of a woven bag, and it can go with so many levels of an outfit (from ultra-casual to dressed-up)
Casual sneakers — I love a simple tee, great pair of jeans, and a casual sneaker for every day. Add gold jewelry and bright lipstick to elevate the look.
When it comes to denim, I’m most comfortable in a straight leg that hits at my ankle. I’m 5’5” and sometimes feel like the full-length straight-leg denim shortens me. I’ve got a whole rundown of what jeans to wear this fall coming soon.
As far as my color palette goes, I’m still gravitating to all things green, and choosing softer, warmer tones like putty, browns, and creams for light neutrals. I’m seeing a lot of blue hit the scene as well, which is a color that works well with my eye color, so I’m happy about that!
