September 22 officially marked the first day of fall, and while it’s hard to say goodbye to summer, there’s a lot to look forward to with the start of the new season.
I don’t know about you, but I associate Fall with comfort – hearty soups, a cappuccino warming your hands on a cold morning, cozying up with blankets and a few September issues, swapping those baseball hats for floppy felt ones, and of course bringing those sweaters and heavier fabric pieces into rotation.
While midi-skirts have had their moment in the fashion spotlight, and have proven to be a great alternative to pants, hemlines are on the rise – it’s the mini skirts time to shine. Although this leg-bearing trend was ironically seen in fall/winter collections, don’t write off its potential. When layered properly, the mini works as a great transitional piece, and can stick around all season. Want some ideas of how to wear a mini skirt for fall, keep reading!
Let’s be real. Women back in the Victorian era were killing the game – crochet-like fabric, ribbon and lace details, demure high-neck ruffled blouses, and velvet. Victorian romance is real, and I, for one, am thrilled that Fall fashion has fallen under the Victorian inspired love spell.
Stripes are a classic print, and a staple to have in any wardrobe – I would even consider them a neutral. Pair a classic striped sweater or tee with a trench and dark denim for a polished Parisian look, or go playful, and add florals to the mix for an unexpected, but complimentary combination. While classic is, well, classic, this season, stripes are going beyond the navy-and-white nautical ones we all know and love.
