Fall is really here now and that means all of summer is gone! Even though we had a very wet and cold summer this year, it’s still sad to watch the warm temperatures disappear. No more outdoor barbeques, eating ice cream on the streets and taking dips in outdoor pools. It’s still a bittersweet feeling because who doesn’t like sweater weather???
The season to dress up really nice is here now. I really like fall season because you can dress up, look absolutely stylish and not seem “overdressed”. Here are my go to styles for staying absolutely fashionable during fall.
Sweater + Skirts
I paired this cool blue sweater with a powder shade of blue skirt for a more elongated figure. (Don’t tell anyone but wearing different shades of the same colour always gives off the illusion of a taller look ?).
I paired them with knee high boots and I instantly went from “the mom next door” to “OMG! That’s the mom next door” ?. The skirt could be of any length or any silhouette and will give off a super stylish vibe. Feel me?
Sweater again! This mustard yellow has got to be my favorite colour. It just contrasts my skin in the most complimenting way. I paired this sweater with my favorite high wasted Jeans that helps me tuck my “mum pouch” away perfectly. Pair your favorite sweater with a pair of jean and ankle boots and you will look very fly. The cool thing to do is tuck your sweater into your Jean and use your bold belt to hold it up. (I had no belt so I just borrowed hubby’s). Remember you can make s statement with any outfit, your poise and carriage is all that matters.
Let’s just say the denim has gone from clothes being worn by peasants to clothes that every one wears irrespective of age or social status. And the Denim trend isn’t going anywhere soon so that brings us back to look 3. Denim on Denim! I paired this denim look with a contrasting white vest to make my melanin pop of course. For a chic and casual look, pair this with flat boots like I did, or add a pair of high heel sandals and you’re ready to use the world as your runway.
