The change of the temperature and the leaves also brings about another change especially on our wardrobe. It’s the time of year we put away our shorts and flip flops in exchange for leather trousers and boots.

- Cover up with fall layers.
There are certain pieces in your closet you can keep from season to season and some that need to be retired. However, you can still extend your summer wardrobe by wearing them with stylish layers that will keep you cool at the same time stylish. Like fashion blogger Louise Ebel, think of wearing a summer dress with a fall coat and hat that will refresh your look a bit while looking season appropriate. Or, make your 70s inspired outfit look cozy by wearing suede flared pants and printed top with a fall coat like Zanita Whittington did.
- Pick fall colors like reds and neutrals, or ground your pastel colors with blacks.
Though fall palette is known for earthy shades, this season we’re spotting reds, neutrals, and pastels grounded with black. Neutral palette is a great for evening parties, so think champagnes and grays. If you wish to wear your romantic summer dresses, make them appropriate this season by teaming them with dark shades. Like fashion blogger Jenny Bernheim, think of a feminine peach dress that will look great with a navy sailor blazer and nude heels.
- Pick animal prints, graphic prints, and retro floral prints to add some flair to your style.
If you are considering a print, you will find pastel colors such as a blush colored floral mixed with browns in the background. For a timeless statement, think of animal prints like snake, leopard, zebra and such that will add some edge to your statement without trying too hard. Also, watch for black and white graphic prints and retro floral patterns that can be great this season.
- Embrace leather ensembles that can add some edge to your fall style.
Leather has become a staple in every woman’s collection. They serve as both wonderful accents to full garments, adding some edge to your style effortlessly. Mixing different types of fabrics and textures is what great fashion is all about. There is nothing better than a great leather jacket or vest. Like fashion blogger Jenny Bernheim, wear your leather jacket with your fall layers to create an edgy urban look. Also, leather can be found as piping, banding, and cutout work. By heeding these simple tricks, you’ll be able to make your fall style fashionable, functional, and season-appropriate.
