Preparing your wardrobe for fall is both fun and nerve-racking, at least that is if you’re someone who takes fashion and style seriously. If you’re an avid online shopper, there’s no way you haven’t already seen at least one or two of your favorite brands and websites’ fall collection. While it may seem like a few clicks would do the trick, there’s so much more to getting your wardrobe fall-ready. Aside from the clothes, your styling tricks and techniques would play a big part, too, in helping you get that fall vibe. Here are a few styling tricks to get you through fall in style.
- Show off your shoulders – early fall is the time when it’s cold enough to throw some layers on, yet somehow not cold enough to really get covered up all day, every day. To give your early fall look a hint of sexy, show off your shoulders! It’s a very subtle way to show skin during fall, and is also a great strategy to get comfy in slightly heavier fall clothing items.
- Wear pants with your dresses – it may not seem like a combination that works, but it does and it works so great. If you follow trends closely, you’ll know that this is one of the hottest pairing, especially for fall this year. The key to pulling it off, of course, is creating balance in your look (especially in your outfit silhouette).
- Bring your crop tops into fall – wearing crop tops during fall may sound insane but it is doable, and very stylish too! To make your crop tops fall-appropriate, of course, a little tweaking is needed. Layering your crop top with light fall basics is just one of the options.
- Let your sleeves do a little peek-a-boo – layering can be boring when you just pile on clothes without bothering to style them right. If you’re doing double long sleeves (one on top of the other), let the sleeve underneath peek through. This will give your outfit more depth and dimension and will also add a sophisticated touch.
- Top off your outfit with something sheer – it’s never too early to layer up, but if you think that the weather isn’t all too cold yet, you can always start light by topping off your outfits with a sheer layer. It could be a sheer blouse over a cami, a sheer dress over a slip dress, or any other combo that you can come up with.
