I’ve probably mentioned over a hundred times that autumn is my favorite fashion season. I mean, it truly is the best fashion season if you think about it. The weather is perfectly mild, which gives you so many different style options to choose from. There’s also lots of pretty fall colors, cozy layering, cute accessories, everything about this season is so aesthetic and stylish!
Are you one of those people who isn’t an autumn fan or doesn’t know exactly how to dress properly for the season? Here are my top ten autumn styling tips!
1.) Preppy and proud
Who said dressing preppy is lame? Absolutely no one. And if people do say that, they obviously don’t know how to have fun with style! And fall is the perfect time to dress preppy because there’s so many options with layering and styling. So go all out and show off your inner Cher Horowitz!
2.) Channel the flannel
That’s right, the flannel is back in style! Actually, it has always been in style, but it is especially popular and trendy in the fall. So take out your cutest flannels from your wardrobe (or go buy a cute new one) and show it off!
3.) Layer it up
It’s a bit more chilly in the great outdoors (unfortunately it dropped down to freezing forty degrees in bipolar Ohio …), which means it’s time to bundle up in more clothes. That’s why I love fall though, because the clothes are so cozy and you don’t really have to worry about sweating your ass off. Bring out all the scarves, sweaters, leggings, and hats that you can!
4.) Cozy over impressive
What’s more important to you: impressing the guy you like with a fabulous skintight dress or bundling up in a teddy bear pullover? Do whatever you please, but, in my opinion, dressing cozy sounds far more pleasing than trying to impress cute guys. Besides, I’m a picky dater anyways!
5.) Mix up the fall color palette
Fall is the season of beautiful unique colors such as burgundy, gold, bronze, and much more! But don’t just stick to one color, mix it up a bit. You don’t see all the trees sticking to just one specific color, they like mixing it up as well!
6.) The boots are the roots
As Carrie Underwood once quoted, “The boots are the roots.” Although I think that was intended for country artists, it could still go for autumn lovers as well. The season isn’t complete without cute high knee boots, Hunter rain boots, or L.L Bean hiking boots!
7.) Watch out for coffee stains
Fall means lots of pumpkin spice lattes, caramel macchiatos, or other fall themed coffee beverages. Unfortunately, that means that your cute outfits can be at risk for coffee stains. Make sure you carry around a tide pen just to be safe. A cool trick I found was actually using a Purell hand sanitizer to get stains out. It works like magic, so quick and you can’t even tell there was a coffee stain in the first place!
8.) Add some lace
I love lace, it’s so elegant and classy. And Halloween is tomorrow, so bring out your inner witch and decor yourself with spooky black lace!
9.) Bring out the leather
Summer ain’t a good time for leather, which is why it’s perfect that fall comes right after. I love leather, but I also like wearing it when it’s a mild temperature outside. I’ll never understand how Sandra Dee was able to wear a leather jacket AND leather pants in eighty degree weather and still look so killer!
10.) Black is always the new black
This shouldn’t even be a concern. Black will forever go with everything and never go out of style.
