We're back with fashion tips galore for Arizona's trickiest season of all -- FALL! Switching into a new season can be a bit daunting, just as you've established your summer style you're thrown into the windy fall weather where your summer dresses just don't make sense anymore. Although it's sad to kiss our adorable rompers and warm toned lipsticks goodbye, at least we get to say hello to bold coats and leggings! Here are some of my top tips for navigating falls newest fashion trends.
LAYERS, LAYERS, LAYERS
One of the biggest trends this fall is statement coats and plush fabrics. But early fall can be absolutely miserable if you don't prepare correctly. In the morning it's freezing and all you want to do is bundle up with a coat and scarf, but by the end of the day you are drenched in sweat and wishing you'd braved the cold and just worn your fave summer shorts. It's true that this weather is almost impossible to navigate when you're half asleep trying to get ready for school or work, but the tip that I live by in early fall is LAYERS! You can still follow this fashion trend without giving up comfort. I don't know what I'd do without this magical concept, but I can rest easy knowing I can handle the crazy AZ weather.
TIP: Try to stick to light weight sweaters and coats as long as possible, so they're not a hassle to carry around the rest of the day.
Like we talked about before, statement coats are super trendy right now and as fall bleeds into winter we can start whipping out our favorite coats. This is definitely one of my favorite trends because it's super easy to style. I usually wear something simple, like all black, and then all I have to do is throw on a coat and I seem like I have my whole life put together. This trend is seriously magical.
TIP: Pick a bold color for your coat, because it's fun and why not?!
COMFORT IS KEY
Lucky for us this fashion season has proved that comfort is in style! That means sweat suits, baggy sweaters, and yes, even UGGS! This trend is easy enough to follow, wear something comfy and call it fashion-- because it is!
TIP: Go all out with your makeup when you wear this trend to add a glam twist. If Margot Robbie does it, you should too (that's the motto I live by).
This is my #1 favorite trend forever and always, give me a high collar and I'm all over it. So you can bet I'm bringing out my victorian collars and turtlenecks as soon as it drops below 80F. Because of the high collar you can get away with throwing your hair up in a messy bun and calling it a day, so this look is super easy to recreate pre-coffee.
COOL WEATHER SUNNIES
Just because it's fall does NOT mean your favorite sunglasses have to go into hibernation, the suns rays will be there even on the coldest days (although it may not feel like it). So keep those eyeballs protected and grab some trendy shades!
TIP: Don't smoke cigarettes, like the girl in this picture-- just because she has good style doesn't mean she makes good life decisions. ;)
KEEP IT SIMPLE
Last but not least, a great trend this fall is to just keep it simple! Being fashionable does not by any means mean spending loads of cash on designer brands, in fact some of my favorite pieces in my closet I picked up at Goodwill! These outfits show you can easily elevate a simple look like a white t-shirt and jeans and look like a million bucks.
