The Most Versatile Pieces for Fall
Happy Autumn Friends! It's October, and officially my favorite season of the year! The crisp Autumn air just gives the opportunity for a fresh start. It's like a breath of fresh air and a wave of hope in one fell swoop. I pray that you find some beautiful adventures to take this fall and moments to appreciate the beauty. Come visit us in Ohio if you want to see some of the best foliage in the world.
Need some help pulling together a simple capsule for this beautiful season? These are 6 super versatile pieces and some advice on how to make them work in a ton of different ways!
1// neutral LONG SLEEVE DRESS
// You cannot go wrong with a simple cotton dress. Find one that flatters and you've got yourself a staple to dress up or down that will never be boring! I recommend a long sleeve one because it prevents the need to match up a long sleeve cardigan or jacket, which can make the outfit look frumpy if it's not just right. Knee length or shorter dresses tend to pair well with tall boots and longer ones with ankle boots. For the purpose of a capsule, choose a neutral color like black or tan that will go with a variety of vests, scarves and boots. In the same way, invest into a good, neutral long sleeve top that will serve the same purpose with jeans.
[ See these ones, these ones, this one, this one, this one, and these ones.]
// Top off that staple dress or shirt with a million different vests! I am a huge fan of duster's right now like the green one in the picture above. The ones with ties accentuate the waist like a dress. Kimonos are also popular currently and a great way to bring pattern and color!
3// staple CARDIGAN
Find a staple cardigan that you love and could grab every day. For me, it was important to find one that was just the right shade (I don't look good in greys or camel, so this was hard to find!). I also realized that I don't like sweater-knit - it's too warm and thick for me. Find one that you love, flatters, and you could grab every day. It's a hard task but better than having 20 that you barely like.
Happy Autumn Friends - I hope it wraps you up like a warm sweater!
