This is one of my favorite looks lately! It is sometimes difficult to come up with a fool proof outfit to wear in this weather- some days are still warm and some days are cooling off. We’re definitely not into jacket territory yet, but we get chilly in just a tshirt. We still want to wear our summer sandals, but those awesome leather boots are calling our name. What to do?!
Start with some dark skinny jeans and a plain t shirt. I love plain tops because they are cheap, and super easy to accessorize! I love the way this black top looks with a patterned scarf. Next, pair with an open toe, closed toe, sandal, or whatever footwear you feel like. Follow with a neutral eye like you can achieve with the Urban Decay Naked Palette, and a bright lip. My most recent favorite for lips is Clinique’s “red, red, red.” It is a brighter shade but is blue toned (read- makes your teeth look whiter) and is mega flattering. And totally can work for fall, winter, spring, summer….any time of year.
A few fun fashion tips:
– Jessica and I both love skinny jeans and jeggings. Why? You can cuff them in the summer to make capris, and in the winter you can wear them normally with a boot. They are so versatile and also quite flattering. It is a shame many women don’t think they can pull them off- weight should not be an issue when it comes to fashion. If you are afraid of the dreaded muffin top, simply wear a looser style shirt on top that doesn’t cling in the wrong places!
– We also love accessories! I am always on the lookout for fun, unique jewelry and funky patterned scarfs. ALWAYS! Why? I can really dress up a plain $5 tshirt with a really unique necklace or a really cool scarf. Don’t limit where you buy things either. I have found some really great finds at expensive boutiques, and at the grocery store and get compliments on things from both places.
– Don’t think you can’t pull off a red lip. You totally can! Go to the mall or your local Sephora and test out a bunch of different shades to see which one really fits your personality. I have many different shades of red for different moods and outfits, from deep wines to brights to sheers. Deeper wine and reddish brown shades are hot for fall.
– Be thrifty and buy an all neutral palette. Neutral does not equal boring. We both have some version of the NAKED palette, and for about $50 you can get 12 shades. There are plenty of shades for smoky looks and plenty for easy neutral day time looks. It is a great thing to have on hand!
-Dirty pastel nail polish is in. This is a muted pastel polish that looks like its been mixed with in little dirt.
Example: Zoya’s Bevin
What are you wearing as we transition to fall? We’d love to hear some of your fashion tips!
