{Fashion Monday} How-to dress for fall 

How do you dress for fall? What kind of style have you gravitated towards this season? I am all over the place during fall and winter but bottom line I am always warm. How-to dress for fall can be as easy as 1-2-3 or as hard as you make it. It all depends on your personal style and what you feel comfortable in. I am a huge advocate of dressing for comfort and make no bones about it. For me if you’re comfortable in your own skin and your outfit everything else comes second.

I always put this disclaimer forward that “I am no fashionista” but that hasn’t stopped me yet. Fashion Fits Fall, we are all unique because we are different and have personal preferences. I don’t have to look like the models in magazines or on tv and if you do that’s great for you. For me it’s about “Not comparing myself to the next person” but rather “loving me for me”. With that being said, here is how-to dress for fall

How-to dress for Fall

The weather has been getting colder by the day and even more so at night. This has prompted me to share ways I am keeping warm this autumn. You don’t have to purchase a new wardrobe but adding a few pieces wouldn’t hurt either.

Layering skirts and dresses over tights or leggings

Those who know me know how much I disliked layering with a passion. But over the years I have found items that I can layer easily without it seeming like I have layered. If you’re a skirts or dress kind of person then continue wearing your summer dresses just add tights. And if you’re wanting to continue wearing your cocktail dresses then add a lovely denim jacket or a belted Mac jacket.

Boots with Jeans

I am a sucker for jeans and always dress in them whenever I am running errands. This autumn I am wearing more jeans paired with boots than dresses or skirts. I find jeans easy to dress and easy to style up or down depending on the occasion. Skinny jeans are my favourite kind then boyfriend jeans which you can pair with trainers and a hoodie. To finish off the skinny jeans with boots outfit you can pair with a leather jacket and scarf.

Mix and Match 

Though I rarely mix and match my clothes I do like mixing and maxing during the autumn. Autumn is all about the contrast in colours, it’s summer turning into winter. You’re in the middle between the warmer and colder months. For winter most gravitate towards darker colours this happens also when the weather gets colder in autumn. So why not pair your dark colour outwear with a bright coloured top. I also love mixing and matching not only colours but patterns too.

Accessories with scarves and hats

I love wearing scarves throughout the year, they are so versatile and goes with practically every outfit. You can wear them for practicality or for fashion, it’s all up to you and how you make them fit for purpose. I love chunky scarves for autumn and winter to keep me warm but stylish at the same time. Light scarves are mostly for summer or warmer autumnal months. When it comes to hats, you can wear whatever suits your fancy, I personally prefer beanies. I find them easier to work into an outfit and rarely mess my hair up so they are first choice for me.

And there you have it, ways on how-to dress for fall season and look stylish at the same time. You don’t need a new wardrobe just repurpose your summer clothes and mix in your winter items too. How are you dressing this season? What style are you gravitating towards this season?

    Having grown up in the Pacific Northwest, I found that I loved layering clothes. It doesn’t always work so well in North Carolina, but that’s definitely a tip I support.

    I’m all for mix and match outfits. I mean, half the time that’s what I wear. Perks of working from home, huh? 🙂

    I am impressed with getting those jeans in the boots. I can only imagine how difficult that is. And yes layering is such a difficult thing.

    It’s not easy here in South Florida. You want to dress for the season, but some days are way too warm

    I often do mix and match, just to have different looks with the same options. I also like wearing cozy warm and heavy jackets.. Wonderful suggestion you have here

    I love boots with jeans and leggings but my husband hates it. He always has something to say when I wear them, lol
