Fall Fashion Favorites
It doesn’t really matter what the runways and magazine editors and bloggers dictate in terms of trends each season, I have my favorites for Fall (and Spring and Summer and Winter…) that I always rely on – and with good reason. I may sprinkle in something new here and there, but when it comes to ushering in a new season, I always end up focusing on a steady and stylish rotation of my favorites. Call me boring. Call me predictable. I call it personal style in your 30s. Here they are.
(above) Bangs. I love my hair long and fuss-free for hot Summer days but when the temperature dips, I beg my hair stylist for bangs again. They warm up my face and my features and add a cozy glamour to my look for Fall.
Layers. Preferably ones that involve a big chunky scarf. I love to layer up my look for cool Fall days…or coolish Fall nights here in Southern California where the days stay warm long after Labor Day. This type of layered look is always a favorite.
Military jackets. I can always find a new one every year because they are always in fashion. And with good reason.
Hats. Another favorite rooted in my Canadian roots (i.e. where it actually gets cold). I love a good hat and try to toss them on whenever the weather here permits.
Chunky knits. The flowy dresses and thin tanks of Summer are lovely but I really appreciate the comfort of a chunky knit come Fall. This one has a beautiful texture to it that makes it anything but basic, especially in a wintry white.
Blazers. Preferably in black. Mine are all dusty after the Summer months when they feel too dark and heavy. But they will be back in the mix come September, topping off tees and jeans or fancy frocks for a look that’s instantly pulled together…perfectly. Regardless of what the runway says.
