It may technically be autumn, but Texas sure didn’t get the memo. There are still plenty of 90+ degree days in the forecast to sunbathe and sweat – and dream of cooler days. While you’re waiting, check out our fall preview of some of the looks we can’t wait to wear this season!
Cozy, comfortable, chunky sweaters are my favorite things to wear on brisk autumn evenings outside. This year, make a statement with your sweater. Choose one with a bright color, cool knit pattern or unique design. We love this ivory Sutton Bobble Crew Neck Sweater from Francesca’s ($54). This sweater features fun bobbles on the sleeves and is a sweet creamy neutral color. It’s perfect for tucking into jeans or a colorful skirt.
80s Puffy Shoulders
Blouses with puffy shoulders are no longer something just Katy Perry or your friend stuck in the 80s wears – it’s back in style for everyone! These bold, strong shoulders ooze confidence and glam. It’s a total boss babe move! For work, wear this Poplie Tied Blouse ($69.90 from Zara). This all-black, wrap-front top features a wow-worthy bow that ties in the front and even more impressive puffy shoulders. Pair with your favorite slacks and your highest heels to complete the look.
If your glass of merlot matches any item of clothing on your body, then you’ve nailed this fall trend! One of the hottest colors of the season is wine – on everything! From a new necklace to a new dress, you can’t go wrong. One item we can’t keep our eyes off of? This Wide Leg Satin Pant from BCBGMaxAzria ($228). These burgundy-colored trousers are fitted at the waist with a matching belt, with flowy, wide legs near the ankles. They are fitted, yet loose; sophisticated, yet comfortable – and instantly put you into a fall mood.
Put your best foot forward this fall with a pair of colorful or patterned booties! These are more fun than the typical brown or black, drawing attention to your pretty feet. You can’t go wrong with these Ann Taylor Kacey Block Heel Booties ($238). These classy black-and-white houndstooth boots feature two-inch block heel, chic pointed toe and padded insides for extreme comfort. Match them with your favorite coat, or wear with an outfit of neutrals to make them stand out!
