I woke up today and it was 55 degrees outside, need I say more.
It finally feels like Fall here in New England, and I’m loving every second of it. To be honest, I’m not really a summer gal. I strongly dislike feeling hot and the moment I step inside from heat and humidity, I’m usually freezing due to the blessing of AC. So overall dressing for summer was never my forte.
So like I was saying today I woke up, pulled on this cozy sweater and slipped out the door, to take on the cold autumn air. This time of year inspires me to really embrace style after all this is sort of my last chance before the very un-style able layers of winter begin.
When it comes to embracing style in fall, especially in New England, layering is key but it can also get old quickly. Instead, I challenge you to layer different textures this year. From wool to velvet; fall brings the best of styled textures to our shopping carts and this year I encourage you to mix and match.
Below I’ve listed my top four closet staples and textures for Fall in New England:
Tweed: This is actually my favorite trend of fall. Tweed is nothing new but each year designers come out with new twists on the classic look. I’ve been wearing this tweed skirt non-stop lately, along with this tweed jacket.
Velvet Shoes: This year’s go to fabric seems to be velvet, but recently I’ve been obsessed with the velvet shoe trend. From these Lucky Brand Velvet Loafers to these blush velvet block heels; the trend is alive and I’m all in.
Blazers: Obviously I can’t leave blazers off our fall staples list. I recently did a whole post featuring my favorite blazer here. Blazers are the key to unlocking the perfect day-to-night style. Wear this sophisticated off the shoulder velvet top, and just pair it with a blazer for work and once 5 PM hits you’re all ready for happy hour, in a snap.
Knitted Sweaters: My final favorite style is knitted sweaters. I love pull-over sweaters that showcase knitting details. I think it brings both style and depth into your look. I decided to take on this style today with the sweater I’m wearing above.
I’d love to hear from you guys, do you have a specific staple or trend you can’t wait to rock this fall? If so PLEASE let me know in the comments below, I really do love keeping up with what you’re all up to.
Okay, I’m off to Starbucks now to grab a latte (regular not pumpkin spice) and start chipping away at some photo editing. Wish me luck. xx Aubrey
