Weather Forecast: Cold Conditions, Hot Fashion
March 01, 2016
Is it time to pack away your summer shorts and get ready for sweater weather? Indeed it is, and it is also the perfect time to refresh your wardrobe. We are not suggesting that you throw away unworn pieces and rush out to shop for new clothes. Let’s be creative and savvy. What you need to do is just to keep a few items as staple pieces in your closet and mix and match around it.
With those pieces we keep, let’s restyle them with quality, preloved in-trend garments without burning a hole in your wallet. We agree that olives, mustards and caramels remain on trend for this year autumn/winter fashion. Grey, navy, and black are also popular wardrobe staples that suit the season well, while the warm hue of rose gold, or sleek silver accessories aid in creating charming outfits for the cold season.
We demonstrate how your existing basics go a long way in mixing styles for all seasons. All you need are: a white top, a crop jumper, a chunky knit sweater, a pair of skinny pants, a knee-length and/or mini skirt, and a denim or leather jacket. Recreate different looks just by pairing these staples with a statement piece.
In this section, we have paired the Carven Watercolour Print A-line Skirt with these simple but elegantly timeless basic tops from Giorgio Armani, Marni and Michael Kors. Simply throw on a coat or jacket, slip on a pair of stylish boots, shades and your favourite leather bag.
Fall is the season we bring out our favourite leather pants and skirts. We have selected three leather skirts below, the Moschino Vintage Leather Zip Skirt, Alice & Olivia Box Pleated Leather Skirt and Three Floor Whitley Pleated Leather Skirt With Zipper that look amazing when paired with either a statement jacket like the Sara Phillips Leopard Print Crop Jumper or the more classic Sass & Bide That's Influence Jacket.
If you prefer a more laidback style, you could just throw on a simple sweater like this cute Miu Miu Beige Linen Blend Knit Blue Back Tie Ribbon Sweater, match it with fitted pants and add a loose fit jacket - we feature the Sass & Bide The Starring Role Caplet Style Jacket With Embellished Shoulders and the Gorman Performated Suede Jacket.
If you find the same joy in restyling your outfits as we clearly do, you probably have a huge excess of these quality pieces in your wardrobe. We hope that you're able to restyle each and every piece like we have shown you - pull out those those beautiful garments from last season from the bottom of your drawers. However if for some reason, you can't seem to find a loving new way to breathe the life back into some of those garments - perhaps they either simply do not fit, it was an unwanted gift but you could not return as you had cut off the tags, or they are just pieces you have grown out of favour with but are in like new condition - you might want to consider selling them so that these classics could be enjoyed by another fashionista.
