August to Autumn
Trends we love
Maybe it’s just us, but this might just be the best time of the year…The transition into this season can be wild at times, but who doesn’t love covering up with a chunky sweater and busting out their favorite booties.
The change in the color of the tree leaves always has us crushing on fall colors for our wardrobe. Colors like rust, mustard, taupe, and off white are always staples for the season, but this year we are following suite from the Pantone predictions, and loving seeing some bold bright pops of color like royal blue, and fuchsia pink!
Chunky cardigans, graphic tees and cropped sweaters continue to lead the path in versatility for this transition time. We think these pieces are great for work paired with skirts and slacks, but let’s be real, throwing them on with leggings and a cute chunky sneaker makes for one chic athletic and put together look.
Speaking of bottoms, we won’t ever give up our skinny jeans (sorry Gen Z) but we are also wanting a pair of straight legged, mom jeans in our arsenal this year. These jeans are easy to wear with a graphic tee, or a cropped sweater, and offer more coverage through the mid-section as they tend to be a higher rise. When shopping for straight jeans, don’t ever feel discouraged! Some straight jeans offer more of a structured fit, in-store our brands like Cello, Free People, and twelve might be ones to consider if you like that route. But if you like your jeans with some stretch and give, try our selection of Kut from the Kloth and Jag Jeans.
We can’t forget about the recent uptick in the flare trend, and if we’re being honest. WE’RE HERE FOR IT. Flares have a way of elongating the legs, and make it fun to be able to wear a higher heel for those dressier days. Our favorite pair this year is from Vervet and with a lighter color and some distressing, they’ll be at the top of your Jean stash, but we are also loving the intricate details of these Dear John flares you’ll see below! The length of a jean can be a deterrent for some, but we’ve found that if the jean starts with a raw hem, they can be easily cut into the length you like without the use of a seamstress. Just use your fabric scissors, and add some distressing to the bottom to your liking. However, if you’d like to go the seamstress way, we do offer alterations!
We’re just about out the door, but there’s one accessory we haven’t been leaving without. And shockingly, it’s all about the hair this season. The coiled hair ties, hair clips, and scrunchies, have been saving our tresses, but also make for comfortable arm candy with a pop of color. Check out how we are styling our hair accessories below!
