I’m really into oranges, rusts, browns, and reds right now. Maybe it’s because I miss a fall where the leaves don’t just shrivel up on the tree before they fall off onto the hot ground. Or maybe because of my redhead status, I want everything to go with my hair. Either way, I thought this outfit was just right for this time of year because it’s not super buttoned-up and snuggly, but it still reads fall because of the colors. Also, right now the whole menswear thing is really big, so I get to be kind of on-trend, too. Two outfit birds with one blazer/loafer combo!
Lately I have been helping a lot of my clients figure out layering for early not-that-chilly-yet fall, and my easy solution is to just try out your darker-colored dresses with different layering pieces. A blazer or a cardigan and some closed-toed shoes (as opposed to sandals) go a long way when trying to appear less summery.
