Autumn always seems to be the briefest of seasons. It’s probably because we tend to start seeing holiday decorations so early (and because the days start getting shorter) that it often seems like winter when we’ve only just started adjusting to the end of summer! Whatever the case, winter will soon arrive, and with it will come the opportunity to fully embrace your fall/winter wardrobe. If you haven’t shopped yet for the cooler months, here are a few trends you can embrace with ease.
1 – Sparkling Shoes
It seems almost like an odd suggestion, but if you’ve kept your eye on catalogues and online slideshows of fall and winter looks at all, you’ve probably become familiar with it. Looking through holiday shoes for women, you’ll see a lot of color and shine. Even within this, however, it’s hard not to notice glitter and sparkles! Whether in boots, high-heels, flats, or high-heeled boots for that matter, winter shoes are being encased in glittering exteriors that make them sparkle against some of the duller tones that so often dominate the season. It’s a wonderfully fun trend that seems to be popping up everywhere.
2 – Oversized Turtlenecks
Could there possibly be a cozier trend than an oversized turtleneck? It’s just a big baggy sweater, perfectly toasty for the season, complete with a neck large enough to serve as a sort of raised pillow around your neck and the bottom of your face. Or at least, that’s how I think of it! Oversized turtlenecks popped up on runways for fall and winter fashion throughout the year, coming in all kinds of different colors. You might consider looking for one in a bright shade of red, given that this is about as popular a color as a specific season has seen in years this winter.
3 – Sweater Dresses
Dresses are always some of the most versatile items, and there are certainly occasions to go with full-length options. If you’re looking for a dress for a New Year’s party, you might opt for something more formal. A write-up on recommended attire for an evening out suggested a floor-length dress with heels if you have a fancy dinner. But for your more informal occasions – drinks with friends or family over the holidays, a day out shopping at the mall, etc. – a sweater dress will do just fine this season. There are all kinds of cute options being showcased across the internet and in fashion catalogues, so you have your pick of styles.
4 – Talismanic Jewelry
I’ll be quite honest – I wasn’t aware of this term until I saw it on a list of fashion accessories for the fall and winter, but now I can’t get enough of it! Calling them transmitters of good luck and averters of misfortune, the article pointed to everything from charmed bracelets to feathered necklaces, painting a picture of a fun, personal, and affordable brand of accessory. Broadly speaking, just keep in mind that some offbeat (but far from tacky) jewelry options are certainly making the rounds this season.
Hello everyone, just a quick post today on this Fabitoria Episode 1 top! What captures my attention to this top is its unique hemline and strong graphics. The boxy loose fit is very comfortable too, especially for the hot summer weather.
I have been gifted a few neck scarves recently and while I love all of them, I think a classic print like this Connect The Dot scarf from Bobbibows is definitely a winner! Polka dot just can not go wrong with its timeless appeal and I had fun creating this summery polka dot on polka dot outfit look over the weekend.
Happy Hump Day, just a quick post for today!
There is a wide patch of grassland near where we stay and we thought it will be a good experience to have a picnic there.
There are certain trends that I would never have tried if I do not read fashion blogs. The men’s shirt is an example but articles such as 10 Stylish Ways a Woman Can Wear A Men’s Shirt do encourage me to think out of the box.
If you want to look your absolute best for summer, you simply can’t skimp on the dresses you own in your closet! Without a doubt, certain designs and colours are more common for the summer season than other times of the year. When it comes to choosing the best summer dress styles to add on to your clothing collection, here are few options that you should look into –
Happy hump day, hope you are having a great week so far!
I am quite adventurous when it comes to trying new trends or styles but the oversized blazer is something I tend to avoid. This pastel pink blazer was an impulse buy and had been lying in my closet for a long time. I bought it because I love the color but never got to wearing it as it looks big on my frame (why didn’t I thought of that when I bought it?).
I have been seeing more orange or tangerine colored apparels in shopping malls and I am quite tempted to add a couple of designs to my wardrobe. There is something about the color that particularly attracts me this season although I can’t quite put a finger to where the attraction lies. While yellow is a super cheerful color and red is smoking hot, orange is somewhere in between which could explain why I find it charming in its own ways!
How is life treating you so far? I have been very busy recently due to a heavier workload so I will be posting on the blog less frequently. Fashion and personal styling has always been a huge passion of mine and I will strive to post at least once to twice a week to keep the blog going. Instagram and Facebook are where I will be posting more activities moving forward :).
One of the great things about having a sister is that you can borrow clothes from her once in a while. We do not always share the same taste in clothing but in this case, the super fun prints of this dress of hers attracted my attention immediately! Similar to bright colors such as yellow or coral pink, cute prints have a mood enhancing effect on me. I just felt like twirling round and round in this hot-air balloon printed dress which comes with equally adorable round buttons.
