Transitioning into fall is not as easy a task as we think and yet we go through the same problems year after year. I’ve put together a few feminine outfits to inspire your fall style choices, whether you’re looking for something casual while the sun is still shining, a smart casual look that takes you from day to night or an evening party outfit, these are my three feminine looks for a fall transition:
1. Floral and sheer
Through an ever-changing style, one of the most constant things is my love for sheer pieces. The layering possibilities, the delicate romance, everything is so appealing. I wore black tights with black Mary Jane platform heels to elongate my legs, especially as I went for a knee-length skirt.
Haute tip: Pair a sheer top with opaque, colour-blocking layers and bottoms. It offsets the amount of skin on display and keeps it feminine and wearable.
2. Pretty Woman
Can I just say that I’ve only recently watched this movie and I’m obsessed. Did anyone else notice how chic Julia Roberts’s signature paper boy hat was? We all know that the weather transitioning to autumn can be temperamental. High waisted shorts, a classic shirt and a light jacket are some wardrobe essentials for transitioning to fall.
Haute tip: Mix up textures to create an interesting look. And just so we’re clear, I’m not an advocate of double denim, so go for a combination of leather and tweed or denim and leather, etc.
3. The Millennial Flapper
This was shot a few days after I watched Midnight in Paris, which I found to be the most quintessential American perspective of the City of Love. The story line was inspired by E. Hemingway’s novel ‘A Moveable Feast’ (that I read nearly four years later) and what I loved most about what was quite an average movie, is the juxtaposition between the 1920’s and the present.
Haute tip: To avoid looking like you’re going to a costume party, keep the flapper dress smart and sharp with a blazer and minimal evening bag.
