Transitional seasons make it difficult to know what type of outerwear you might need on a given day. This is why I’ve rounded up my picks for the best jackets for fall 2018. These are must-haves for my wardrobe when the temperatures are a bit more unpredictable and I need options to pick from to ensure I’m not too hot or cold.
Achieving an effortless style is something many of us aspire to but may not know where to start. Looking like you just randomly threw a few things on, while still looking put together is not as hard as it seems when you have the right tools in your closet. Below are five tips to help guide you.
Invest in quality, classic pieces
Quality pieces almost instantly make you look more put together. When you pair that with classic pieces you get something that won’t be out of style next season and lasts longer as well. Some of my favorite staple classics are a white button down, well-fitted jeans, a wool sweater, a black and patterned blazer, a cashmere scarf, and a pair of loafers.
Be picky when it comes to trends
As tempting as it might be to chase every fun trend, and effortless style means having a signature style. Trends are fleeting and if you want to start developing a personal style that looks effortless, avoiding trying every trend. Maybe you want to try out the leopard print trend, if so, instead of buying a pair of leopard print pants that might be off-trend come next year buy a leopard print scarf that is a more chic and longer-lasting option.
It’s no secret that I love a cozy fall sweater and this wool one from Aritzia is no different. This sweater has a perfect relaxed, cropped fit and is incredibly warm. I’ve recently talked about my newly found love of merino wool (see here) and the fact that it’s not itchy like traditional wool.
Now that we are officially in fall I figured it was time to pull out the cool weather pieces to create an office appropriate look with a leather skirt. I love adding leather into my fall/winter wardrobe to give a bit of edginess but also because it adds a thicker layer for warmth.
