Style Spotlight: Vests

vests

Layering is one of my favorite things about Fall style, and what better way to layer than with a vest? This one garment is an ideal cover up for transitional weather – not to mention how chic it can make almost any outfit look. These are the four best women’s vest styles to wear for Fall 2015:

1. Long Vest – Call it a sleeveless jacket or coat, but this is one piece you’re definitely going to want to add to your wardrobe. Throw it over a a crisp blouse and black pants for an instant fall-look. Don’t just take it from me… Check out Selena Gomez‘s super trendy long vest outfit.

2. Quilted Vest – Everyone needs a good quilted vest in their closet. My favorite is from J. Crew, but if you’re on a budget there are plenty of other options out their. I found a few super cute ones from AmazingLace.com. For a preppy look, layer it over a plaid button down shirt and jeans.

3. Fur Vest – Although you may need to wait until it gets slightly chillier, a fur vest is indispensable. I like to wear mine over shiny leggings and a grey long-sleeve top. For a more dressy look, wear it over a long-sleeve body con dress and black booties.

4. Knit Vest – This vest is so comfy, you may not want to talk it off all fall. Throwing this vest over a tee and leggings is a modern way to update a classic style.

Fall into Fashion

UOPW5216

It’s time to dust off your leather jackets, whip out those leggings, and pick up a pumpkin spiced latte – It’s officially Fall! As a Florida girl who just moved up north, I’m super excited for cooler weather, colorful leaves and most importantly the fun fashion trends that come with the season change. Check out a few of my fall favorites that will keep you looking fabulous as the weather turns chilly:

1. Suede is probably one of my favorite trends for Fall 2015. Whether it’s a burgundy coat or camel-colored mini skirt, like this one from H&M for only $38, this material has the ability to make any outfit instantly more fashionable. Pair the skirt with this striped crop top, $22, from Topshop and black leather jacket, $53.26, from BooHoo. Strappy black wedge sandals, like these from Nordstrom from$80.37, look good with almost every outfit. Want more suede? Complete this look with a suede black bucket bag, $60.85, from H&M.

2. Need an outfit for your casual Fall Friday at the office? Grab a pair of dark skinny jeans out of your closet (my favorite pair is are Levi’s) and throw on a maroon top, like this one from Zara for $15.90. Dress it up a bit – and stay warm – by layering a dark brown blazer over it. Keep accessories simple with brown leather booties, $140, from Topshop and a cream tote, $49, from Lulu’s.

3. One of the best things hands-down about colder weather is finally being able to wear leggings and oversized sweaters again! These shiny leggings, $60, from River Island are one of my favorite pairs (which is a very hard thing to say considering how many pairs I have). Wear them with a simple roll neck white sweater, $49, from My Mum Made It, grey leather booties, $119, from Charles & Keith, and a multi-toned silk scarf, $114.12, from The Dressing Room.

Wearing White After Labor Day

white after labor day

The “no white after labor day rule” is – thankfully – becoming a thing of the past. Although I probably won’t be wearing head-to-toe white for a while, there is a way to incorporate this color into your wardrobe without looking like you’re on a beach vacation. So if you’re like me and you love white too much not to wear it year round, here are three season-friendly outfits:

1. White jeans, like these from TopShop for $65, never go out of season or style. Pair them with a grey Knit Jumper top from H&M, $24.99, and grey Lane Bryant Ankle Boots, $59.95. Keep the accessories simple and chic by adding a Grey Owl Print Scarf, $19.67, from SheIn.com.

2. A white blazer is a staple in my work wardrobe (and it should be in yours too!). This white Long Sleeve Slim-Cut Blazer, $38.99, from Choies looks awesome with a simple grey Ruffle Wrap Cami, $11.99. I wear this look with Destroyed Boyfriend Jeans, $38, from Nordstrom, but white trousers will dress this outfit up a bit. Accentuate with white and silver dangle earrings, $46.99, from Bling Jewelry, Skinny Strap SlingBacks, $25.79, from Office, and a white Vince Camuto Leather Tote, $139.48, from Lord & Taylor.

3. Little white dresses > little black dresses. This White Textured Bodycon Dress, $21, from Miss Selfridge is perfect for a night out on the town. Dance the night away in these white and black Suede Heels, $30, from Lulu’s, and complete your look with a Suede Clutch, $14, from Dorothy Perkins and a white and gold watch, like this DKNY one available on Amazon for $155. Is it starting to get chilly where you live? Wear this black Fleece Peacoat, $16.99, from Burlington Coat Factory over the dress!
