Black on black Black is always in style and this season we are seeing black from head to toe. The pairing is simple, chic, and foolproof. Though occasionally I like to mix it up a bit. In this case, working some red plaid into the all-black look can add some ‘90’s street wear’ vibes to your style. An oversized plaid shirt is extremely versatile. It can be worn by its lonesome, paired under a jacket, or tied around the waist. Where to wear: Thursday date night or Friday morning class
Spoken Boutique Menswear-inspired patterns
Bohemian vibes The boho-inspired look will follow us right into Fall. We will see embroidery, fringe, suede, and high-waisted denim. For this look, I layered a leather jacket over the short sleeve peasant top to make it seasonappropriate. You could also pair a chambray shirt under the peasant top as another option For footwear, you do not need to throw your sandals in the back of the closet, just yet. Look for sandals in darker colors and richer fabrics to take you into the Fall season. Remember you can pair your open toe sandals with tights to extend their wear. Where to wear: A Saturday shopping date with your girlfriends.
Menswear-inspired patterns add a touch of masculinity to your style. From tweed to houndstooth and herringbone you will see these prints popping up on trousers, outerwear, and accessories this season. For this look I went for a playful, casual feel. I paired the houndstooth pant with a flirty top – the ‘winking smiley face’ sweater and layered with a simple quilted moto jacket.
These pants are extremely comfortable and versatile. You can style a more formal look by pairing with a white oxford shirt, topped off with a boyfriend black blazer. Where to wear: Sunday picnics in the park
Violets Enjoy your wardrobe this Fall season and have fun with it. Lightly layer your clothing while playing with outerwear and accessories. A tee under a blouse topped off with a long coat or a silk scarf wrapped around the neck, a chunky sweater and a pair of flats. The options are endless. saratogaTODAYnewspaper.com
