Read on for three fall looks that will have you turning heads this season, as styled by our very own Caitlin Kruse!
I practically live in long-sleeved dresses and boots this time of year. It’s my favorite combo! I recently got these dreamy suede knee-high boots from kate spade new york and have been wearing them non-stop. They are so comfortable and the stacked heel makes walking around in them all day a breeze. kate spade new york knows how to design with style and comfort in mind, which I find is pretty rare. Today, I’m sharing three ways to update this basic combo—and these versatile kate spade new york boots can take you from date night to the office in no time.
My go-to and the easiest look? Throw a scarf on! It’s the perfect accessory to enhance any outfit. Plus, it serves as a way to keep you warm, especially as the weather gets chillier this season. When shopping for these types of accessories, try keeping your color palette neutral in shades of cream, charcoal and white so that the pieces can be mixed and matched throughout the entire season.
For extra warmth, add a chunky knit sweater over your favorite dress. Adding a sweater over the top is also a great way to get more use out of a dress. It instantly changes the entire look by turning your dress into a flowy mini skirt. As we all know, it’s best to think ahead and layer this time of year since you could wake up to chilly temperatures in the morning, and end up with sweltering skin thanks to an abundance of sunshine in the afternoon. We have a feeling you’ll be thankful for your go-to chunky knit sweater more often than not this transitional time of year!
Wear a blazer over your dress for a more formal, office-appropriate look! This is ideal for days when you have to look professional at work, but have dinner plans or a date scheduled for later. The best news? Investing in a statement piece like a blazer is always worth the splurge since it can be worn over and over again all fall long! We love it with a dress, but it can always be paired with a tee and pair of dark wash jeans for an edgy yet sophisticated look, too.
By switching out our accessories and layers for different colored options and new patterns, these three looks will have you busy throughout the entire season! The ultimately goal? Let your creativity run wild and don’t forget to have fun with it this fall!
