Guys, it’s that time again. Fall Fashion is right around the corner! And although I am a summer girl, through and through…I’m pretty excited about this year’s line up!
Usually we see a lot of boots, scarves and plaid for fall fashion because #Canada. But this year’s trends are a little bit edgier and I’m not gonna lie, I kinda like it! But what I like more than that is finding creative pieces that I can mix and match with different outfits by reusing the same basics. Even though I’m not fully on my way to sporting a capsule wardrobe on the daily (maybe soon!), I’m finding this is a really effective way to incorporate minimalism in to my closet and invest in really great pieces that I can wear again and again. For example, these black denim jeans, notice how great they look in every single outfit? One piece styled three ways = less waste and more longevity in your closet.
So with that in mind, here are three of the biggest fashion trends for fall 2017 and multiple ways that you can style them to get the most wear out of your closet!
I just love this trend because it easily turns something basic into something extra. Statement sleeves add a little extra feminine touch to an outfit and can class up a simple t-shirt and jeans ensemble. Or tuck a pretty little shirt like this in to a high waisted skirt and you’ve got something to take you from office style to date night effortlessly!
This trend is EVERYWHERE. On bags, shoes, jeans, jackets, hoodies…literally anything that can be embroidered IS embroidered right now. Be careful not to go overboard, but I really like the added details that embroidery brings. Plus it can bring something eye-catching to an outfit that may otherwise be really simple.
My only concern is that this trend might not stick around as long as other trends so find pieces that have some embroidery but aren’t so trendy that you won’t want to wear them past this year. Longevity is key.
Oversized Jean Jackets
Another way to change up a really simple outfit into something new! The oversized jean jacket is big right now and a great way to add some new style to pieces that you’ve already had in your closet for a very long time. It literally goes with anything! Plus its sized extra big…which means you can have one more taco for lunch and no one is going to notice! #theimportantthings
I wanted to style multiple looks with both the jean jacket and the ripped black denim pants so that you could imagine various ways to style one piece of clothing. Mixing and Matching pieces to create new outfits in your closet is so important and the real key to making longevity work season after season.
All of these looks I found at Betty Be Good, located in Blaine and Bellingham, Washington or at Betty Be Good online. Not only is their style fabulous, 2% of all profits is donated to survivors of human trafficking in the local area.
Go check out their store in person or online and let me know which fall fashion trend you like best!
