My top 5 ( if pushed I’d come up with more) things to complete your fall wardrobe. If you’ve already got them, well, congrats. You are definitely ahead of the game.
2} Splurge on a fabulous sweater this season. My choice would be cashmere but if you’re not into wool, try a heavy cotton, cable, crewneck fisherman style or opt for a lovely silk cardigan. Look for something in a color you might not normally wear that’ll brighten up dreary winter days or something you’re certain you’ll be throwing on with jeans for several seasons to come. Spend on quality. This one is a fabulous price right now but only smalls left:(
3} What do you wear running around for outerwear to movies or with jeans to the grocery? Is it your old sorority sweatshirt? Is it your hubby’s fleece? Stop. Just stop! Spend some time at the mall or on the web and find an all purpose jacket you love. It could be a hip length trench style or a colorful, pea coat that’s a bit heavier. Finally, when you need that quick-grab coat you’ll have it. Thank me later.
4} Sometimes all that’s needed to make a look is a fabulous necklace. There are so many to choose from right now it’s crazy. If that big, colorful rhinestone, J Crew-ish style is one you’ve been putting off buying…do it, they’re fun! I’ve seen several that are long chains with that type design also. But if that is just over the top in your opinion, then maybe spend some time on Etsy and look for a beautiful handmade piece. Sometimes they’re almost like artwork. For instance, I saw a gorgeous vintage, turquoise, teak and bone cuff on Etsy for $79.99 If it’s gone, check out my wrist;) This one is similar. Christmas anyone??
5} In my job, I see many women whose shoes are, well, for lack of a better word, awful! Scuffed, ripped leather, eighties square toed, broken strap, and the list goes on. For all that’s holy take care of your shoes! They carry you everywhere and are on broad display when you sit and cross your legs! Okay, over my tantrum. This season, invest in a pair of great flats. Try a loafer style with some embellishment instead of your normal ballet flat. Or at least look for an animal print…you’ll love them! If you add a flat and ankle boot it’ll increase your wardrobe looks dramatically.
