Whenever the chill of fall breeze starts to signal that summer is close to an end, I often complain. I love warm weathers more than the freezing ones. Can you blame me? I grew up in Asia! But since I don´t want to dwell on negativity, I try to focus on the bright sides of fall. In fall, the surrounding turns colorful. I love to take pictures with the radiant fallen leaves while I wear a layering of cute pieces.
What´s that thing that pulls together everything of a well-thought layering? It´s a stunning outerwear! Whether it´s a coat, a dress coat, a jacket or a sweater, a comfy yet stylish topper is what makes a lovely layered outfit for fall.
1. Royal Blue Coat
There´s a reason why it´s called “royal blue”, this shade is simply regal. Add to that mesmerizing color a minimalist yet chic style, this coat is perfect for a crisp night walk and a smart work look. Needless to say, you can dress it up and down. Up with a dressy or a work-appropriate frock, and down with a pair of denim jeans.
2. Cream Faux Fur Vest
When it comes to fur outerwear, I always recommend a playful colored fur vest. But for those who simply want a puppy chic feel without calling much of attention, this cream faux fur vest should do. Wear it open over a simple tee and faded jeans, or cinch it on the waist with a buckled belt when worn over a dress or skirt.
3. Office Etiquette Black Jacket
This boardroom-ready jacket is only available in Lulus, but of course you can find a similar one somewhere. There´s always gonna be a similar piece, right? A crop jacket is a perfect accent to sheath dresses (yeah, those frocks you love wearing to work!), but it can also jibe with kicka** street style such as tattered jeans and tees.
4. Black and Cream Cardigan Sweater
This cardigan sweater is everyone´s favorite. I will bet that most of you have a cardigan which is something loose, knitted, has a relaxed fit, with long sleeves and front patch pockets. Although this type of sweater comes in many colors, this black and cream mix maintains that coveted elegance.
5. Red Plaid Moto Jacket
Moto jacket is cool; it toughens up any feminine ensemble. But for many of us, we tend to stick to what´s safe – black leather jacket, dark brown jackets, you know what I mean. How about putting your hands on something interesting and something brave? Get this black and red plaid moto jacket and make it your identity this coming fall.
6. Black and Ivory Dress Coat for Fall
I don´t even want to start talking about how Kate Middleton made dress coats a symbol of royalty, because I´m sure you noticed how glamorous she looks in them and she knows it. But one thing is clear; a dress coat brings out the lady in you no matter how slippery is the winter road.
A tip on how to layer a dress coat, it looks its best on top of an inch longer or shorter dress.
7. Beige and Black Faux Fur Vest
Save the best for last, they say. For me, this beige and black soft fur vest creates an irresistible style statement especially if worn on top of a black leather jacket. It looks like they come as one. If I see you on the street on a fall afternoon rocking this look, I´d take it that you´re telling me, “Bring it on!”
So let me know, girls, which fall outerwear are you?
