Hi Blushettes! My name is Jalynn and I’m so excited to be your guest contributing fashion blogger this week, sharing my tips on how to style your summer favorites into fall must-haves!
I’m a firm believer in layering, and on my blog, The Red Closet Diary, I’m constantly figuring out new ways to add personality to my outfits by layering with items that I love. Not only does layering look adorable, but it can help you stay nice and cozy when the weather gets chilly. With a few of my favorite layering pieces being cardigans, scarves and leggings here are some ways you can refresh your fall wardrobe in a chic way!
What’s great about layering, is you can mix and match seasonal clothing for a look that’s very current. For this outfit, I paired a high-low dress with a summer sweater underneath and this adorable floral scarf for a bright and fresh, yet autumn-inspired look! Styles like this you can wear multiple ways, for example, wearing the sweater over the dress, like 20’s Girl Style did, and wrapping a belt around the smallest part of your waist for definition. The options truly are endless, and is why you’ll always find myself and other fashion bloggers rocking this look.
Another way to stylishly layer this fall, is by simply learning and applying balance. If you’re going to add a vest and accessories like I did with this outfit, you’ll want to balance the extra bulk by pairing your look with something minimal, like these fleece leggings for example. Doing so allows you to stay warm without needing to to add too much excess fabric to your style. Likewise, layering with vests is a great way to tone down any loud prints you may be rocking, and focus other’s attentions to the middle part off your body, instead of widest. Adding a blazer, vest, or cardigan can be a great way to be stylish, figure-friendly and fall ready!
This third outfit is my absolute favorite! Aztec patterns were huge this summer but that doesn’t mean they’re stuck in last season. Pairing bright colors with neutrals like this cream crochet cardigan and brown leather belt is a great way to provide more Autumn-inspiration, while a fun scarf like this crochet red number can balance the color in your look and focus other’s attention on the fall accessory rather than the dress. Looks like this are effortless, super comfortable and of course practical for anywhere on your fall agenda.
