Last week we showed you some of our vintage fall style inspirations so this week we wanted to show you our contemporary inspirations! One of the great things about fashion and personal style these days is that trends no longer rule everything. We are free to mix and match colors, patterns, prints, and textures as we see fit and play with silhouettes and shapes as much as we want! Before the heavy coats and snow boots of winter kick in (not that those can’t be stylish in their own way) fall is the perfect time to experiment with layering all sorts of clothes and for transitioning your favorite spring and summer pieces into chilly weather staples. Here are some of our favorite contemporary looks:
Leather and Layers via
Leather jackets, skirts, pants, vests, and tops have become pretty popular in the last few years. We love the mix of edgy leather pants with a preppy denim shirt and mint sweater layered over it!
Jewel-Toned Print Mixing via
This jewel-toned mix of stripes and polka dots is perfect for fall! You can always add tights and a coat or vest as it gets colder and this look is perfectly work appropriate!
Casual Cool via
For more casual fall moments we love skinny jeans layered with a simple T and a plaid shirt (or any other printed blouse). Add some casual bracelets, a scarf, and a crossbody bag and you’re good to go!
Layered Legs via
We are loving the layered leg looks happening for fall! Try layering tights with socks over them and booties or boots. You can also layer socks or leg warmers over skinny jeans and under boots for a casual collegiate fall look.
Layered Maxi via
To get the most out of your summer wardrobe you can layer you favorite summer dresses like this maxi dress here. Add a sweater or coat and a scarf and boots to make it fall appropriate!
Statement Coat via
This look is perfection! Pick up a statement coat (or cape in this case) in winter white or a statement color to give you something other than the typical black, grey, and navy coats you probably already have. You can always dress a coat up or down depending on what you are doing that day!
Leopard Love via
Leopard print doesn’t have to be intimidating (or trashy)! A pop of leopard in a coat or accessories like shoes or scarves is perfect. It can also be mixed with other patterns like stripes in this case! Keeping to one bold color in small doses in an outfit helps tone leopard print down. Here it’s layered to perfection with a denim shirt, striped dress, and chunky jewelry.
