HOW TO TRANSITION INTO FALL

ZARA COAT (similar) | WHITE TEE | JEANS | CHLOE BAG | BOOTS | RINGS ( 1, 2 )

For the most part, my wardrobe contains everyday essentials that can be mixed and matched throughout each season. These are what I like to call transitional, versatile pieces. Many of you may have noticed I talk a lot about versatility here on Sweet As Fiction, perhaps a little too much, but I’ve always believed that having this particular quality makes each piece that much more special. Fashion is an investment and keeping practicality in mind while shopping will take your closet from trendy to timeless in the long run. As we move into a new season, I’ve put together a few tips on how to transition into fall appropriately:

LAYER:
When you live in a city where it’s cold for half of the year, you learn that layering is such a necessity. To avoid adding bulk within your layers, add pieces that are made with thinner materials; wool or cotton are my favourites to layer with.
INTRODUCE COLOUR:
Neutrals are my go-to for almost any occasion, but I love switching things up and adding colour too. That said, it never hurts to add a pop of colour to your overall outfit to tie it all together. Think a beautiful scarf or a statement bag.
WHEN IN DOUBT, ADD BOOTS:
From moto to over-the-knee, boots are the preferred go-to footwear throughout fall, which is partially why it’s one of my favourite seasons. You can literally find a boot for any occasion, which makes it such a great closet essential.

THE SLIP DRESS

SLIP DRESS | PANAMA HAT | VALENTINO HEELS | YSL BAG | RINGS (1, 2, 3)

My theory is that every girl should own a slip dress. It’s flattering for one, and so chic for another. With a slip dress like this, you don’t want to overdo it. I chose to keep this look very monochromatic, working with textures by adding a leather jacket, a statement bag and a few of my signature rings. The idea behind this look was juxtaposition; marrying the soft and femininity of the silk dress with an edgy leather jacket. It’s really one of my favourite ways to pull a look together.

RULES OF STYLE

PHILIP LIM SHIRT | EXPRESS NAVY SHORTS | HEELS | YSL BAG | RINGS ( 1, 2, 3)

The older I get, the more I find myself veering away from trends and creating a closet full of timeless pieces that work together. My theory is that when your closet is carefully curated getting dressed becomes so much easier. That said, today’s look is comprised of items that no matter the time of the year, will be ones I gravitate towards for seasons to come.

You’ve heard me say it in previous posts here on Sweet as Fiction, but focusing on pieces that speak to you is what helps create your own personal style. For me, this can be a statement bag with a certain embellishment or that special pair of distressed denim. These mixed with all of the good wardrobe basics like a plain white tee, crisp button down, crew-neck sweatshirt or leather moto jacket really helps set your style apart from everyone else.
