NAVY BOOTS

With the cooler weather here, I cannot help but add more pieces to my list of fall must-haves. Aside from the fact that there so many to choose from, cozy sweaters to every kind of boot imaginable, what I love most is that any of these can be paired with key staples from the previous season. Love that! Today I’d like to take a moment to discuss one of my current favourites starting with the one colour I’ll be wearing all season long; navy.

Although I love wearing a variety of colours, navy just happens to be the one colour that I reach for time and time again because of how versatile it is; the best part is that it compliments virtually everyone and pairs well with every colour possible. Today’s look is definitely the epitome of all of that. Monochromatic with a pop of navy, I can literally wear these boots for hours at a time. Other than being a statement piece, these are super comfortable to wear because of the platform heel. If you’re looking at adding a statement piece to your fall wardrobe, look no further! This one is such a fun piece to throw on especially if you’re looking to break up your everyday monochromatic look.

HOW TO TRANSITION INTO FALL

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.
