Tips for the perfect fall outfit

Before I show you the latest trends, let me give you a few tips and tricks that I use to stretch my wardrobe:

  • At the start of fall when it’s not overly cool, take your summer dresses and layer with a sweater, a jacket or a denim shirt belted. You can even use a pullover sweater and it looks like a skirt.
  • Add tights to an outfit with a dress.
  • Layer a scarf
  • Add a denim or military jacket
  • Fall in love with Plaid
  • Wear high boots or ankle booties with a dress
  • Mix jewel tones with plaid


Now, on to the trends:

    Tried ordering through Amazon and the site freezes when picking size. I had to click I wanted companion piece and while in cart, delete that item and change the original item wanted to the correct color and size. Hope it works.
