FALL FASHION

STYLE EDIT: TOP PLAID PIECES TO CHECK OUT NOW

Untitled-7.jpg

Without a doubt, plaid is never going to go out of style. Plaid prints are so easy to incorporate into any look to make a statement - whether that’s a big or subtle statement. The good thing is that plaid comes in a variety of different types, colors and types. My favorite go-to plaid piece is definitely a plaid blazer. I feel as if blazers put the cherry on top of any look that you are going to achieve. Pictured above, I added a blazer on top of a cropped tank and jeans..boom..added the blazer and the whole looked became complete! What I love most about plaid, is that you can mix prints with it to go for a bolder look. Try mixing plaid with leopard print, something striped, or even one of fall’s biggest trends - snake print. Below are plaid pieces that you can shop + get some major fall outfit inspiration from. Be sure to tell me which plaid look (or piece) is your favorite and how you plan to style it this season!

TOPS:

A plaid top is probably one of the most easiest pieces to style because all you have to do is throw on a pair of jeans, skirt, or shorts and you’re good to go. Remember, your plaid piece is your statement so keep the rest of your outfit simple. Play with your style! Tuck it in, roll the sleeves, tie it up, do you boo!

BLAZERS:

OK, a plaid blazer is like…a classic staple. You must own a plaid blazer! If you don’t, consider this a push to buy one this fall season. I recently got one from H&M to wear during New York fashion week to wear with the matching plaid pants (below) and I am in love with the tie/wrap detail!

DRESSES:

Well of course dresses was going to be on the list because you just have to put on one piece, and your outfit is set, sis! Depending on the style of the dress, you can add accessories for some extra touches like belts, hats, knee-high boots, belt/waist bags or statement jewelry.

TROUSERS:

For all my ladies who love pants (I’m with you) I didn’t leave us out! Pants - or trousers as the UK natives call it - are forever going to be one of my main essential go-tos. If you’re wearing plaid pants, let them do the talking and pair them with a simple top or sweater for the fall. Lately, I have been seeing lots of chunky knits half tucked in trousers and skirts. Gonna try that next!

 

CORDUROY TROUSERS

IMG_3998.jpg

Corduroy anything just feels so comfortable especially if the piece is lightweight. I remember wearing corduroy outfits when I was a little girl (loved it then) and still wearing corduroy 20 plus years later. This culotte pair from Zara was such a good find! The rust color with the 70's zipper pull is what sold me. I've always loved good neutrals because you can honestly never go wrong when mixing and matching with different outfits. I feel like my style has become more and more relaxed lately since I'm always on the go with a full-time job while trying to put in w e r k for this blog! That being said; I'm always shopping for things that I can wear multiple times, different ways, and that will last me for a long time. I can be guilty of buying "fast fashion" trendy pieces that I only wear once or twice. With the new year coming up - I'll be cleaning out my closet and getting rid of things I haven't worn or don't wear as much, and replacing those with staples that I won't get tired of and can be worn years from now. What are some of your must-haves in your closets?

STRIPED SWEATER DRESS

Sweater dresses are probably the easiest and most comfortable pieces you can wear. Most importantly,  you don't even have to worry about finding a top to wear with a bottom - win, done, sold. I try to make dressing as effortless as possible by shopping for things I know that I can wear more than once, and that can be worn many different ways. When I saw this one  (sold out) from H&M I had to have it because I loved the colors so much! It's so soft and I plan on wearing it again with ankle boots. For this look, I knew the Stan Smith Adidas were a perfect match for the "street style" feel while strolling around South Congress in Austin. This could also be a Thanksgiving dress but I plan on wearing a long sweater so I can unbutton my fly after stuffing my face with all the food. Haha. What are your Thanksgiving outfit ideas?

6 COZY SWEATERS YOU NEED THIS FALL

IMG_3766.JPG

I just love that time of the year when you get to break out all the sweaters and jackets and wear them on repeat. Unfortunately, here in Texas sweater weather doesn't last too long. So when we have it, undoubtedly we take full advantage! I absolutely love this chunky knit sweater that I recently got from H&M and I plan on wearing it multiple times this season. I just really love a nice grey sweater. I paired it with this  Who What Wear Wrap-Tie Skirt that I'm obsessed with, and burgundy velvet booties that I scored from Steve Madden last year. I tried to find the to link for you guys, but they're sold out. (you can shop similar styles at the the end of this post) Each piece from this look can be so versatile which makes it so easy to wear on a daily basis - casually or a bit more dressed up. I also want to wear this sweater with denim, maybe a vinyl skirt, or even under a coat when it gets much colder here. Side note, if you haven't been to Target to check out the Who What Wear collection, I highly recommend you do so! They have been coming out with so many gooood pieces lately that I've been adding to my "want-list."

FALL WITH DYLAN WYLDE

DYLAN WYLDE is a local women's fashion, accessories, and home goods boutique located in South Austin, TX. The selection of clothing is very fashionable, trendy, mixed with a bit of East coast + Austin vibes, and most importantly - affordable! DYLAN WYLDE is that one-stop-shop you can't help but want to spend all your money......on everything. Maybe that's not a bad thing. Before then, I visited the shop after just casually driving by on South Lamar during the Summer and fell in love with the space. I also met the owner - Jessica, who is literally just the most genuine and sweetest person ever!  I am so excited that I recently got the opportunity to team up with DYLAN WYLDE to put together three looks for Fall to share with you guys!

It was so hard to choose just three looks for this shoot. I wanted to try on and wear everything! Considering the fact that Fall doesn't really take us seriously in Texas, it was easier to choose multiple versatile pieces that could be worn all year long. For my first look; I chose this velvet balloon-sleeved cropped sweatshirt to pair with this fun printed pleated skirt because the colors worked so well together. I knew I wanted to wear this crushed velvet top, and I also wanted to create a unique look so I asked for Jessica's opinions on a few bottoms. She suggested this skirt which was perfect since the colors of the prints were so on point with the top. It was only half-way through shooting this look when I spotted a must-have belt to fully complete.

For my second look, I picked a long denim jacket as a staple piece and paired with it with this sheer embroidered top, and a ruffled leather mini skirt. As I mentioned before, Fall in Texas isn't very Fall-ish so you can pretty much get by wearing skirts and short boots the entire season. In the morning - you can take advantage of the sweater weather, and by the afternoon you'll be wearing your undershirt (which I don't wear, so I'd be S.O.L.) I do think that leather skirts are another staple that can be worn all year long because you have so many ways that you can style them. With t-shirts, tanks, crop-tops, sweaters, jackets, etc. You can't go wrong with a velvet bootie either. I scored this pair from Steve Madden last year when velvet anything was the current-craze. I would say that it still is..

For my third and final look......can we just talk about these metallic pinstriped pants? I immediately gravitated towards them because they are so good. You can't tell in the photos but the pinstripes have gold, bronze, and silver detailing. Obsessed. I paired them with this glittery metallic-bronze cropped top and an oversized long-line blazer. I love this look simply because our weather can be versatile, all well as this outfit. If it randomly got warmer during the day, you can remove the blazer and still look polished and put together. This blazer is another statement piece that you can throw over almost anything to dress up (over a dress), or create more of a casual-chic look paired with denim and sneakers.

What did you guys think of these looks? Which one was your favorite? I loved every single look, but my absolute favorite was the very first look! I just had to have that long-sleeved velvet cropped top.  You can currently shop all of these pieces at DYLAN WYDLE and tell them Meghan sent you!
