Fall has finally arrived! Living in Texas the cooler months don’t last too long so I’ve learned to invest in fall basics that are classic, light-weight and transitional. I’m all about versatility. I like items that can be mixed and matched, worn multiple ways, and styled differently each time. To spice up my fall wardrobe, I recently visited a local woman-owned fashion boutique, Dylan Wylde , for a few fall staples that are inexpensive and can be worn a few times- and that won’t go out of style.
I would best describe my style as sophisticated, yet sexy so when I saw this faux leather mini skirt I knew I had to have it. This mini skirt is just the right length which is rare to find for me being that I’m 5’8 and it really set the tone for my look. One of the things I love most about fall fashion is mixing textures. Turtlenecks, or in this case mock turtlenecks, are a great staple to keep in rotation because they are the foundation to layering effortlessly. Olive green is one of my favorite fall colors, so I knew I had to add this sleeveless top to the mix. It’s the perfect breathable fabric that is great while making moves during the day without breaking a sweat.
Laying is key for fall and so is finding the right outwear pieces that can be dressed down or up, no matter the occasion. Leather moto jackets are an essential that pair effortlessly with almost anything and make me feel like a badass. I love the zipper details that add some edge to this jacket.
There is something so classic about black booties that can easily be worn with a dress, skirt or leggings. I have had these black booties for a few years from Zara and they remain a staple in my wardrobe. What I love about them is that they can be worn year round since they’re open toe and have mesh and leather details that provide versatility.
Wherever you’re headed this season do it with style, passion and purpose. Most importantly, do what works for you. I’ve got another fall look from Dylan Wylde coming your way, so keep your eyes peeled.
