Fall is In
By Irene Marquez, Fashion Contributor
Fall is officially here!
And while Angelenos are lucky enough to enjoy warm weather year-round, the shift in season can certainly be felt throughout town- the colorful pumpkin patches have popped-up all over the city, fall foliage has begun making a festive appearance, and “pumpkin spice” is once again, the flavor of choice. But perhaps more importantly, fall fashion has arrived and sartorially speaking, it makes for our favorite season! Here are our top five fall fashion musts:
As seen on the Autum/Fall runways of Victoria Beckham, Tom Ford and Givenchy, among others, leopard and zebra print are back in! To keep a classy, pulled together look, opt for a pop of animal print. A fun animal print shoe with a neutral colored outfit, or an animal print jacket with a polished all black look, are both a chic and safe way to incorporate this fun trend, without overdoing this wild pattern.
Hats, perhaps, are one of the easiest and chicest ways to add a fashionable element to any outfit. This fall, we are especially loving baker boy hats! Pair with a casual weekend outfit, as you run errands with the family.
With morning temperatures slightly dropping, but nowhere near freezing, a great alternative to a jacket/coat is a big, oversized scarf. It adds an interesting layer to any outfit. We especially love a good plaid print during this season.
With some days still reaching over 80 degrees, perhaps it’s premature to pull out the over the knee boots, however, now is a good time to swap the open-toe sandals with a fun bootie. Whether you prefer a stiletto, kitten, or chunky heel, there are many options in varying price points. We are head over heels, pun intended, with Everlane’s versatile Boss Bootie. A beautifully crafted and comfortable bootie that can easily go from day to night.
5. Chunky Sweaters
Alas, sweater weather! Whether you prefer wool, cashmere, or more of a lightweight texture, don’t hesitate to get cozy with a chunky knit! Find one in a warm autumn hue and pair it with your favorite pair of jeans, a skirt, or even leggings for a super comfortable and fashionable outfit.
