Do you ever see a trend and think “that is super cute and I totally want to try it but…I’m not really sure if I can pull it off?” Well, sometimes even I get this feeling. But, one of the things I love about fashion is trying new styles and daring to be different. So instead of worrying about it, I JUST DO IT. And so should you.
My most recent adventure has been playing with bare legs and booties. And I love it! This new Fall trend is fresh, unique and now is becoming more and more mainstream. Not to mention the fact that I am able to extend the life of certain pieces in my summer wardrobe, which means I am saving $$$. Always a plus.
For this particular look, I found one of my summer rompers in olive (which also happens to be my go-to color right now.) Then, I pulled an oversized grey sweater to throw on…you know for some warmth. Last, I slipped on my new favorite booties to finish off my Bare Legs and Booties look. Inspired to try this look? Here’s what you should do:
•Peruse your closet for dresses, skirts, shorts and rompers that are in olives, maroons, camels, greys and blacks. These are perfect colors for fall. All of these hues will coordinate great with booties in shades of brown, black, taupe and even grey (which is totally having a moment right now.)
•Look for fun layering pieces like oversized sweaters, leather jackets or blazers to transition the above pieces into Fall.
•Have a try on party in front of a mirror. Sometimes trying new trends can take a little while to get used to. Play with what you have! Try different combinations. Send me a pic if you aren’t sure!
•Find a look you love.
•Rock this new look with confidence!
Oversized Sweater: Forever 21
Romper: Abercrombie and Fitch (old) but here is a super cute similar one.
Jewels: Anthropolgie (old) but here is a similar one that I love
Side note: If you are shopping for booties and planning on wearing them with bare legs, look for a bootie style that isn’t going to cut your leg off. I ALWAYS look for styles that have a slight dip in the front. Or, try to choose a style that hits below the ankle. We want to make sure this look is elongating to your leg so TRUST ME ON THIS ONE. Not all booties are created equal so when in doubt…try it on!
Have fun with this look while it is still warm enough. Then when it gets too cold, just add some tights…but more about that later.
Until next Friday…
