Fall Fashion: Going Neutral With Denim

What do your wear when you have to run errands or go christmas shopping? I say something comfortable, cute and simple is always the way to go when you have to be on your feet all day. Now when we say comfortable we are not talking sweats and Ugg’s, not that there is anything wrong with them. Although we love our sweats at home, when going out we like to add a touch of elegance even to the most simple look. Think blue jeans and a dressy jacket or black leggings and a long button down sweater.

You can’t go wrong with a pair of jeans and a neutral colored sweater and boots in the fall. This look is simple, comfortable. See how I styled it below.

Going Neutral With Denim

I usually offer 5 ways to style a fashion item but today I am switching things up and giving some fashion terminology knowledge. The style word of the day is neutrals.

Neutrals: They are colors that don’t usually show up on the color wheel. They include black, white, gray, brown and beige. They are sometimes called earth tones or non colors. In other words they are colors not in the rainbow.

Neutral colors are great when it comes to style as they go with most outfits. For example if you are torn on which color boots to get for the winter. You are better off choosing a brown pair than a black pair although having both is even better.

Style Spotlight: Black Leather Jacket

When it comes to leather jackets you only need one good quality jacket that you’ll have for years. When the weather starts to cool, I always grab a leather jacket and it seems I am not the only one. Just Last Saturday both myself and my blogger BFF Kristin from It’s Kristin lifestyle blog had a black leather jacket on after our workout. We decided to both shoot with our leather jackets. See how Kristin styled her jacket here.

As you know I love wearing black, so it was no surprise that I paired my black jacket with black skinny pants which are another signature item and a favorite of mine. To break the black I wore a nude color long sleeved top with nude heels.

There are so many ways to wear a leather jacket and I have a few suggestions for you below!

5 Ways to Style a black leather jacket

  1. All Black: Wear your black leather jacket with black pants, black top, black shoes but accessorize with gold and wear a different color bag like brown, red or any print of your choice.
  2. Black leather and Blue Denim: Wear your black leather jacket with a black top, blue ankle length skinny jeans and a black pointy toe heel.
  3. Casual Leather look: Wear your black leather jacket with loose boyfriend jeans, a white tee and white converse sneakers.

Fall Fashion: How to layer with style

After the rather confusing weather patterns we have been experiencing in Boston it finally feels like fall! One could argue that fall brings the best fashion because of the different textures and layers that are added to our outfits. What I like about fall is that you can wear the same thing in different ways just by switching around the warm layer. In this look I started off with an all black base and layered the look with a faux fur vest and nude chunky heel pumps.

Style Spotlight: Black off shoulder jumpsuit

It sure has not been feeling like fall the past few days here in Boston. Some days are 75 degrees which is very unusual this time of year. Some people are not really happy about this but I say bring on the sunshine. As much as I like fall, I still prefer warm weather.

This Black off shoulder jumpsuit that I got from Gozon is perfect for this transitional weather. I love that the shoulder can be worn in different ways, all the way down, on the side and as a regular top. Throw on a denim jacket when it gets cooler and you are all set and looking fab.

The Super Easy Way to Wear Floral Print

The idea that bright colors should be saved for summer should be tossed away and I am glad that the fashion world has come on board. It used to be that white and other bright colors are not to be worn after labor day. Granted warm tones like brown and plum look good on fall jackets and winter coats, however mustard yellow jackets and blush blazers look just as great in the cooler weather. Today the focus is on the floral print and how to wear it.

The Super Easy Way to Wear a Floral Print

Its the beginning of fall and I am rocking florals and yellow! What can I say Iike to live on the edge. This outfit includes a very bold mustard yellow color from the blazer and purse while the blue jeans balance out the look.

The casual ruffle floral top from Gozon, is the star and anchor of this outfit therefore I selected the accessories, shoes and pants around it. This is a good way to figure out how to style your outfits, find the item that anchors the look and style with items that complement it. When it comes to wearing a floral print like this one it is important not to overdo it by mixing it with another print. Best to pair floral prints with solid prints like I did with these blue jeans. Because the weather is getting cooler in the evenings the mustard yellow blazer was the perfect fit to provide a layer of warmth.

Accessories play a key role in completing this outfit. Bead bracelets, a layered necklace and the Instagram famous Daniel Wellington White Classic Petit Bondi Watch. You can get the same watch or any watch of your choice on the Daniel Wellington website for 15% off! Just use the code STILETTOS at checkout.
