As promised in my recent post, Summer's Last Hoorah: Welcome to my series of how-to's dedicated to transitioning into fall style using some of last season's biggest trends! I'm all about being a smart spender. After all, if you save tons on one item, you'll have room in your budget to buy more. ;) And if you can stylishly integrate a lot of what you already own, then you're free to splurge on the really fun trends (such as the items I'm wearing below: the cozy, graphic print statement sweater and the pop-of-color shoe to complement all of fall's moody color trends)!
|Denim Shirt: Zara. Leopard Sweater: Nina Charles for Kasper A.S.L. Neon Skirt: Express. Blue Suede Pumps: Bakers Shoes. Necklaces & Bow Belt: Forever 21. Bow Ring: Kate Spade. Sorry, none are available. See the Shop the Look below for links to similar items at varying price ranges. ;)|
In this series, I'll take one or two (or more, depends on how the mood strikes!) major spring trends/staples and integrate them into an au courant fall look. For this installation, I decided to focus on last season's major neon trend and the quintessential spring/summer style staple, the denim shirt. Everyone went a little nuts with the neon trend. We saw neon statement necklaces (guilty), neon clutches (guilty), neon bottoms, neon tops & neon shoes (guilty on all fronts). If your neon skirt doesn't look exactly like mine, it doesn't matter. Any silhouette will work with the formula below:
To recap: take your neon bottom (skirt, pants, shorts, any will do) & your denim shirt. Add a graphic print sweater, a bad-ass brightly hued shoe, sprinkle in some of your favorite accessories (statement necklace and ring, and don't forget the waist-cinching belt for that sweater!) and you're ready to spring into fall!
Tune in next week, same time, for the second installation of my Spring Into Fall series!
