Fall has always been my favorite season. I first experienced it on my trip to Washington, DC with Ben’s family 4 years ago and loved it ever since. There’s something so magical about this trasition… leaves and trees are supposed to be withering yet God found a way to make it beautiful and pleasing to the eyes, a reminder that there’s always a brighter side of things. I guess that’s why I’ve always leaned towards yellow, cream and orange! Now whenever I shop or even daydream about how my future house would like it, it would be in those colors :P
My love for dressing for fall is another story. The weather’s perfect as we’re coming from summer but winter’s next! The sun’s still high and bright yet the air’s crisp. You can layer as much as you want and still wear pretty long coats as it’s not too cold for those ugly puffy winter jackets :) I’ve said it again and again that denim’s been my uniform now and I’ve learned to incorporate it more to my outfits whenever I travel. I used to think that they were only for my casual weekends but now, I found out that when styled the right way, it could look dressy too! :) Here are 5 tips how you could wear denim during the fall:
1. Invest a pair of jeans that are made in a more stretchy material. I’ve learned that jeggings are your best bet but there are more stores now that sell denim that was made for you to move. Personally, I like to invest in GUESS jeans as they last you years. You would need a pair like this because you need to wear layers of heat-tech underneath them.
2. Pair your denim with a dressy coat. Jeans were made for casual wear but a long one in a classy color or a print takes it up a notch!
3. Wear fall’s colors. Not only will it look amazing in photos but you’ll fit right in with the locals! lol I noticed that Europeans don’t like to wear much color in their outfits so browns and neutrals are perfect if you want to blend in ;)
4. The ballet flats + jeans killer combination. It’s a classic for a reason! Fashion greats like Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O wore them and it always looked chic.
