Wear Me: 3 Fall Outfits You Need to Put On…

I decided to skip my favorites post this week and replace it with my 3 favorite Fall outfits instead. Crisp, sunny weather is the perfect backdrop for displaying your fall wardrobe. Trust. Nothing obliterates a strategically put together outfit worse than sideways rain. Avoid that sh*t like people hawking their child’s latest school fundraiser. Sorry. Not….

Anyway, I’ve put together a compilation of my favorite go-to outfit combinations. They’re pretty versatile and range from comfy chic to can’t really breathe in my pants but they make my legs look slim, to Olsen vogue. I find that I tend to make my way through each of these looks and am pretty pleased with the wearability to compliment ratio. You should be too…

1.  Oversized Everything 

The best is usually reserved for last but in this case, I just couldn’t wait. This is by far, hands down, tongue wagging, my most esteemed, most adored look. And it’s not just because it fools people into thinking you’re perf underneath the extra fabric (although that may be a welcome side effect). Everything about the look is classic. Oversized sweaters and tops are actually very clean looking, compared to the slummy sloth like persona some may reserve for them. When paired with slim bottoms, cute skirts and great shoes – the end result is practically flawless. The boyfriend look has been in style for years and is only going to continue its reign. The level of comfort is unsurpassable and the style factor is pretty high if you know how to create the look. See?

2. Comfy Chic

 You probably think by now that I’m a hefty fashionista of approximately 300 lbs but you’d be mistaken. I just like to dress like one. (And ain’t nothing wrong with being 300 lbs and stylish either – take no offense). Anyway, oversized items can definitely fall into this category but I like to keep them separate because this look is more all encompassing that the above. To give you a visualization – think boyfriend cardigans with leather pants, sweatshirts with crepe pleated skirts and 4 inch stilettos with long drapey tops and sweaters. The epitome of comfy chic is the ability to stay comfortable yet exude style. See?

3. Olsen Chic

 I know I know, if you think you’re sensing a pattern here – you’re right. I am ride or die for the hobo chic look. If you’ve never tried it before, or have no idea what I’m speaking of, there’s probably a cartoon thought bubble above your head filled with raggedy clothes, paper bags as hats, and a shopping cart as an accessory). You’d be mistaken. The hobo look is something that’s made easy to envision if you take the Olsen twins as muses. They’re not only known for their shenanigans on Full House but their profound presence in the emergence of the hobo chic look. A little 90’s, a lot of layering, a couple overpriced pieces made to look like items purchased out of a bin at a vintage garage sale and a ton of attitude. I will mention that their 90’s grunge look has evolved into more iconic pieces, cleaner lines and high fashion simplistic items yet they manage to still stay true to the pleasantly excessive layering and 100 shades of black. Black is after all, the new Black. The Olsens have perfected the laid back yet pretentious look to a T. You can too. See?

My favourite places to pick up pieces like these right now are Aritzia, Zara and Revolve. Fall is by far the best time of year to start trying new trends, gathering iconic & long lasting wardrobe pieces, and layering up. Do it.
