“Don’t miss out on something that could be great just because it could also be difficult!”
Wherever you live, there is probably going to be more of a chance to wear sweaters or layers in the Fall, so how do you find the ones that are the most flattering and fun for you to wear? Since in Utah we haven’t had the time to really get into this trend yet (it’s definitely coming just not here yet), so here are some throwbacks to some of my favorites…
I have always loved Fall more than Winter, mainly because Winter is just a little too cold for me, and in Fall I get the chance to layer and get really creative with my outfits while at the same time not freezing to death 😉
I am a very visual person, so colors and patterns really appeal to me, but I am also tactile, which means that I really care about how something feels. There’s nothing worse than finding a cool sweater and it itching you all day because it’s not soft. My youngest is definitely like this – we have bought him clothes over the years and if he doesn’t like how it feels, he will NEVER wear it, and I don’t blame him. Honestly the only time I ever sacrifice comfort for style is with my shoes – LOL!
So, to answer my first question, here are some great ideas for wearing layers and sweaters for the Fall and Winter months:
Wear a large oversized sweater with some skinny pants. Wearing oversized pieces means they can tend to make you look larger than you are, but when you wear slimming or skinny pants or a skirt you can offset that appearance.
Wear a fitted turtle neck with a cute casual skirt and pumps or boots. As the weather gets colder adding a pair of funky tights is a great way to add that extra pop to the outfit as well.
Wear a fitted sweater with an accent belt, and then add another layer of a long cardigan for a unique take on sweater weather attire. The ruffle skirt and boots are the perfect compliment too!
Wear a chunky cardigan with some booties. Because I paired this cardigan with the fitted skirt, just like the oversized sweater, it prevents the perception of being larger than you are!~
Embracing each season can be as easy as finding a style that makes you feel at home in that season. The key is not to let the weather (the thing you can’t control) decide how you feel about what you wear and how you feel. It can be all too tempting to wear comfy, warm, cozy things in the Fall and Winter, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still look amazing. Sweats can be cute – especially the leopard print or camo ones I have seen recently. Enjoy experimenting with styles that could work for you, and don’t be afraid to try something a little funkier than usual. Add a scarf here or there, wear a hat, layer like crazy and have fun!
Have a great day 🙂
