With the Fall / Winter season being right around the corner, I'm sure I'm not the only one who's been anxious to do a closet audit! Something about the cool weather and having to layer clothing to stay warm makes us want to level up, especially style wise! We get the urge to grab brand new pieces that speak to who we are (or who we want to be) as the year wraps up and a new year approaches.
While it's always good to embrace the incoming season's new trends and make them your own, it's even better to shop smart and to incorporate those timeless styles that'll always be around, no matter what. In doing so, you can create a signature style season after season, while also dressing in a way that saves MAJOR coins in the long run because you'll be able to remix the same classic looks in a million different ways. Stay ahead of the curve with just a few of my personal fave timeless, chic styles to get you ready for this Fall, along with style guides on how you can rock each one!
(P.S. I've curated similar shopping links for you to shop since the app that I originally created these looks on is no longer available!)
THIGH HIGH BOOTS & AN EMBELLISHED BELT
Giving you a two for one. Obvi, judging by the photo of me above, this is one of my FAVORITE looks to wear. Thigh high boots create a sexy yet chic effect to almost any fit while an embellished belt can make a look appear twice as expensive, even if it's super affordable. Investing in quality boots and belts will up your closet options a ton for seasons to come.
How to Wear it This Fall/ Winter: Pair your boots with a midi length wrap skirt, belted at the waist to create an outfit that's appropriate for almost any outing, from brunches with the girls to chilly nights out on the town.
A SEXY SLIP DRESS
Years ago, lingerie inspired pieces made their way into ready to wear collections all over the world and they haven't left since. If you ask me, they won't be going anywhere anytime soon. Slip dresses give us a somewhat risqué way to incorporate the timeless, flirtatious feminity and comfort that we love so much in traditional nightwear.
How to Wear it This Fall / Winter: Throw on a poppin' faux fur jacket and a slick pair of gladiator heels for a sexy glam look.
OFF THE SHOULDER TOPS
Okay, these BETTER stick around because my closet is full of 'em! Always classy and charming, with a hint of sultry, off the shoulder tops are a never-ending closet must-have. Stock up on off the shoulder tops (otherwise known as bardot tops) because they can add a flirty yet chic aspect to your favorite separates for years and years to come.
How To Wear it This Fall/ Winter: Pair it with a statement skirt and your favorite pair of boots. Accessorize it with a simple neck piece.
As the chilly weather approaches, remember to grab up these timeless essentials and hold on to them for dear life! They can drastically increase the shelf life of your wardrobe! #styledbysharra
