There’s nothing I love more than creating outfits out of simple, effective, and classic pieces. This also might be because I have a 5-month-old at home, and these days, I need pieces in my wardrobe that will make me feel like a million bucks (even if I have only slept for two hours). Case in point: AG’s newest pieces for fall have me swooning. Because I have to now pre-plan my outfits for the week, I found eight pieces from the L.A.-based fashion brand that are as chic as they are easy to style. Here are the four outfits I have on rotation.
For anyone who knows me, this no-color-color-combo is my jam. I’ve been an advocate for the combo since I could dress myself, and this season is no different. There’s something about a cream miniskirt and a black fitted turtleneck that makes me want to walk to Café de Flore as if I were a resident of Paris. This season, I’ll incorporate a trendy piece to this forever classic by slipping on a pair of over-the-knee leather boots with this look.
Plaid blazers and skinny jeans go together like peanut butter and jelly, Chanel and quilting, Kanye and Kanye… you get the picture. I’m reserving this outfit for days when my newborn refuses to sleep and I have 10 minutes to get dressed in the morning. Rather than going for classic black and white (I know, the horror), I’m going to switch it up with a gray skinny and slate blue plaid blazer. My new white loafers will work perfectly with this outfit and will have me out the door for my Monday meetings.
One of the biggest styling trends I saw during fashion month on the street style scene was how these stylish girls were draping their sweaters over their shoulders. I’m planning on pulling off the same slightly preppy look with this tie-dye dress and navy blue sweater and a chunky gold necklace for a touch of glam.
Well, I am from L.A., and I can promise you, moto jackets and high-waisted jeans are our thing. I love the shade of this pistachio (a huge color trend for fall) as well as the length of this lush suede jacket. I’ll wear this outfit combo on a crisp fall Saturday morning when I’m making my way to Alfred’s for my go-to latte.
