Pleats Pleats & More Pleats
Pleats are everywhere this fall. My favorite way to wear this trend has been in the form of pleated skirts. Particularly those with a little bit more length to them. However, we don't discriminate here. All pleats are good pleats.
In case you haven't heard, it's a flat shoe fall. Calling all ballet flats, Mary Jane, and loafers lovers. It's your time to shine. Fashion people are spicing up their flats with fun socks, but that's not mandatory.
Layers are essential to take on the transitional weather we're all experiencing now. I recommend light layers like the open-stitch one pictured here. When you're layers are light you can add or take away as much as you need with ease. Think light basic tops, cardigans, leather jackets, bombers, and more.
Red is having a serious moment as of late, and it will continue to do so. Try the bold color on in whatever way speaks to you. Whether that's as a top, bottom, outerwear, accessory, or even with your socks, try playing around with this vibrant hue this fall.
