I don’t often think about fashion rules, or much less about breaking them. I think, subconsciously, I follow style rules that I’ve learned growing up, but I don’t think about them consciously. The no-white-after-labor-day thing has always seamed strange to me because it’s such a random and unimaginative rule. But I never really questioned it, and I never felt the urge to wear white jeans in the fall or winter.
The holidays are upon us, and for my holiday outfit this year I’m going for merry and bright. I know a lot of people shop for a new holiday outfit, but this year I decided to forgo shopping (I’ve done a lot of that lately) I pulled this outfit together from my favorite bold and bright pieces. (My only bold and bright pieces?)
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I live in neutrals. And this outfit sums up my fall neutrals – greys, military greens and black. And you probably also know that I live in my military jacket. It’s my staple for spring and for fall. And cool summer evenings. And it fits easily over sweaters, so I can wear it even on mild winter days. So you see, I try to wear my military jacket all year round.
Pink and blush have slowly been taking over my closet lately. Pink is becoming a go-to color for me and I plan to wear pink into fall and winter. And I’m not the only one. Soft pinks and blushes are everywhere this fall. From pumps, to sneakers, to coats and moto jackets, pinks and blushes are all the rage.
Throwing on a military jacket over my chambray shirt dress is an easy way to continue wearing it into fall. Honestly, I’ll probably wear this dress into winter by pairing it with tights and tall boots. It’s one of the most versatile pieces of clothing I own. Dresses are great because you can get dressed in one step without worrying about tops and shirts to match with your bottoms.
