After this weekend’s cooler temperatures, the time has finally come to say farewell flip-flops and welcome back warm, cozy sweaters. The season of fall fashion is upon us and we’re excited to introduce a new series here at 365Barrington.com called Barrington Style! We’ve asked the ladies at LUXE wearhouse to help us rev up our cold-weather wardrobes with weekly style tips, tricks and trends. And they’re kicking things off today with four key pieces they say are “MUST HAVES” this fall for fashionable looks that are affordable, effortless and always in style.
1. DENIM: The Perfect Jean for Every Occasion
There are 3 styles of jeans that every woman should have in her wardrobe for Fall this year. We love the versatility of denim this season! Grab a skinny jean and pair it with a tall boot or a bootie. Throw on an oversized sweater for an easy, chic style or a great chiffon top and heels for a dressier look. We love the flare jean for a less fitted option and a more polished look. The flare style looks great with a heel or a classic flat. The boyfriend jean is the go-to jean for a relaxed weekend look. Wear it with a plaid shirt or chunky sweater for a day out with you kids. We love the boyfriend jean with a bootie, but it can also be paired with a sneaker for a more casual feel.
2. DRESS: The Shift Dress is a Must Have for Fall
The Shift Dress is the perfect Day to Night item in your wardrobe. It’s possibly the easiest dress you will ever wear! You can wear it with tights and a boot during the day and dress it up with heels and a statement necklace for a night out. There are some great prints for Fall, but if you are looking for something timeless, a shift dress in black or mocha will never go out of style.
3. SHOE: The Bootie is the Shoe of the Season
What other shoe can transition as smoothly from day to night? The Bootie is one of the most versatile shoes that looks cute with a skirt or dress as well as with a pair of jeans. We love the bootie in a neutral color like taupe or black. It’s the perfect way to complete your Fall outfit.
4. SWEATER: Keep it Cozy for Fall
When we think of Fall we couldn’t imagine the season without our favorite cozy sweaters. Anything goes this Fall from chunky knits, to fine gauge merino and of course luxurious cashmere. We love the open cardigans and how they can be layered so effortlessly over tops and dresses. Whether it’s a classic pullover, a striped button up cardigan or a sweater coat, you will definitely want to incorporate a couple of cozy sweaters into your closet this Fall.
We’ll also be hosting a regular Barrington Style contest each week, with prizes from LUXE wearhouse on the line! This week, LUXE will be giving away one $25 gift certificate to spend at their shop.
