But sometimes when there is so much to choose from, it is really hard to pull together a great ensemble. Should I go for chic and sophisticated? Casual and sporty? Free wheeling bohemian? Professional working girl? (As in my chosen, not world's oldest!) Choices, choices, choices...
Well, I always think the best place to start is with a classic and timeless look. With that in mind, I have chosed my Perfect Outfit for Fall. Start with a pair of classic bootleg jeans. (Bootleg jeans are the most flattering style for every body shape, which makes them perfect!) I like a darker wash, since it tends to be more slimming, but I adore the more "lived-in" washes too.
Next, add a crisp button-down shirt. I just adore a fabulous white shirt, but I love to mix it up a little with ruffles, bows, or pintuck details, since it has a more girly flair than a basic button-down. Also, there is so much you can do with a great white shirt. You can wear it under a fitted vest or a belted sweater, you can wear unbuttoned and belted over a sparkly or lacy cami, and it works equally well with trousers, jeans or skirts. A definite wardrobe essential.
Next, top with a stylish belted jacket. While a classic blazer work just fine, this season I am going with this gorgeous motorcyle jacket. I love the way the belt emphasizes the waistline, and the angled zip pockets are also very flattering.
Finally, a pair of classic leather boots. The best thing about boots is that they can be worn with jeans, trousers, dresses and skirts! Very versatile. I like a boot with a 2 to 3.5 inch heel for added height (plus, it makes my legs look very long and gorgeous!)
