Happy friday, friends! If you’re a follower on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed an intense focus on styling, lately. Am I right? Seems as if most of my Monday weekly rundowns always involve that planned ‘save for inspo’ feature. But in truth, I look forward to these weekly style sessions, as it brings out creativity I feared lost.
For those who may have missed it, or if you’ve landed here new – I introduced and titled my ‘save for inspo‘ Instagram posts back in June – when the shipping of all my new arrivals delayed, masks became the new accessory, and dressing rooms permanently closed due to the pandemic. It came to a point where content was limited and worry set in. Burnt out, with a lack of motivation I often questioned reason in moving forward. I quickly realized I wasn’t alone in feeling this way, and the majority of what I was feeling stemmed from the pandemic itself and the forced way of change. Despite our circumstance, I still held a desire to inspire and sought other ways to attain consistency. So instead of the post neglect, I decided to make the best of the content I do have. Each week on Instagram, I’ve been posting throw back photos and styling an item multiple ways in stories. The specific item is often out of stock, tho I always link similar. And recently, my ‘ways of wear’ include items available now. You can view any of the mirror looks shown below, here. This way, you’ve all sorts of style inspiration to save and utilize! My resolve to all has brought relief and hopefully provides you the stream of inspiration you’re looking for in your follow. My hope in these weekly features is to spotlight versatility, inspire you to shop your own closet and find your creativity whilst doing so.
So, I’ve up’d my game in the ‘multiple ways of wear’ share and thought to document it here for you in today’s post. With Fall just around the corner, my choice in styling has shifted to Fall fashion staples. These photos may be throw backs, but the items worn are certainly not. They all are still in closet and as in past, set for rotation. Below I’ve shared 4 Fall fashion staples that aren’t going out of style any time soon.
1. Plaid blazer
I’ll be honest and say the plaid blazer is one of those pieces I had to warm up to. I am sure my hesitation stemmed from it being categorized trendy, but sometimes a trend comes and sticks around season after season. Before I knew it, the plaid blazer secured a permanent spot in my wardrobe. Fall is near and I, of course, am reaching for the wear. See below for a few dozen ways to style this staple.
2. Knit midi skirt
I’ve always categorized the pencil midi skirt as dressy. After styling a few ways this past year and it a constant in several capsule wardrobes, it has proven versatile outside the office. Layering up the midi skirt with jackets and cardigans make this piece fall-appropriate.
3. Leopard booties
With the return of the PSL this past week, it’s only natural this fell as feature. Ya’ll know my love for leopard, so naturally adding a boot to my wardrobe is essential. More exotic patterns like snakeskin, zebra, and tiger have recently been thrown into the trend mix; the concept of styling printed boots stays the same!
4. collarless longline blazer
Tho it’s titled a blazer on site, I consider this more a cardigan. Regardless, it’s the color of this layering piece that truly places it in my Fall wardrobe. Camel, cognac, or really anything that has even a hint of brown undertone fits the category well. Catch several ways to incorporate this staple into your line up below.
There you have it, four Fall fashion staples with options for wear! Hopefully you’ll find this a helpful resource for style this next season! Until next time, thanks for stopping by! xoxo
