Getting a leg up on Fall Fashion

Fall and winter fashion are all about layers for me, and what is better staple piece and layering item them leggings?? Leggings are so great because they can be worn in a million different ways to make a million different looks. I love leggings tucked into boots, or worn with booties and a tunic length top. Velvet by Graham and Spencer, who are known for their ultra soft and comfortable fabrics have a fabulous pair of knit leggings, the Swoosie. {Wouldn’t love to know where that name came from??} They are the perfect pair to start your looks with, available in dark grey or black.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but is supposed to hit the 90’s this weekend, so I am still very much into summer clothes. Especially summer clothes that will transition into fall and winter outfits. Enter the Lace Trim Stripe Tank by Collective Concepts, it is obviously perfect for summer just by itself. But imagine it with a coordinating  color long sleeve shirt underneath it for fall, and a cropped leather jacket on top for winter, so chic!

Another great piece for layering, is an open cardigan. I love to wear an open cardigan with leggings, because then I can wear a shorter shirt and the open cardigan is long enough to cover my behind. The Cotton Bamboo Cardigan by Splendid is great because is has short sleeves, making it perfect for layering and lasting though all the seasons.

So enjoy the weather where ever you are and whatever it is and remember layering pieces are perfect now and perfect later. It all starts with the perfect pair of leggings!

 I think this would be lovely with a black long sleeve shirt under it for the fall and winter. You could even do some sort of patterned long sleeve if that is more your style.
