One of the ways I have tried to dress more consciously over the past year is to really think about what my seasonal ‘look’ will be in advance of the season. For spring/summer this year, I was very into embroidered and ethnic investment dresses, taking me from errands at home to BBQ’s in Tahoe. I found that I was even sewing and designing similar items since they represented my overall mood and aesthetic of the season.
As the temperatures get a bit cooler, I am changing my look up from tassels and poms, but still in a way that feels easy and appropriate for my new lifestyle. My 2018 Fall Fashion philosophy surrounds around bold color, texture, and shine. That means even though I love prints, I will be cutting down on the amount of prints I buy this season (choosing instead to design my own or rent them), in favor of buying some more classic, but still bold items my wardrobe lacks.
I am loving head to toe color this fall, in velvets, faux fur, faux leather, mohair, chunky knits, and silks. The contrast of pitting one beautiful color and texture against another has actually opened up my wardrobe, as almost any bright color can be combined with it’s equal. Wearing a spectrum of color is also so uplifting as we approach colder weather, as the world seems to fade into black and brown.
Dressing this way for the ‘season’ allows me to feel comfortable buying a bunch of items upfront, and then feeling like I have unlimited combinations so I don’t resort to buying last minute trendy pieces that I don’t need. I am especially partial to these bold solids because there is no reason why I can’t wear them for years to come. So get ready to see a lot of bold colors on repeat, because every day I find a new combo that I love!
