Happy Thursday everyone and an exciting Thursday it is! Today is the deadline for this great competition ModCloth is hosting with a few bloggers to promote their Fall pieces for the season. They reached out to me last week and asked that us bloggers put together a collage showcasing how to layer some of their Fall staple pieces. Of course, I jumped at the opportunity and here is what I came up with for the competition! What do you think of these looks! Which one describes you?
My inspiration for this collage was mixing patterns and textures while keeping each look pretty neutral for every girl of every style to wear.
Look 1: You know I love maxis! And since we are in our cooler months the best way to transition a maxi is to add a simple sweater. I was completely drawn to the thick stripe detail and the color combo of taupe and cream on this maxi. I paired it with a slouchy yet cozy hunter green sweater to embrace those brisk fall days. At this point, the look was feeling a bit bohemian so I ran with that vibe and accessorized with a wool panama hat and a great pair of booties. Of course, a hippie look wouldn't be complete without an oversized tote and luckily, Modcloth carries this great two toned bag to finish off the look!
Look 2: How fun is this look? I fell in love with this amazing sequenced dress and knew I had to use it somehow in this competition. For me, this look is all about the day to night transition. Start your day off with layering a simple graphic tee over this super feminine dress. The juxtaposition of these two pieces will surely have you standing out (in a good way)! Now it is Fall so a great coat is in order and I felt this large textured collared one did the trick. It beautifully plays off the color pallet of the existing look and you can never go wrong with a large collar! For you errands during the day, top the look off with a floppy hat and when your headed for the night out on the town, just shed all your layers and you're left with a sequenced dress and a great pair of nude heels!
Look 3: I call this the every girl look! It is so simple yet chic, every girl of every style can wear it! I started this look off with a great pair of riding boots - a Fall essential. These particular boots grabbed my attention because of their two toned texture of suede and leather. It is a simple detail that goes a long way in the fashion world! Of course, tucked into out great boots is a pair of dark denim skinnies and a white blouse to top off our basics. I wanted to keep this look pretty simple so I pulled back on the reins when it came to layering and I finished this look off with a lovely coat. No need for a hat, no need for a scarf, this coat does the trick. I went with plaid since this is a fall challenge after all and when I saw this one had a great fur collar, I was sold. It is a statement piece all on its own!
