How to Elevate your Fall Outfit
Street style has become just as major as the runway shows themselves – and many of us are following fashion mavens and bloggers to see what they’re wearing and how they’re wearing it. I showed you my favorite fall 2016 trends and how they were worn on the runway – and now let’s dive deep into street style fashion …and see how your fall outfit can be taken up a notch.
Burgundy has been a hot color for fall since 2012 when the shade oxblood broke out as the seasons signature color. And it looks like it will continue strong for fall 2016. It’s an easy color to wear and even a touch of the color gives your outfit richness and sophistication. I love the idea to mix different shades of burgundy together, pair it with an unexpected powder blue or wear it from head to toe in a monochromatic look. By adding a belt, these looks have become more cohesive, flattering and polished.
This muted fall orange, that pantone calls Pumpkin Spice is a rich tone for fall. I loved to see how its being incorporated with black, white and print in the images above… but…that little belt is tying together the entire look.
Leopard print has become a staple for fall and you’ll want to keep it classy and sassy. There are many great tips out there for wearing leopard and I think one of the key things is to wear the print and not let it wear you. You can mix leopard print with other neutrals, or prints and then unify a seamless look with a solid belt. Choosing the right belt will depend on the color of print, your outfit and your body type. However, the one belt and color you can always count on for every body and outfit – is the classic ADA Wrap belt in black or tan.
How do you give your seasons-old coat a fresh new look? Add an ADA belt. Every year I get a call or email from a customer excited to tell me that she personalized her coat and added shape to her puffer jacket with one of our belts. And its true, ditching the generic belt your coat comes with and adding your own leather belt to it – will get you excited! It’ll give your coat a pop of luxe and stand you out from the crowd.
I couldn’t be more excited for the pant suit trend!! I think they are sharp, chic, sophisticated and I love them. BUT even the best tailored suits can look boxy and too masculine. Adding a belt high on the waist can define your figure and make you look slimmer, pulled together and more feminine. Here are my favorite pant suit belts options.
A beautiful flowy dress worn under a coat, sweater or shirt – can look very frumpy. And if that’s not the look you’re going for – a quick easy fix is a waist-cinching belt. Many women know how to wear belts with pants or over a coat but not quite sure how to wear them with a dress. Choosing the right belt for your body is important and I have a great video, “A belt for every body” showing you how to wear a belt for your body type. Good news is – the ADA Wrap Belt is a belt for every body.
