Falling into Autumn with Carylee! Posted on 26 Aug 07:26 , 22 comments
We asked the incredibly stylish Carylee to answer a few questions regarding her fall fashion favorites:
What is your favorite clothing item that serves as a great transitional piece from summer to fall?
I'm not sure I can pick just one! I would say a good neutral bootie, some wine colored skinny pants, and my olive military vest are three foolproof transitional pieces, either on their own or all together!
What trends are you most excited to see this fall?
I'm all about prints and vintage florals that can take you through fall and winter right now!
What type of necklaces do you wear together for a great layered look?
My favorite right now is definitely a statement necklace layered over a metal bib. It creates such a stunning look, and I've been able to get use out of some statement necklaces I wasn't interested in wearing anymore thanks to the idea of layering! But otherwise, it's all about proportion for me. I find myself preferring long necklaces over shorter ones, but sometimes you need a little something to fill the void closer to your neckline, so layering a shorter one with a longer one is a nice trick. When I do this, I usually like to pick two that are similar in weight so it really looks like one necklace verses two.
Which clothing items in your closet are your go to pieces for a great layered look for cooler temperatures?
A) A great chambray can go a long way. I love mine because it is lightweight enough to wear in the summer, but it works well for a bottom layer in cooler months. Layering a chambray under a dress is a pretty easy way to repurpose some of your short sleeved dresses for fall and winter.
B) A lightweight long sleeved striped tee! It works as a great base layer! I prefer a white long sleeved tee with black pin stripes. That type of striped pattern is really versatile and adds interest under any kind of vest or jacket. In fact, try it under your chambray with a couple of layered necklaces!
C) Scarves, scarves, and more scarves. They're such an effortless way to look put together without even trying. Bonus points if it's in a fun color or print!
