Fall Sophistication

Today I’m giving you a really easy outfit to look sophisticated this fall, while still keeping things weekend chic.  Last weekend my husband and I went to an open house showing. I wanted to appear classy, but also keep it casual for the weekend since it wasn’t something we needed to dress up for. What I came up with incorporated all my favorite aspects of fall, while still keeping the sophistication I was looking for. Read on for tips to achieve this effortless look!

1. Incorporate both plaid and leather into your outfit.

Fall is all about layers and items like leather jackets and scarves are a classic combination to master the layering. To me nothing pairs better than plaid and leather! On their own they are closet staples, but can tend to create very different looks when worn separately. Together they create the perfect marriage! I’m looking forward to create more looks with the plaid and leather combination this fall.



2. Wear jeans and heels.

When you’re wanting a fall look you typically don’t think jeans and heels, but the combination will never go out of style and can be worn all year. Jeans and heels will always be my go to outfit. I love the length that it brings to legs and the combination is instantly classy. If you’re looking to be more fall wearable, this look could easily be paired with some boots and look just as cute!


3. Wear neutral colors.

Colors in the neutral palette are very warm and soothing to the eye. They will always be the most sophisticated colors for that reason. When mastering the layering for fall, it is so easy to layer neutral colors! The end result will look effortless.

      Thank you Natasha! It didn’t feel right NOT wearing heels, because I am such a jeans and heels kind of girl!
