Add Flowers to Your Fall Wardrobe

Florals are always fun to wear, and while they may be common in the spring, they are more unexpected in the months of fall. For those who do not want to let go of their pretty blooms quite just yet, here are a few tips on how you can add flowers to your fall wardrobe.

Floral Printed Pants
Floral printed pants may seem a bit much for many people, but these can actually be pulled off quite easily, and will instantly brighten up any gloomy fall days. To ensure that your look does not appear childish, opt for subtle florals against a dark background, and pair this with a neutral colored top, as well as minimal, neutral accessories.

Floral Earrings
Elegant floral earrings can easily become the focal point of your entire outfit, making it important for you to have a go-to pair that you can pair with a variety of items of clothing. The floral earrings from Sequin NYC are a great example of this, as their deep red color beautifully reflects the colors of fall, and will accentuate just about any outfit.

Embroidered Florals
Floral prints can be found just about everywhere, but embroidered florals have that extra special touch, and are also much more delicate and subtle than prints. Whether you opt for a floral embroidered handbag, or a skirt embroidered with flowers, this is a light and sophisticated way to add florals to your fall wardrobe.

Floral Dresses and Jumpsuits
The majority of people out there tend to wear florals as an accent, or as a small part of their overall outfit. However, if you are looking to really make a statement, opt for a long floral dress, or even a floral jumpsuit. Go for a floral print that is eye-catching and intense, and keep the rest of your accessories minimal, allowing your dress to really stand out.

Fall Colors
Since florals are a print that is usually on-trend in the spring months, many of the floral prints out there feature either delicate white and pastel patterns or bright tropical prints, neither of which really lend themselves well to the golden months of fall. Instead of opting for spring and summer-esque florals, try to find some that feature the colors of fall, from burnt reds to crisp browns to touches of gold.

Floral Shoes
Having florals on your shoes is quite unexpected, but is a great way to wear them subtly, without having them as part of your main outfit. Whether you opt for ankle boots or playful flats, try to find a pair that will work with several of your go-to fall outfits.

There are so many ways in which you can incorporate florals into your fall wardrobe, so long as you are willing to experiment a bit. Whether it may be with your shoes and earrings or a statement dress, do not be afraid to try out different looks until you find one that not only works for your body, but also for the season.

Let Leggings Transition You From Summer to Fall

Transitioning your favorite summer outfits into the cooler days of fall can often be quite difficult, but, as long as you have a couple of pairs of leggings, you should not have a problem. Leggings are extremely versatile, and are ideal for providing you with that extra bit of coverage and warmth, without detracting too much from the essence of your summery look.

Summer Slip Dress
Summer slip dresses can be slightly tricky to style for fall, but leggings make this so much easier. Simply wear a button-down shirt underneath your dress, and then a pair of leggings underneath. Pair this with some heeled ankle boots, as well as a pair of sunglasses to finish off the look.

Denim Jacket
Denim jackets are perfect for the cooler fall months, and, whether you opt for a longer or a cropped style, they work so well with leggings. Depending on how heavy your jacket is, you could wear just a tank top underneath, or a short sleeved summer t-shirt. If the day turns particularly warm, simply tie your denim jacket around your waist for a laid back, casual look.

Sweatshirts and Cardigans
If you have some summer tops that you usually wear with shorts, try pairing them with some leggings instead. Then, all you need to do is add a sweatshirt or a cardigan, and you are good to go. If you have opted for a summer crop top, try finding a cropped sweatshirt to wear with this, as this should give you enough coverage to ensure that you do not feel cold with your bare stomach.

Tailored Blazer
A black tailored blazer paired with some black leggings is beautifully chic, and works well with just a plain white t-shirt underneath. This look can be worn with some sneakers for the daytime, or with some heels for the evening, making it a fantastic transitional outfit if you need to quickly and easily go from day to night. Do not forget to bring along a spare bag too, as a large black leather bucket bag would be great for the day, whereas a smaller, colorful, clutch bag would add an extra stylish touch to an evening outfit.

Cropped Leggings
While full-length leggings tend to be most popular, cropped leggings are a great alternative, especially for fall. These allow you to reap all of the benefits of leggings, but still show a little bit of skin, which is always great before you need to cover up for the cold winter months.

An oversized scarf can really give you a surprising amount of warmth, meaning that you can still wear your flowy summer tops well into fall. Simply pair this with an oversized scarf and some sunglasses, and you will have an outfit that is perfect for a sunny fall day.

One of the main advantages to leggings is that they are so incredibly versatile, and can be styled in ways that allow you to wear them just about anywhere. Whether you pair them with your favorite summer dress, or with a t-shirt and a sweatshirt, these outfits are perfect for transitioning you to the next season.

New in Fall Footwear

Each season brings with it exciting new trends, and this fall is no exception, especially when it comes to footwear. From flats to block heels, these are the styles that you need to be keeping an eye out for this upcoming season.

Block Heels
In addition to being easier than thin, stiletto heels to walk in, block heels are also much better for the health of your feet, making them a trend that many women will welcome in this fall. While block heels were featured on quite a few shoe styles, they were most prevalent on ankle boots, making them shoes that you will be able to wear through the winter too. To allow your shoes to really make a statement, opt for a pair that boasts a more unique and interesting style, such as one that has been decorated with studs, or crafted from a richly colored velvet.

Slouchy Boots
Boots are often back on trend when fall rolls around, but, this season, it is slouchy boots that have really made their mark in the fashion industry. These boots are tall, but are quite slouchy around the ankles, and promise to instantly bring your wardrobe into the new season.

Loafers
Rather than traditional loafers, the loafers that you will be seeing everywhere this fall are more of a hybrid style, as they look as though they have been crossed with slides. These shoes are so convenient, as they are a slip-on style and do not feature any buckles or straps while being just as comfortable as a pair of slippers. These are best worn with cropped pants or dark denim, and should also be worn with bare feet, as socks will only make your whole outfit appear cluttered and chunky.

Red Ankle Boots
If you are only going to invest in one new pair of shoes this fall, let that be red ankle boots, as these were seen on just about every fall 2017 runway. Red is a bold color that exudes confidence and will give your fall outfits an instant update. When it comes to the heel, block heels are best to go for, as mentioned above, and this is also quite a classic heel, meaning that you are likely going to be able to wear these boots for years to come.

Cowboy Boots
Whether you love them or hate them, cowboy boots have been making quite an appearance on fashion runways, and are set to be a big trend this fall. While many designers styled their clothing with cowboy boots, it was the Calvin Klein runway that really stood out, as the boots here were styled in a casual but chic way, worn underneath track pants.

Purchasing a pair of on-trend shoes is a quick and easy way to give your whole wardrobe an update for the upcoming season, as your shoes can have a huge impact on the rest of your outfit. From red ankle boots to slide-on loafers, these are the top trends to keep in mind the next time you are out shopping for footwear.

Take Your Summer Maxi Into Fall

Maxi dresses are synonymous with the summer months, but there is no reason why you have to put your favorite maxi dresses away once fall rolls around. By keeping these styling tips in mind, you will be able to rock your maxi dress well into the autumn months, and even into the start of winter.

Add in a Vest
Once the end of summer rolls around, you are likely to want a bit of extra warmth, but will still want to show some skin. This is where a vest comes in, as this can be worn over your maxi dress but left open, meaning that your whole dress is still on show, but the upper half of your body will have some extra coverage. While a vest works best with a maxi dress with sleeves, you would still be able to pull this look off with a sleeveless dress, although you may need to be more careful with the accessories you choose.

A Light Sweater and Ankle Boots
Layering your maxi dress with a light sweater and a pair of ankle boots is a great way to take it into the months of fall. If your sweater makes the whole outfit appear too bulky, try cinching in the waist of your maxi dress with a skinny belt, as this will really flatter your figure.

Add in a Scarf
Scarves are perfect for giving your body that extra bit of warmth, and can also add a completely new dimension to your maxi dress. As a general rule of thumb, try to opt for a solid colored scarf if your maxi dress features prints, or a printed scarf if your maxi dress is a solid color, as you want the two to work together rather than compete with each other.

A Cropped Jacket
The shorter length of a cropped jacket is perfect for accentuating a maxi dress, while giving you some extra coverage at the same time. A cropped denim jacket is a classic way to go if you are seeking out a more casual vibe, while those who are after something slightly dressier may want to opt for a cropped leather or military-style jacket.

Wear a Shirt Underneath
Layering your maxi dress with a shirt underneath will help to keep you warmer, while really adding a sense of personal style to your outfit. A t-shirt is all you would need for those warmer days, while a turtle-neck may be a better option if it is quite chilly outside.

Wear It As a Skirt
A maxi dress can quickly be transformed into a maxi skirt, giving you a whole new item of clothing to play with in your wardrobe. All you need to do is wear a blouse or a sweater over the top of your dress, leaving just the bottom half showing.

While wearing a maxi dress in the fall does take a bit more effort and thought than it does in the winter, you will no doubt be able to put together some stunning outfits for the cooler months. Whether you pair your dress with a scarf and a cropped jacket, or layer it up with a shirt, do not be afraid to experiment when it comes to creating new looks with your maxi dresses.

Fall Shopping Guide

The coming of fall means it is time to change out your closet again. Everyone has their favorite outfits that survive from year to year, but you’re likely just a little in love with some trends that Fashion Week brought with it earlier in the year. OROGOLD fully understands that you might need a little reminder of what is in for fall though. Old favorites have made a come back for this year, but there are plenty of newer things to experiment with if you want as well. These won’t be all the trends and you should always remember that fashion is constant experimentation. Feel free to simply use these suggestions as a starting point rather than what you have to do.

Obvious Jewelry
Cooler weather tends to mean people start getting ill and looking less than their best. The current trends will let you counteract that though. Larger, more obvious jewelry is in style for this fall. Hoop and dangling earrings are particularly fashionable. The shining looks of the jewelry aren’t meant for making an outfit though. They are meant to serve as ways to highlight the part of an outfit you want people to look at or to help bring out the color of your makeup or eyes for a more vibrant look. This should help you look your best even if the changing weather starts to get to you a little. Just remember not to go too extravagant with your jewelry. Accent yours looks without dominating them.

Flared Pants
There is a distinct trend towards flared pants legs for fall. This trend continues to emerge and only seems to be getting stronger. They offer a nice contrast to the figure-hugging clothing many opt for in summer and bring a casual air to the fall season. OROGOLD recommends at least experimenting with this trend as it can also offer a way to worry less about the temperamental fall weather. A good pair of flared pants is often good regardless of the weather being warmer or cooler than expected unlike some other looks. This makes them flexible in addition to stylish. That combination is hard to beat when it comes to fashion.

Woman street style.

Long Sleeves
Everyone has tucked their hands in their sleeves to stay warm occasionally, but the upcoming trend makes this an element of style. Look for tops with longer sleeves that drape down past your wrists. The style tends to favor sleeves that fully engulf the hands, but you may wish to favor ones that only mostly do simply for ease of wear when you’re out and about. The look offers a stylish disdain for convention while giving you the appearance of a dramatically longer frame. You may want to think about whether you prefer this look or long gloves, which are also in, when trying to plot out fall outfits. Each one will determine a lot about the outfits your might favor.

You’ve still got some time before fall fully hits you, and you can use that time to find your new outfits. There’s no shame in sticking to old stand-bys though. With the trend towards accessorizing, you can even update your old favorite relatively easily and remain in style. OROGOLD believes you can achieve a lot with an older idea, but we might be a little biased. Regardless, you should get working on your fall look soon or you might find yourself dealing with the cold before you’re ready.
