Fall is a great time to have fun with your closet because you get to layer different pieces, bundle up with scarves and jackets and play with texture and color. I’ve boiled down my fall fashion to three basics here for you!
Warm Texture: Classic cooler-weather materials like denim, cable knit and wool can be modernized and made a tad more masculine when paired with studded details and military trimmings. Try pairing denim jacket over a sweater, or opt for buckles and snaps on a coat. Leather accessories and boots are a traditional way to add a little rugged warmth.
Bold Colors: Color and confidence are always in style. So make a statement with a pop of color on a grey day! Mustard jeans add visual interest to a classic look and you can never go wrong with the colors of fall: maroons, khaki greens, and navy!
Exciting Patterns: Since fall is the perfect time to layer a few pieces, make your look more dynamic with a little pattern! Plaid is classic and perfect to utilize the reds and browns of the season, and the tribal print is still on point! Feeling a little more daring? Camo and leopard print, in the right dose and color, will make you stand out this fall.

At this time of year, there seems to be countless reasons to smile. Visiting extended family, sharing an intimate moment with a loved one, Christmas work parties, finally seeing friends you haven’t seen in ages, welcoming a New Year… the list seems endless.
So why not dress up your smile? Ties bring attention to your face and are a fun way to add style, festivity, and excitement to your look.
Holiday reds pair perfectly with wintery silvers, icy whites and cool blues. Mixing colors and patters makes dressing up more fun. Feeling daring? Try bow ties! Parties are a great time to test these out because there is no dress code and you can really play around.
No matter how you celebrate make sure to have fun with you style and the ones you love.
