Here are my favorite ways to feel stylish and take advantage of the opportunities for good dressing that this weather affords you.
Remember your favorite shades from summer? Wear them!
Nothing screams "celeb" like the combination of traditional woolen fall clothing with a slick pair of sunglasses. Very Gwenyth Paltrow. [See Below. IMG CRED ]
As you can see, even the chilliest of weather doesn't get between Gwen and her RayBans.
2) LAYER A LIGHTWEIGHT TURTLENECK
Who said turtlenecks have to be stuffy? Shove aside those thick, bulky knits until it's really winter. Instead, I propose you try a thin, dark-colored turtleneck for your fall dressing. Pair it with your favorite peacoat or statement necklace and you'll look slim and sophisticated.
3) COMBAT BOOTS
Did you succumb to last year's combat boot craze? So did I, and I'm dusting mine off for Fall '11. Make the look less punk and more eclectic by pairing preppier pieces, like a a woolen A-line skirt and tights, with your favorite roughed up boots.
Enjoy the season.
