How to Win at Fall Fashion

Outfit Details: H&M sweater // GRLFRND denim // Forever 21 leather mules (also love these!) // Prada sunglasses // Charming Charlie earrings (under $15!)

Every season that comes around brings new trends and along with those trends come challenges and fall fashion is no exception. How do I style this piece? How will it look on my shape? How long will this trend be a thing?

I’ve learned a lot about myself specifically when it comes to fashion and what works for me and what doesn’t. I thought it might be helpful to share some tips that I’ve discovered along my journey through the fashion blogger world.

Don’t buy/wear something JUST because it’s trendy. Most likely you’ll end up regretting your purchase and getting rid of it further down the line if you only purchased it because everyone else was. Learn what works for you and stick with that!

If you do find a trend that you absolutely LOVE and that you know you’ll actually wear, find it at an affordable price point. DON’T splurge on trendy items. If it’s something that you’ll only wear for a few months before it’s out of style then it isn’t worth investing in. Example: the leather mules I’m wearing in this post are under $30 (!!!) and so on trend. Some of my favorite places to find trendy/affordable pieces are Zara, H & M, Forever 21, ASOS, and Boohoo.

Buy pieces in flattering cuts/colors. If there is a trend that you are loving then find it in a color/print/style that you know you already love. For example, I love the lace up/sleeve detail trend this season. I purchased this sweater because it follows this trend but also because it’s in a neutral color (hello, neutrals are my fave) and affordable!

I know none of these tips are particularly ground-breaking but I hope it helps you all on your quest for the perfect fall wardrobe! If I left any amazing tips out, please let me know in the comments below! IF you want to read more of my fall fashion tips click here or here!

Hope you all have an amazing week.

    I love your tips! These are all things I’ve learned over time, but I don’t think it’s always obvious at the beginning of a style journey.

    It’s kinda ironic that I am reading this post. I just started reading a book called The Curated Closet. It’s helps you determine your style, if you don’t know what that is, and then it gives you tool sand exercises to help you purchase and a maintain a closet that is specific to that style by using pieces that will get you a lot of return on your investment. It has strategies for impulse purchasing and so much more!
