Chicago, are you ready to retire the sandals and seasonal summer swag? A new season means a new you, and so it’s officially time to lose the beach look and get the fabulous fall styles under wrap.
To help you warm up to this autumn’s awesome attire, StyleBistro.com has shared with CHI-lebrity ten original ways to create a winning wardrobe and add some flair to your fall fashion approach.
The Embellished Bootie: Booties have been a fall staple for years, but this season, why not give your footwear an upgrade with some bling-y, adorably embellished stunners like these.
The oxblood jacket: Give your go-to black leather jacket an upgrade by sporting one in saturated oxblood. So chic!
The colored tights: The simplest way to add a pop of color to a neutral ensemble with minimal effort? By slipping into a fun pair of colored tights instead of boring black. So fun and easy!
The LWD: The LBD? Try an LWD ("Little White Dress") this season to amp up your style. And yes, you can wear white after Labor Day. In fact, there's nothing chicer.
The baseball hat: Having a bad hair day? Then throw on a baseball hat! A super cool (and unexpected) way to accessorize this season.
The army jacket: This fall, ditch your normal trench or nylon jacket, and opt for something army-inspired instead. You'll instantly be the raddest chick in town.
The knee-high boots: We saw designers ditch the below-the-knee boots, and go for knee-highs this fall. So this season, pair a style like these from Macy's with a full skirt for work, or skinny jeans for the weekend.
The oversize knit: Sure a form-fitting sweater is cute, but have you ever tried something a tad looser? We're loving the oversize knit look this fall, and you should hop on board the trend, too! Layer with skinny pants for the office, or leggings for Saturday brunch!
The crossbody bag: This season, take a break from your massive tote, and try something a little smaller like a crossbody. While tinier, you can still fit all of your daily essentials: phone, lipstick, day planner...
The menswear-inspired oxfords: Love your ballet flats? Why not try a different pair of flats this season—i.e., the menswear-inspired oxford. Seriously—borrowing from the boys never looked so good. And to keep the feet looking femme, try a pair with a pop of leopard like these.
