Fall Fashion Inspiration

When AUrate challenged me to create the perfect fall outfit, the first question they asked me was how I create the perfect fall outfit.

The first word that came to mind was comfort. Think about it: all those fall activities like pumpkin picking and walking through the orchard are fun but if you’re dressed uncomfortably, it won’t be.

I’m all about being comfortable in my clothes. If I know I’m going to be tugging at falling straps or shifting fabric, I won’t wear that article of clothing.

Fall is the perfect time to break out the big, comfy sweaters along with a good ole pair of denim jeans. And who could get forget the jewelry?

As I say, jewelry is the cherry on top of outfits. It’s that one little thing that makes a huge difference.

When it comes to pairing jewelry with fall attire, there’s one rule: keep it simple!

Oversized sweaters are my favorite look but if you pair that with chunky jewels, it looks unbalanced. Think like a minimalist and grab some simple studs.

Necklaces are great but since most sweaters are made from knits, necklaces can easily become tangled in the fibers. Then, you go to rip the jewelry out of the fabric, causing it to fray. Not a good look.

That’s why I love these earrings from AUrate. All you need is a sweater, jeans, sneakers, and a messy top knot to go with them.

Fall is the best time to break out the classics. Whether that’s a sweater or jewelry, now’s the time to showcase it.
