Wanna know “how to dress for fall and feel good about it”?  Let me tell you all about it. Getting dress in the fall season is my favorite time of year. It’s the most opportune time for me to layer up on my clothing and be fashionable. It’s also that time when I get a kick out of wearing my boots, colored scarves, and coats. However, I do understand that some people are clueless about how to make this season work for them in style. Your struggles may include dressing for work and special occasions while trying to stay warm and in season within fashion reason. Whatever it is, don’t worry I’ve got you covered. Below I share some tips that will help you out.

First decide on what makes you happy!

What would you prefer to wear year round no matter what season we’re in. This doesn’t necessarily have to be a type of clothing, such as a specific blouse or pant, it can simply be your favorite color clothing. The secret to looking good, is actually feeling good and wearing what makes you comfortable. i.e You may be one of those people who love to wear the color white and prefer to wear it year round. That color is actually a summer color according to fashion forecast. There is also this big myth that you can’t wear white after labor day. Well I’m here to tell you, in actuality you can. You may not wanna wear pure white but you can wear something called winter white which is also called an off white. This color may suit you.

Invest in a pair of show stopping boots!

Shoes is what really gets the attention. A person may not remember your name but they will always remember those red boots you wore at an event when the two of you met. Besides, boots are a must have for Fall, so why not go all out. Decide on the type of boot that will make you comfortable. For example, an ankle boot may be the perfect fit for you because you have large calves and because of the fit, knee boots don’t quite feel as comfortable. Whatever it is, don’t go for what’s trending, go for what looks good on you and befitting on your feet. You will be happy in the end and exude that confidence in your appearance.

Dress to empower yourself!

By this I mean, dress for the job you want or the place you wanna go. Fall is really one of those seasons that allow you to go all out. You can throw on easy pieces that spruce up your look such as a simple scarf. I personally like the infinity scarf because you can wear it with a skirt and a blouse or jeans and a top and look like an important person. Wearing a scarf is also an effortless look. You just throw it on and go. I also like wearing trench coats. Having on a trench coat over your daytime or nighttime look can make an impression. It’s the simple layers or accessories in fall season that really stand out and make a difference.

Ladies whatever you choose to wear just remember to express yourself.  Your clothing speaks for you before you walk into the room. Feel free to leave me a comment below and let me know your thoughts.
