It’s my favorite time of the year again — ’tis the season where 5x more options open up for accessorizing and layering. It’s funny; every Fall I feel like nothing in my closet work anymore & I feel compelled to start my Fall wardrobe anew. Does anyone else feel that way? All summer I’ve been living in my tee shirt + J.Crew City Mini skirt uniform (hey, it’s easy = perfect for the lazy girl yet professional-looking-ish), but rather than just throw on some tights and boots under it for Fall, I’m trying to challenge myself to think outside the J.Crew box. Here are a few things I found from Anthropologie that I’m loving:
Black and white is one of my favorite color combinations. It’s so striking and elegant, but serves as a great canvas for any pops of color — for example, these super school-girl preppy-chic red Mary Jane Booties. And how cute with this adorable, bright-red Montmorency Cherried Beret or Color Report Cowl in red? Perfect for Fall/Winter. Best of all, this design is super slimming/flattering — the white panel is designed to draw the eye vertically down, then the skirt perfectly flares out from your hips, further accentuating the contrast with your waist, thereby giving you a little help in making it look a bit smaller (and we could all use some of that kind of magic!). It’s so cute I’d even layer on a sweater on top and wear this just for the skirt! With 51 almost 5-star reviews, this dress is pricy but almost completely sold out, so snag your size now from Anthropologie.
With a similar fabric and style as the Strata dress, this skirt is meant to poof out from your lower body and, according to the site, create an instant “itty-bitty” waist. Icing on the cake? The material is super comfy, elastic and stretchy, and feels significant enough to be a Fall staple. 33 almost five-star reviews can’t be wrong! A bit pricy at $128 a pop, but I think this is worth the investment. I’ll be picking it up in all 3 colors! Get them from Anthropologie here for $128.
