Fall is here, you guys. It is my favorite time of the year. Why? Well, fall time is absolutely beautiful! The season change brings things like changes in the color of leaves and trees. The weather is also classic, not too hot or too cold. With Fall comes fun things like Halloween and Thanksgiving (one of my favorite holidays). Have you ever gone pumpkin picking? It’s the best thing EVER to kick-start the festive mood! Another reason to adore autumn is that it gives chance to embrace the cutest outfits! Fall fashions are the BEST of the entire year!
With the fall season practically being here, a lot of us want to get started on our slayage this year. The kind of clothes you wear makes a statement. It’s a way of expressing yourself, and I know you fashionistas out there are ready to make your statement proudly.
However, if I’m being honest, if you’re someone like me then you may have a little pause when it comes to the fashion world. We may not be fashion divas, but we want to be knockouts still this season, right? So here’s how to get the best Fall look and dominate Fall fashion this year?
How to Get The Best Fall Look This Year?
1. Before you even get shopping, get off of Instagram and stop comparing.
The best look for you is about YOU. It’s about your personality. Are you energetic and spunky? Or are you conservative and laid back? Whatever describes you is what you are going to be trying to portray.
In other words, you’re not trying to be a carbon copy of that Instagram model you saw that has killer legs. They wear what they wear and while inspiration is great, trying to copy usually keeps you from finding your unique style.
I’m not saying these people on Instagram are not stylish and I do find myself thinking how I wish I could have this or that outfit. However, the truth is it looks good on THEM, but that doesn’t mean that style is for you or me. I gradually found out from personal experience that, not all of those fashions you envy are ideal for you.
2. Analyze the clothes that you already have.
Now that we’ve got that out of your way go to your closet before you go to the mall. Go through all of your Fall outfits from last year. Remember the things that you never wore or only wore once. Remember the things that you put on that you hated, but wore anyway because it was there.
Take note of these things and if it fits into these categories, get rid of it. If you didn’t love it last year, you wouldn’t like it this year.
Now, go through and pick out the outfits that you remember living on your body. What did you put on and walk with an extra pep in your step? What got you compliments every time you wore it? Not only should you keep it, but use the yes’s as an inspiration! These small gestures will help you find what your style is.
3. Utilize Pinterest.
After going through your clothes, hit Pinterest. Look up outfits for the Fall (using the clothes you saved as inspiration) and find more ideas. Screenshot or save these items that you feel suits you the best! Then, you can hit the mall!
4. Make sure what you wear fits!
I mean this in every way possible. Not only should it fit your personality and your lifestyle, but also your body. It shouldn’t be uncomfortable to wear. If you have to walk funny to wear it, then it’s not for you. We are all different shapes and sizes, and some outfits accentuate all of our bomb features.
Be sure that what you’re picking out is comfortable and shows off your favorite feature on your body. With that being said, “Try Your Clothes On!”.
I’m not crazy about dressing rooms so I can understand if you roll your eyes, but you have no idea what something actually looks like until you put it on. You aren’t trapped in a specific type of clothing, no.
Explore. You’d be surprised what not only fits your style and personality, but also fits your body so that you’re walking smoothly, pain-free, and with confidence!
5. Get yourself a good pair of boots.
Here is my advice to anyone looking for a dashing look. I don’t care about your size, style, or anything. You cannot go wrong with a cute pair of Fall boots. Get yourself a pair that can go with most of your outfits.
I personally always get myself a pair of black boots because they always go with the majority of my Fall outfits. Boots look good on just about anyone so you literally just can’t go wrong.
6. Scarves are a must.
Another must-have for this Fall for anyone, no matter what shape, size, height, or style you have, is scarves. I’ve never seen a scarf look bad on a person. The best thing about this accessory is that there are so many different styles and materials that you could find one for almost any type of style that you end up with!
There’s wooly scarves and light pastel colored scarves. So, just like with boots, at least get one that fits a few different outfits that helps add that little extra pop!
The truth is, there is no standard technique for anyone and so finding the best style for you can only really be done by you. Use these steps, however, and you can see yourself falling in love with your clothes this Fall. I’m no fashion expert and finding Fall fashions for myself was not an easy task. However, I did manage to explore what kind of styles work best for me, and once you figure it out once, shopping becomes easier from now on!
How are you finding your Fall look this year? Where do you go shopping? I know I started going to the Mall earlier, but I am also a big fan of a particular little shop called Rainbow. Where’s your favorite store?
