How To Wear Burgundy

Fall In Burgundy
Add a punch of burgundy to your outfit this fall. You can add it through your accessories for a subtle look such as a scarf or shoes or bag. For a bolder look, make your outfit stand out with a burgundy jacket, pants or shirt. Here we have added burgundy to the outfit with the jacket and the blanket scarf. The main outfit is kept casual with a gray sweater and skinny jeans. Fall will not be complete without suede! Suede booties and a tassel handbag in a neutral tan color complement the outfit. Gold goes perfectly with this warm fall color. You can accent your outfit with simple gold necklace like our birds necklace to add the finishing touches. Hope everyone is having a great Friday. Have a happy weekend!

How To Layer for Work In Summer

Office wear during summer can be tricky sometimes. It is nice and hot outside and you decide to wear that great summer outfit to work. Then you enter the chilly office….brrr. I hate feeling cold inside when the sun is shining so bright!

Layering in summer. Yes that can be the perfect solution for both men and women to stay comfortable and fashionable at work during summer.

With casual office wear becoming more and more acceptable at work, it has become easier to be both comfy and chic.

I have come up with some layering ideas to easily switch between the summer sun and the chilly office.

Layering Options For Women

Summer Office Wear

I have paired a peach blouse that can be tucked into the gray culottes with four layering options for summer office wear. These options will transition you easily from the outdoor heat to the arctic tundra inside!

Option 1: Gray Jacket

Layer your blouse with a jacket for a more formal look that is still comfortably chic. The gray jacket is not too formal but gives you that professional look while keeping you warm and comfy.

Option 2: Black Kimono

A kimono is perfect for a loose unstructured look. This black kimono will add depth and warmth to our outfit while keeping it work appropriate.

Option 3: Black Vest

If you are cold but not too cold a vest could be the perfect layering option. This belted black vest takes chic to the next level while giving you a great layering option.

Option 4: Summer Scarf

This navy floral infinity scarf can be paired with any of the above options or on its own for a chic, layered look. A scarf will give you that extra layer of cozy for those cold air conditioned offices when you are just slightly feeling the chill.

Add a few more accessories including the flats (Tory Burch), necklace (Fashionelle Studio) & and tote (Topshop) and you are all set for work!

Layering Options For Men

Summer Office Wear

Here I have paired a simple navy blue t-shirt from Tommy John and black pants from Topman with some great layering options to make it work appropriate for those chilly offices during summer! If your office prefers a more formal look, just replace the t-shirt with a collared shirt.

Option 1 : Vest

If you are feeling a little cold but don’t want to wear full sleeves, a vest can be a great choice. It will give you the right amount of coziness and at the same time creating a chic, fashionable look.

Option 2: Sports Jacket/Blazer

Go for a more formal look by layering with a sports jacket or blazer. Easy peasy to take the blazer off in the summer heat.

Option 3: Collar Knit Jacket

More informal that a sports jacket, this knit jacket has a casual, unstructured look. The collar keeps it a little more conservative. Again easy enough to take if off when stepping outside.

Option 4: Cardigan

Last but not the least, a button down cardigan can help make your outfit look professional and at the same time help you deal with the office AC.

 

Share your tips with us! Besides layering how do you stay warm at work with the AC blasting?

Fashion Friday Humour

I have been missing in action from my blog for a while now. Things were a little hectic with my etsy shop (which is a good thing!) plus all the family get togethers during the holiday season kept me pretty busy. So the blog has been off my radar. What’s better than to start the year with some fashion humour! Happy Friday everyone.

Lattes, boots, pumpkins and scarves! Fall season is upon us and so the layering can begin! A scarf is a perfect accessory to layer your outfit in fall.

How to wear coral in fall

Coral, a popular summer color can be worn in fall easily by combining it with a neutral color. The summer coral blouse is layered with a grey jacket. Add a pair of boots to make it fall appropriate. These gray suede ankle boots work perfectly with the outfit. The same gray color is picked up in the textured cross body handbag. A printed coral infinity scarf that complements the blouse makes it perfect for fall weather. Add some cute jewelry like this bird necklace to complete the look. Add jeans for an informal look or replace them with a pair of pants for a great work outfit.
Happy Friday and happy Halloween everyone!

How To Wear Scarves In Fall

Bonfires, lattes, boots, crisp air, sweaters, falling leaves, pumpkin spiced everything and of course scarves! All things synonymous with fall. From infinity scarves to blanket scarves and everything in between, we have included a variety of ways you can wear scarves this fall.

Combine two pastel colors together.

Pastels are usually spring and summer colors but why not try them in fall? Here a rose colored knit infinity scarf is paired with an aqua sweater. The pastels work beautifully together specially when paired with brown sunglasses and crossbody fringe bag. The knee high boots tie the whole look together by picking up the black from the jeans and brown from the bag and sunglasses.

How To Transition Your Summer Outfit Into Fall

Jeans and sleeveless tops are summer staples that most people have in their summer wardrobe. You can easily transition this summer outfit well into fall season by adding a few transitional pieces. I have added a fringe kimono, tassel loafers and a plaid infinity scarf in a warm burgundy color to cozy up the outfit. I have also included a messenger bag in a beautiful shade of brown and a celtic knot necklace to complete the whole look.
