I am so excited about the upcoming fall season! It is currently 109 degrees outside, and I am melting! So, I am counting down the days to fall weather so I can not melt, and also have a chance to wear all these cozy fall outfits! Love!
This fall, there are several trends to look at and decide what works with your own personal style. As we move out of the pandemic, and back into regular life patterns, street style is getting a little more “put together” shall we say. Gone are the days, for now, of rolling out into public in loungewear, sweats, and flip flops. This fall, we are making casual a little but more glam. Love that!
If you like structured looks, you are in luck! Blazers over jeans, which is a classic outfit I rocked throughout the ’90’s, is huge this fall. It is an easy trend to rock. All you need is a pair of jeans, one fabulous blazer, and a body conscious tee or tank. That’s it! You can wear loafers, boots, or sleek street sneakers on your feet. For your handbag, opt for a top handle bag, pouch, hobo bag, or moon shaped bag. Jewelry is classic this season, so go with small to medium earrings; and if you want to add a necklace, go with delicate layered necklaces, or an understated beaded necklace. You can add bracelets or a ring too. Love that!
Another hot trend this fall is wide leg pants. This can be in the form of jeans, trousers, or pleated trousers. Since I am short, pleated trousers overtake my body and make me look like a walking pool of fabric. Wide leg jeans, which are not too wide, work better on my frame. If you are tall, lucky you! You can rock those wide leg trousers! Pair your wide leg jeans or trousers with an unbuttoned men’s shirt and tank top, or a blazer, or a crop top, or a cropped sweater. For footwear, this requires fabulous street sneakers. You can rock a hobo bag, moon shaped bag, or shoulder bag with this look. Love!
Blazer with jeans and Barbiecore

So we already talked about wearing a blazer over jeans, but there is another trend lurking on the streets which I have touched upon in previous blog posts. This trend involves bright pink and was inspired by an upcoming Barbie movie. As you know, it’s called “Barbiecore.” This is a really easy trend to rock if you loved your Barbie dolls as a child, as did I, and you like pink! I have decided to rock this trend in the form of a bright pink blazer which I plan to wear with jeans. It will also make a fun business casual look with black skinny trousers, since I don’t do wide leg trousers. If a pink blazer isn’t your thing, you can rock Barbiecore with a pink dress, top, full power suit, or with something more subtle such as a scarf or pink jewelry. I’m going with the blazer, so you can spot me a mile away. Ha!
Casual sweater outfit ideas

As I wait patiently for cooler weather, fall is also about staying cozy on cooler days. I love this sweater jacket which can be worn over the tee’s pictured above and paired with jeans. I also love this cozy turtleneck sweater over jeans. Cozy sweaters are hot this year, so if you see one snap it up! The weather will cool down soon. . .we hope.
