Easy breezy: Relaxed fall looks
The end of summer is usually punctuated with back-to-school sales, back-to-work sighs, and back-to-the grind routines. But lately, routines have gone out the window, and the most important “back to” on the horizon is getting back to being you. Sure we’ve embraced the daily donning of sweats and non-donning of bras – but, the time has come to put on your grown-up pants (or any pants, for that matter) and dive back into the world. If you’re having trouble visualizing your wardrobe beyond the pajama drawer, here are a few transitional tips.
SAY NIGHTY NIGHT. Keeping that light, comfy feel of your nightgown is easy with a simple sundress. We’re lucky that here, September is still fairly temperate, so all those summer dresses you bought before things turned topsy-turvy are all wearable well into the fall season.
DENIM REVIVAL. Okay, so it’s not exactly your fav sweats, but jeans are a close second. Start slow with this season’s flared fits. If you’re feeling adventurous, check out the return of the wide-leg, high-waisted jean in a ’90s-inspired light wash.
SHOE IN. Though nothing can beat bare feet, fall’s footwear trends include some pretty nifty options. Low-heeled loafers are making their mark with fresh takes in slingback styles. Mary Janes and pointed toe flats are also hot to trot. Still not convinced? You’ve got a secret weapon: From silky to fuzzy, slippers have been a key inspiration for this season’s shoe designers. (Just keep the bunny ones at home.)
