3 Ways To Wear 3 Fall Wardrobe Staples

After purging my closet this summer, I’ve decided that I will not be buying any new pieces unless I have at least three different ways of wearing them. It seems like every season I end up buying a handful of trendier pieces, only to find myself scratching my head a year later when it’s time to wear them again. If you’re trying to cut down on the clutter and invest in some classic pieces, here are my three wardrobe must-haves for the fall and three different ways to style them.

1. Ankle boots

Ankle boots are incredibly versatile for fall, and you can wear them year after year. Go with a black boot with a low heel, so that they can easily be dressed up or down and paired with denim, a dress or even some separates.

1. Cullen Sweater, Need Supply | 2. Shimmered Tassel Clutch, Anthropologie | 3. Astrological Cuff, Catbird | 4. Tiny Dancer Moon & Star Studs, Catbird | 5. Charley Boot, Madewell

Ankle boots are amazingly versatile for every look: jeans, separates and dresses. This delicate look would be perfect for a chillier fall date night—add a few delicate, celestial-inspired accessories and a metallic clutch to break up the neutral colors.

Shark Week has rolled around and sharks have been taking over! These creatures have gained a lot of popularity with the release of Sharknado 1 and 2, and while Shark Week has always been popular, there has been a recent surge in shark-related apparel and accessories.

Here are some Shark-inspired outfits for the weekend, from a casual summer look to a fun date night!

5 Ways To Wear Over-The-Knee Socks

Clueless has always been one of my favorite ’90s chick flicks, but in all honesty I never stopped to truly think about why. Now I totally get it—aside from the relatable high school drama, the rich Valley girl envy and the hilarious dead-on stereotypes, I find myself obsessing over the trends that were featured in this cute girl power film.

The one thing I absolutely need to incorporate into my style are over-the-knee socks, inspired by the outfit worn in Cher’s retail therapy scene. The hipsters, skaters, preps and trendsetters alike that I’ve seen sporting this trend up and down the streets of NYC  will definitely back me up on this, and I cannot wait to give it a try! Read on to see how I’ve styled over-the-knee socks for five different looks!

B O H O 

Pairing tall boots with over-the- knee socks makes for a sexy yet sophisticated look, only revealing the upper thigh. Although the over-the-knee socks can be worn with a mini skirt or dress, I prefer to pair them with shorts. For a Boho look, just sport a flower blouse or crotchet sweater!
