In this third look, I've dropped the bright yellow cami and traded it for a golden tank style blouse and added a solid black sweater. The earrings this time are amber, to bring in more of the autumn tone. I kept the bright yellow in the shoes, but as pumps, this time. Closed in shoes for the fall. And the big change is in the handbag with the bucket bag of animal print. Are you feeling warmer, yet?
We start to get into cooler weather looks here. The long-sleeved blouse in black with the studded collar and the bulky-knit, mustard colored sweater in an oversized style are definitely not summer wear. This switch, changes the color focus of the outfit, but our skirt is standing up to the competition just fine! Bronze and gold earrings complement the edginess of the studded collar of the blouse, while the Lucite bangle simply adds color. Ankle boots in shiny patent leather look great with this midi skirt. And the bucket bag brings in a last touch of the golden color as well as being one of this falls' forecasted trends.
Here we have the fall styles that I particularly enjoy. The midi skirt gets a dark bronze, scooped neck top this time. And it's all cozied up in a great sweater that falls half-way down the skirt in a soft black with capped sleeves. The earrings are gold with black chains around them. Then I added my favorite accessory, a soft scarf to drape around the neck and keep out the chills - and to look great! The little black clutch is all about the big black clasp on top. But the three toned shoes make another statement and will draw attention to a great pair of ankles with that strap! This is the first time that the skirt may be totally upstaged by another article in the outfit. Those shoes are tough competition. Just a thought, I think I'd do pale black stockings with this, and be sure my pedicure was freshly done in a great coppery color. Definitely a great way to stay warm when the thermometer drops.
And for our final act before we must put it away for another day. I paired the striped skirt with a sheer, B&W checked shirt, topped it with a loose knit, dark amber, oversized sweater, and tied a lovely Versace collection scarf around the neck. The scarf can be removed if you aren't a fan of multiple prints or patterns, especially near your face, since there is a really nice chunky gold necklace under the scarf that will look wonderful with those B&W and gold earrings. Black knee-high boots and a bright gold bag add more sass to the outfit. And for added warmth, now that the season is really here, a sweater coat in dark mustard with black trim.
So, now it's your turn! Choose an item in your closet and see if you can make it transition as the season changes. Try some combinations you hadn't thought of before and see what new outfits you find in your closet!
