Think you need to hit the reject pile of hoodies you wore in high school, or the team sweatpants and Uggs because you don’t have anything new to wear? Think again.
Some of us can’t wait for the season change and the bulky, unflattering, extra layers, and the runny noses. But some are less welcoming to the idea. To transition easily into the season, here are some steps you can take.
Cuff it up
A trend that will be worn by both men and women this season is the cuffed pant. You can do this with casual pants and dress up the shoes or, alternatively, a dress pant and pair it with some loafers or flats. Ladies can keep their favourite pair of high heels around a little longer by pairing them with a cuffed jean. This is an easy way to transition a casual look to a formal one.
Something old, something new Style savvy Andrew Chipman runs Pullteeth, a blog chronicling his personal style and DIY projects. One of his signature styles is pairing vintage and designer items to create an edgy, old versus new look. Pictured here, Chipman’s vintage pants and shoes add personality to his plain, black but Alexander Wang tee matched with his Yves Saint Laurent tote. This look is both fun and universal: you can wear it casually, to school, or, on a night out – just swap the jacket and tee for a button up dress shirt.
By befriending items that you never thought would get along, you can revamp your entire style. Be creative when you put together an outfit in the morning, and try not to be discouraged by the overcast.
