2018 Fall Style Inspiration

As a lifelong Georgian, fall is easily my favorite season. I really cherish those three weeks of crisp and cool-but-not-too-cool weather.

The seasonal transition might be fairly quick, but my wardrobe transitions at a more relaxed pace. I’ve just recently started packing away my summer threads to make room for my sweater collection.

While I’m in the midst of a month-long style challenge to wear a dress every day in October I’ve been thinking a lot about what looks and pieces (aside from the simple indulgence of wearing pants) I want to try this season.

Here’s where I’ve landed so far:

Lilac + Marigold

… That’s pastel purple and mustard yellow for those not trying to break into the competitive world of naming nail polish colors at Essie.

It’s possible I’m just feeling a Daphne Blake fantasy right now, but I’ll kick off here in case I’m not stuck in a Halloween-induced Scooby-Doo fever dream. I really think mustard is having its moment in 2018, and I couldn’t be happier.

In the fall, we tend to see color combinations that match the changing leaves around us – olive greens, muted browns, and deep reds. With all due respect to fall foliage, I love the idea of injecting a bit more color, even in the form of a pastel, into the season.

B+W Gingham

Sure, I’ve seen enough gingham swimsuits and crop tops and even picnic tablecloths to know that this pattern is a summer favorite. But when I see the popular checked pattern in black and white (aka goth gingham — just kidding, no one would call it that) I think autumn.

Plus, if Taylor Swift has taught me anything, it’s that you can never underestimate the power of a classic red lip. Paired with a gingham dress, you’re practically unstoppable.

Print Mixing

I’m kind of obsessed with Audrey, a fearless fashionista and pattern mixing genius. Whenever I play around with prints in my own wardrobe, it’s often inspired by a post of hers! While I do mix patterns throughout the year, I think the particular color and print combinations Audrey comes up with are perfect for fall.
