Hi ladies! With the transition from summer to fall, I'm excited to finally bundle up in cozy layers with so many modest options in style (at least here in Saint Louis it's chilly!). I'm no expert, but here are a few wardrobe tips and pieces I've found most useful when creating an outfit on-the-go in the Fall.
Tip #1: Basic tunics & sweaters in different shades are awesome for a quick outfit without having to layer or put much thought into color coordinating.
Tip #2: After wearing some sort of basic tunic, and if there's some time or it's extra chilly, I like to pair it with an additional layer, which can be a fur vest, anorak jacket, leather jacket, duster coat...etc. It also comes in handy for when the weather is unpredictable for a full day at school.
Tip #3: If you wear hijab, try matching it with the same color tones as your bottom half of your outfit (ex. I'd pair white sneakers with a light pink hijab). This way, the outfit flows together rather than appearing "choppy". If you're wanting to wear a color that isn't as bright as white, or dark as black, try gray or beige (I've been super stuck to both of mine from Austere Attire - use code: "Summerlove" for 10% off)!
Tip #4: Cold weather is perfect for wearing a one color palette outfit. I've found that mixing textures is key to pulling off the look, such as leather, suede, or fur. I will definitely be wearing looks inspired by these this winter! SO classy.
Tip #5: Stack up on the basic pieces. These will last season after season in your wardrobe and will most likely not go out of style for a long time!
Tip #6: Save on trending pieces. While they may be popular in the fashion scene, it will fade by the end of the season and probably not add versatility to your wardrobe for long, so I definitely recommend limiting the amounts of these pieces in your wardrobe. However, it is always nice to have a few and here are some awesome links to trending pieces that can be found for less!
I hope you found some of these tips useful! Let me know in the comments or on Instagram!
