The Cushnie et Ochs looks are a lot more bondage style, though we cannot help but admire the way the cut-outs enhance the figure and the look of the legs peeking through extremely high slits on the thigh. If we are going to have plunging necklines as one of the biggest trends of the year, we certainly need to have the exact opposite for winter, since no type of top covers up more than a turtleneck. You've got on the brand new -- I'm a walking model. We have always loved to go retro and seeing the top designers of our days utilize the Western inspired trend makes us oh so happy. Suspenders are not a trend that was expected on the runways either, but their appearance is certainly not disappointing.
These knickers use a winter-weight microfiber, Super Roubaix to retain warmth but allows a comfortable range of motion. Start your layering with a base layer made of a polyester fabric. This will enhance moisture wicking and keep your body dry. Castelli Flanders Wind Base Layer uses a multi-denier polyester composition that keeps fabric stretchable and comfortable while wicking moisture. It keeps your arms warm but easily movable.
And if you overheat at any point a front, full-length camlock zipper can help cool you down. The Mavic Inferno Jacket will keep you warm during the icier fall times. It has strategically placed zipper vents to allow moisture to escape while keeping your body warm. It also has a removable hood and waterproof rain protection.
Again, those fall days can get cool. And especially if you are traveling at high speeds you want to be prepared. The Gore Bike Wear Universal SO Beanie blocks wind and also has a cinch cord so you can wear it as a hat or scarf keeping you warm and dry. If you prefer something a bit more girly, opt for a midi dress. Everything else will follow suit. The middle layer can be considered the "disposable" layer, as these pieces can be easily peeled off during the warmest stretches of the day without breaking the rest of the look.
But "disposable" doesn't mean "dispensable. Finish off your outfit with a bold and warm statement piece. Top casual outfits with an anorak jacket for a relaxed, cool weekend vibe or add some edge with a moto-inspired jacket for a fun night of drinks and dancing. Is wearing leggings instead of actual pants a fashion don't? That's a debate that's been raging since the beginning of time.
But as long as the proportions are balanced out and they're paired with an oversized tee, a billowing tunic top or even a flannel shirt tied around the waist, it's totally acceptable. It's no surprise that distressed denim jeans are perfect for summer. Their frayed patches and open holes feel as cool, comfortable, and casual as a day at the beach. But your favorite summer jeans can be part of your favorite fall clothes, too. Pairing them with fleece leggings ensures that you stay warm.
We also recommend making the leggings a neutral color black, gray, etc. One of the best parts about fall fashion is all the cozy accessories that can be used to upgrade a simple outfit. Up the ante by taking a basic outfit and enhancing it with a knitted snood or blanket scarves. Don't have time to style your hair? A wide-brim fedora, a solid wool baseball cap or even a slouchy beanie are all quick fixes for making it look like you put a lot more effort into your outfit than you actually did.
To make sure your curves don't disappear underneath multiple layers of clothing, enlist the help of a simple belt worn around the waist to cinch in the midsection. A thicker, more decorative belt with cut-out detailing or sparkly embellishments provides double-duty functionality by creating an hourglass silhouette and also by working as a bold statement piece. Backpacks aren't just for school anymore.
Sleek yet never bulky, today's stylish designs are perfect for carrying wallets, extra scarves, and pumpkin spice lattes—and they can be worn with just about every style, from a laid-back weekend look to a chic runway-meets-real-life ensemble.
Oversized totes achieve the same effect, so it really comes down to personal comfort. Do you prefer a bag over one shoulder or both? This look exudes a fashion-forward look without being over the top for daytime wear. When combined together, these staples create the perfect outfit for a coffee date, a casual meeting, or even a relaxed day at the office.
