Looking around at today’s styles can feel overwhelming and scary to a lot of us. 80’s & 90’s styles that should never have come back- are back. So how do ladies style in a hip and fresh way without looking ridiculous in today’s hot trends? Don’t you fret, ladies. We’ve got 8 styled looks for you to try this Fall!
Get yourself a solid button down shirt (short or long sleeve). White is a great and universal neutral you can use for many of these outfit choices. Add a Tank Halftee or a Sleeveless Turtleneck Halftee for an added Fall look.
Next find a good pair of jeans. They don’t need to squeeze you, but a good pair that fits your slim and comfortably is best. Slim fit can seem scary, particularly if you don’t categorize yourself as slim- but it’s the same idea that we promote here at Halftee. Less BULK. Create slimmer lines by adding slimmer styles… If you find the RIGHT pair of jeans they can hug your body without making you pop like a can of biscuits. If the jeans fit your length well with no excess length, leave them. But if they are a little long- add a small cuff or cut them and leave a raw edge. The raw edge look is really in right now.
Add a LONG Cardigan. This should go past your bottom but not past your knees. A Solid color is great! You can go classic white and black or you could add some color! If you chose a long sleeve button down, unbutton the top two buttons and flare your collar a little (this is where adding a Tank Halftee may be necessary to keep the girls covered.) Pull the sleeves of your cardigan up your forearm a titch, and roll the cuff of your button down up over the cardigan arm.
Final Touches: Add an animal print flat. Cat prints, or snake print flats are great touches of fun to break up the solid colors. Make sure they coordinate well with your POP of color if you chose a non neutral cardigan. If print shoes scare you- you can add a solid shoe or bootie as well. Finally, add a cute and simple chunky necklace and you are set!
Notes: Keep your Halftee Neutral in color to keep a seamless look. Let your shoes be the standout piece. If the colors of your chunky necklace coordinate with your shoe choice- it’s all that more cohesive.
Add a Long Sleeve Halftee under a solid blouse and short sleeve cardigan for a Fall Look like this one below.
Next add a solid pant (not the same color as your top). In the first image she is coordinating Navy & White with a pop of Yellow. But you can choose any cute combo. We’ve included 72 harmonious color combos to help you mix and match your wardrobe.
Find a cute scarf that matches your two main colors (shirt and pants). Add your pop of color with your shoes and a coordinating bag. Some simple jewelry will add the final touches.
Business Class it up with a blazer over your top. Always make sure the cuffs of your shirt are longer than the sleeves of your jacket or cardigan. It creates a tailored and fashion forward look.
HARMONIOUS COLOR COMBOS
Start with a floral blouse and put a denim button down over the top, leave it unbuttoned. Over the top of that- add a long cardigan. Pull the denim cuffs down like in outfit #1. If that seems like one too many layers- you do the following style instead. Start with the UNICORN Halftee- Floral Mesh (if you got it- you are lucky!), covered with a slightly unbuttoned denim button down. Place the cardigan over it, and pull the Mesh Halftee all the way to your wrists, and scrunch up the cardigan and roll the denim sleeve over it.
Pair either of these top combos with a slim fit pair of jeans, and cute flats. You could even do cute monochromatic sneakers for more casual comfort.
On top, start with a long tunic top. A good Fall color will give a more Autumn vibe. Add a Tank Halftee to ensure coverage when you lean over or forward throughout your day. For your base, pick some dark leggings. If they have some texture to them, it’s all the better. This follows the same idea that we are slimming our lower half by wearing slim but well-fitted leggings. The texture creates a more put together look.
Depending on the style you are going for- you can add boots, sneakers or heels to create different looks with this outfit. You can also add a jacket or other over accents to create different vibes. Here are some examples of tunics styled with leggings…
If you are more into the Athleisure Style these next few are for you!
Get a large striped sweater in any of your favorite colors. Fall colors would be oranges, browns, blacks, creams, navy- etc. Pick a slim fitted solid pant. And top it off with a cute pointed flat. You can lightly accessorize with dainty jewelry and a hat. Cute fedoras or berets are best!
