Even though it still feels like summer – especially here in Los Angeles, in the fashion world August means Fall. I have always a huge fan of Fall Fashion. Mostly because fall fashion tends to be more luxurious with lots of rich colors & layers upon layers. Until the weather cools down, my fashion choices will still show a summer feel but can incorporate some Fall elements. One of my favorite places to shop is Banana Republic. Their choice of clothing has something for everyone & right now their collection is perfect for that in between of summer & fall. So today, I am going to share how to get ready for fall with Banana Republic…

It’s hard to go shopping for fall clothing when it’s over a hundred degrees outside. The last thing you are thinking about is heavy-duty clothing. This is why I love to shop for dresses. I’ve said it time and time again but you can never go wrong with a dress. And Banana Republic always comes to the recuse when trying to find the perfect dress. First and foremost, I love that BR dresses go up to a size XL or 14/16. So they even have something for the plus sized gals out there. Second, I love that they have fun & modern styles yet they are still classic & timeless. So you get more bang for your buck and can wear a dress year round.
Take this red printed tie-neck dress for example. A tie-neck dress is considered a classic & timeless silhouette – very lady like. But the fun pop of color & floral print give this classic dress style that extra umph. So you can wear it year round from Fall/Winter to Spring/Summer year over year and always look chic. Oh and let’s not forget the fit. Anything with an elastic waist & is cute – I’m sold. The gathered elastic waist not only creates a hour-glass silhouette but it’s extemely comfortable and easy to wear.
Thais why I chose this particular dress and wanted to share how to style it for Fall. Leather jackets are a staple in any fashionistas wardrobe. To add a bit of a street chic edge, I layered this faux leather jacket over the lady like dress. In Fall, you can actually chose to wear the jacket but since it’s still warm out, you can lightly drape the jacket over your shoulders instead. You can also wear the dress alone without a jacket & add a belt instead.
To complete the look, I love an unexpected pop of color. And when I saw this Green Suede Bag at BR, I had to have it. Jewel tones will be all the rage for fall & this gives this look a more luxurious feel with this super chic bag. You can slowly start to update your fall wardrobe with a few key pieces and accessories are a great way to start. Again this bag is another item that even though its part of the fall collection, I will most definitely be carrying it next spring & summer. I like investing in key pieces that can easily transition from season to season & Banana Republic is my go to place for just that.
I hope you enjoyed this post & I hope you have a great day. With lots of love…
