5 Fall Outfits You Can Start Wearing Now

September fall weather is finally here. Though, Chicago right now does not want to let go of 80 degree weather, fall IS coming. Fall fashion is one of my favorite time for outfit looks. Something about those knee high boots, scars, chunky sweaters, and layering pieces that make fall THAT much better. I’m here to show you guys exactly what you can start wearing today, tomorrow, or maybe next week after you order some things from here 😉

White Tee Statement White Top

Nothing better than a statement white top for the fall. This Plunge White Ruffle Top is so pretty and perfect for the season. If you have any plunge top, time to take it out and wear it. Even if you don’t, white seems to be this years “it” color! It’s transitional and keeps your wardrobe lively instead of all the dark colors fall is associated with. Style it with a dainty necklace like this Star Lariat Necklace and some denim jeans.

Pink + Duster + Ruffles

Dusters are making heavy waves. This trend is probably one of my favorites because they are so different and so fun to style. This Pink Ruffle Duster has open ruffled slits on the side (which is my FAVORITE) part. Plus its pink, so it already wins. We styled it with some distressed dark denim and our favorite nude heels. If you don’t have a duster, you need one for the fall. Style this with leather pants and some boots for a dinner date look!

Graphic Tee + Duster Cardigan + Jean Skirt

A simple cardigan like this Gray Duster Cardigan,  can be styled in so many ways. Here we styled it with our Retail Therapist graphic tee and Levi Jean Skirt. A cardigan is a fall staple. Plus, its gray so there are so many colors that can look great with this cardigan. Try styling your cardigan with a LBD and some cute heels! I’ve even seen girls wear cardigans with leather jackets. The options are endless.

It’s All About the Details

Our Pretty Pink Dress has the prettiest back details! Something about an open strappy dress makes it look so much better. If you have a dress in your closet that’s a statement piece, wear it this fall! Throw on your favorite heels and a leather jacket like our Pink Cropped Leather Jacket. Tip: Get on the dress & jean trend if you are feeling up for it. Have no idea what I’m talking about? Read about it here. You’ll definitely look chic!

Camo Feels

What’s fall without a good camouflage piece? This Star Sequin Camo Jacket is one of my favorites at T&J Designs. The sequins make this jacket so much more fashionable and trendy. We styled it with a pop of color and black jeans. Try styling this with a black leather mini skirt!

You can find all of these and so much more on T&J Designs!

Happy (fall) styling,

#2 Who Doesn’t Love Champagne?

I promise you the moment you make plans with your girls and say “I’m bringing champagne” no one will say no! Something about that crisp bubbly sweet sip to change any mood! Oh, and a side of dessert 🙂

#3 Choose a favorite spot to try.

Having it at home is always a good idea because you’re comfortable and it’s always easy, but find a winery in your hometown or a new restaurant opening and plan a date! The girls will appreciate a girls night out somewhere fun and new. It’s all about a fun atmosphere, yummy champagne and good friends to make the time fly by.

#4 You need a place to wear your killer outfit!

What a better place to wear that cute dress you bought then to a GNO! A good outfit honestly brings up your confidence and I think any girl can vouch for that. A good outfit and some champagne = pure happiness.
