For me, fall fashion in New York City is all about looking professional and polished. Thankfully, it has been a relatively mild fall season, so I have really been able to rock my favorite pieces, both old and new.
On this particular Monday I chose a pair of flare pants from Reformation, which has quickly become one of my go-to places to shop–everything fits so amazing and you really cannot beat the quality. (I also think I have a mild addiction to statement pants.)
I have been having so much fun styling these bad boys throughout the summer and now into fall. And while I love pairing them with more casual pieces like vintage band tees and lacy lingerie, I decided to dress them up for work.
Wearing heels makes me feel really empowered, so I started styling this outfit from the bottom up with my must-have black booties. Then, I added a solid pullover sweater so the striped pants could remain the focus of the look.
Camel is definitely my favorite color to wear during the colder months. (Actually, who am I kidding? It’s my favorite color to wear year-round.)
I didn’t want it to be too casual, which is why I layered the pink corduroy blazer. This piece of outerwear brings a little more structure to the look, and it also helped keep me warm, of course.
Today, I added it to this look for a little dimension; mixing different colors and textures is the best way to transform a dull outfit into something stylish. And sporting this scarf, a crucial layering piece, does just that. It will definitely be a major part of my wardrobe for the rest of this season and well into the next.
I polished off the look with clean, minimal jewelry and a sheer brown lip by Glossier (one of my go-to daytime lipsticks).
All in all, I am so happy with how this look turned out. These pants really could not be more flattering; the high-rise fit and extreme flare work together to elongate the legs. The sweater and scarf combo keep me warm while finishing touches like shoes, jewelry and makeup keep things fashionable.
