Well Dressed: Transitional Trend

It’s that time of year again – time to begin transitioning your wardrobe from one season to the next. The trend of graphic, modern prints has been around for a few seasons now and in varying forms – skirts, sweatshirts, bomber jackets – you name it. Especially in fabrics that have a modern feel too – a sort of thicker structured fabric that keeps its streamlined (read: modern) shape. A prior piece I posted was this Markus Lupfer skirt from spring/summer. I’m not typically into modern pieces because I tend to gravitate to earthy colors in more loose and flowy fabrics, but I think it’s important to vary your look once in a while and step outside your comfort zone. Modern pieces lend themselves to a cleaner, understated and simple look, which I love. I hate tons of accessories and otherwise very embellished looks (Coco Chanel said “before leaving the house, a lady should look in the mirror and remove one accessory.”) I had fun styling this skirt, and wanted to post two looks – one that you can wear through the remainder of summer and one for early fall. Keep this option in mind while you are shopping for fall pieces because as we know, especially in Michigan, there are definitely a few weeks when you need to be able to wear things in a wide range of temperatures. If you go for a modern piece for fall, keep your shoe on the same vein. No wedges, overly dressy strappy sandals or anything otherwise too feminine – stick to something modern, funky/masculine and simple.

I just got this Neil Barrett skirt from Intermix, and, if you missed it in my last post – please join me as I host a fall styling event at my local Troy, MI store on August 27! The event isn’t a fashion show but rather an opportunity to come shop the latest fall trends and I will be there to help you choose what works best for you and incorporate them into your wardrobe. Great opportunity to update your closet!

Be well xo
