It’s time for a little fall fashion! I’ve prolonged it as much as I possibly could as I’m busy working away on house projects. But I’ll save those for next week.
I could give you the lowdown on the runway trends. But I get bored with those easily. They are predictable (surprise, surprise, some shade of purple and animal prints are trends) and come around every fall. And the rest typically don’t trickle down to us regular folk. Why bother.
So get ready for my cooler weather looks! You’ll find these trends surprising. Starting with today’s. Fall trend #1…ripped jeans. Sure, a little distressing has been around here and there but these are full on ripped. Like Alan Jackson 1992. I have even seen some of the jeans advertised as “mom jeans.” They are high-waisted, light or acid washed and holey. There is just part of me that can’t go there. But a smallishness of distressing… okay. Keep in mind if you are wearing said mom jeans on purpose, you better be under 30. The rest of us are still trying to avoid looking like a candidate on What Not to Wear.
How to wear ripped jeans:
1) Keep in mind that pairing with flannel and combat boots are going to be reminiscent of the 90s. I prefer to keep the look more modern with an oversized cardigan and trusty white Converse.
2) Don’t pair this with too much skin on top. Unless you are a teenage rock star.
3) Structured looks are by far my favorite. So if you’re dressing up in a blazer and breaking out the heels anyway, these jeans will keep you from looking stuffy.
In your mom jeans. 😉
(FYI- red is a big color for fall. It hasn’t been around lately and I’m finding it refreshing.)
