Chilly night’s call for OVERSIZED Sweaters!

You know Fall is in full effect when Southern California starts to have chilly nights! I was quite surprised to wake up to rain falling this morning as well. Thus, I decided the perfect trend for today was oversized sweaters! There is nothing better than being comfy on a gloomy cold day!

How to style this trend: Try pairing an oversized sweater with leggings and boots and if your feeling edgy try it with a fitted mini dress, textured tights and knee high boots!

Also, don’t be afraid to wear this trend to work; just add a belt around the waist put on a pencil skirt and ankle booties with tights and you are ready for the office!

Finding the best oversized sweater for your body:

1. If you have curves tuck part of the sweater into your jeans or try an asymmetric style.

2. If you bigger below bring the focus up with color and cut. A sweater that is longer in back will elongate your legs. Also, try pairing it over a long flowy skirt.

3. If you are thin try a chunky sweater. Shine will add curves above!

TREND OF THE DAY: Who said women can’t be stylish in loafers!

Every season more and more men’s inspired clothing and accessories are made for women. One of my favorites this season is LOAFERS! They are similar to a flats functionality but give the outfit more edge and visual interest! They are great for just about any occasion. They can take a skinny jean and t- shirt and give it some flare as well as dressing up a great work suit! You can chose from suede, rhinestones, patent leather, leather and an endless color wheel!

Are you ready for fall? Have you started to add great pieces to transition your wardrobe from summer to fall?

Well, whether you have or have not fear not FSR is here to help you ease into fall with just a few great ideas! After working in retail for many years I have noticed many people have the misconception that they must buy a whole new wardrobe for each season. And that may be great for some who have an endless supply of money. However, for those who may be on a budget a few pieces are all you need. It is truly unnecessary to start over each season with a new wardrobe. Me being from Seattle an transitioning into Southern California I had to learn how to combine to totally different wardrobes. Now going into my third Winter in California I have learned that with just a few great pieces and adding a few additional trend pieces my wardrobe is ready for Fall.

This Fall is particularly trending with an Equestrian Style. So a few pieces that would be great to update your style for Fall as well as adding a touch of Equestrian Style are as follows…

#1. Essential must have for Fall is a great pair of boots! And why not try an equestrian inspired pair! I am especially loving the black and brown combo!

#2. Equestrian inspired belt! Belts are always a great way to define your waist. And also a great way to accessorize a chunky sweater!
