Fall Fashion – The Art of Neutral Layering

30 Oct

Let's Fall For Fall

Fall is all about color and that includes all the crisp shades of neutral: Think creamy whites, soft beiges & rich tans, and don’t forget those pops of gold! Nope, nothing is more classic fall than rocking the full spectrum of neutral. Like the timeless beauties of the past, neutrals are soft & feminine but never understated.

Beyond color, nothing screams “Hello, Fall” more than layers, layers, and more layers! At Lindsay Phillips, we’re all about endless possibilities and effortless style, so layers go right along with our motto of keeping it simple and fun. Layering is just as easy as switching out the snaps on your switchflops and you really just need a few staples like the one’s we’re featuring this week from ModCloth!

Start with a pair of dark wash straight leg or skinny ankle jeans, like these Front Row Fashionista Jeans from Mod Cloth. Add a smooth, light neutral tank (preferably with a little length to it, like this A Layer to Love Tank in Eggshell, which pairs perfectly under sheer blouses or even LP Cover-ups-turned-dresses-&-tops). Top these basics with a cropped sweater, cardigan, or tunic, either tucking in your tank or leaving it out to help smooth your curves and add comfort, length, and coverage.

Where you go from here is up to you and of course, the weather! We embrace fall in the south just as much as anyone, but with our fall weather still at a balmy 70-plus degrees, the key to layers is keeping them light– think sleeveless blouses like this ModCloth charmer with a navy & cream print that infuses the classic fall plaid texture with neutral colors, all on a semi-sheer lightweight fabric – perfect!

We Florida gals are never one to turn down a light sweater or cardigan – the perfect staple to keep us cozy in the air conditioning and evening beach breezes. Look for a lightweight sweater with a clever chunky texture vibe, like this super chic Chai There Cardigan – with its varied knit patterns, this cardi gives the look of a fall sweater without the heaviness. And by the way, if you want to add a few more staple cardis to your closet, don’t forget to scope out ModCloth’s entire collection! Next, don’t forget to spice it up with cinnamon-colored booties! We’re having a blast with the new LP Leah Ankle Boot, made of soft perforated suede for subtle texture that goes a long way. Just roll up your jeans so the top of Leah sits just below the cuff, and you’re almost done!

No autumn ensemble is complete without the final touches of gold and nature-inspired texture, like these unique honeycomb earrings. Pull your whole look together with a few gold pops of gold near your hands, like this funky v-shaped gold knuckle ring set and our gold interchangeable cuff, shown here with our all-new Robyn  snap that you can have monogrammed so your fall style always bears your personal stamp!
