One huge fall trend this year is animal print. It is literally EVERYWHERE! I’ve loved a good leopard print for as long as I can remember. In fact, I tried to start a #CheetahRevolution when I was 18 years old. Leopard isn’t the only animal print currently on trend. Some other big ones include snake print & croc style. 

Even though I am clearly a big fan of leopard print, I’ve been considering how this print fits into my current classic & feminine style. Today I am sharing how I will be incorporating this trend into my wardrobe this season as well as some of my favorite pieces that can be added to just about any wardrobe.

Typically, I would say that leopard print is a neutral, so wear it as such, but this dress makes quite the statement. The reason I went for something so bold was two-fold: the colors are comprised of many of my favorite fall tones I wear regularly & the silhouette this dress creates is very feminine & a go-to in my closet. Usually when I find something with a bold print or pattern, but they fit both of the above requirements, I know it will fit seamlessly into my wardrobe. A good way to make sure of this is knowing that the colors are ones that you wear regularly, & the shape of the item is a classic silhouette you are always drawn to.

Another way I like to incorporate animal print is with accessories. This is definitely the easiest & safest way to wear this trend. Think scarves, berets, shoes, & handbags. These pieces are easy to pair with items currently in your wardrobe. To ensure an easy fit, make sure the print stays in its true & natural colors. Then you can really treat these items as a neutral & wear them with almost anything.

Whenever I’m unsure about what to wear on a fall morning, outfits like this one are always my go-to. It’s comprised of a simple template that can be created over and over again by just changing out the pieces. The template is as follows: a cozy fall sweater, a mini skirt, a scarf, & either a simple pair of ballet flats or knee high boots depending on how chilly it is outside. It’s that easy. This template creates the perfect fall silhouette that instantly makes you look put together & classically chic.

This bright orange-red color is so big this season. I love the combination of the bright chunky sweater with the matching ballet flats. The tan leather mini skirt I found at Zara last year is the perfect neutral piece to break up the color. I also just love how this black bag goes with the tan skirt. It’s such a classic fall combo. My favorite blue scarf really pulls this look together & gives the look that Parisian flare that I always crave in an outfit.

Fall brings about a sort of nostalgia for me. It takes me back to classic styles, traditional fall tones & a cross between Parisian & preppy style. It’s the chilly football games with friends, or the hot coffee on my morning commute in the City under the changing leaves. Fall means cozy, effortless, closeness, warmth, crisp air, joy, & romance. I want my clothes to embrace all of those things during this season & today I’m rounding up all of my favorite fall classics at the most affordable prices. There is something for everyone here. Let’s dive right into that classic feel.

I tried to stay under $50 in this round up, there are just a couple over but I had to still include them. These are all such gorgeous pieces, & if you hover over each picture, you can see the amazing price point they are at. 

I actually own quite a few of these pieces. The picture of this navy & gold tweed skirt definitely doesn’t do it justice, but this has been in my wardrobe for over a year now, & is one of my fall favorites. Also, just purchased 2 new pairs of boots for the season (here & here) that are both under $45! Let me tell you, they are gorgeous! My green long sleeve dress (seen here) is under $25. You’ll be seeing this tweed jacket & this ruffled skirt here on the blog soon. Lastly, this super cute crossbody bag received so many compliments last season & I’m thrilled to see it around again.

It’s been raining quite a bit here in Richmond, like a lot. Instead of getting those rainy day blues & feeling uninspired by my outfits, I’ve been challenging myself to dress the way I feel regardless of all the dark clouds in the sky. Even if the rain makes me a little sleepy, I’ve found that dressing the way I want to feel often changes my outlook for the day. It even boosts my mood & my confidence for whatever the day brings. I mean, how could you not smile when wearing rainy day ruffles?!

This dress is so gorgeous. As I’ve said before, Chicwish is an incredible brand that produces very unique & detailed pieces at a very affordable price. I fell in love with this dress the moment I saw it & originally pictured myself wearing it for a more fancy occasion than a regular rainy day. The other day I just decided to put it on because of how happy I felt wearing it & decided I wanted to just keep wearing it the rest of the day. I love the challenge of trying to dress up & dress down pieces in my wardrobe, but this was one of my favorites.

Since it was rainy outside, I knew I had to wear leather shoes as opposed to suede shoes. I honestly haven’t worn these silver oxfords in quite some time, but I absolutely love how they look with this ruffled dress. In an effort to keep this look a little bit more casual, I paired it with my burgundy cardigan that has been a staple in my wardrobe for close to 10 years now. I love the navy & the burgundy together & I think the mixture of the two textures just works.

I have honestly never thought of lavender as a fall color before. I’ve always just seen it as a happy spring shade, but I have been seeing it in a new light as of late. As you all know, I’ve been playing around with different colors in my wardrobe lately, & I’m totally loving how this lovely lavender shade is pairing with some of my favorite fall tones. Let me show you what I mean.

One way to integrate lavender into your fall wardrobe is to mix it with other classic fall tones. Lavender plays well with navy, gold, & camel, but a new combination that I am so excited about it lavender & burgundy. As you know from my recent post, burgundy is one of my very favorites to wear in the fall, so opening the door to mixing it with this gorgeous lavender color is creating so many new outfits for me.

Here is a sneak peek into my lavender infused outfits for this fall:

First, a lavender knit sweater layered over a cream lace high-neck blouse with a navy & gold tweed mini skirt & a pair of brown knee high boots.

Then, a lavender floral long sleeved dress under my navy velvet J.Crew dress with either boots or loafers.

Next, a lavender floral pussy bow top under a cream balloon sleeve top with a velvet midi skirt in rust & either ballerinas or heels.

Finally, a lavender velvet mini skirt with a camel turtleneck & matching camel beret paired with a neutral block heel.

Florals for fall can be a bit tricky. Since I like to dress very seasonally, I’ve found that choosing floral pieces with fall tones, like the ones talked about in my last post, tend to work perfectly for this time of year. They also fit seamlessly into my existing fall wardrobe.

This amazing 3D floral embroidered dress from Chicwish is one of the best fall floral occasion dresses I’ve seen. Finding floral everyday dresses for fall is one thing, but finding one for a night out at an affordable price is a whole other story. Chicwish provides such special, one of a kind pieces at the right price. This is something I absolutely love & appreciate about this brand.

This dress is so special. I can’t wait to wear it out with my husband or to any events I may have coming up this fall. It fits me like a dream, & the details on it make this dress quite a statement piece. I’ve been inspired by color as of late, & chose to pair this fall toned orange dress with a pair of light blue heels. I find that this color of blue can really work in every season & is one of my favorites to wear.

Even though this dress is definitely very fancy, I also plan on dressing it down a bit to wear out for drinks or dinners this fall. Instead of wearing it as a dress, I can’t wait to throw on a chunky knit sweater over top to make it look like a skirt with either a pair of ballerinas or nude loafers. Let me know it you guys want to see the dressed down version in action.
