Dressing for Fall

HOW TO WEAR FALL 2017 COLOR TRENDS

The Steele Maiden: How to Wear Fall 2017 Color Trends

One of the things I love most about dressing for Fall is the color. Rich jewel tones, luxe neutrals, and pops of brights. When I spotted Pantone’s predictions for the Fall color trends I was swooning and knew I wanted to highlight a few combos of how to wear them. Below – my favorite combos of the moment, but honestly the options are endless.

SUMMER TO FALL TRANSITIONAL STYLE WITH OLD NAVY

The Steele Maiden: Summer to Fall Transitional Style with Old Navy

August is that tricky time when I never want to give up Summer weather, but I’m also starting to crave a Fall wardrobe. Which is why I try to find pieces that can bridge that gap (even better when they’re super affordable from Old Navy). A lightweight polka dot dress and cute ruffled sleeve floral top are both pieces that can easily be worn now and later. Here, two ways to wear both pieces.

For now, I’ll be tossing this polka dot dress on, grabbing a straw tote and sandals and soaking up the last of that summer sun. This would make for a cute Labor Day weekend backyard barbecue outfit too! And in a few more weeks when the morning’s start to turn cool, I’ll add this light cardigan (love the little fringe detail on this one) and switch to suede booties and a wine-stained lipstick to match.

I talked about it earlier this week – but the ‘statement top’ trend isn’t going anywhere for Fall and florals are going to be a major trend too (not mad about it). I love that this top is long sleeved so it transitions easily, but has that cute cut-out and ruffle detail. For now, I played up the summer whites for an easy weekend brunch look. But come Fall, I’ll be wearing it with this suede moto jacket (looks 3x as expensive as it actually is) and these cropped dark jeans. I like that they’re really clean but have a subtle little flare at the ends and a raw hem. They’ll go with everything I tell ya.

DATE NIGHT STYLE IN A RUFFLE ONE SHOULDER TOP

The Steele Maiden: Date Night Style with Parker New York

A lot of my wardrobe translates pretty easily from work to weekend. But sometimes, an article of clothing comes along that says – date night or bust baby. This pink, ruffled, one shoulder top does exactly that. And who am I to deny it?

PLAID BOYFRIEND SHIRT AND SLIP-ON ANKLE BOOTS

Nordstrom Plaid Boyfriend Shirt and Fossil Leather Tassel Bag

Wait – where did the weekend go?! Adam and I were busy all over town, and then out of town, shooting a bunch of holiday content that I can’t wait to share with you all (you’ll want to tune in on November 14th). So while I didn’t do much relaxing, I did wear this relaxed outfit on Saturday afternoon which involved my softest plaid boyfriend shirt and these comfy slip-on ankle boots.

WEEKEND STYLE IN STRIPED KNIT DRESS AND QUILTED VEST

The Steele Maiden: Weekend Style - stripe knit dress, quilted vest and white sneakers

A brunch-indulging, sidewalk-strolling, weekend-ready look.. because I am very ready for the weekend. I wore this striped dress, quilted vest and sneakers around town last Sunday when we spent most of the day enjoying this ongoing warm weather in New York and not having much of a schedule. Which is in stark contrast to the packed schedule I’ve got for this weekend – but at least I’ve got the relaxed outfit, right?
