October is a tricky month for fashion. One day the weather feels like a crisp summer day and the next like a precursor to winter’s frosty chill. Needless to say, layering up is a must. That’s why I love casual separates for fall. Denim, breezy blouses, flowy cardigan sweaters and cozy ankle boots are all go-tos for me this month, and this outfit from Democracy is the perfect choice for everything from football games to brunch with the girls or walks with my dog.
As a dedicated denim lover, I’m always on the lookout for a pair of jeans that fit my body to a T. These “booty lift” blue jeans from Democracy are a flattering and comfortable fit for so many body shapes. I love the subtle stretch of the material, as well as how they hug my curves. The dark wash is great for casual Fridays, while lighter washes and colored denim are a perfect choice for the weekend. Add a neutral blouse, which looks fabulous with or without a topper, and you’re ready to conquer fall like a fashion superstar. For those chillier days, a light cardigan sweater with a bit of flow will ward off the cool air — and look cool as well.
Fall fashion is all about making the most of fabulous accessories. For this look, I opted for a pair of casual cowboy-inspired ankle boots by Dolce Vita —so comfortable and a great choice for denim looks and boho chic dresses alike. Add a statement handbag, like this Ralph Lauren suede fringe satchel, and your look is instantly elevated to ’70s-inspired awesome. A few long mixed metals necklaces, and the look is casual posh.
From dazzling denim that flatters your curves to cozy sweaters and casual tops that are beyond-perfect for layering, this fall is all about fun layered looks that update weekend casual to a new level. And remember — the accessories are everything! Opt for a mix of gold and silver jewelry pieces, neutral boots and a statement handbag to take your fall style from comfy cas to uber chic.
