As the days slowly turn from California summer to crisp fall, I’m relishing the chance to break out my jackets, boots and hats. But before I go full force (trust me, it’s taking every fiber of my being!) I’m easing into the weather change with some transitional pieces.
I picked up this Tibi top towards the end of summer and its light cotton fabric was perfect for sailing trips and brunching with friends on weekends. Thankfully this is a style Tibi continues year round, and for fall/winter they’ve made some incredible options in silk crepe, lurex knit and tweed. The tie sleeves can be worn up or down, giving you tons of styling options. I wore mine cinched, with the ties undone for an edgier vibe but it works just as well worn loose for a bell sleeved effect.
If you don’t have a pair of wide leg pants in your wardrobe, I highly recommend them for fall. This Madewell pair is from last season but I’ve linked some great alternatives under $100 above. Not only is a wider leg totally on trend, but they work incredibly well with all kinds of shoes. For the transitional weather we’re having, I opted for open toed, suede mules, but when the temps drop I’ll definitely be breaking out my pointed toe ankle boots and velvet pumps. This pair has an elastic waistband which is another reason why I love them – the look is much more elevated than jeans yet still super comfortable.
Now is a great time to invest in fall staples as many of the major department stores are having their Friends & Family sale. Take 25% off your purchase at Bloomingdale’s (Loyalists also earn a $25 gift card for every $100 they spend), 25% off at Saks Fifth Avenue and 40% off your purchase at Banana Republic.
