RLGT Style: Fall Finessin’
(Above: Everyone’s bae, Niykee Heaton finesse’s on em’)
Once a year, every human is forced to face the facts, and admit something they don’t want to have to admit: Summer is over.
September 23rd officially marked the first day of Fall, officially. While unofficially some might recognize the last few weeks as #RLGTSeason with all of our latest new drops ( *inserts shameless plug*: Grab a tee, here!), the fact is that the cold Canadian weather is coming, but luckily we’ll get to ease into Winter with a few weeks of crunchy leaves, and/or pumpkin spice latte’s for all our white-girls out there.
If there is one plus to having a transition into Autumn, it would clearly have to be the versatility of style that the in-between weather allows for; Finessin’ into Fall, if you will.
Last week, I showed the guys how to mix it up this Fall (and eventually Winter) by keeping an arsenal of outerwear to mix and match. In this weeks edition, a good pal of the team, Dakota, takes the lead, and will show our female readers out there how to keep it casual, simple, and affordable this Fall, with a few carryovers from Summer. This one is FTG!
- Dress By Jack & Elliot
- Booties from Spring
- Accessories from Nine West
“With the Indian summer we had creeping into the first week of October, I was able to recycle this multi-season outfit that was not only casual and simple, but most importantly, affordable!
With this glamorous black and white, striped dress from Jack & Elliot, burgundy Nine West sunnies, and black booties from Spring, this is all possible. Being a starving student, I make it a goal to stay true to my self-proclaimed title of “queen of looking good for less”, so I usually try to stick with only one pricey center-piece, and see how many looks I can create using inexpensive, but good quality additions to the ensemble. I recently saw a pair of Rag and Bone boots almost completely identical to my pair from Spring for over $200.00, whereas mine cost only $54.00!”
Furthermore, with the darker colors of the entire outfit, I can get away with wearing a shorter styled dress and shades, all the way until the snow comes. I also like pairing the dress with my Levis light denim jacket, and sheer black nylons when YYC tosses us the weather curve-balls that we are all too familiar with.”
As Dakota described so perfectly, the luxury of having summer items that lend themselves to be recreated during the warm months (and vise-versa) is a necessity, and definitely something to consider when making those end of the season purchases. This, plus the notion that multiple outfits can be rotated around one staple item are 2 of the most important tips for keeping it clean, without breaking open the piggy-bank.
At the end of the day, the main idea behind any style tip should be WEAR WHAT YOU LIKE. As you can tell by the write-up above by Dakota, when you have confidence in your personal appearance, everything else will fall into place. Being comfortable with who you are, has ALWAYS looked this good. Keep it simple, keep it classy, and find out what works for you.
Consider RLGT Style to be testimonies, not tips. The motto remains the same: Be a taste-maker, not a taste-tester.
