Fall Fashion in a Nutshell

• 14 September 2009



































Stylish Kyong, owner of the fantastic SLC boutique Koo de Ker, shares some Fall fashion tips with us today. If you are in the Salt Lake area, stop by for a visit and check out all the new pieces pouring in everyday!

"Fashion this fall has become rather season less. It's all about incorporating what you already have from summer and pairing it up with key pieces for fall."

1. The must have this season is a leather jacket. It can toughen up a dress or a frilly skirt. It's a classic piece that you'll be able to wear for years to come.

2. Don't stash away your pretty summer dresses. Pair them with tights and a leather jacket, or a long cardigan and your set. I love the look of booties and tights with dresses.

3. Another classic piece to have this fall is a long cardigan. This is something that can be worn with skinny jeans,leggings, over skirts, and especially worn over dresses with tights. A great way to dress up your cardigan is a skinny belt at the waist.

4. Everybody has a black or Grey coat in there closet. Why not spice things up a bit and get a bright coat for winter? Sometimes we end up leaving our coat on and it becomes the outfit. Be sure to get a coat that can be dressed up or down. Adding a colorful scarf, brooch or belt can do wonders.

5. Skirts are still a great way to transition to fall. Any skirt will do, high waisted, pencil, wool skirts with plaid. Again these can be paired with tights or for more warmth leggings.

6. Don't be afraid to mix patterns, textures, and lengths.

7. Keep an eye on proportions. For example, pair a shorter skirt with a longer top tucked in or loose top with a belt. Also, when wearing skinny jeans add a "flowy" top to balance the bottom half. You get the idea!

8. There is nothing fashionable about being too matchy-matchy and too put together. Remember, there is nothing wrong with wearing a casual printed tee, a pretty floral skirt, and leather jacket. Mix it up and have fun!

I'm just tripping over how beautiful those pieces are. The coat is fabulous, and there's a soft spot in my heart for the black skirt. Oh beautiful.

Thanks for commenting on my blog, by the way. I've seen your blog before, and I can't remember how I got to it. Who in SF are you buddies with?
