Oh, Fall: Crunchy leaves, warm lattes, and many sweaters. Frosty air, big scarves and cozy evenings.
But it's also the season of dark mornings, the ones that send you back under the covers, slapping your phone for another eight minutes of snoozing. We don't blame you - it's hard to be pepped up for the day when it's not even day yet.
Knowing that you can get dressed in a flash means a few more precious minutes in dreamland. And we're all for that. So we put together a little helpful guide to easy outfits.
How to: You know that favourite tank you wore all Summer? There's no need to pack it away. Use it as a bright base layer to pep up your Fall neutrals. Even cropped lengths can be tucked into high-waisted pants (ahem, Slacker Pants).
Shop the look: Haymaker Henley, Cowgirl Skirt.
It's cozy, it's stretchy, it's that one you'd wear every day of the week if you could. Well... why not? Don't be afraid of reaching for your all-star garment, even if you wore it yesterday. Yes, even if it's inside-out on the floor. More wears means less laundry, which, bonus, is good for the planet. Tuck it into jeans one day, hide it away under a jacket the next, then switch it up to a skirt before layering it under a silk tank. Voila.
Go For the Bold
Okay, this one might take a couple more minutes. But sometimes a bright outfit is exactly what you need to bring the sunshine into your morning. Combining patterns is daunting, but we have a quick tip: pick out similar colours. As you can see in the above photo, the contrasting prints actually have a lot in common. Mauve, magenta, red and mustard are present throughout. This ties in the two fabrics in a way that is delightfully unexpected. Try it out (preferably when you're not running twenty minutes late, wink).
Jackets Aren't Just for Outdoors
The lightweight jacket that was your fav for chilly summer evenings could very well be your statement piece for winter. Layer over just about any shirt or overalls, and you're guaranteed to be cozy all day. It also provides a focal point upon which to build the rest of your outfit. Jackets are generally regarded as a more formal garment, so you can go for casual favourites underneath. Pro tip: if it's chilly out, wear your boxier coat as the outer layer for your commute.
Pants Don't Have to Be Boring
Pants tend to be the last garment we think about, a faithful neutral-hues sidekick to compliment whatever printed shirt you pick. But no - they can be your showcase piece! We're including out Tailoralls in this mix, as they are (in our opinion) a pinnacle of versatile styling.
Transform your Slacker Pants by tying the belts either at the front, or wrapping to the back. This Saddle Brown tencel is our top pick for this season's brightest neutral - meaning it plays nice with colours and peps up neutrals all in one go.
Shop the look: Haymaker Henley, Tencel Tailoralls.
Tailoralls also beg to be reinvented as the week wears on (because trust us - you'll want to wear them all the time). By flipping the bib down and lengthening the shoulder straps, you can tie them as a belt for a very fascinating pair of pants.
And there we have it; precious minute-saving dressing tips. Reinvent your favourites, try something new, or bring your Summer pieces into Fall. Happy Snoozing. Xo
