The best things about this time of year: tomatoes at the farmer’s market, rich sunsets, and- most of all- new fall clothes. Our stylist, Sher, breaks down the season’s best go-to looks, and exactly how to wear them with anything, everything and each other. Watch and become a master mixologist. No license needed.
1: The Denim Peplum Jacket
Oh denim! Don’t ask me how many denim jackets I have- it’s a lot. But this one is like nothing else I have in my closet. Why? Because it is so versatile; it’s got the peplum, which draws in your waist. It’s perfect over a pair of pants or a pencil skirt. And here’s the best part: you can unzip the bottom and it becomes a little bolero jacket. So if you want to wear it to the theater, (I don’t know about you, but I’m always cold) if you want to wear it to a restaurant, if you want to wear a sleeveless sundress, and but need some stylish arm coverage: this is the denim jacket for you.
2: The Side Button Nicolette Pullover
In my twenty years at Chico’s this is probably my favorite little knit sweater ever. You can change it up by: rolling up the sleeves, tucking it completely in, tucking it in the front only,or leaving it out for a really “cool girl” look.
3: The Everyday Peasant Top
This is that feminine, awesome little peasant looking top that I am always looking for. I just feel great it in it. It’s got an elastic bottom, so it gives me a waistline, and I don’t have to tuck it in if I don’t want to. But, I can tuck it in if I feel like it. It’s so pretty, that I feel like such a girl when I wear it! There is nothing better about being a girl than being a girl! Try it with this season’s wide legged pant. It’s gorgeous!
4: The Leopard Scarf
Okay this is one of the key pieces to becoming a true mixologist: Put it in your hair, around your neck, around your waist, like a belt. My favorite application: I matched it up with this soft leopard top and it makes it look like a beautiful blouse. It’s seriously the hardest working piece in my closet right now. Did I mention it goes with everything? It does. Leopard is my favorite color.
5: The Faux Suede Jacket
I have never been on a motorcycle; I wouldn’t dream of it- that helmet would destroy my hair, but I love to wear a motorcycle jacket just to pretend. This version is spectacular. It’s an amazing cobalt blue, so you can wear it with jeans, or you can wear it with a cream pant and really mix it up. You can dress it up with heels, or use it to dress up a more casual look, like that distressed denim. It works both ways! When I wear this jacket, I feel like people are looking at me and thinking “that girl knows what’s happening…” It’s just cool.
