In a Oct book of our fashion recommendation mainstay “Ask Megan,” Style Coach Megan LaRussa Chenoweth of Megan LaRussa tackles readers’ questions about tumble trends, updating your habit and many more!
I wish to wear my group colors yet going over a top. Do we have any recommendations on how to wear game-day character tastefully?
As a character manager who lives in a Southeast and enjoys examination college football, this is one of my favorite topics. It can be easy to support your group in style, while also being gentle (an critical cause if you’re attending a diversion and formulation on doing a lot of walking). But we have to have a right equipment in your closet to make removing dressed for diversion day a breeze.
First and foremost, work with what you’ve got. If we are an Auburn fan, try wearing a navy or orange work-day tip from your closet, and instead of wearing it with a pencil dress or trousers, like we competence for work, wear it with white or dark-wash jeans and a infrequent shoe. Repurposing equipment creates for a some-more versatile wardrobe, so creation removing dressed easier while also saving we money.

If we don’t possess any tops, sweaters or dresses in your team’s hues, afterwards demeanour for accessories in your tone of choice. For instance if you’re an Alabama fan and we have a lot of black in your wardrobe, buy a pleasing flush headband or a span of flush booties for a pleasing hold of game-day spirit. This does not meant sporting logo-centric accessories that can be noticed as less-than-chic, yet instead adhering to colorful accessories to support your favorite team.
I gathered my favorite and oh-so-stylish game-day equipment in this handy game-day character guide.
I’ve listened that mules have come behind in style, yet we am not certain what kind of mules they mean. Could we elaborate on this?
You are spot-on — mules are behind in style! They took a small hiatus, yet have come behind in a complicated way. The many renouned and easy-to-wear character is a prosaic slip-on jackass that can be ragged accidentally or dressy-casually. We’re saying good suede sandal styles that are ideal for transition weather. And we’re also saying pointed-toe and closed-toe styles that are a new ballet prosaic for a season. Mules are an easy approach to refurbish your tumble outfits from final season.
The other jackass that is in character right now is a stacked, or block-heel, mule. The easiest and, in my opinion, a many stylish chronicle of this would be an open-toe style. Pick a heel tallness formed on your comfort level, either that’s a 1- to 2-inch heel for daily palliate and comfort, or a 3-inch heel for an dusk shoe option. These stacked-heel mules are fanciful when finished in suede or velvet in pleasing tumble hues. I’ve also seen them in lead and animal print, that can offer as a fun neutral in your tumble outfits.
What are a must-have equipment that we should squeeze for tumble and winter?
I adore zero some-more than a good must-have list! But for any season, there should be dual must-have lists: One list of good basis for a deteriorate and one list of some-more trend-driven items. To assistance we get started with your fall/winter shopping, I’ll share a few of a equipment from any list. First, we’ll concentration on a foundational tumble pieces, as those are a equipment that emanate a fortitude of your habit and assistance we make a far-reaching accumulation of discriminating outfits:
Choose a cut that is many graceful to your figure, either that’s a spare jean, boot-cut or true leg.
Suede or leather ankle booties
Select a heel tallness that is many gentle for we and your lifestyle.
Lightweight third pieces
You wish third pieces like a leather jacket, blazer, cardigan, vest or denim coupler — equipment that span easily with a simple tee, silk blouse or hankie turtleneck.
Next, let’s speak about some-more smart pieces that can supplement some “runway relevance” and modernity to your basics:
Velvet is a hardness of a season, and it looks pleasing in a far-reaching array of items. Try an ankle bootie, a span of jeans, a blouse or even a bomber coupler — whichever object best suits your character and silhouette.
Frayed-hem unsettled jeans
These jeans are a “in” denim character right now. From two-tone denim to unsettled hems to embellishments all over, fun-loving denim is a breathe that will rouse your infrequent demeanour to “dressy-casual” this fall.
Florals demeanour pleasing this deteriorate with low dim backgrounds and abounding red flowers. Try this settlement du jour in a dress, jean or blouse for a complicated take on a classical print.
Decide that trends and basis are right for you, afterwards have some fun and strike a stores for a small tumble shopping!
I recently did a closet clean-out myself! How do we know if we have private all of a old-fashioned items? What is even deliberate outdated?
A good ubiquitous sequence of ride is if a mantle or appendage has been in your closet for some-more than 5 years, it’s substantially antiquated or only ragged out. There are exceptions, generally if you’ve invested in engineer habit (and I’m articulate Chanel-level designer). As you’re cleaning, ask yourself how prolonged you’ve had it in your closet AND have we been drawn to wear it — be honest with yourself.
Another approach to know what’s antiquated is to teach yourself on a stream styles. See what’s in high-end stores like Saks Fifth Avenue each season. Even if we are not selling in these stores, their register will uncover we what’s modern, as these stores will not batch prehistoric items. Also, collect adult a repository like InStyle, and review a silhouettes, fabrics, prints, necklines and valuables styles with what’s in your closet to see if what we have is dated. This of march doesn’t always request to those simple and classical items, yet it will assistance we streamline your habit and keep we looking current.

What is a tone of a season?
Drum hurl greatfully … a tone of a deteriorate is: RED! And not only simple red, yet all gorgeous, wealthy shades of red from burgundy to flush to burnt orange to crimson and all in between. And yes, there are other critical fall/winter 2017 colors, yet if we have to collect only one, it would be one of these pleasing shades of red.
If we are a neutral-loving girl, afterwards I’d inspire we to supplement a lurch of red into your habit and provide it like a neutral. Whether it be a red mule, a red headband or a good span of red matter earrings, whatever suits your character works.
If we are a color-loving girl, afterwards go all out! Wear red in a tonal approach for a super stylish and graceful look. Select a burgundy span of jeans, and span them with a carmine sweater, and tip it all off with a fuchsia scarf. It creates a truly engaging and on-trend look.
We adore a sponsors!
Cheers to rocking red your possess way!
