Less is More: Welcoming Fall Fashion

The cooler temperatures were definitely lurking in Pittsburgh this weekend! Not to worry though Pittsburghers, the upcoming week is still filled with a few 80 degree days. And while it’s sad to see summer on its way out, I’m welcoming fall fashion along with the change of seasons, which is the inspiration behind today’s Less is More post.

Fall is easily my favorite season; it’s always exciting to pull out cozy, oversized sweaters and rich fabrics like suede, tweed and leather. Suede is going to be everywhere this season, and so are A-line mini skirts. I am a fan of seventies boho-inspired fashions and there are ways to embrace the trends while remaining true to my [overall] classic style. The looks below are created with: an oversized sweater, a striped black and white turtleneck, a pair of black jeans, a suede mini-skirt and a pair of cognac knee-high boots.

Create the look

Sweater: Free People
Turtleneck: Abercrombie & Fitch
Jeans: Madewell
Skirt: LOVE this one from Nordstrom
Boots: Nine West


A couple notes on the pieces I’ve chosen: Madewell is quickly becoming my favorite brand for jeans. As a petite woman, the complimentary hemming is awesome! And these boots from Nine West are the ideal mix of simple without looking so much like riding boots.
