Fall

She's Got Layers: How To Wear Layers For Fall

Hi Bella’s! Its Cate here - the fall Intern!

It’s fall time here in Michigan which means pumpkin everything, colorful leaves, and sunshine right?! Calling this beautiful place home has so many perks… however, one thing that avid fashion lovers like myself resent about this Midwestern state is the wacky weather! Waking up to 40 degree’s in the morning and walking outside at 2 pm to 80 degrees seems to be an unfortunate norm. Snow to sleet to fog, Michigan covers all the bases!

That being said, I am here to combat these unfortunate weather patterns with a style guide focused on how to dress for any sort of conditions. Each outfit is centered around the sole purpose of being able to work in any sort of weather mother nature decides to throw at us!

Between jackets, sweaters, and tee’s, we are showing YOU how to dress in layers!

    Find Your Style

    Skinny

     A tried and true style that hugs your curves in all the right ways. These jeans will go with everything including your cozy oversized sweater! 

    Flare

    These trendy jeans are coming back in a dramatic way.  Whether slightly cropped or full length, anyone can rock them with a heel or bootie and look stylish and relaxed. 

    Boyfriend

    You already have your boyfriend's sweatshirt so why not take his jean style too? Be comfy and cute with these relaxed fitting jeans! Bring them up high waisted and cinch with a belt for an extra dose of adorable.

    Cropped

    Sometimes jeans are too long and sometimes you simply want to show off your high top sneaks-- which is why cropped jeans will be your new BFF. This abbreviated length can be fitted skinny, boyfriend, or flared so be on the lookout for a shorter version of your favorite style.

    Raw Hem

    Add a bohemian flare to your denim with a raw hem! You can determine how distressed you want your look to be by choosing between a few loose threads or a full frayed hem.
