Fall fashion reigns supreme in my book . Send me all the cardigans, booties, and jeans you can find! There’s nothing like a brisk October breeze, a pumpkin spiced latte, and the perfect sweater to keep you warm and cozy, all while looking undeniably chic and sophisticated.
I have always navigated towards neutral colors and brown tones, so I decided this season I would venture out and explore some new hues. Free People is typically out of my price range, but in these past few months I have learned a lot more about retail. The quality of their sweaters is unbeatable and there are many ways to snag this brand on sale. I promise it’s worth the extra few dollars because basic sweaters never go out of style. I was intrigued by the color of this particular cardigan and the frayed detail. I love that it can be worn with jeans, leggings, or even over a dress. It’s beyond functional. On many past occasions I have thrown functionality out the window and conformed to the latest trends. As fashion becomes more of my daily routine and livelihood, however, practicality is key. When making more outlandish purchases you must ask yourself the longevity of this product. If it’s an expensive pair of embroidered pants whose “trending” lifespan seems short, I would say refrain. Basics, however, are always a wise investment!
If a brand, like Free People, is desirable but the cost makes you cringe, don’t fret. Sites such as Amazon and Nordstrom, offer a variety of styles and brands like this, at discounted prices and often have sales. Take advantage when they do. If this means stocking up on your favorite styles at the end of the season, who cares. You will be one step ahead for the following year!
As the days get shorter and the temperatures continue to drop, stock up on all the cozy sweaters you can find and have fun styling them. Don’t let the winter blues bring you down. The fashion world is calling your name. Run to the nearest mall or computer and start shopping. “Nothing haunts us like the things we didn’t buy.”
