Two Ways: Wearing Fall Color

Two Ways: Wearing Fall Color

Rust has become one of my favorite wardrobe colors.  It looks great on many woman, and it’s a bit of an unexpected choice in a world filled with burgundy and navy.  So let’s style this rust sweater two ways.

Sweater // I like the mock neck, funnel neck sweater trend. They give you that turtleneck look without rubbing all over your neck and making you itch.  This sweater from Goodnight Macaroon has a very interesting horizontal weave pattern.  At <$60, it’s an affordable fall option.  The size range, however, is pretty limited running only S to L.

I also like this rust-colored Pieces cable knit and this waffle pullover from The Rack (also in plus).  This ballon sleeve sweater from Cable Stitch also caught my eye.  Plus-size?  Try this Ava and Viv sweater.  Petite? This BR sweater comes in a dark rust.

For Work from Home // I still love ecru-colored jeans for fall.  They’re softer than white, hide dirt marginally better, and look great with fall hues.  I chose this pair from Everlane are from their super soft collection and have a very comfy wide leg style.  NYDJ also has a skinny leg style.

Want an ivory trouser for work?  Talbots still has lined pants (God, bless them), also in plus size.

Prefer something totally relaxed?  I think this sweater would look incredible with a pair of oatmeal lounge pants.

I added a pair of leopard flats in a smaller print.  These flats are probably one of my favorite leopard pairs that I’ve ever seen because the color is nice and the print isn’t loud.

I finished off the look with these absolutely charming hoop earrings.  They’re affordable and subtle, yet still different.  They look really dainty and pretty on.

For the makeup, I like a very-hued wash here.  I think it plays with the rust color well, a red is gong to be too much.  So I chose Black Honey.  For the hair, I would probably wear it up because of the collar on the sweater.

For the Office // If you’re going into the office (and your employer is taking precautions that make you feel safe), I am jealous.  I’d love to get the heck out of this house for a few days a week.  Even if it is mostly to take my dresses for spin.

This J.Crew Icon trench is one that I just purchased to replace an old trench.  The quality is good.  It’s not excellent beyond measure, but I’m very happy with it.  The wider lapel is nice.  And it’s currently 35% off with code THEBEST.  For a more affordable option, H&M has a slightly slouchy trench that is worth a look.

I chose to do a one-tone look with this sweater.  This rust-colored skirt from Express is a nice option.  If you were planning a casual date night, I would try this satin front-slit skirt.  Plus-size?  This Modcloth a-line skirt is worth a look.

For the accessories, I chose these Argento Vivo drops that I’ve shown before.  If you’re looking for a simple earring that still has impact, these are them.

These Sarah Flint shoes are a great addition to a professional wardrobe.  They’re very chic and comfortable.  These Kate Spades, however, are about half the price.

This bag from Kate Spade Margaux bag keeps popping onto my radar.  It’s currently 40% off, so now might be a good time to snap it up.  It comes in several neutral colors.

For the makeup, I chose a different berry-hued lipstick.  This is Amazing Amal from Charlotte Tilbury and it so very beautiful on.  A great raspberry color.
