Is it really November?? We can’t tell over here in Los Angeles because we are experiencing a crazy peak in temps… it was over 90 degrees yesterday and we are smokin! So in honor of the heat wave, we brought out our summer fave, this off-the-shoulder top, to show you that you can still rock it even in the fall.
One of the reasons why this piece still works is this amazing shade of red. Whatever the season, it remains a constant neutral and we love its versatility. We found a matching lipstick from Bite and made it pop! (It is seriously a must-have for your collection).
The wine colored red also happens to be a popular choice in stores right now. I found the hat from Zara and the adorable tie up heels are from Aldo. The Zara hat has a velvet band, which screams of fall time goodness…so I matched that up with a black velvet choker to tie the look together. I love to layer so I added an extra necklace with a crescent moon for a touch of silver to match my bracelets and earrings. Honestly, there really are no rules when it comes to jewelry because this red is the perfect neutral backdrop to your pieces. Mix and match metals- the options are endless!
The heels themselves are actually on sale at Aldo right now for $69 and comes in black as well. The tie front detail and suede material makes it look luxurious without spending a fortune–totally speaks our language!
In terms of properly layering, we found the easiest, lightest, and warmest scarf from Madewell. When it comes to LA weather we know it’ll be scorching in the midday but by nighttime it will be surprisingly chilly so you need to keep certain pieces with you for the transition. This black patterned scarf actually has built in leather trimmed armholes for you, so you can throw it over yourself like a vest and it turns into a chic shawl.
Overall you can’t go wrong with these fall pieces and we know you’ll be able to add your personal touch to it. And for you east coasters who are actually experiencing the appropriate weather for the holiday season you can replace this top with a sweater and you’re on your way!!
