A FnF reader, Odessa, wrote in to my FnF fashion team for fall fashion outfit ideas. She's from the Philippennes (a big shout out to my Filipino readers!), and will be visiting the States for a few months. Here's what she said:
We only have dry and rain season here, so any time of the year I can just wear a dress or even a tank top without worrying much about the weather. So my dilemma is: What IS it I'm supposed to wear for the fall season? I need advice on specific pieces that will look casual but cute. I really like wearing dresses most of the time, so how can I can still wear them in cooler weather? I also want to learn the art of layering clothing!
Liza's take on layering: Here's layering at it's finest from the Fall/Winter Dsquared show. It's a little over-the-top, but great for inspiration! Wearing layers not only keeps you warm, but it can be super chic, too!
Button-down shirts are perfect for layering, especially light ones like this shirt from J.Crew. I want this outfit!
Another must-have on Jenn's list: Skinny jeans. These go with everything, and can be dressed up or down. Pair with a tee and cardigan, button-down shirt, oversized sweater or a summer camisole. Switch it up from playful to sexy just by changing from flats to heels!
Alexa Chung always gets it right.
I love this model's look! So cool.
So there you have it, Odessa—hope this helps you with your fashion dilemma! (Btw, Tiff apologizes for not participating on this post, but she's busy dressing The All American Rejects for the VMAs this week. Yeah, just another day in the life. I'm so jealous ;))
