What We Wear In September
As my last blog would have it, it's heatwave time! I'm sweating balls right now, so my pre-fall 2016 outfit consists of, you guessed it, shorts and a tank.
The bodysuit trend is actually very popular right now, so it works well as part of my pre-fall 2016 look. The only complaint I have is that in the heat, it's really warm with all these layers!
The low back on these bodysuits really helps bear the heat. At the same time the look is a bit more polished and together.
A favourite thing of mine in the heat is wearing a button down shirt as jacket. A simple silk button down like this Milly top is all you need in the summer, and it's a must have for your pre-fall 2016 wardrobe.
This Free People silk tunic is also a great summertime jacket!
Finally, the shorts -- probably the simplest and easiest thing to wear in the summer, or in this case, pre-fall. In Los Angeles these are a must pretty much year around. And in our super casual culture, pre-fall 2016 would not be complete without them.
Shoes and Accessories
As you may already know about me, I like to make every casual look more structured and sophisticated, and every structured look more relaxed.
THE number one pre-fall 2016 shoe is the mule flat. Mine were inspired by these Alberta Ferretti mules (here in black). These shoes, or any of the other structured flats make this cutoff denim outfit look perfectly chic.
I bought this backpack from Zara and in true Zara form they have ripped this design off from Akris (or so I like to tell myself). The triangle bag form Akris is a classic, and I love the architecturally inspired design.
Backpacks were another big trend this season and I believe will continue to be in pre-fall 2016 and beyond.
Hope you're all taking it easy, and getting ready for pre-fall 2016!!
