Fall Is Finally Here! Time to Dig Those Sweaters Out of The Closet!

Fall Is Finally Here! Time to Dig Those Sweaters Out of The Closet!

Sweater: APC Shorts: Seven’s Shoes: Miu Miu

So Fall is officially here! And I’ve already gained at least 5 pounds since Pumpkin Spice lattes made their seasonal debut on the Starbucks menu. And since my sweaters are somewhere buried in the depths of my closet, I’ve had to consciously take in to consideration pieces to invest in. First piece being this uhhmaaazzing A.L.C sweater!

I learned my lesson last winter. Desert winters are SIGNIFICANTLY different than LA winters. So coats from Forever 21 are just no longer an option. Thus, I’ve invested in a full on wool coat by Akris Punto. Can’t wait to debut that later on!

In the mean time I’ve decided knitted sweaters are a must! And believe it or not I’ve been finding a ridiculous amount of good deals on these as of lately. Did you know sweaters are actually sold during the summer? As someone who grew up relatively close enough to the beach, or at least close enough to where an ocean breeze was a deciding factor on exactly how many wardrobe changes I had to carry with me throughout the day, this makes total sense. Light weight sweaters are essential for us coastal gals all year round. However, typically during the summer we see these items come in more vibrant colors. Naturally, a lot of these pieces have been marked down and I love bright colors anyways! While yes, it is important to invest in certain fall staples (still working on some high-waisted black leather shorts) I can’t go the entire season without some happy colorful pieces. It’s not me.

My WILD obsession…

Ashley Tisdale clearly one of Wildfox’s biggest fans

Perhaps you’ve noticed your favorite trend setters sporting some pretty sassy graphic tee’s this past year. Hearts, stars, fun sayings splashed across a tank or cozy sweater. And whom exactly are Ashley Tisdale, Vanessa Hudgens and various others turning to for their fashionable digs? Ummm Wildfox, duh!

In case you have been living under a very dull and boring, black and white rock the past year you have completely missed this trend!  I’ll have to admit I was a little skeptical when I first encountered these tee’s/ sweaters. Really $80 for a t-shirt? You can go to any Forever 21 or H&M and get an equally cute graphic tee for probably no more than $5 or $10. Looking back I can’t believe how incredibly naive I was!

Putting a Wildfox top on is like putting on a cloud, that’s been sprinkled with sugar plumb fairy magic. Yes. It is really that freaking awesome! They are the coziest, cutest top you will ever introduce to your closet. Perhaps one of the most magical things about these must have wardrobe staples is how incredibly flattering they are…on EVERYONE! When I think of sweatshirts I think of work out attire (which can also be cute. Rule number one oh fabulous ones, just because you’re getting grosse does not mean you can’t look cute.) Let’s face it, typically sweatshirts are associated with frumpiness,which these tops are anything but.

Even if paired with a basic pair of denim jeans, I feel as though the quirky edge that is captured in each graphic print plastered across the front of each ensemble is the perfect element to add to one of the most basic articles of clothing. One of my favorite fashionistas who seems to be unofficial representation for the label always seems to pair these super cute blouses with the perfect accessories. Whether it’s a classic Chanel bag, fringed boots, or funky print shorts, she always seems to find the perfect match to complete the outfit.

Oh and FYI, the label also extends beyond graphic tee’s to equally AMAZING dresses, bottoms, jewelry and even sunglasses.

One of the things I love most about these collections is that they encourage the wearer to live up to the label- and that’s to have fun and be wild with fashion.
