Fall Trends To Try (Before Winter Takes Over)

Fall is beloved.  We pine for it, plan for it, shop and blog for it.  It can also allow us a wider margin of options within our modest closets, and for that we are grateful.  Yet somehow in our haze of crunching leaves, crisp air, and our favorite knit, we tend to forget that too soon after Autumn comes Winter.  The trends remain, but the large (albeit fabulous) coat thrown over can slightly obscure our efforts at achieving sartorial freedom.  So while the chill is still tolerable, now is the time to indulge in the best of the Fall fashion we’ve been coveting.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve worn a few of my favorite trends of the season, including stark white shirtdresses, fall florals paired with paper-thin turtlenecks, monochromatic chunky sweater and leather skirt combo worn with suede boots for texture, and matching printed separates.

Liminal Leather

When I wore these outfits I felt somewhat confident I was portraying Spring/Summer ensembles. Loading them onto my laptop made me feel like they may belong to a cooler season, and should be worn in the Fall and Winter. Which can only mean one thing: Leather is one of those things that ultimately exists without the encumbrance of season. It can be successfully executed in any weather, any time of year. Some may drop it during the warmer months, but the almost incongruous feel it lends to Summer makes me want to wear it even more. An appropriate shoe helps ground this look and bring it back to your respective season. So swap the knits on top for something lighter, or wear this skin in a color, and it can look completely contemporary even when the temperature rises.

At The Ankle

We have all grown to know and love the midi length in our lives.  It is obsessively hunted, purchased, worn, and posted the world over, and it seems to be the sartorial staple of the year.  But it may need to move its fabulous self over a tad to make room for the new new length: the ankle length.  If you thought it couldn’t get any chicer, think again.  Ankle length skirts are resurfacing and they are fresher than ever, in the form of ball gown skirts, pleats, and dresses.  The perfect necessary space for showcasing the shoes, ankle grazing skirts and dresses are ladylike, yet maintain their cool factor and remain current.  And while I can’t say I’ve moved on from the midi just yet, I can’t help but indulge in this trend right now.

Mad For Plaid (And Denim)

Human Beings are interesting creatures.  We are constantly in pursuit of that which we do not have.  Rarely aware of the Here and Now, we tend to perpetually look forward and yearn for what lies ahead, instead of appreciating and savoring the present moment.  If it is Summer, we detest the heat and long for the days when we can pull our parkas out of storage and skip down the street in boots and tights.  The same thing goes for Winter, as we wait every day for a rise in temperature so we can shed our cumbersome layers and finally be free.  Nonetheless, I find myself somewhat frantic over the fact that winter is coming to a close, and a significant portion of my cold weather wardrobe has gone unworn, and the same feelings usually arise at the end of the Summer, as Fall approaches.

Ergo, due to my mind being set on the future of fashion and meteorology as of late, I forgot to be in the present, and fully appreciate the chill, and all its sartorial advantages.  It is a constant battle between what I already miss from warm seasons past, and what I know I will miss, come Summertime.  This post contains both concepts:  things missed (denim skirts), and to be missed (utterly oversized and über-plaid statement coats).  A mix of emotions captured in one outfit.

The lack of light may make it hard to see the sweater is a navy knit and I liked the monochromatic palette it created when paired with the dark denim, and blue suede shoes.  When I have to wear a coat, I like to achieve two things: an overall look that includes the coat in its persona as a whole, and the ability for the outfit underneath to stand on its own two feet.  In short I want it to achieve fashionable heights with the coat on, as well as off.

Modestly Modified: Leather Leggings

In every modest girl’s life, there are trends we want to indulge in with the rest of the fashion troops, yet we find ourselves…left out.  Boyfriend jeans, harem pants, and the like, are all outside our reach as far as tznius fashion goes.  But sometimes we can navigate within our statutes and achieve sartorial enlightenment through a simple modification of the trend.  Simply put, find a way to wear the trends we can’t, in a way that we can.

Creativity is one of the greatest assets we have as modest fashion fiends, and it is a necessary means to a fabulous end.  A Modestly Modified post can lend insight and inspiration on how to wear the seemingly elusive styles we crave, with a covered-up twist.

Case in point: Leather Leggings.  I layered two tee shirt dresses for a slouchy look over the leggings and added the pumps to make it date night worthy.
