I had a fantastic summer but I'm equally excited that fall has arrived. Maybe it's because Halloween (my favourite holiday!) is around the corner and the PSL (with soy, please) is back!
Fall also gives me the perfect excuse to cozy up with layers... creating multiple new outfits or, as I always tell people, I get to wear my favourite things together all at once!
Incorporating layers into your fall fashion routine may sound time-consuming and oh so expensive but it doesn't have to be.
Just follow my 4 #FallLooksForLess tips...
1) Don't put away all your summer clothes just yet!
T-shirts, tanks and crop tops (especially those with cool graphics and bold prints) go great under jackets or knits, and adds that additional base layer as the temperature dips.
Sweaters and the George cowl neck button wrap cardigan I’m wearing here are just $25-30 at Walmart!
2) When in doubt, accessorize!
I especially adore this George grey and black mosaic blanket scarf that I scored at Walmart. Not only did it cost $16 but it can be worn in so many different ways - as a huge scarf, draped across the shoulders like a poncho or just hang it from your neck and belt it. This brings any bland outfit to life!
3) Keep it light and tight on the bottom.
A common outfit you will see me in is a collar or flannel shirt over a v-neck tee and then a field jacket thrown on top.
I tend to live in skinny jeans (or jeggings) and classic black leggings in the fall. These staple pieces easily flatter any outfit and won't compete for attention with your pretty layers. Pair the jeans with crisp white sneakers but wear your black leggings with black booties or flats as other coloured shoes will breakup and shorten the look.
You can pick up George short/long sleeve tees in all colours imaginable for $9-10!
4) Sweater dresses are your new best friend.
Sweater dresses are the best! Especially for moms like me. This navy and grey striped one was $24 at Walmart and is so fun and versatile to wear. You instantly look glam even if you are chasing around a toddler with drool over your shoulder! For cooler weather, layer it under a jean or leather jacket, combine a belt with riding boots and you are ready for the office, date night or weekend brunch with your girl squad!
With the endless selection of affordable George fall apparel at Walmart you can take your favourite jeans, long-sleeved tee and add this season’s knit sweater for the complete look. Head to your nearest Walmart and start shopping, and don’t forget to share your #FallLooksForLess style!
