It may not quite be fall in San Francisco, but we have been talking about Fall Fashion and what to wear to work for the last month at the Canvas office. I've been excited about this post and have been waiting to share it for a while. Not only because I love Fall dressing, but also because this blue leather moto jacket is currently my favorite wardrobe piece.
Dressing for the Changing Seasons
Early fall is a tricky time to dress in San Francisco. While our East Coast friends are watching the leaves change and the temps drop, things are starting to heat up in San Francisco. This time of year Kimberly and I both love to mix our summer staples with fresh fall pieces. It is an easy way to transition our wardrobes into the new season.
What to Wear to Work This Fall
Since most of us spend more time at work than anywhere else, we want to feel on-trend while still being professional. The key is to mix in your trend-forward pieces with work staples in order to give them some new life. This year, instead of reaching for your typical work blazer, incorporate a cropped jacket with color or texture into your Fall work wardrobe.
Dare to Be Bold
Bright saturated colors (especially red and blue) are very popular right now in leather and suede motorcycle jackets. To tone down my bright blue moto, I paired it with one of my fave skirts from spring/summer. The edginess of the leather jacket with its metal accents plays well with the soft lace crochet of the skirt. If I get warm (which I do running around all day) I can take off the jacket to reveal a crisp white ruffle t-shirt underneath. Then when it cools down at night the moto can come back on for a bold evening look.
Stay tuned... over the next few weeks we will be taking more of Fall's hottest trends and showing you how to make them your own.
