How To Transition Your Wardrobe Into Fall

Is it ok to wear white jeans after Labour Day? Hell ya! Even though the weather will be getting cooler soon, you can continue to wear some of your favourite summer items. I’ve put together photos for a little inspiration, for how you can style your summer favourites with items you most likely already own in your wardrobe. The last couple of years, fashionistas have been wearing white jeans year round. How to do that without looking inappropriate or out of season? Let the outfits below inspire you. As a general style rule, light colours look best worn on top with darker colours worn on the bottom. That theory is clearly shot here, as each of these outfits manage to break that rule and look amazing. The key is keeping the outfits neutral. Try wearing your white jeans with a loose blazer and oversized sweater with heels for a polished look, a long sweater and over-the-knee boots on the weekend, or style your white jeans with an oversized sweater, wide brim hat and ankle boot.

Fresh, versatile, available in multiple fabrics, lengths and styles, there’s a LWD out there to suit every women.

So I’ve decided to pick my favourite styles to share with you. I also appreciate that BR offers quality goods at reasonable prices that are readily available online.

It was so fabulous in fact, I went back to buy it for myself the very next day! A well fitting black pencil skirt is a basic every women should have as a staple in her wardrobe. It’s always in style, a good separate for coordinating with just about anything and adds a polished look to any outfit. As you can imagine, I am often on the lookout for a good pencil skirt for my clients. This skirt from Banana Republic is high waisted and tapers narrower at the hem, which gives the illusion of a longer leaner silhouette. Who wouldn’t want that? It’s also cut and constructed well with a vented back hem, allowing for unrestricted walking so you get the narrow look without having to hobble.  One of the best features about this pencil skirt besides the great fit is that it’s constructed in a flattering Ponte knit. …
