A Style Guide for Navigating Any Upcoming Occasion

Richard Wright

We all do it--stare aimlessly into our closet (stuffed to the brim with clothes) and think to ourselves, Well, I have absolutely nothing to wear. Highly unlikely, but it’s our reality.

Thankfully, there’s an easy fix and it starts by equipping yourself with a few clever outfit ideas. We’ve teamed up to bring you styling tricks for four different events on your fall calendar, from a work promotion (you know it will happen any day now) to an afternoon potluck with the family.

Finally answering the age-old question, “What do I wear?”

Take a look and plan your schedule accordingly.

Long gone are the days of school pictures, but just as tricky is the first day on the job. Whether you’re starting a new gig or you just got that big promotion, we love the idea of playing with proportion. This season try a long tunic worn over a pair of cropped pants and topped with a lightweight jacket. Finish it off with strappy heels now, and then switch to booties later in the season.


Chico s  2


It’s no longer warm enough for tank tops, but it’s not exactly time to bust out the car coat. Find a happy medium in the pullover knit sweater. To style, simply don a pair of on-trend bootcut jeans and ankle booties. It’s that easy.


A Night Out


An evening on the town always calls for a little something extra. This season, fringe is that little something. Make a subtle statement by sporting a tassel on your handbag or go for a big impact with this faux-suede fringe dress. Hope you like attention.


Family Gathering


Chances are your family gatherings usually involve lots of food and lots of lounging. For an outfit that works double-duty, try a cozy turtleneck worn over your comfiest pants. Top with a plush cardigan and prepare yourself for plenty of compliments from your sister-in-law.
