I love, love, love my Rock & Republic Kariana pants! I don’t accept that I have to put them away for the season because of some arbitrary rule about white after Labor Day. Did you pick up a great pair of white jeans or pants at an end of season sale? Not ready to part with them just yet? Well, fret not my fashion loving friend! Here is how to stretch those end of season bargains into Indian Summer and even through most of Fall…
Transitioning summer styles into fall is all about layering and texture. Texture is the autumn’s raison d’être
… or maybe more accurately, it’s crown jewel. It is what makes fall fashion so deliciously rich. Makes you want to snuggle up in it, even as you strut down Park Ave.
Adding layers automatically creates texture.. as texture is all about depth… and layers create depth. Simple! Better yet, choose layers with subtle color differences, like this cream colored leather jacket from 1020 by Nicole
, which feels as good as it looks… Buttery smooth in a shade just dark enough to create depth.
Bring your whites down to earth with touches of warmth from natural stone, rich browns & golds. A cute fall bootie, like this BFT Wales Bootie in Stone, provides the perfect grounding effect and ties in nicely with our stylist’s wide leather belt. No outfit is complete without a touch of sparkle, and the Gilmore necklace with it’s polished gold finish brings just that… balanced perfectly with the rich earth tones of the natural stone pendant in it’s center!

You don’t have give in to arbitrary rules and deadlines. Fashion is fun, but STYLE is all yours!
On the other hand, if you are more of a lover than a fighter, just substitute your favorite jeans of any color. I love this outfit equally well with Fidelity’s fabulous Super Vintage jeans. And as the season progresses, continue your transition with the soft as silk, eco-friendly, fringe infinity scarf, woven with bamboo yarn! See for yourself…
