The only satisfaction I receive from the fall weather is change of fashion: hues melt into darker silhouettes, textures are heavier and more fitted, sweaters are a staple, and my favorite, admittedly, is the OTK boot. It’s the only thing I don’t mind saying I actually like to wear.
I fell in love with these pants from THEORY because they are fitted, and can accommodate an OTK boot very easily, and dark enough they don’t make my short legs any shorter. The fall mesh of black and gray is not so heavily opaque, and accommodates a bright top very easily. The only caveat with anything from THEORY that has stretch, and these leggings are all about stretch and fit, is you may need to go up a size. They also tend to be a little short waisted, so someone like me who has hips and a—may need a little more material.
You know Free People is my fashion kryptonite! I love this top, paired with a “funky” lace bra or bralette. With my boobs, I always need support, so although I’m not a huge Angel fan when it comes to every day braziers (lol) I love these bras for that show it off open back. They have underwire and a front closure for support. Not a daily staple, but it makes an open back so inviting.
I would do a black or even gray OTK boot to compliment this pair. I tend to like a stretch boot which gives me a leaner line, and a sexy hug, but if you are endowed with skinny thighs, you can do a slouchier look.
Fall sucks, but shopping doesn’t.
