Putting together an outfit is not rocket science. Pair one of your trendy tops with a classic pair of jeans and you’ll be ready to go, right? Well, of course not for us, trendy fashionistas! Celebs around the globe and “It Girls” prove to us each day that there is a huge difference between picking clothes and outfits that are truly inspiring and feels unique for you.  

When fall season approaches and knocks the door, it’s hard to say no. From the color palettes, variety of layers, and the classic plaid prints – this fall’s fashion trends will get you in the mood. And, let’s not forget about the season’s favorite: ankle boots.

Our fashion consulting experts came up with a list of do’s and don’ts to guide your wardrobe transition from summer to fall. After assessing the trends found at the fashion weeks around the globe, our experts came up with few tips to help you choose the perfect outfits for the season. Check out the do’s (and don’ts!) of fall 2016 fashion trends:

Do Add Layers

Adding layers to your outfit is not only important to keeping you warm while you travel abroad this fall, but it’s also a great way to look fashionable without trying too hard.

Don’t forget about layer proportions

While adding layers is undoubtedly stylish (and fundamental!), too much layering can make your outfit look disproportionately awkward. Make sure you're looking out for proportions and don't just bulk up with too many fabrics and random garments that do not flatter you.

Do Mix Textures

Mixing different textures like denim, silk, velvet (and everything in between!) can be an easy way to look like a pro without even trying. Pro Tip: layer a blouse under a tailored jacket and pair with peep-toe booties.

Don’t try to hard

However, you still want to make sure that your separates complement each other effortlessly. Otherwise, it might look like you are wearing a costume. Pay close attention to the patterns and color palettes so your outfit looks on point, without looking like you tried too hard.  

Do go for Statement Booties

One of the season’s popular items is, undoubtedly, the pair of booties. Stand out from the crowd by selecting a pair of statement booties with creative patterns and unique textures.

Don’t just stick with basic black

While black booties will never hurt anyone and will definitely be a classic staple, statement booties will help you diversify your wardrobe and look like the trendsetter you are.
