When it comes to summer outfits, creating extra interest takes work and creativity because the last thing we want is something that looks great, but isn’t functional. For instance, layers and summer do not mix. However, layers and fall do mix and they mix ever so beautifully! The options are endless from a denim jacket to a cardigan or maybe even an olive utility jacket. I love seeing how many different looks I can create just by swapping out the toppers. That’s partly why I created Outfit Formulas®. It was my way to see how many different looks I could create using a handful of pieces including closet staples and a few trends and translate all that into easy-to-follow formulas.
For this month’s Style Your Budget I pulled a look from the Outfit Formulas® Fall 2021 Capsule Wardrobe. What I love about this look is that it truly has something for everyone. Some may be able to shop this entire look from their closet, which I always recommend first, because it does consist of some excellent closet staples. But if you look closely, this look also represents items that are totally on-trend for fall. Like the rust-colored cardigan, while a cardigan is a closet must-have, rust is a really popular color this fall. And that’s where this post comes in handy. It can help you fill in any of the gaps you may have by providing different options and price points so you can shop where you want and spend what you want. That’s what I call a win-win. Now let’s check out this month’s SYB formula, shall we?
