While it’s a total bummer to say goodbye to summer, there’s still plenty of reason to celebrate the start of fall… when it comes to trends, that is! Now that the weather is starting to cool down, it’s time to embrace previously taboo textiles like wool – specifically tweed! Cropped tweed trousers may have been totally unwearable during the hotter summer months, but they could easily be your autumn go-to staple for making a chic statement at work that’s still comfortable and effortlessly cool. Pair with some chunky wedge booties for fall or your favorite printed flats, or elongate legs with some pointed toe pumps. These fresh-for-fall styles put a new spin on the traditionally “stuffy” material (so long to stiff jackets and suits!), but when wearing slouchier styles be sure to stay mindful of proportions by pairing with a more tailored or streamlined top to avoid looking sloppy!
