This post is fashion simplified for the fashion-challenged people. Organize your wardrobe for autumn 2018, based on six main categories, and build outfits by mixing and matching items within these six categories.
- Checks, Plaid and Gingham are the prints to wear, not necessarily together. Just pick one clothing item and wear it with a monochromatic outfit in a solid color, or wear accessories in a particular print with a monochromatic outfit in a solid color.
- Animal Prints in Bold Colors can be worn similar to checks, plaid and gingham.
- Western Inspired Outfits–think cowboys and cowgirls–involve lots of denim, pleather, fake leather, huge belt buckle on belt, cowboy hat, bandanna, cowboy boots, and vests. My western style is basic—mostly denim, flannel plaid shirt, belt with huge oval buckle, denim vest, and bandanna. Someone gave me their cowboy hat in the past. I might actually wear it this season.
- Pleather and Fake Leather because who wants to wear leather anyway…or consider pleather and fake leather in a bold color, maybe red, because being bold in fashion is in style this season. I have a moto pleather vest in sea foam green, which is like pastel green but I still like it. I might wear it with my black sheen legging that has the leather look.
- Monochromatic Red can be very bold, but red is also a neutral color nowadays and it goes with many colors, such as denim, black, white, blue, plaid, checks, gingham, and animal prints. Rustic warm red would also look good with browns.
- 80s fashions include neons, wide shoulders, cargo pants, etc. Just watch some old movies from the 80s to get ideas. I have many items from the 80s because I went to high school and college during the 80s, and that was when I mostly got into fashion.
You can wear many of these trends together, such as western denim with animal prints in bold colors, pleather with animal prints in bold color, monochromatic red outfit with plaid jacket or accessories, and bold 80s items with western denim or pleather clothes.
