Fall Layers and Zara Editorials

fall layers

Has anyone else noticed all the fall layers lately? Dresses are being worn over pants. Entire outfits are layered with a kimono. Textures and prints are also contributing to the layers. For sometimes I like to just go to Zara.com and look at all their editorials. Then satiated with tons of stylish inspiration, I try to emulate what I just saw. “Lights Galore” was a beautiful editorial filled with tons of haphazard fall layers. I tried to resemble “Lights Galore” in my outfit: chenille sweater over a floral dress over a DIY of two tone jeans. Then I added some sparkles for good measure with a velvet sash belt, ornate beaded bag, and glitter blush booties. I’m not sure if I pulled off the fall layers, but it was very fun to try.

    Just look at those beautiful eyes you have Annie!!! That last shot of you is very special.
    I’m going to check out the Zara site where you gathered inspiration for this post.
    I love the sweater over the dress and the pretty velvet sash. Although I can’t see all of the boots they are a cool metallic (rose gold?) vibe. BUT, I’m just not feeling the wide leg jeans beneath the skirt…
    Hey, I remember wearing pants under a skirt to keep my legs warm for the walk to school. It was pretty much a functional trend in the mid 60’s when you could NOT wear pants to school. In a northern Minnesota winter, walking a mile to school in a mini-skirt was idiocy without this early “layering” adaptation.
    I LOVE the look of leggings under a skirt (short or long) but for me only a super thin model can make an actual pant work well.

    • Thank you. I look like my mum in that last pic. Lately, I seem to see a lot of her in myself!

      I think you’re right. This outfit didn’t feel right. I think the pants were too full. That must be it. Skinny jeans would have probably been better. Or even a tight straight leg. Maybe I’ll try it again. The skirt is actually a dress–that I’ve been thinking of getting rid of. I always feel so weird in long lengths. Funny huh. Take a look at it here. What do you think? Should I keep it or get rid of it? I guess it doesn’t hurt to have at least one long dress in my wardrobe!

      I have a pair of leggings that I got rid of when I moved from Beijing to Hong Kong. Oh, I wish I still had them. They were black ruched leggings all the way down. I want them back so bad! Here’s to another fashion fixation!

        How the heck did I miss this post??? DON’T GET RID OF THIS DRESS!!! It looks great on you Ann!!!
        Yup, it’s funny that you don’t like long dresses. Geez, this one even has the cold shoulder cool factor! I like it with the big ol comfy turtleneck a lot! Have you tried it with a taller boot? High top sneakers? I think either one combined with the t-neck would be cool.
        Sorry about the ruched legging loss… I do know that feeling.

  • Love the last shot too, very pretty! The blue is the perfect color on you with your sweater and i am loving the skirt. I am a bit of a ZARA fanatic myself.. always checking! I love the pattern and layers , very creative!
    Thanks for linking!

    • My pleasure Jess. I saved some for next Tuesday too–this week is Leopard Week on Kremb de la Kremb! I have a feeling you embrace leopard in classic ways.

      And yes to Zara inspo!!
