A Softer Fall. The Pleated Pants

To my dearest:

Hello! This post is brought to you as an intermission while I finish prepping the materials from NYFW! Don’t worry it’s still going to stay on top of the latest fashion trends! Today, we re going to talk about how to land into a softer Fall. Meaning, soften up the whole Fall look. Cheesy? Maybe. Fashionable? Definitely!


Maybe it’s just me, but I associate Fall with the chance to be more grungy. Why? Because it’s the time of the year where I can bring out all my leather jackets and play with looks. It’s not too hot nor cold so all outfits are so easy to style! Many will associate summer with softer styles and colors. Examples? Wearing whites, florals, and pastel colors. While that’s staying on seasonal trend. It’s also extremely trendy to mix it up!

Mid September in New York is an awkward time of transition between Summer to Fall. The weather is ever changing with temperatures dropping to low 60’s or rising to mid 80’s. An outfit I have planned for this time is… TADA!

Yes. This simple outfit, but oh so good for this time of the year. We are definitely transitioning into Fall, but we still want to embrace the last bits of summer and show some skin. What better way, than a simple crop top? And remember me saying, a softer fall? These blush pleated pants are the way to go! Many associate the color blush and pleats with more Spring and Summery vibes. Yet, bringing it into the Fall is still oh so good and trendy!

The palette mix of black and blush also makes a good balance between soft and the typical “Fall” look. Throwing a pair of slides in also make the whole look all the more effortless. Dress it up with a classic Chanel bag for the heck of it. Or any black bag will do. Gold hardware will spice up everything and be the finishing touch.

    There’s certainly a lot of great layering that comes with fall. These soft pleated pants are really cool though.

    Cute! Not really my style as I prefer more form fitting but they’re stunning none the less!

    Love your look! I agree…Fall is such a fun season to style! Thanks so much for sharing!

    My short legs could never pull those pants off – but they look SO cute on you!! Great outfit.

    As a born and raised New Yorker, Fall was always my favorite season! I totally agree with you about the crazy temperature changes, but what I loved was the freshness of the air this time of year (subways stink a little less lol). Your outfit is really cute and chic, and kudos for taking that picture by RCMH!

    Layering is the key in fall/winter season. This pink pant is gorgeous..I would love to get one for myself. I love your styling too… ๐Ÿ™‚

    These are some fun pants! I’m not sure if I could wear them, but you look fabulous!

    I love softer fall colors! I can be quite girly so I find it harder to wear bold deep colors during fall!

  10. September 19, 2017 / 1:45 PM

    Your outfit totally rocks, babe! I can’t decide whether I like your neck piece more or your sandals or that incredible bag!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. September 19, 2017 / 2:00 PM

    I love the color of those pant.s I don’t think I can pull them off like you can. I’m super curvy and the pleats won’t fall as nicely. ๐Ÿ™

  12. September 19, 2017 / 2:36 PM

    I like this nice casual look. It’s definitely better then jeans everyday.

  13. September 19, 2017 / 5:37 PM

    Fall is a great season to dress for. Okay it may be because you get to layer stuff, every layer you take off leads to a different look.

    I love the color and the looser fit of the pleated pants. This is definitely a great outfit and you wear it well.

  15. September 19, 2017 / 7:26 PM

    I am current obsessed with blush and gold… & I loooove those pants! The necklace from express is perfectly “fall” in my opinion too. It will pair nicely with those leather jackets you spoke of. What a great transition outfit!

  16. September 19, 2017 / 9:47 PM

    the pants are so cute! i get so sick of my clothes near the end of each season i’m always happy to style new things & stay fresh for the new season!

  17. September 20, 2017 / 1:52 AM

    Oh what a great outfit! Fall is a perfect timing for styles. You look so cool!

    It’s spring here in Australia and I need these pants! Just in extra long because I’m 6 foot ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’–

    wow such a great outfit idea

  22. September 20, 2017 / 4:04 PM

    those pants are hot. i love them so much. great look for day to night which is a lot of our lives if you’re living in NYC…from work to happy hour or date…lol.

  23. September 20, 2017 / 5:01 PM

    That is a really good look for you! I am a denim person though.

    It’s crazy that we are heading towards fall although it only kind of feels like that in California. I am surprised we have been getting cooler weather this early. Although cooler means you still hit high 70s here. You do have such a good look with the pleated pants. They look comfortable and yet still give you something that isn’t as snug like you will be wanting in a month or two.

  25. September 20, 2017 / 10:06 PM

    Those pants look so comfortable and something I can wear right now because the weather in Texas is so unpredictable.

    I have noticed the pleat coming back into fashion. Also the high waisted pants are a thing again!

    • September 23, 2017 / 2:01 AM

      Yes most definitely! And they’re here to stay for a while!

  27. September 21, 2017 / 1:14 PM

    Perfect timing! I’ve been searching for fall outfits. Love the touch of pink!

  28. September 23, 2017 / 1:11 PM

    I love this look. You look gorgeous with that outfit. The pants looks comfortable and refreshing.
