Temperatures have slowly but surely been dipping overnight around here…I’m in denial that summer is soon over, but on the plus side am excited to dust off my beloved outerwear collection. Glamour asked me to share my fall street style as part of their Street Glam Instagram contest – you can participate by uploading a photo of your own fall style using the hashtags #streetglam #contestentry (prizes include 25 goodie-filled totes, and a $2,000 shopping spree & trip to NYC!).
This outfit is a mix of old and new, starting with a comfy tee dress that's been a great foundation piece throughout the seasons. To transition into cooler weather, I'd throw on a casual chambray layer plus neutral trench if it's really chilly. Compared to the traditional longer trench with belted waistline which I love, this shorter style has a more playful, cape-like flare.
In my search for a short trench to update my fall wardrobe, I tried on both an option from Ann Taylor as well as this one from Banana Republic’s Heritage line. The Ann Taylor one is available in petite and fit pretty well, and would've required some sleeve length and width alterations which is my usual trouble spot with jackets. However I really liked the warmer caramel color, the swing vs. fitted silhouette, plus the classic trench details of the BR one. I did get more substantive professional alterations to convert it from regular to petite sizing, which I can do a detailed post on soon.
