While you’re all still wearing summer clothes (because, duh, it’s summer!) the fashion world is already churning out pre-fall styles.
I had some fun peeping the upcoming trends during my shift at Maurices recently. Here’s what you’ll be wearing soon!
“Pre-fall” is pretty much what it sounds. They are colors and patterns that you’d wear in autumn but in cuts that you can get away with right now.
Out of all three collections on the floor, I’m digging “Paradise Breeze” the most because it’s full of bright orange-y pieces and animal print. There’s even some light pinks thrown in, if that’s more your thing.
All Dressed Up
Based on that, my top picks to take into my dressing room should be no surprise. Just take a look!
Orange, leopard, and denim – oh my!
One of the best parts of my job is getting to actually try clothes on as soon as they hit the floor. As stylists, we’re actually encouraged to do it so we can get first hand experience with the garments and better understand how they fit on a real live body.
So here’s what I tried on as well as what I thought!
Super High Rise Jeggings and Smocked Top – I was just talking about my search for high waisted jeans in my June thrift haul video and then we got this style in! As a girl with a long torso, I can attest that these really do hit my natural waist and are comfortable to boot as they’re made just like our jeggings.
This orange smocked top perfectly compliments these jeggings, too. It’s a shorter top that sort of plays on the peplum trend with an elastic waistband. I’m obsessed with the bold color!
Cheetah Tank, Duster Cardigan, Rust Jeggings, Taupe Booties – Rather than just try clothes on, I decided to style them a little. Leopard print is a neutral so it was easy to pair with all these other fab pieces. I felt very chic!
This would be such a great look for participating in outdoor fall activities. I’ll be waiting for my invite!
Tie Front Top, Floral Kimono – This wouldn’t be a true Hannah Rupp fashion post if there wasn’t a kimono. I love the floral print on this navy one. It has so many colors that it’s a dream to style. You could wear it with almost anything!
For the curious, the knot on this top is actually functional. You can make it tighter or looser depending on your preference – or whatever you ate that day. 😉
Animal Print Dress, Cropped Denim Jacket, Floral Dress – I tried both of these dresses on a whim and I was not disappointed. This animal print one is halter style so I felt best adding a cropped denim jacket over the top. I think it made it look cuter!
And this floral dress was pretty ‘meh’ on the hanger but improved once it was on my body. It could still have been better so my co-worker, Angie, had the brilliant idea of adding a belt… but we didn’t have any. So she MacGuyver’ed one out of a purse strap. Stylists are truly superheros.
Tie Front Shirt, Scoop Neck Pullover – Surprise! This tie front shirt comes in a variety of colors and patterns to suit your style. This is the same one as before except I sized down which I felt fit me much better.
This bell sleeve top… I’m obsessed. No critiques at all! * adds to cart immediately *
