Cardigans are one of my favorite clothing essentials, they can be dressed up or down with dresses, jeans or skirts. Today, I want to show you my favorite type of cardigan or long sweatshirt from Zaful. I already have cardigans in burgundy and black, although I'm looking to expand my colors for fall. My favorite types of cardigans include the longer style, the open front style and the distressed style.

1. Open Front Cardigan

The loose cable knit open front cardigan can be purchased at Zaful and comes in four colors. The open front style is my favorite as it frames your outfit without covering it.

How I Style the Utility Jacket

For the last few years, I have seen the green utility jacket online. I have always admired them and how they were styled, but I never took the initiative to find myself one. This year with my new passion for blogging, I thought it was the right time to finally commit to this fall closet staple. I found this green utility jacket online at Rosegal, they have different types of this women's green jacket

I styled this slim-fit green utility jacket with a white lace tank top and denim jeans. I love the casual style of this look and how trendy it is. I could wear this to my college campus or to a farm for pumpkin picking. Today, I wore this look to a coffee shop and then out for a walk. This lightweight jacket is so comfortable in the cool fall weather and is perfect for the months leading up to winter here.

Best Blazers for Fall | Rosegal

There's many trendy outfits for fall, although, not every one can be worn for work and for a night out. A cold weather essential that is both practical and beautiful are blazers, which can be found at Rosegal. I only have a blazer in black, which is why this fall I was inspired to find stylish and affordable blazers. Specifically styles that can be worn professionally and out for the night. I prefer more simple and neutral looks, as that is my personal style. My top picks for blazers are in the colors white, gray and black, which match nearly everything.

1. White Blazer

This long sleeve crop blazer can be purchased at Rosegal and comes in black and white. I love the cropped look of this blazer and how easy to style it is. The white and black look is very professional and can be elevated with a black dress. In the summer months, I would wear a white blazer with a flowy sundress. Additionally, as a person who is 5'2, the shorter and more cropped styles are more flattering on my shorter torso. If you want to read more about it click here.

2. Gray Blazer

This shawl collar long sleeve blazer can be purchased at Rosegal and only comes in the gray color. Even though I don't prefer a collar, the black lining on the outside of the jacket and the sleeves is so flattering. I love simple details that take an outfit to the next level without being too much. The two buttons and the black lining do just that. I would wear this blazer with jeans to school or with a black dress for a night time look. If you want to read more about it click here.

3. Black Blazer

This ruched tunic blazer can be purchased at Rosegal and comes in black and red. I chose this style because of the beautiful ruched details on the sides of the blazer. The gold zipper and peplum type jacket make this anything but your standard black blazer. This blazer is ideal for both work attire and going out attire. The classy and feminine style of this jacket makes this my favorite blazer out of the three. If you want to read more about it click here

Exploring Vineyards

Once the weather cools down, many New Yorkers head to the wineries and the farms. I love to partake in these fall festivities and enjoy the benefits of different seasons. There's many beautiful vineyards, although this particular one was so friendly and fancy. The environment of the winery was very warm, including family gathering and friends laughing. My boyfriend and I enjoyed sampling several different types of wine and walking through the vineyard with a glass in hand. 

For my vineyard look I wore a burgundy outfit to match the wine and the grapes. I wore a long sleeve body bodycon dress from Express which I purchased last winter. Since this was a chilly day, I wore a long sleeve button down cardigan from Denim & Co, which I got on sale for $33. Isn't that an amazing price for a beautiful and high quality cardigan? I know I'll be wearing this often in the fall and winter time. I paired this look with black sandals, although I probably should have worn boots with all the dirt. Walking through the vast vineyard just feels so fall and reminds me of a movie. 

How I Style Plaid with Dresses

Like other fellow bloggers I love wearing plaid in the fall. The added warmth and style of wearing a plaid shirt make it both practical and fashionable. This style of plaid is a boyfriend fit making it looser and less fitted. I prefer wearing a looser fit top as opposed to a tight fitting style. I bought this boyfriend style plaid shirt from American Eagle. This top was on sale and is very affordable. I know there are higher end plaid shirts, but American Eagle is both affordable and high quality for these type of items. 

In this post I wanted to show how I wear plaid shirts with dresses. This way I can extend wearing my favorite dresses into the colder months while still staying on trend. Plaid shirts can be worn by both men and women, so I wanted to find a more feminine looking plaid. This lead me to choose the pink color with black and white. These shades match dresses, leggings and jeans. Since the shirt is not constricting, I enjoy wearing it in many different ways. I love wrapping it around my waist or tying it at my waist. The versatility of plaid makes it an essential for the colder weather. 

The Plunging Neckline Dress | Zaful

I love wearing dresses all year round, no matter what the season is. Of course, the style and type of dress depends on the time of year, which is why this fall I will be wearing a plunging neckline dress from Zaful. In the colder months when you're wearing longer dresses and longer sleeves, a plunging neckline is a flattering way to accentuate your figure. This style of dress can give you a fun and daring look while staying warm with longer sleeves, a cardigan or tights. If the idea of a plunging neckline seems overwhelming, you could always wear a bralette or tank top underneath.

1. Printed Dress

The printed drawstring plunging neck dress can be purchased at Zaful for $12.49. If you are looking for a bohemian style dress with a slight plunging neckline, this dress is ideal for you. The print of the flowers and the style of this dress make it wearable for many occasions and transitional for all seasons. This dress could be worn with heels for a summer outing or with a cardigan and tights during the winter. Out of all the dresses in this post, this is my favorite with the floral design. I can imagine myself wearing this dress with black over the knee boots. If you want to read more about it click here.

2. Long Sleeve Dress

The high-low plunging neck long sleeve dress can be purchased at Zaful for $17.57. What instantly drew me to this style was the brick-red color of the dress. This color which looks similar to orange could be worn during fall festivities or with denim jeans to class. The long sleeve style makes this warm enough to wear with the colder seasons and versatile for day and night. I love the high-low aspect of the dress as it is so trendy and the longer back allows you to wear this with tights or leggings. You easily style this with what you already have in your closet.

3. Velvet Dress

The velvet a-line dress can be purchased at Zaful for $20.99. This type of dress combines two popular trends, velvet and little black dress. A black dress is an essential piece in every woman's wardrobe, and the plunging neckline aspect gives this piece an edgy look from an otherwise common dress. A plunging neck dress like this is perfect for a night out with the girls or a date night with your significant other. This is definitely a night out type of dress and would pair well with heels or tall boots. If you already have too many black dresses, this dress comes in wine.

Layered Flounced Dress

Summer is not quite over yet even though some of us want it to be. In this Zaful outfit I wanted to dress casual with a light blue layered flounced dress. Dresses and rompers are my favorite looks as they are so simple to style and such a statement on their own. This dress definitely makes a statement with thin spaghetti straps that gently rest on your shoulders and the ruffles that flow softly on your waist. This dress is amazing to wear if you don't want something skin tight and prefer something looser fitting. I love the flowy feel of this dress and how it gracefully moves as I walk in the park. 

I found this beautiful gazebo and thought it was the perfect place to show off this equally perfect dress. The straps on the dress are tied on your shoulders and this keeps the dress on your body. I double knotted the straps to assure that the dress was on my shoulders securely. The ruffles on my waist were the highlight, but my favorite aspect was the triangular top and how flattering it was. This outfit is versatile and can be worn to either an outdoor wedding or a walk in the park. The dress is the perfect length, not too short or too long. For a 5'2 petite girl like myself, that can be difficult to find.

3. Embroidered Skirts

This button up patched floral jean skirt can be purchased at Rosegal for $17.51. The embroidery trend has been really popular over the summer, and I believe it will remain popular in the fall. This makes investing in an embroidered skirt a great choice. Once I saw this skirt I knew I had to get it. First off, I love denim skirts as they will never go out of style. Also, something about the flower pattern on this skirt is so adorable and stylish. The buttons going up the skirt additionally made this a closet staple regardless of the season.
