Hey hey everybod-ay! I hope you’ve all had a fabulous weekend and are feeling well rested with that extra hour of sleep you got last night. 😉 I feel like the end of Daylight Savings Time should basically be a holiday because I genuinely always get excited about the extra hour of sleep, hahah! Anyways, I started the weekend off at an influencer party at The Geisha House in Philly! It was my first time ever visiting The Geisha House (I had been wanting to go for a while!) and it was such a pretty boutique! And of course it was wonderful to see some blogger friends, meet new ones, and do some networking! 🙂

I’ve been having fun playing around with lighter tones some this fall so I thought today I would share how I go about styling light fall neutrals. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll always love my deep earth tones during fall, but it can be fun to shake it up from time to time. But wearing lighter colors in the fall can be more challenging than in the summer. In the summer, it’s totally okay to just wear a simple white sundress, but light fall neutrals require a little more work since it’s a season full of colors, layers, and textures. My three biggest tips for styling light fall neutrals are to make them cozy, layer up, and add dimension.
Make it Look Cozy
This was my main method for the look I’m sharing with you today. I started with this really pretty stone colored sweater from Joyfolie as my focal point. This sweater is super comfy, super versatile, and super chic! It’s hard to tell in the photos, but it has a super subtle shimmer to it which will be perfect for the holidays. Any who, since the jeans and sweater together were a bit monotoned and lifeless, I added a fluffy white scarf and matching beret to make the outfit cozier but still keep it nice and light!
I wanted to play on cooler tones with this outfit so I carried a simple taupe clutch, wore a pair of taupe booties, and went with silver accessories. I don’t usually wear statement earrings with a hat because it can sometimes be overwhelming, but these just seemed to add so much to the outfit, especially with the shimmer in the sweater. Even though it’s still very much fall, I feel like this sweater and earring combo could be a winner come shimmery Christmas and New Year outfit time. 😉
Another tip for styling light fall neutrals is to layer. Layering can make it really simple to go for an entirely all white outfit but still be totally fall appropriate. You could do anything from wear a darker colored cardigan or jacket (like I did here) to throwing on a bold scarf. Just make sure you layer in a way that will offset too many light tones. 🙂
My last tip for styling light fall neutrals is to give your outfit some dimension by color blocking. What I mean by this is make sure your neutrals are different enough that it’s clear you’re not in a jumpsuit but, in fact, are in pants and a top. 😛 For instance, if you want to wear a pair of white jeans, wear them with a light tan sweater instead of a white sweater. Your shoes, bag, and other accessories are another great way to add dimension with slightly varying colors.
Do you guys ever like to wear lighter tones in the fall too? If so, did you find these tips for styling light fall neutrals helpful at all? As always, let me know if there is anything I can help you guys with! 🙂 Hope you enjoyed today’s post and I’ll see you next time.
