Many people associate Fall fashion with darker and more muted colors, but you all know that I love bright colors and wear them all year round. Just because the weather is cooler doesn’t mean you can’t wear a fun color like bright yellow, it’s all about how you style the outfit and carry yourself. This is actually one of my favorite looks to date, everything came together so nicely and I love all the coordinated details. This off the shoulder yellow sweater from NA-KD has definitely become a staple for me. The knit material is super soft and the off the shoulder cut gives the sweater some edge. So even though it’s a bright yellow, the sweater is still chic and sophisticated. I layered a plaid coat over my shoulders for that effortless editor style and to add some dimension to this outfit. This coat is from Alice’s Pig and is warm and stylish at the same time, and of course the vintage-inspired shape drew me in.

For a clean touch, I paired the sweater with white jeans and shiny purple boots. I’ve gotten so many compliments and questions about these boots! They are also from NA-KD and are actually padded on the inside for warmth and comfort. I’m pretty obsessed with the pointy toed shape and perfect height, and they also come in Black, Dark Blue, and Bright Pink. Now as you all know I love my coordinated details, so I couldn’t help choosing yellow submarine Happy Socks and my yellow Luana Italy handbag to match the sweater. For an extra cozy touch, I also added a white LOVE beanie from Betsey Johnson. Lastly, I completed the look with sparkly hoop earrings that perfectly complement the off the shoulder cut of the sweater, and a black leather watch.

    The yellow sweater looks great on you!… but the yellow tones don’t go well with my skin color. Although, I love the boots, the combination is just perfect!

    Adore how you styled this look! Pretty!

  11. This whole outfit is awesome. That yellow sweater is really great. I don’t particularly like the socks though. They kind of take away from those cute boots to me. (My opinion though.)
