I’ve recently put a lot of effort into attempting to figure out what my perfect autumn colors are and I’m beginning to think that they’re a cross between muted purples and deep reds. I honestly can’t tell the difference between burgundy and oxblood, but whatever these tights happen to be, they are so on point. They’re great for fall and more than likely will make their way into a Thanksgiving outfit with a deepness that resembles all of my family’s favorite holiday drinks. The fact that they do have a bit of that red tone to them, also means that they can transition well into winter and will more than like look lovely with white when I attempt to channel my winter angel aesthetic. Plus, they make any outfit at least 5% more rad! 😉
Fun fact: I got dressed in the dark this morning and getting dressed in the dark is a perfectly good excuse for rocking a black and white outfit. To be honest, the dramatic air of the color combo doesn’t really need any specific reason to be integrated into anyone’s attire beyond the fact that it always looks cool, but it’s especially great when you’re having one of those mornings. I decided to mix things up a bit in the outfit by pairing it with my new favorite beanie from Forever 21 for a little bit of extra warmth. Thus, my fall aesthetic is on and going stronger than ever.
I actually generally refer to this sweater as more of an early spring piece than a fall one because it is so incredibly bright and the sleeves don’t reach my hands. That being said, this is one of my favorite sweaters (and one of the few sweaters I actually brought to college with me) because it still can work during the transition into colder weather and adds a little bit of joy to an outfit. I’m also currently loving my new tights from Forever 21 and always look for an excuse to wear them. They’re a nice burgundy/oxblood color and are perfect for creating an overall fall and winter aesthetic. Just get me a nice cup of cocoa and maybe a pair of mittens and I’d say that this outfit would look cool enough to give the weather outside a run for its money.
I’ve taken quite a liking to Forever 21’s nail polishes in Gold Confetti (the one I’m wearing in the photo) and Moody Purple!
