Fall Accessories

Scarf season is upon us, meaning its time to bust out one of the most versatile and fun accessories for your wardrobe!  With so many ways to tie a scarf, here are just a few of my favorite ways to tie a scarf and adorn yourself this autumn.

Put-together-Images-with-scarves

Taking a basic rectangular scarf, wrap it twice around your neck, and tie a loose knot with the ends, creating an effortlessly chic finish.

To add a bit of pizzazz to your ensemble, and wear your scarf in a non-traditional way, then this look is perfect for you.  Take the two long ends of the scarf and tie in a knot, then drape over your neck.  Add a belt to accentuate your waistline, a great necklace, and you’re all set!

Another great way to add interest to your rectangular scarf is to braid it!  Drape the scarf on your neck, tying a loose knot where you want the braid to begin.  Braid the scarf “backwards” from there, and you’re done!

If you just love infinity scarves, but can’t decide which is your favorite, then layer them!  To create the illusion of a full single scarf, just combine two in a similar color.  If you want to add more color, choose contrasts.  Have fun with it!

Anastasia Crepe

The Anastasia Crepe Shirt is a must-have for all seasons.  This top features line drawings of well-known landmarks to satisfy your inner globetrotter.

Zipper Neckline

If you are looking for a twist on a basic sweater, look no further than this adorable sweater with zippers on the neckline.  Pair with a simple beaded necklace to stay looking chic.

Knit Jumper1

This Knit Jumper Dress is perfect for someone who likes to cover a bit more, while staying stylish. A small beaded necklace is the ideal accent for this dress. Throw some tights on underneath, a sassy pair of black boots, and you’re ready to go!

IMG_3715 and Dress

Another delightful option for fall is a dress.  This style by tribal is perfect for the office or an evening out.  Pair with this metallic jacket for a flawlessly tailored look.

Anouka

A basic two-tone long sleeve is a necessity for winter.  Add this Anouka top to your wardrobe, and you’ll feel effortlessly put together.

BCBGeneration

For footwear, my current obsession is wedge booties, which is a great shoe to wear with tights. There is no better way to get height, style, and practicality than with a pair of wedge booties. BCBGeneration has this sleek, mock-suede bootie, which is just the right fit for winter.

IMG_3733 

For a more rugged option these booties by Bedstu are sure to please!

IMG_3730

If you prefer a flat boot, Bedstu has another stylish option.  Pair with an ombré scarf and fingerless gloves to complete your look.

Mens

For the man in your life, achieve this smart look with a Costal plaid shirt and a cozy Patagonia sweater.  Finish off the look with a suede dress shoe and Buffalo denim.

Expert Advice: Three Jeans for Every Man

DenimDude'sCloset

Scheels Fashion Expert out of Minot, ND, Lucas Havig shares the three jean choices every man can count on to cover all his denim needs.

There are so many different kinds of jeans out there that it gets a little fuzzy when you’re staring at a wall full of denim. There are different fits, cuts, washes, materials, brands, etc… often time we stick with the one pair we’ve had since high school or college until they simply become unwearable. Luckily, there are experts at Scheels who can help to find your new favorite pair of jeans.

Fit is the most important aspect when looking for new jeans. It describes how your jeans are going to fit around your waist and thighs. You can find them in slim, regular/relaxed, and loose. There are more fits, but these are the most common.

Next you’ll need to find your rise. The higher the rise in the jean, the more room you’ll have. And conversely, the lower the rise, the more fitted it will be.

After that, you should find what kind of cut works best for you. The cut is simply the leg opening. For example, if the opening at the bottom of your jeans is the same width as the knee, you’d have a straight cut. The most common are straight, bootcut, and wide. If all else fails, start with a bootcut.

From there, find the type of wash that you feel the most comfortable in. Dark washes can be dressed up or down. Light washes always give a more comfortable look. You can find jeans with unique character like whiskers, tacking, whip stitching, dremmeling, and more. Find what compliments your style.

 

That being said, here are my 3 favorite jeans:

Big Star Pioneer:  The anything, anywhere jean. I’d recommend getting this in a darker wash because you will have such versatility from going to the grocery store to going out for dinner. Dress it up with a button up and blazer or throw on a sweater – it looks good no matter what your agenda. The Pioneer is a regular fit in the thighs with a bootcut and a mid-rise.

Silver Zac:  This is the weekend jean. Get it in a light wash and couple it with your favorite tee or hoody. This jean is great for sporting events, school, or wherever. It’s the feel-good jean that you can have fun in. The Zac has a regular fit in the thigh, straight leg and sits mid-rise.

Buffalo King-X:  It’s all about the x-factor… in this case it’s elastic! That’s right, this jean actually has a built in stretch to it. I’d recommend going down a size because of the elastic, but you’ll get one of the most comfortable pair of jeans you’ll ever have – without having to break it in. The other great thing is that it comes in a slim fit which gives a much more tailored and polished look. The King-X comes in a slim fit, bootcut and has a low rise.

Flexible Fashions for Fall from Soybu

One of the best things about Soybu’s clothing is how versatile it is because it’s designed for the woman on the go. Whether you’re out running errands, meeting a friend for a lunch date, or leaving the yoga studio, Soybu’s line of sportswear has you covered.

sy_fall14_lifestyle_34 One of our favorite items for the Fall 2014 season is the Elana Dress, particularly in the black mélange mini stripe. This dress can be worn alone on warm days, but is lightweight enough to also be paired with leggings and wrap, such as the Carolyn Wrap in the image shown here. Not only is this dress incredibly soft and lightweight, but it has a curved hemline and ruched sleeves, making this dress the perfect combination of comfortable and fashionable. The Elana Dress also has wrinkle resistant, moisture wicking fabric, so you can throw it on over your workout clothes or place it in a gym bag for easy travel. Either way, you won’t sacrifice the quality of the fabric or the shape of the dress making this a fantastic transitional piece for fall.

The Vita Cardigan is another piece we love for Fall 2014 because of its versatility. With a waterfall front opening and a back yoke, one can easily dress this piece up or down, depending on where the day ends up! Layer it over a dress on a cool fall night or slip it on at the gym for a post-workout cooldown; this cardigan’s lightweight, breathable, soft jersey fabric won’t weigh you down or make you too hot. This cardigan is definitely a staple this season!sy_fall14_lifestyle_64

The last piece we wanted to highlight from Soybu’s Fall 2014 collection is the Dianna Infinity Scarf. This scarf can be worn in a number of ways and with almost any casual outfit. Wrapped around your neck twice, the incredibly soft “bliss yarn” fabric adds a touch of comfort to your look without all of the bulk of a wool scarf. Wear it over the Elana Dress for a pop of color or pair it with a jacket on a cool fall day. The Soybu Dianna Infinity Scarf is going to fly off the shelves!

Another great thing about this line is that it pairs perfectly with their line of athletic wear, which really allows you to transition your outfit from workout to casual with ease.
