Writer gives fall fashion advice

Despite the hot weather in Florence, fall is here and cold will soon be upon us. With the change in seasons, it is time to change our wardrobes.

Jackets: Pair a collarless jacket with jeans, nude high heels, a clutch and take-out coffee. Voilà. You are officially Andrea in “The Devil Wears Prada.”

On the other hand, motorcycle jackets awaken your masculine instinct and inner self. A black leather jacket, a white see-through shirt, black skinny pants and sunglasses give the appearance of an energetic, sexy rocker.

Cardigan: The cardigan is a must-have fall item. Many ladies wear it because it matches well with any jeans or skirts. A fluttering flower dress with a white or wine cardigan and loafers gives off a shy and quiet appearance. If you want to show a more chic style, wear boots, skinny jeans and a thin cardigan that comes down to the thigh.

Stockings: Whether you wear stockings for cold weather or the trend, enjoy the matching possibilities this fall. Black, mesh, torn, pattern or garter stockings can be used in a variety of outfits.

Kitten heels: As for shoes, the “kitten heel” has a low heel of 3-5 centimeters. It is prettier and livelier than flats, while being more comfortable than high heels. Slip-ons and sneakers are fashionable year-round for men and women of all ages.

Trench Coats: Created by the British Army in World War I, the trench coat is a staple trend, appearing on the runway every fall. It fits nicely with all clothes. Try a striped T-shirt, blue denim jeans, and sneakers or loafers to complete a casual style. If you are feeling trendy, fit a sweater and a chino pant of various colors.
