Autumn Layered Style with ModCloth

Okay, so this says "Autumn", but let's be real... it's been feeling a whole lot like winter lately.  And with my freezing-cold office environment, that means LAYERS.  All the layers.  Because the one time I didn't, I was sitting at my chair in my down Carhartt puffy coat.  So when ModCloth asked me to put together some ideas for autumn layering, I thought it would be fun to play with their virtual closet!  I only created sets I would actually wear myself.

First off, MUSTARD.  Gosh, it's like my favorite color lately.  I've been wearing brown or black knee-high boots almost every day.  It's kind of equestrian, kind of 1970s Love Story, kind of just my style.

Autumn Layers: Mustard

My next collection still sticks to my mustard/navy/brown palette... but incorporates another of my wardrobe staples, which is a FULL SKIRT.  I've actually been rocking my summer dresses (with petticoats) to work with cardigans and other layers.  It's a great way to get more mileage out of things you wear in warmer weather, as the seasons change!

For a DATE NIGHT look, I went for red...  Autumn to me means a transition to mustard yellows, oranges (which I rarely wear), browns, and reds, the colors of the fall trees.  Red can also take you into the holiday season.  For my look, I went with a classic "Aubrey" combo: dress, blazer, tights, wedges!  The coat keeps you warm between the car and the venue, which I imagined here was a night at the theater.  This is another great way to wear a dress from season to season!  You could even throw a fitted long-sleeve black shirt under this dress to convert it.

What are your favorite pieces for fall layering?
Modcloth has some great sweaters available right now, from cute to Christmas-sweater-party-worthy!

Note:  I did not receive compensation or incentive to participate in this ModCloth style board activity via Polyvore... I just did it because it sounded like fun!  :)
