FALL STYLE GUIDE: Draped Dresses & Deep Purple

A draped day dress takes your look in a new direction for fall. The ruching & draping of these garments makes them unbelievably flattering on every figure :)

Dress (Primark), belt (H&M)
Purse (F21), Booties (H&M)
Dress (H&M), Belt (etsy)
Booties (H&M), Bag (LV Speedy)
Dress (UO), Belt (ebay)
Heels (River island), Purse (F21)
***The 'NOW' variation of each outfit is as shown.  For a 'LATER' look, just add tights & boots :)

Although we shouldn't completely deem gem tones as outcasts, the ring leader of the tonal trend on the runways was deep purple and similar shades of plum.

NOW: Cardi (J.Crew), silk tank (Aritzia), mock denim skirt (F21)
Purse (F21), Heels (River Island)
LATER: tan tee (H&M), belt (ebay), jeans (UO)
Bag (Asos), booties (H&M)
DVF dress (Shopbop.com) incorporates both trends :)
Since my outfit of the day is anything but glamorous (sleep deprivation will do that), I decided to leave you with a photo of some items that arrived in the mail yesterday from River Island.  I am well aware (and saddened) that River Island does not ship to the US or Canada, so I had a little help from an old friend-THANKS SO MUCH HAYLEY :)
