Silk Blouses for Fall
the style sauce street style fashion blog silk blouse fall fashion 2016

Classic staples like the silk blouse are hardly going anywhere. I have some in my closet that I've had for years that I can still break out from time to time. While you can wear silk almost any time of year, long sleeved silk blouses I usually reserve for the Fall and Winter. There's another reason for this- silk is the perfect decadent pairing to velvet or cashmere, and these fabrics almost always resurface in collections for the cooler months. ESPECIALLY velvet this year guys, it's like the darling of F/W fashion for 2016. Every editor as made it THE "it" thing. While I don't wear something because someone tells me to, ever, I'd have to agree that it goes really well with all of the trends that are big this year. More on that later.

Anyways, back to silk. There are few fabrics I love to wear more than silk. I think silk and cashmere are pretty much just the best things in life and I should probably live in New York where I can wear them more (any excuse to move to New York, ha..... )  That being said, this season I plan on wearing lots of silk, especially by way of tops. Pictured here I'm wearing this beautiful, and actually really affordable lavender silk top with equally beautiful sleeves and detailing from Topshop. I've paired it with black accordion culottes also from Topshop. I topped (no pun intended) the outfit off with my new favorite basics, mules from Roberto Deville, a small French designer with well-made leather goods. Find those here.

Check out the look featured here and let me know what you think. I plan on wearing something like this for the next few months until I can finally wear some heavy jackets and full length pants! Shop some of my favorite silk blouse selections below, as well as this full look. 

Stay saucy.

Don't Panic
Don't Panic! Sweater-  Marc by Marc Jacobs

Don't Panic! Sweater- Marc by Marc Jacobs

Lately there is nothing more I love than a culotte. Even in my post last week for Festival Fashion I was wearing culotte shorts. I mean it's gotten a little out of hand. There's just something so versatile about culottes and I love how they can be dressed up or dressed down and worn for cooler weather or warm weather. For this look I chose black which is obviously the most flattering. I also do love the white and pastel color culottes I've been seeing, although they are definitely harder to pull off- especially for someone who is on the shorter side. I am pretty tall but chose to wear a high platform with these because it gives the pant an extra oomph. I would recommend doing the same for all my shorter sisters out there. There are many different types of shoes that look good with culottes, but in general anything with a platform or with a stacked heel will go great with a pant like this. 

For the rest of the look-- I paired a Marc by Marc Jacobs lunchbox-shaped red crossbody for a pop of color and a little funk (it's holographic!). I have my old favorite Rayban clubmasters on that always seem to make their way back into my sunglass rotation. The cropped sweater that says Don't Panic! is from Marc by Marc Jacobs as well. I love it- everyone just chill out and enjoy this little OOTD ;)

Below is my "Don't Panic" playlist for some good vibes. Rationale- Fast Lane is my absolute favorite song of the week. By popular demand -- I'm going to incorporate music in all my posts now :) You guys can follow my music updates and playlists on Spotify (playlist on main page) and Soundcloud.
