Damsel in Dior blogger Jacey Duprie has a lot going on. She posts daily on her site styling super wearable looks, recently collaborated on a jewelry line with Gorjana & Griffin, and is a spokesperson for Seven Daughters Wine. As part of the Seven Daughter's 'Add a Splash of Color' campaign, Jacey shared some of her favorite fall dressing tips with us.
And, according to the blogger, fall is her favorite time of year. There a long walks, cosy sweaters, and lots of opportunities to get cozy. "I love to layer, and in fall you can play with scarves, tops, jackets, boots, the possibilites are endless!" she exclaimed to us. But for many of us, trying to piece together a perfectly layered look can be a little difficult. But according to Jacey,"it's all about mixing different prints and patterns in the same colorway."
A scarf is the perfect layering piece: It's a great way to add color, and it keeps you warm. "When layering different prints and patterns, I follow this rule," shared Jacey. "Always layer in the opposite direction. If you want to wear two striped pieces, pair a big stripe with a small stripe. Or, pair stripes with florals or checks—it's always a winning combination!"
"Layer your jewelry the same way you layer your clothes," suggests Jacey. Delicate pieces (like Jacey's Damsel necklace from her collection with Gorjana & Griffin) are easier to layer, as multiple necklaces can be piled on top of each other. "I'm really loving delicate personal pieces at the moment, rather than statement rings or necklaces."
"One of my biggest tips for fall is to transition pieces that you would normally wear in spring, like a dress," says Jacey. Here she pairs a black dress with a striped shirt and black tights underneath. The shirt adds warmth and a contrasting color and pattern to the rest of her outfit.
"I'm obsessed with anything bouclé this fall, and I think that any color in the merlot and burgundy family will be really popular this season," says Jacey. "I also think fall is a great season to make a change to your hair and makeup. I just got back from Paris and was inspired to cut my hair into a really blunt collarbone-grazing bob!"
