Layered Looks for Fall 2014

Posted October 18, 2014 by Prairie Wife - 13 comments

When approached us and asked to put together a look for fall to share with our readers I was super excited. After all, here in Wyoming I’ve had my boots and sweaters out for weeks (it’s already snowed twice)! I was especially pleased because is a site that I’ve used for years, so working with them fit perfectly with our Prairie Wife Guarantee. offers “Fashion for Everyone” which to me means quality pieces at affordable prices in a variety of sizes that work for women of all ages. As most of you readers know I am currently pregnant with CowBaby5. So, I picked pieces that will work with my current size and comfort needs, yet still look great after I’ve had the baby. With the constant changes in temperature layering in Fall is a must so, I chose several pieces that can all work together. I came up with over 8 outfit combos using these peices, and I’ll touch on a few of them. Stop by to see their whole collection of fall sweaters and cardigans, you won’t leave empty handed!

Fall Look: Casual

fall casualThis Fall a huge trend is mixing prints, but it’s one that can be a little intimidating. For this look I took two subdued prints (the Western Print Grey Sweater and the Polka Dot Tunic) in neutral colors and put them together for a realistic take on this trend. Skinny Jeans and Boots are still going strong this fall but I added a twist with these fab tie boots. At first I was going to do knee high boots but, these boots add a little bit of feminine uniqueness to the look. The sturdy heel adds height but will still be safe for this preggo mama to wear in the icy parking lots! The jewelry (The Art Deco Earrings and Bohemian Bracelet) gives a nod to the pattern on the sweater but keeps it from being too Southwestern/Cowgirly. I didn’t pick a necklace because the two patterns showing at the neck offer enough interest. For those of you in warmer Fall Climates (like my big sis Texas Two Steppin’), simply take off the sweater and tuck in just the front of the blouse (you have to show off the cool button details on the waist of these skinny jeans).

Fall Look: Dressy

Fall dressyThis look is perfect for the office, date night, or Sunday brunch with the in-laws. The Wine Colored Skirt (a hot color for Fall) adds a punch of Fall color, and with it’s practical (and on trend) length I don’t need to worry about anything showing if I need to bend over and pick up a Cowkid. The cozy Cream Sweater keeps the outfit from being too over the top. I just love the ruffle and zipper detail on these sweet (and a little sexy) booties! The Red Bib Necklace adds a bit of color near your face and the Feminine Earrings add a subtle bit of sparkle. For our warmer climate readers just take the Polka Dot Tunic (from the casual outfit) and tuck it into the Wine Colored Skirt. The rich color of the skirt and the Close Toed Booties will give you that Fall look you crave but, you won’t get too hot!

Mix and Match for More Outfits

  • Add the Jewelry and Cream Sweater from the Dressy Look to the Skinny Jeans and Tie Boots from the Casual Look and your ready to cozy up with your Sweetie and some Hot Cocoa in front of the fire.
  • Take the Booties, Cream Sweater and Jewelry from the Dressy Look and pair them with the Skinny Jeans from our Casual Look. Add a Leather Jacket, curl your hair and put on an extra layer of mascara and you’re ready for date night!
  • Switch out the Polka Dot Tunic for a fun Vintage T-shirt and keep the rest of the Casual Look for a practical but cool errand day outfit.
  • If you love the hipster vibe simply put the Tie Boots and Jewelry from the Casual Look with the Wine Skirt and Cream Sweater from the Dressy Look. Add some thick tights, dark rimmed glasses, and throw your hair up in a perfectly unkempt bun!

    I adore the casual one! And I’m so excited about all of these great opportunities your blog is giving you! How fun!

    1. Prairie Wife says:

      Thanks Erica…I feel like the sweater hasn’t stopped calling my name!

      1. Erica says:

        Just order it already!

  2. Ma says:

    Really like the “dressy” look…especially the booties!

  3. TX2Steppin' says:

    That tie sweater will be in regular rotation in my closet starting in December when the temps drop. I also think it will be my “coat” when I am in the stands at the football game this Friday 😉

    1. Prairie Wife says:

      It will work great as a coat for those in warmer climates!

    Love your picks…layers are a must this time of year, for sure. Pattern mixing is very popular right now. I love it on other people but don’t do much of it myself. Skinny jeans aren’t going anywhere but, thank goodness, waistlines are! Higher rises are on the rise and everyone’s shape will look better for it!!

    I can’t endorse your choice of jewel tones enough! Though NY Fashion Week shows for spring, everyone in attendance was wearing deep, rich color–and there are shades that work for all skin tones.

    And thank you for putting a proper shoe with each outfit. Even though a lot of readers are moms, we are still girls. Tennis shoes are for running and working out–proper shoes are for the rest of life. You just feel better when you look put together–a fashion truth!

    You’re not in Milan or NYC but you are all over this…fabulous job!!

      Can you see me blushing from all your praise?! I am just naturally drawn to richer colors in the fall, it’s nice to know I’m on track. I agree with the higher waists, though I can’t wear them now I look forward to the extra help hiding the “after baby bump”. And well…the shoes are the best part…we can’t leave those out 😉

  5. Nichole says:

    Oooh!!! Love the layers and textures!!! Awesome styling!

    1. Prairie Wife says:

      Thanks! Layers are a great way to add color and warmth to pieces you already have!

  6. Dallas says:

    Love the skirt – I am digging the pencil skirt/graphic-tee/blazer or cardigan look these days, but the shoes kinda escape me (My work-life heels don’t quite go with that look so I’ve been defaulting to tall boots) – love these choices and off to do some retail therapy now 🙂

    1. Prairie Wife says:

      That is such a fun look, and appropriate for all ages…which I love! You can’t go wrong with boots but maybe think about trying an oxford. They have some great feminine ones (great colors like red) and dress up jeans and are cute with dress pants too. Just make sure you have a little angle showing with them!
