Fall Fashion: Perfect Pairings

Sydne Style Downy Unstoppables Perfect Pairing Fall outfit ideas

One of my favorite parts about fashion is creating unique pairings. Two unexpected colors, fabrics or styles can blend harmoniously into one chic outfit. For transitioning into Fall, I was inspired by Downy‘s new bottles. Downy Infusions Cashmere Glow has a gorgeous blue bottle while Downy Unstoppables Glow has sleek black and gold. Together, they create White Velvet Ballet: a soft, elegant floral scent. The sweet fragrance inspired these three outfit pairings…

90s grunge is huge for fall. But as you can probably tell from my blog, I have more of a feminine style. So I sweetened the fabrics with this flouncy skirt and plenty of sparkle.

I love combining leopard and lace.  With a muted print, like this velvet clutch, you can even double up on your spots! It’s an easy way to dress up jeans for date night—especially when you add your favorite pumps.

A scarf is a great way to bring your summer dresses into cooler seasons. Layer with a vest and pair of riding boots and you’re good to go for a day of errands! To keep extra cozy, you can wash your scarf with Downy Infusions and Downy Unstoppables. The warm scent adds that additional chic layer of freshness for a fashionable Fall.

    When I don’t want to be too elegant, I love to combine an elegant dress with a scarf. In this way you look chic but not too elegant, so it can be the perfect outfit for many occasions… Good choice!
