Labor Day has arrived and Summer is pretty much over but that’s okay because here comes FALL FASHION! Here are 5 of my favorite trends for this season. Check them out below, with tips on how to wear them and let me know what you think.
60s Lady Like: The Mad Men affect is still going strong so get fabulous, get lady like and have a ball. Go for full skirts and fitted tops, high-waist trousers and cardigans with accents of faux fur. Wear these looks with pumps that have a thicker, sturdy heel or pretty flats.
Socks and Shoes: I love this look! Though I will admit its not for everyone. If you can pull it off, go for it. Make sure the sock color compliments the boot or strappy sandal. This is a great way to expand your shoe inventory for Fall. You won’t have to put away all those open-toed shoes just yet…simply add a sock.
Leather and Lace: Go for pretty, go for edge or go for both at the same time! Have fun with leather and lace but stick to neutral colors like black and cream. Please don’t seek out red leather or pink lace…leave that for the ladies of the night. When wearing cream lace go for a chunky wedge or bootie boot in black to tone down the girly factor. On the flip side, when rocking black leather, try girly accents like a frilly top.
Buttoned Up Button Down: I like to call this “Nerdy Chic.” The days of over-sized boyfriend button-downs are over (for now), the newest trend is a sleek fit button down, buttoned all the way up! If your bra size is bigger than a C cup I would probably stay away from this trend. Covering up the cleavage to that extent may make you look top heavy. Another tip: because of the boyish nature of this trend, girl it up in every other way: hair down, red lip, fitted pants or short shorts to compliment.
Aviator and Military Fashions: The military trend just won’t go away but that’s okay, it looks fabulous on everyone and I’m a big fan. This season there’s an aviator influence on the military front. Think Amelia Earhart meets couture. Structured jackets and coats are the way to go, in army green and my new favorite color navy (such a great alternative to black). Faux fur and brown leather accents make this look complete.
