Fall time fashion

Leave a comment

So sadly summer time has official come to a close. But the bright side is that fashions favorite time of year is here….FALL!! Personally this is my all time favorite time for my wardrobe; you can layer, mix textures, and wear boots!! So what does #fall2016 hold for us this year?

Suede of course– This ultra plush texture is here to stay for the long haul taking us straight through winter. Suede jackets, boots, and skirts are all must haves for this season. A suede jacket may be a bit of a splurge but well worth it as an investment piece, you will be happy you did!!

Embroidery– this beautiful trend is fun, romantic, and oh so lady like! Grab an embroidered jacket, a fab pair of booties, or a handbag with an amazing pattern to take you through fall! It is a perfect addition in a taking that outfit to the next lady like level.

Bomber jackets– Yes they have made a return from the 90’s and are back in a big way! This jacket trend is bigger and better than ever. With fun floral patterns, deep colors, and rich textures. I love this trend for all occasions it can be taken to the office, out for a drink, or to the ball game. It is definitely one that will get some use this season and more; as fall comes to an end us it as a layering piece as the temperature begins to drop.

Statement Fur – Fall is all about bold rich hues and luxurious textures. And this fall is no exception, you will see fur of all kinds colored, patterns, and fun textures! This season is especially favorable to the olive green and dark burgundy. For those that are eco conscious there are plenty of faux options. This trend should not be over looked, a statement fur is a great was to make an ordinary outfit extraordinary!!

Gladiators: this summer’s warrior trend

Leave a comment

Lets talk about this summers biggest shoe trend….the gladiator sandal. By now you have seen them in every spring/summer catalog and on every new shoe display. They are fun, whimsical, perfect for the upcoming festival season and will add a little edge to any maxi dress this season. So how do you nail this trend and find your inner warrior princess?

For those that were granted legs for days your options are limitless with this trend! You can pull off a knee high gladiator, a lace up, or an ankle length beauty.

Festival Style

For the petite gals out there the options are a little more limited because the taller gladiator can cut off the legs and make them appear shorter. But, a pair that is nude or metallic will work nicely, the nude won’t cut your lines and leave your legs looking longer. The short gladiator hitting at the ankle is also a good look. Options that lace up are nice as well because you can tie them as high or low as you desire.

Simple Casual

For the thicker calf girls the tall gladiator can be a bit of a challenge but, you can still embrace the trend with a lace up option that allows you to adjust the width. It is best to pick a fabric that will stretch like a soft leather or suede to give maximum comfort.

Lace up gladiator

Those that have slimmer legs this trend works really well for you as you can wear a taller gladiator that zips and it will fit your calf. A lace up and adjustable option is perfect as well because you can tighten it as much as you need.

Gladiator Sandals

Whatever the size or shape this trend is a must have this season!!

Matching not required!!

Leave a comment

Matching…..an extremely overrated thing if you ask me! I am not sure why some women insist on matching from head to toe. Sure I love a monochromatic outfit as much as the next girl but I am talking matching your shoes to your shirt and your purse and maybe even the lipstick….ugh makes me cringe just thinking about it! Don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with having an outfit that coordinates but everything does not need to match I repeat not everything needs to match!

Matching seems to be a style crutch for a lot of women out there, but let’s break out of this style box! Don’t be afraid to mix your patterns and add color where it doesn’t normally go! Here are some basic rules to follow on coordinating but NOT matching: Neutrals are brown, black, beige,metallics, and anything in that family including leopard!! Neutrals can be paired with any pattern, color, or any other neutral.Remember your primary colors: blue, yellow,and red, these can be paired with one another anytime and along with any neutral or pattern. Patterns mix them up, a great start is to pair patterns with the same colors.

But most of all: Don’t get stuck on matching have fun with your outfit and step outside the box!
