This fall, there’s a lot to look forward to as I’ve been inspired by red-carpet looks and sartorialist snaps. From basics with a twist or a totally teased beehive to go with your LBD, I’m slowly winding down my summer and gearing up for the autumn. Some of my style must haves I’m sharing today as we step into (sigh) September.
Give Your Look the Boot
This season, we’ve got options galore as designers have all gone bananas for boots. Knee high, peep toe, riding, stilleto, wedge, and studded there is a boot to suit everyone’s fancy. One that practicality and style is this two tone stunner from Vince Camuto.
Battle the Cold
With troops near and far, the military inspiration is here to stay. All summer, we rode the wave of the J Brand “houlihan” skinny cargo, and now I’m wanting an Equipment military shirt. This one comes in navy, olive, or taupe or if you’re really feeling the call to attention, go for the camo and keep the rest simple.
Love Me Some Leopard
(Belle: Of course, she does. Sometimes, I don’t know how we’re friends.)
As if Rachel Zoe hasn’t hammered home the point- get thee a fur (or faux) already. With vests, jackets, and toppers of all shapes, sizes, and price points, there’s simply no reason not to be warm and fuzzy
(and chic) as the temps start to spiral down. The exclusive collection by Adrienne Landau for Intermix is absolutely drool-worthy, andTopshop always gets the outerwear right and doesn’t break the bank.
This jacket also comes in petite! And please check out the $100 leopard print fold over clutch while you’re at it.
Color Me Pretty
Emerald tones are always a fall favorite, and this time we’re playing with color in our clothing and cosmetics. With the must have polishes such as oldie but goodie Vamp and this year’s Paradoxal, Chanel is serving up the color we crave. For a new take on the smokey eye, dip your brush into Dolce&Gabbana eye color duo “Dazzling and Guilty”.
Can’t live without all your emerald tones? Tarte has the ultimate palette of colors.
Fade to Black
While some women lose weight over the summer, I sometimes slip into the comfortable monotony of wearing sundresses for three months and suddenly when it’s time to reach for pants, all I get is a gentle reminder of how much guacamole I really ate all summer. Or maybe it’s the white wine. Hmmmm. My point is that there is no better way to pull it together on the bottom than with an amazing pair of black pants. Trousers, skinnies, leather leggings and boot cuts are all coming out this season in trusty black. The Gap is turning out a collection of black pants in several styles starting at $49.99 – definitely worth trying on and hopefully going home a wardrobe staple.
