I’ve been saying for the last few years that with the internet, style blogs and instant access to anything and everything; trends seem to be fading. Folks looked at me like I was crazy when I’d say that and then I read this article, In Fashion, Are Trends Passé?, in the NY Times. VALIDATION!
While I’ve never been a big trend person, I do love collecting all the September issues and watching the shows to see what designers are bringing to the table to help inspire my purchases and how I style my own closet. After looking through them all I decided to pick three fall must-haves for my wardrobe and I thought I’d share them with you too!
My must have makeup:
I’ve been obsessed with palettes lately and the bareMinerals September Issue palette ($40) is perfection in my book. I love the formula of the new pressed mineral shadows and the colors in this palette are just right. You can create a gorgeous colorful eye with a fall appropriate teal or an unexpected smoky eye with pops of magenta – LOVE IT.
I have to admit that I fell in love with a more expensive bag this fall. Coach is reintroducing some of their classic shaped bags (that aren’t covered in their logo) in gorgeous saturated colors. My favorite? The Legacy Leather Duffle ($348 – gulp) in a gorgeous shade of emerald green. It’s the ultimate classic statement bag that will last me for years to come.
If green isn’t your thing, that’s okay because they have 18 different colors that are so striking and bold they will perk up the most neutral of wardrobes. I am in love with this bag and they even introduced individual strap kits so you can mix and match your tag, tassel and strap to make it your own!
My must have article of clothing:
I mentioned that green is big for fall and that has me super happy. Another hot item I’m seeing in every magazine is peplums. While it may be one of those trendy things that comes in and out in a flash, I love it so much. It’s such a lady like and classic look. So when I saw this affordable dress at Target, I knew it was a match made in heaven.
The Mossimo Refined Peplum Dress ($27.99) is just what my fall wardrobe needs to add a bit of polish to my work wardrobe. This gorgeous deep green shade will look fantastic with deep wine color tights and chocolate brown ankle boots. I may even have to give in to the collar necklace craze and add a bold collar for my accessory to really make this dress my own.
Readers – I’ve shared mine – what are you adding to your closet this fall?
