I’ve become such a jacket/coat person since living in New York. I blame my upbringing in Florida for romanticizing winter.
Here are my top picks for fall:
I’m definitely not what you would call a “trendy” girl.
Since my mid 20’s, I’ve been trying to fill my closet with timeless staples – the kind of my outfits I can slip on quickly without taking a second look in the mirror. However, I do like to incorporate a few new on-trend pieces into my wardrobe each season to add some texture to my classic ensembles.
It definitely pushes me out of my comfort zone, but that’s half the fun of playing with your style 😉
Here are my favorite five trends this fall/winter that I can get behind:
While the embroidery trend has been around since summer, I’m relieved to see it transfer nicely into fall. If you can’t tell, I’m a fan of anything feminine, and I would happily don a jacket (especially denim), sweater or shoes embracing this trend.
While I may not like to rock bright colors head-to-toe (although my stylish friend Caroline is a pro at it!), I’m perfectly comfortable in a colorful coat or bright skirt to brighten up my normal outfits.
To be completely honest, I’ve never embraced metallics as a trend, but there’s something about this year (and the season) that makes me want to take another stab at them. ‘Tis the season to sparkle.
Nothing says luxury like faux fur. Warm, function and a chic additive to any outfit.
As a Annie Hall/Diane Keaton fan, I can get behind this trend 100%. Not to mention that all of those French style interviews mention taking masculine pieces – such as an over-sized blazer or a boyfriend’s button-up shirt – and making them feminine. Consider this your key to that je ne sais quoi look.
White On White
Nothing is chicer than a solid outfit – especially in neutral colors. I love seeing white and creme-colored ensembles paired with a spirited accessory like a leopard print clutch or colorful tassel earrings.
What trends are you looking forward to rocking this fall/winter?
Every year, around this time, I ask, ‘where did summer go?’
I hope everyone is planning on taking advantage of this holiday week with friends and family. I know I’m personally exhausted from traveling/playing catch-up lately, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be on the road to enjoy the holiday, too 😉
Whether you’re headed to the beach or a city, here are my top picks for a stylish three-day getaway:*your trusty jean jacket*
(love the red for LDW, but it also comes in black!)
(I’ve been obsessed with my PAIGE denim all summer)
(can also be monogrammed!)
P.s. What are you packing this LDW?
Right now, I’m snuggled on my couch in my Nantucket pullover with the windows open and a gigantic grin on my face.
I cannot believe how beautiful this weekend has been so far; it’s honestly like a momentary preview of fall. It’s calm moments like these that make me appreciate home even more. Don’t get me wrong: I had such a wonderful trip abroad, but I’m happy to be Hoboken for the next few weeks (minus LDW, of course). Does anyone else have fun Labor Day Weekend plans?
There’s quite a few things around the corner that I’m looking forward to sharing soon, so keep an eye out 😉
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
