Fall Must-haves!!

I was inspired by fashion style guru Rachel Zoe for this post on some fabulous fall must haves. Here is my take on what every fabulous fashionista should fill their already over-flowing closets with!

This fall try sporting a Chic Fedora- a trend that can be carried throughout all of the seasons! Stylish Rain Gear-boots and umbrella are must haves! Cat Eye Sunglasses- Gotta’ keep your eyes protected so you can continue to spot cute pieces to add to your wardrobe! Something Python- So Luxe! A statement ring- Usually for after hours, but why not try to mix one into a day look? A Patent pouch- Patent was taking over the shoe and handbag world, now tryout a patent clutch! Drop earrings in jewel tonnes. Suede heels- a different take on heels, cute paired with tights! Try a Color Block belt in fun colors and textures. Cozy sweaters- perfect for snuggling up on the couch, or worn throughout the day! Lace up ankle boots- these are great if you can find them in more neutral colors, they can easily be worn with anything. Coloured cords in a fun fall tonne ( who would have ever imagined cords would make a comeback… not me)..Statement cuff, cute gloves, something mustard! This color is fabulous and amazing for fall. A statement scarf- I La-la-LOVE animal print, so animal print is always a good choice in my books! Some people are really against the whole faux fur look, but if it is faux, I don’t see what the big deal is, it can make any outfit catwalk worthy. I love the look of a fur vest over a plain long sleeve top, definitely adds style to a plain outfit! Now, I know it isn’t winter just yet, but beanies are defiantly cute and the cosier and the warmer, the better! Finally, amp your look up with a fun tall nail trend! Look for shades that are deep, dark, warm, or jewel tonne to add some extra spice to your look!

All that glitters is gold

Sparkly statement pieces are becoming quite popular right now.  From ankle boots-to- crop jackets, sequins, glitter and sparkles are key to standing out this fall.  Its like playing dress up as a little kid, but only with much more fabulous and beautiful pieces.  Here are some of my favorites right now:)

And for those not wanting to make quite as big of a statement, try opting for some less flashy trends, like glittery nail polish or eyeshadow!

Here is my take on this trend:)

  1. Bettsy Johnson Combat Boots
  2. ModCloth
  3. Micheal Kors Sequin Crop Jacket
  4. Steve Madden booties
  5. Kate Spade clutch
  6. (designer unknown)
  7. Mui Mui ankle boots
  8. OPI
  9. Debborah Lippmann
  10. Unknown
  11. Nicole for OPI
