Fall 2013 Trends

Fall is my dream season. I feel like it is the season that screams “fashion”. You get to layer up your pieces, wear cute wedges, fashionable over-the-knee boots, beanies, scarfs.. and the list goes on. 

Below are a few of the trends for this season and an image to show you what it’s all about. Remember, these are trends – so if you do not like all of them, that’s fine, stick with what you know and get a few trend pieces for your wardrobe, whether it be a beanie, a scarf, or a beautiful coat. 

Hats

If this fall favorite is not your style, or too out there for you, stick to the winter beanie, it will keep you warm on the cool fall nights and is a great style piece.

Leopard

Leopard is a great fall print. You can wear the print in your scarf, your flats, your blouse or even your cardigan. It is a great neutral print that can be paired with just about anything.

Emerald Green

This is the emerald green that we are going for. This printed sweater is great, but if you can find a beautiful emerald green jacket definitely pick one up! This picture also showcases two other trends, leather and print. If this color is too bold for you to wear on your body, why not try your nails?

Layering

These two images show you layering for both women and men. Remember, if your outfit does not need layering, do not add it just to make it a trend. You do not want to be smothering yourself in clothing, try and pick softer items to layer with.

Leather

Leather, leather, leather. Whether you have this trend in your boots, your handbag, your jacket or in your pants, it is a classic look that is huge this season. A classic pair of leather pants with a black blouse should be a staple outfit. Or you can dress it down with some layers on top.

If you are tired of the same old black leather leggings, why not try a colored pair? Bordeaux color looks stunning in leather.

Over the knee boots

Image

Over the knee boots are great for those days when you want to remain casual, and just throw on a pair of leggings and layer up your top half. Or you can get a dressier over the knee boot with a heel to dress up your outfit.

Image

Slouchy Pants

Image

I am obsessed with the peg style trousers this season. ASOS has a few of them (picture below). There is also a high wasted version of the peg trouser that would look super cute with a crop top and a blazer, paired with a pair of booties. Have fun with this style.

Fur

 

Image

If you are not in to the full fur jackets, that is totally fine, not a lot of people are. I mean there are only so many places you can go to with a fur jacket on! Try finding a coat that has fur trim, that adds some character to your outfit. If you don’t want it on your jacket, why not a cute fall fur vest that you can layer with?

Hope you enjoyed these trends… Now how will you incorporate them into your wardrobe?

Fall Styles

I’ve been out of the blog world for many weeks now, but I am back! I took some time to focus on my niece and my career, but I am back with some very cute and fashionable fall outfits for you readers.

Fall to me is the perfect season, it is not cold enough for a winter coat and it is the season where you can truly show off your style by layering.

Fall Outfit Shirt- $145 Philip Lim Skirt- $21 H Shoes- $94 UGG Purse- $445 Michael Kors Jean Jacket- $95 Aritzia

Some people have the impression that because it is fall you should no longer be wearing maxi skirts, that is completely wrong. Go ahead continue wearing your maxi skirts, just match it with a casual top and a jean jacket to tie everything together. Fall is also a time wear you can still continue to wear flats, but as we get deeper into October that is when the boots will be coming out — but until then, HAVE FUN! You have a few more weeks to still wear pieces like these.

Perfect fall outfit Shirt- $205 Rag Fur Vest- $41 H Leggings- $67 TopShop Boots- $310 C. Wonder

This has to be one of the staple outfits in every girls closet. It is fall ladies, you need a GOOD pair of tights, or MANY pair of standard tights. Why not even have a little bit of fun with your tights? H&M and Zara have a few, good quality pairs, that intertwine faux leather and cotton. This will make your outfit stand out more, however, you can always still wear a regular pair of tights. Fall is about deep, warm colors, so if you like wearing basic colors, tie in those warm hues into your accessories.

Perfect fashionable, yet tasteful outfit Tshirt- $65.00 from Inlovewithfashion Blazer- $24 from H Jeans- $49 from PullandBear Heels- $145 from ALDO

Night out but too cold to wear a skirt or a dress, why not a wicked pair of jeans with an amazing pair of shoes. Remember, heels can dress up almost every outfit. Get yourself a nice fitting pair of jeans for the fall that you can wear with heels – so get a tapered pair that is either skinny or boot cut, so it looks good with a pair of heels.

Here are my three picks for Fall. I will be posting more outfit ideas soon!

 

Enjoy.

From Recent Graduate to Working Woman

I know it is really hard making the transition from university student to working woman and a lot of the stress of the recent grads comes from not knowing what to wear to an interview. First impressions are everything and you want to walk into that interview showing you mean business and most importantly, showing that you are serious about the position you are applying for.

Ultimately, your outfit depends on the job you are applying for. Of course there are generalized outfits that will work for anyone, but it’s best to look into the company and their culture so that you get an idea of the atmosphere at the office.Or even better, if you know anybody that works for the company, ask them what the dress code is, you do not want to look under-dressed or over-dressed, you want to look professional, yet put together, yet chic.

This is an outfit similar to the outfit worn by the beautiful Victoria Beckham and this would be considered the generalized interview get-up.This outfit is seen as the ideal outfit for any type of interview really. It is simple and classic, yet fashionable at the same time. This outfit will always be a safe outfit no matter what the position is.

A classic black skinny dress pant, paired with a tucked in button down white blouse. It is always best to wear heals, opposed to flats, just because it seems more professional, and remember, this is your first impression, to a maybe-future manager or co-worker. Ladies, we are not running a marathon to get to this interview – if you have to walk a few minutes pack a pair of flats in your purse and before you turn the corner to your future office building, change those flats and put on your heels. Simply put your flats in your purse and nobody will ever know, it will be our little secret. And- with the heels, DO not go crazy with color ladies, keep it simple, keep it classic. A simple pair of black heels is perfect, it is understated yet classic. With regards to heel height, wearing 6-inch heels to an interview is maybe not the best idea, you do not want to look like you are going to a bar after your interview – remember simplicity is key.

The next outfit is business casual, with a pant and a skirt option.This outfit below would be a business-casual, sort of in the middle-ground of all outfits, and very similar to the generalized outfit that I posted first. The only difference is the shirt- peplum has a fashionable look and looks great with a pair of skinny trousers. This outfit would be great for any type of PR firm, publishing company, or media company.

If you feel as though this outfit isn’t dressy enough, just change it up with a black skirt, but make sure that it is not short and does not have any slits.

Image

Lastly, is the casual outfit..

If you have an interview at a small boutique firm, they will tend to have a casual dress code. You still do not want to look too casual, but throw a blazer on top of your outfit to dress it down a bit. Finally, change your pumps to wedges, for a more casual, but still professional look.

Image

Good luck at any future interviews recent graduates! Of course, once you start working you will know exactly what to wear to work everyday! Here’s an inspiration for when that day comes.

Image

Above outfit is for the summer days. Sleek white trousers, paired with a white fitted blazer with a beige chiffon shirt underneath. Pair this outfit with beige/cognac shoes, with a purse or clutch to match and you have yourself a perfect summer office outfit.

Image

Lastly, is a little color pop in the skirt, but still a simple outfit!

Hope you guys enjoyed this!
