Colored denim is definitely on trend this Fall, but I have to admit that I’m a bit apprehensive of super bright colored jeans like kelly green & cobalt blue. Yes, they look great on the models, but realistically, colored denim isn’t going to be too flattering on average Joes. (or, Joesephines? hmm…)
Okay, I put that too nicely. If you don’t have mile-long or super skinny legs, colored denim is going to draw attention to your thighs & accentuate the fact that they are less than perfect (i.e. make them look bigger than they actually are.)
Which is why you probably won’t see me in green jeans, just throwin’ that out there.
I can, however, partake in the red & burgundy hues.
Here’s a fav…
Rag & Bone
“The Skinny Jean”
Faux Fur is a trend that I love, but must be done carefully.
I wish we could all throw on an enormous faux-fox fur vest & instantly become Rachel Zoe chic.
It’s not going to happen.
So, when shopping for faux fur, make sure it doesn’t overtake your outfit. You don’t want the jacket to swallow you and make you look large & shapeless.
I think this faux fur jacket does it right…
“Exclusive Faux Fur Jacket”
I’m also a fan of this faux-fur vest. It doesn’t look overly “boxy.”
(from what I can tell in the photo, anyway!)
“Garret Coyote Faux Fur Vest”
A good, leather boot will last you years if you take care of it!
You NEED flat boots in your closet.
You absolutely, positively cannot go wrong with Frye boots.
In the Fall & Winter, I live in cognac brown boots.
I even sleep in them.
No seriously, I do.
Of course these beauties are at the top of my “want” list.
Flat boots like these are not only a fabulous investment since they will last forever, but they also let you wear so many more items from your closet into the Winter.
All throughout the cold months, I wear my nude/dark-colored, cotton dresses that are normally dedicated to Spring and Summer. It’s so simple to throw on a black cotton dress (or whatever darker color you prefer), a jean or leather jacket, a cute scarf, tights, and a pair of flat riding boots. Super cute & easy!
Speaking of boots…
A good pair of rain boots is a must.
I’m partial to a classic, black pair.
Leopard print, when done right, will forever be a “do,” but when paired with a top handle tote, it’s an absolute must!
(I’m kind of in love with this bag)
MICHAEL Michael Kors
Margo Large Top Handle Tote
I’m really loving this black & blue satchel, too…
Leather and Haircalf Shoulder Bag
Oh wait… More outerwear!
Three words: Ponchos. Trenches. Blazers.
Hinge Ribbed Cowl Neck Poncho
Plastic Island Onassis Trench Coat
Everyone needs a classic blazer like the one below.
Pair it with skinny jeans, a white T, & pumps or boots!
Tulle Short Vintage Wool Jacket
…and the best for last.
I am so, so excited that the “ladylike” trend is here for Fall!
My favorite items from the ladylike concept are…
Ark & Co
…woo, I never thought I’d say this, but after this post, I might actually need a break from online shopping!
