Fall Fashion: Mom, Please Read.

Aren't you glad that I am saving you all that time of checking reviews of the Fall Runway? The bonus? You also get my opinion =)

Here is what I found while putting together my fall wardrobe:

  • Support PITA, and still wear fur-- Faux fur is what its all about this fall.
  • Now is the time to embrace the runway with mixing prints--painterly water colors, flowers, diagrams. Just make sure they have some commonality like color, theme or mood.
  • Love that animal prints are so hip and wearable for the chilly months!
  • Use Military green as a punch of color in your accents, cardigans or as a bigger statement: structured military style jackets.
  • Take your pick-- Minimalism or Volume.
  • Two words: Orange Leather. Don't use this as an everyday thing, pair with a Minimalistic look.
  • I love GOLD! But not in the Austin Power's Goldmemeber way.. don't go crazy, here.
  • Nail art is not for the faint of heart... Dark colors next to the tips and lighter metallic at the cuticle.
  • Red or Purple lips are a fun statement with minimal make-up.
  • Grey is the new understated neutral... Although its been a personal favorite for a long time!
  • Reinvent your Chic look with Black-on-Black!
  • Want to stand out in a crowd? Replace one piece of your B-O-B with a Gem-tone top or skirt.
  • To get another great jewel-tone look, (Colors like Garnet, Emerald, Malachite, Amethyst, Sapphire, etc.) use them monochromatically
  • Lace-Like earrings are a new favorite accessory.
  • Framed satchels are the new sophisticated bag along with the ever-favorite envelope clutch!
  • Check out the Christian Siriano or Lela Rose lines at Payless--Adorable shoes for cheap!
  • Boots and Booties everywhere! But don't forget to carry over your peep-toes and high-heeled penny loafers with your new favorite Tailored Coat.
  • Another fave summer carry over: Pair your flowery summer dress with a leather jacket. Look for a leather jacket with a slight sheen.
  • Still in love with those skinny belts.. Take your favorite cozy sweater and pair with a skinny belt to give yourself a waist.
  • Hate walking blocks in your adorable, yet painful heels? Check out Cole Haan's new line with Nike's comfort technology.
  • Now, don't forget your top-handle bags =)
Some trends I was not-so-taken-with...
  • Men's trousers
  • NOT so into the cargo's...
  • Longer, full skirts
  • Chunky Sweaters, if you DON'T accentuate the waist
  • Fur boots... ick.
