Fall is coming! Time to check out the trends.
I’m super excited about this. Even though Atlanta doesn’t usually get the memo until around October, I will still be pulling out the winter clothes. I have done a full inventory on my closet to figure out what I need, and there are a few trends I will be trying out. Now, I don’t usually do the trend thing, unless it’s something I can pull off with stuff I already own. But this fall I decided I will go out and buy a few pieces because there are so many fast fashion stores around. BUT…if I can’t get them from H&M, Zara, or somewhere inexpensive…I won’t be buying it. Here are just a few things I’ll be trying out.
The leather circle or ‘skater’ skirt
I really love this trend for fall. I have so many pairs of knee and thigh high boots and I think this is the perfect skirt to wear with them. A mini skirt or pencil skirt with high boots can get hooker-ish really quickly. This trend will allow me to rock a skirt with high boots and keep it classy. The other perfect thing about this pieces is that it comes in different lengths, which is a total plus!
I have not been a fan of the color in the past, because it kinda flushes me out. I end up looking like a cartoon character when they get sick and turn green. But, I really like some of the green suede and silk pieces I’ve been seeing in the fall trend previews. I think I’ll try so green bottoms or shoes and just try to keep the color away from my face.
I have been hearing about peplums all year and how flattering they are for all body types. I haven’t had the heart to try it, because frankly, I didn’t think the trend would stick. But now that it’s moving into its third season on runways and in stores, I think I’ll give it a try. But you guys know that I have to soar and stick out at all times so I will probably be making my own peplum. I really want to play with the prints, colors, and textures so I’ll be taking a trip to the fabric store on this one!
I am super excited about this one! I have a ton of statement coats and jackets and I can’t wait to play with them this fall. You see these outerwear pieces in my personal style photos this fall. I really plan to buy a few more coats, because I have an uncontrollable coat fetish.
After this year’s MET gala, everyone is going to be rocking the punk look this fall. I plan to punk it out every chance I get, but you know I have to do it a little bit off kilter. I dance to the beat of my own drum! So stay tuned to my style pics this fall the get some inspiration on how to stick out like a soar thumb and be on trend too! I already own several punk pieces because I’m that kinda girl. I do however, plan on purchasing a few more plaid and spikes pieces.
