    Fall Fashion

    5 items your wardrobe needs

    It’s here again, the season we all know and love: Fall. So just what comes along with such lovely season? Cable knits, scarves, boots, coats, rich color pallets and so much more. Here’s a few things on our must-buy list that you absolutely must have to be prepared for the season ahead.

    5 Fall items

     

    1. The not-so-basic black bootie – You may already have two or three pairs of black booties in your closet from seasons past, so it’s time to upgrade.

    2. Statement earrings – It’s all about the statements, baby. The easiest way to dress up a basic look it with a brilliant pair of earrings.

    3. Printed blouse – Crisp and clean, yet still fun. A dainty printed button up blouse acts as the perfect layering piece, whether it’s over a tank on those warmer days or under sweaters on cooler days, this is definitely an item your closet needs this fall.

    4. Faux leather skirt – Dress it up, dress it down. Leather is not what it used to be. A great knee-length skirt is perfect for pairing with tights for the office, or go bare for a night out.

    5. Fun fur – Nothing says glamour quite like fur. This season fun and funky fur is everything. Ditch the traditional, and go with a fun pop of color.

    After the Madness

    Seven straight days of clothes, crazy people, coffee, cabs and more are officially finished for one more season. Like when anything comes to an end, it’s time for reflection. Navigating through the endless looks, designers and trend trend overload post Fashion Week frenzy can be daunting. So here are the top five lessons we’ve learned from this seasons marathon.

    1. Gym clothes not for the gym are everywhere – Bust out those sneakers! Nearly everything designer from Alexander Wang to Rebecca Taylor showcased sportswear inspired looks, perfect for not so athletic gals like myself.

    2. Tastefully Transparent – From sheer tops to fully transparent skirts, Spring 2015 is all about sexy translucent pieces. Slip optional.

    3. Bigger is better – This season we saw over-sized everything. Easy breezy loose fitting dresses, coats and tops that leave a trail of flowing fabric behind. Light luxe fabrics are ideal for the warmer months ahead.

    4. Makeup is out – The #Iwokeuplikethis trend is strong as ever, as countless designers including Marc Jacobs showcased barefaces. So start exfoliating and moisturizing your way into Spring 2015.

    5. Gingham,gingham, gingham – The picnic friendly plaid also known as gingham proved itself as a major staple this season. The pattern gives any look a sweetness with a does of edge. Use it in your wardrobe for some pattern play and layering.
