As summer comes to a close, the fashion world is ready to help us jump into fall. Its fashion is definitely different from summer’s, and not just because of the weather. I most appreciate the variety in autumn. Sophistication and elegance underlie haute couture as we leave summer’s comfort and style behind. And it is complete, with trends from the runway and others inspired on the street. Whatever your usual look, there are some essential pieces that are appropriate every fall.
Boots are a staple of fall fashion. Over the knee, mid length, ankle, booties, combat—you name it—fall has it. Boots are one of the easiest items to work with because of their ability to achieve so many different looks. Over the knee boots can be worn to add sexiness or classiness, whereas combat boots or midi boots can be worn to complete a casual or rugged look. From the most fashionable to the least interested in fashion, boots are a go-to in fall for everyone.
The perfect fall jacket is offered can take many shapes. From moto (motorcycle) jackets, to trench, to oversized, to blazers; they all add personality. The classic trench coat is one that never seems to fail any women. Its simplicity and sophistication makes it a go-to for the fall. Blazers are so simple yet are so vital to a look. Popular color blazers for the fall include maroon, blue, black, burgundy or beige.
Nothing says fall or winter like leather, and it comes in lots of different colors and styles. So use it to mix something new into your wardrobe. Put these leather pieces onto your shopping list: a leather peplum top, a leather dress, or leather leggings or pencil skirt. The beauty of this material is that it keeps you warm while bringing an edge to your wardrobe. This season every woman should have a leather option in her closet!
Accessories are a personal favorite of mine. They never take the backseat in any fashion season. Accessories should always complement your look, never compete against it. From the box-jeweled clutch appropriate for dinner parties or black tie events, to your casual off-to-work bag this season you can have it all.
For those who can’t part with anything inside their purses and need a lot of room, the bucket bag is for you. Space isn’t compromised by style or design. Envelope clutches are back again, this time studded, printed, colored, and jeweled; the choice is yours. These are an exceptional option for an elegant event or just to provide that pop of color you need to complete a simple look without overdoing it.
When you head to your favorite boutique to select your fall look, use these staples as your shopping guide. And check back with me each month on Eve to keep moving fashion forward.
