Fall Love

There are so many reasons I am in love with the season fall. While many others may be wishing that the weather was still warm and sunny, I am completely enamored with the changing of the seasons. Not only is the weather brisk and beautiful, but Fall is the best season for style! Here are my top four reasons to love this season.

1) Beautiful weather. What could be better than brisk blue skies and colorful leaves? Falls natural colors are just too pretty to ignore.

2) Boots! Yes, I have an obsession with boots (and jeans, and bags, and jackets…) If I could, I would wear my boots year round – that’s how much I love them. Seen below are a pair of boots that I have just discovered online. I love the tassels located in the back – adds a little extra “oomph.”

3) Jacket season! I love layering, and Fall gives me the perfect excuse to do just that, with a great selection of jackets and coats to choose from. Seen below is a beautiful INC pea coat I recently purchased, except in mustard yellow instead of red. What I love about this pea coat is the color and the cut.

4) Scarves, scarves, and more scarves. Scarves are a great way to accessorize any outfit, but can also be used for more practical purposes such as fighting off the cold. I rarely ever leave the house without a scarf. For the Fall, I tend to wear more neutral colored scarves, because they match with more. Seen below is a silk Batik scarf from Indonesia. I love that this scarf is decorated in neutral colors, but also with intricate designs.

Trend Alert

August is always an exciting time for the fashion world, as preparations are busily being made for fashion week and fall and winter 2011/2012 color trends are being decided. Surprisingly, color trends for the upcoming colder months (my favorite kind of weather) are anything but typical. Darker colors are out and brighter colors are in.

Colors for Women’s Wear:

Purple, Orange, Red, Maroon, Caramel, Camel, Gold, Teal

Colors for Men’s Wear:

Blue, Camel, Orange, Yellow, Teal, Chocolate

The key to the upcoming seasons is not one specific color, but instead a mixture of different hues – mix and match!

Here’s a dress I found online, that mixes two different colors very well. I couldn’t stop looking at it! I am trying to refrain from buying it…even though the price is amazing.
