Fall Fashion Favorites

As i was putting together this season's fall fashion overview i had a distinct sense of deja vu. It seems as though our favorite designers have decided the present trends are fabulous enough to keep in the line up for yet another season. This pleases me because i am a huge fan of wide-leg trousers, scarves, pencil skirts, bangles, etc. - the list just goes on and on. Speaking of lists, I've decided to take some cues from the bible, (yes I'm speaking of Harper's Bazaar) and give you this season's must-haves in a different format.

KEEP IT: We like this category! Why? Because you don't have to pinch pennys from every pay check to buy these pieces - you should already have these in your wardrobe! Keep wearing the delicious duds from last season! You earned it.

-High-waisted pencil skirts (Pair with a solid color button down and statement pumps for a hot look!)

-Wide-leg trousers (always sexy! Remember to wear something form fitting up top).

-Pashmina scarves of every color! (white shirt, wide-leg trousers, colored pashmina - you're ready to take on the town).

-Florals (skirts, dresses, blouses, flats, heels, etc.)

-Day clutches (keep that big honking clutch at your side!)

-Bangles (layer your wrists and neck! WARNING - do not do this all at once, please!)

-Skinny/wide belts (skinny belt your blouses for a simple change-up)

-Classic trench (I know, i know I'm a broken record).

-Tights! (tights are still a staple this season. Wear a pair of plum tights with a solid black sweater dress!)

-Boots, boots and more boots (ankle, thigh, mid-calf, stretchy, over-sized - just buy a pair and wear them, okay?)

TRY IT: The good news? You don't have to buy too many new pieces for fall; The bad news? You do need to take a few risks. You can do it, just breathe and button!

-ANYTHING purple (pumps, blouses, tights, hand bags, bangles - it's the hot color this fall).

-Boyfriend jeans (not gonna lie, i hate these jeans because i am a woman with curves. If you're built like Katie Holmes, go crazy).

-Lace (That's right we're taking a journey back to the 80's for this one - break out your material girl goods!)

-Patterned flats (So cute! Wear with black straight-leg pants and a long black sweater).

-Sky-high heels (Christian Louboutin and his gang have declared 5-inch heels the norm this season. If you choose to participate, please have a first-aid kit on hand!)

STORE IT: For the love of god, please pack everything listed below in a box. Thanks, management.

-Gauchos (these haven't been in style for a while, i hate gauchos with a passion!)

-Cleavage (not work appropriate my friends...)

-Wedges (pack these away till next summer!)

-Slinky esque bracelets (They're just loud and obnoxious)

-Motorcycle jacket (just my opinion, but i think these jackets are SO trailer park!)

-Bright patterned tunics (it's over! Maybe you should just burn these?)

-80's cut-off leggings (Get these out of your wardrobe! Switch to tights!)

Satisfied? Feel free to comment with questions or something i missed!!!
