With more than half of September behind us, we're well on our way to autumn! We have already begun to feel the cooler temperatures lurking in and our summer clothes are no longer doing the job! Its that time ladies..time to switch over to our fall wardrobes!
It's safe to say that fall fashion is by far my favorite; boots, sweaters, leggings, scarves..everything is so cozy and textured! However, you can't truly appreciate a new fall season without a few new items in your closet…am I right ladies? I think so; that's why I've created a collage of the top five MUST HAVE items for your fall 2016 wardrobe!
1.) Open-toed boots and booties:
Get your pedicures ready girls cuz' this fall is all about showing off those tootsies! From ankle booties to thigh-high boots, the open-toe trend is a must! They serve as a perfect transitional shoe and with so many textures like suede, leather and lycra, they look amazing dressed up or down with any outfit!
2.) Moto Jackets:
A sleek and edgy way to stay warm in the cooler temps, moto jackets serve their need without sacrificing a great outfit. They look amazing over a dress or with a T-shirt & jeans. You can leave the sleeves long or scrunch them up to the elbow for a sportier look. With a moto jacket this season, you can't go wrong!
3.) Cold shoulder Sweaters:
There's nothing I love much more than a nice knit sweater, but I've always found it challenging to feel comfy without looking like potato sack! Luckily there's a new fun and feminine option to throw on this season; "cold shoulder" sweaters! Finally a sweater that we can pair with any bottom and still look fabulous! The cut-outs give added interest & offer more of a silhouette compared to your boring old sweater..GENIUS!
Velvet is such an old-school classic fabric & this year it has been re-birthed into one of the most loved trends for fall 2016! From pants to tops, to bodysuits & even boots, its everywhere & I'm loving it! You can add sophistication and elegance to any look day or night, and the best part is, it comfortable! (BONUS!)
5.) Military Blazers:
The blazer is back and better than ever! With double breasted buttons, structured shoulders & embellishments, military inspired blazers are a staple this season! They are available in colors like army green, navy blue, and kaki so they're extremely versatile. Wear them over a nice silk blouse or just a simple cotton tank with jeans and still look sharp!
