Alas! As I am browsing the stores I feast my eyes on boots, cargo pants, muted neutral tones and leather jackets! Summer is coming to an end and fall is on it's way! Yes! Oh yes! The past couple days have been sunny but somewhat cool...the perfect weather! I love feeling the wind in my hair when there is a little breeze. It is so refreshing! And it makes me feel like I'm in a movie or something. You know when they show a girl in slow motion with her hair blowing in the wind. Cheeeesy!
This is such a perfect transitional outfit from summer to fall. Still light enough for the heat, but incorporating some trends for fall. Military elements are really hot right now. I always love military details on my clothing no matter what season. It adds a little toughness to any look. Leopard print is also in for fall. I am itching to purchase a leopard print purse! That is definitely going on the top of my IT list right now!
After many years of paying close attention to trends, I have found that the clothing of each season stays pretty much the same. It is the sillhouette and details that really change (For example, the exaggerated shoulder was really popular this past year, I think that's kind of dying down now). This makes it quite easy to keep your look updated. Keep your classic pieces for each season, i.e. a leather jacket for fall. Then you pair it with a trendy piece or two, i.e. the leather jacket with tapered trousers and a statement necklace. Another tip on trends: Don't spend too much on trendy items because you may only wear them one or two times (unless you can afford it then by all means...go for it). Forever 21 and H&M keep up with all the lastest looks and are very inexpensive!
I hope that you have enjoyed my tips for fall shopping and that they are beneficial to you. When will fall ever get here?! My boots and jackets are waiting! And they are getting VERY impatient!
