Fall Fashion Trends

I am so excited about the trends for this fall and wanted to share with you some great pieces you'll want to add to your closet for a little update.

Menswear Plaids
I love menswear inspired pieces and plaids so put the two together and voila! instant greatness. I haven't seen a lot of this plaid in the past few years and I am really excited it is making it's ways back into the fashion world. These pieces are easy to wear with a solid jacekt for a mix-n-match suiting look or for a chic fall look through on a v-neck sweater.

Mad Men Fashion
This look is very "Lady Like" with high waisted trouser's, full skirts, ankle pants and laces. Banana Republic has even launched a whole "Mad Men" line....which in my opinion might have been a little much, but you can find this style in most all retailer's right now. The high waist trend, when done right looks good on most all body types. High waist trouser's are very elongating on the leg with a tucked in top but be sure to put on a heel...a ballet flat will make you look frumpy.

You are going to see a lot of statement accessories with chic simple outfits. There is nothing I love more than a basic black-on-black outfit topped off with a statement necklace or add a leopard scarf  and red pumps. Adding an new accessory is the easiest way to update an old outfit. 

What fall trends are you excited to add to your wardrobe? Stay tuned for the upcoming Scarf Tutorial. With so many different styles out there, it can get confusing on how to rock one!


  1. I agree with the excitement of the fall trends. I'm also looking forward to ankle boots and silky blouses.

    Also, Banana Republic has been running its Mad Men line for at least 2 years (it isn't new). I used to work their and remember their first collection which was also campaigned with a walk-on roll contest. (I actually think Jessica Quirk of What I Wore was in the running for it)

  2. Miss your posts, hope you'll be back soon!
