FALL IS HERE! FALL IS HERE! IT’S A WONDERFUL TIME OF YEAR!!
Welcome to Fashion Friday! It's been a while, but I'm slowly getting back into the groove of providing you all with some good content. But I'm back to share with you my joys for this wonderful (and surprisingly already cold) season. It’s my favorite season of the year! Fall has definitely made its mark, and basically brought Winter with her. I’ve expressed to you before how I feel about the in-between seasons like Spring and Fall due to the versatility in dressing. And with all the new trends for the season, it makes fashion even more fun! It’s always about thinking outside the box to create THE look. Fortunately for me, working in retail helps me to make my job of styling much easier and seamless. Based on the trends that were featured for Fashion Week in February & the trends that my job Intermix are focusing on for the Fall/Winter season, I wanted to create looks for you guys to get a better idea of how to execute and elevate your style in these cooler temps. The featured trends are: Animal Print, Western Bohemian, Romantic and Bold/Feminine. Each of these trends are strong and full of personality, and often times cross over into another look.
The looks I've created of some of those that I send to my clients, as we all use the Internet as our virtual showroom (www.intermixonline.com). I hope this inspires you all to create magic this season and onward. And as always, if you see something you like, have questions or need tips, feel free to comment or email me :)
My favorite current trend is the Bold/Feminine trend which at Intermix, we call Femme Fetale. This girl is as bold as her clothing is. She’s super feminine but only wears pieces and colors that make a statement. She is BOLD; she is EDGY! I love this one so much because I relate to it. I’m working on adding some pieces to my wardrobe to properly execute this trend, but the bold color block and monochromatic looks are phenomenal.
The Western trend is fun. It’s the boots and the suede pieces, your denims, plaids and occasional leathers. When I think of this trend, I think of Southern ho-downs but with a sophisticated twist. It’s all about elevating your look and creating a presence, no matter what you’re wearing.
Oddly enough, my least favorite is the Animal trend — prints can sometimes be obnoxious and dramatic depending on the merchandise and how it’s pieced together..but I guess that goes for anything. If it’s overdone, it can get sloppy really quick. On the contrary, when I do see an animal print that I love, it’s because of how dramatic it is. My best advice for the prints and patterns: Keep it clean; if you overdo it, it becomes messy.
Lastly we have the Romantic trend. This girl loves leather and lace. She’s very classic but can still be as bold as the other girls. Nonetheless, she’s very well put together. Extremely feminine and chic, and mostly sticks to her dresses and skirts for every occasion.
Aside from the trends, don’t forget to layer!! (And yes, white is in year-round again!)
Let's all vow to look amazing together.
