It has to be all the talk of NY Fashion Week and my fond memories of back to school shopping that has me in the mood for fall fashion. It's certainly not the weather here in the DC area. It's super humid and supposed to be in the mid to high 80's all week. There is no sign of fall in sight. This weekend I took a little trip to my favorite outlet, Talbots, in search of bargains. I found two items that were on my list, a white blazer (originally $224 for $24.99!) and some fun ankle pants (mine are plaid). I also snagged a fantastic silver sequin top. It wasn't on my list but at $24 I couldn't pass it up. My shopping trip and the pile of September issue fashion mags on my coffee table inspired this post.
There are tons of trends on tap, as usual. These are some of my favorites. I'm already embracing the military, white and plaid trends. A leather skirt is on my list and I spied a brocade skirt at Talbots that I should have purchased but didn't. I may have to go back for it. Bordeaux is an easy trend to embrace. Graphic prints can be done in with a single piece like a top, dress or skirt instead of an entire outfit. A bit of menswear is fun, try a jacket, hat or some oxfords. You don't have to go full on Victor Victoria to wear this tread well.
This week, I'll be sharing my tips on how to fit these fall trends to your own personal style.
