A great football weekend gets me ready for fall! Everything about fall appeals to me, even the ubiquitous pumpkin spice. Whether you’re a massive September Vogue reader, serial boutique cruiser, or iPhone Net-a-Porter and ShopBop creeper, this is the time to check out the fall trends. To be honest, I’ve done a little of each one and here are the trends I’ve seen:
Camel, Plaids & Pinstripes, Menswear and Big Shoulders
You cannot open a magazine or walk into a store without running into these trends. I think I already own a camel hair coat and plan to resurrect it with a new belt - to tag another fall trend.
Trenches and Long Coats
Great news for me – the trench is probably my single favorite silhouette.
Great news again because all I have to do is grab one of these out of the cabinet. FYI: I’ve never thrown out an accessory in my life!
Hey girls, summer’s over. Let’s take these back to the gym.
Animal Prints, Big Sleeves and Asymmetrical Necklines
According to Leatrice Eiseman, the Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, “… our mothers and grandmothers would probably cringe at some of our color combinations.” The matchy matchy look is not for everyone, and we can all exercise our own creativity. For me, it means more combos with black – like navy, gray and camel! Seriously, fall Pantone colors echo the season with Chili Pepper, Biking Red, Sugar Almond, Crème de Peche, and Dark Cheddar – all warm and spicy, ranging from mustard to brick to cocoa colors.
Many designers are featuring bold chain accessories with their clothes this fall. From Tom Ford to Jimmy Choo, big links are their highlighted accessory. We’ve got gold links in stock in all lengths, shapes and sizes. Gold is such a great fill for a neckline. Ever notice how a white gold necklace just doesn’t look bold enough inside a collar? It’s perfect for diamonds, but seems too delicate with a structured jacket. That’s where a chunky yellow gold necklace or bracelet is the perfect fall accessory.
Stop by and check out our gold pieces, or better yet, dig into your ‘80’s jewelry box and bring some of your older bold gold pieces in for a cleaning and a re-styling lesson.
