Fall 2013 Fashion Trends

I know that most people love summer, but it will be coming to an end before we know it.  It's time to start thinking about your fall wardrobe, and adding a few pieces to update it.  Here are some of the fall trends that you may want to consider, before heading out on your next shopping spree!

Emerald, Cobalt, and Teal-  The "It" colors for fall.  These colors can be paired with any neutral.  If you tend to stick with neutrals, and aren't comfortable with big blocks of color, try some accessories or a handbag in one of these hues.

Denim on Denim-  This is a trend that we started seeing again last year.  This one is tricky, and harder to wear.  If you are going to try this look, don't wear the exact same shade from head to toe, unless you want to look like you are wearing a denim suit.

Animal Print Heels-  Animal prints are a classic, and we have seen a lot of them over the past few years.  They aren't leaving anytime soon!  Animal print heels will make a  statement no matter what they are paired with.  They will look elegant with a polished business look, and trendy and edgy with ripped jeans and a black leather jacket for a rock 'n roll inspired look.....very versatile!

High Heeled Loafers-  When you think of loafers, you may envision middle aged dads in chinos.  This seasons high heeled loafers offer a modern, sexier take on the classic style, with plenty of colors to choose from.  Pair these with a business or casual look, and you can't go wrong.

Winter White-  Another classic that isn't going anywhere.  Very versatile and classy.  When choosing pieces in this color, make sure you pay attention to fabric and texture.  Don't pick something too light for the season. Winter white is one of those colors that makes me feel so cozy.

Classic Patterns-  Classic patterns such as plaid and houndstooth are back, but these aren't your grandma's patterns!  This season they are modern and fun.  Sure to update your fall wardrobe with style

Turtlenecks-  Once again, another classic.  We all have turtlenecks in our closet.  Spruce up this years version in one of the trendy fall colors or classic patterns for a bit of an update.

Statement Outerwear-  So, what are the style rules for this year's statement coat?  There are none!  This is one trend that you definitely don't have to worry about being in or out of season.  Pick what you like....long/short, pattern/solid, leather/fur, trench or military, it's all up to you.  One thing to think about....if you live in a climate that is very cold for a longer period of time, you will be wearing your outerwear A LOT!  Accessorize it like you would any of your outfits.  Add a scarf, chic handbag, boots, hat and/or gloves.  It will make a statement from a mile away!

Beanies-  I am a hat girl, so this is one trend I'm definitely going to be sporting this year!  Hats are great.  They can hide a multitude of sins, such as a pimple or bad hair day, or they can bring focus to a particular feature, like your eyes or lips.  There are several types of beanies...low and tight, high and loose, pom pom beanies, and brimmed beanies.  The low and tight style will definitely draw attention to your face, so it's the perfect opportunity to do a dramatic eye.  The brimmed hats offer the perfect opportunity to show off your pout, with a bold new lip.  The looks are endless, so try on different styles to see what works best for your face and style.

Getting dressed should be fun, just like playing dress up when you were a little girl.  Try something new.  Step out of your comfort zone.  Wear what makes you feel beautiful and confident, and pay attention.  When you look and feel your best, the whole world will stand up and take notice.
