Over the next couple of weeks, I’m going to be talking about some of my favorite fall trends that I’ve been seeing and trying. Some, meh, not so much, but others, yes, oh yes, I highly recommend you try. This week, we’re starting with a super soft fabric trend that I’ve been seeing high and low. That lushish trend would be velvet.
Oh, the blazer. Love it, hate it, revere it, which ever boat you are in, the blazer is a staple piece. Like, staple it to your work top kind of piece and consider it part of your mantra blazer. I mean, I know what some of you are thinking. Blazers, belch, they’re so boxy, they’re kinda like, not cool. Well sure, if you’re talking about the kind of blazer that your mother wore, with 4″ shoulder pads that made her look like a football linebacker, then yeah, those are the not cool blazer types. I mean, I might rock an 80’s Working Girl blazer ala Melanie Griffith for a great Halloween outfit (come to think of it, voila, Halloween costume figured out!) but I’m probably not going to feel comfortable and confident in something that makes me look twice my shoulder size.
We’ll we’ve made it! We’ve almost nearly transitioned into fall and I’m starting to build up my fall wardrobe. How about you? There are few pieces that I find valuable when it comes to transitional dressing and striped anything is key for me. Take into account this striped turtleneck tank from Cupcakes and Cashmere. Last year, I purchased a striped turtleneck and while I just about wore it out, I realized that I could make a lot more use out of having a striped turtleneck tank too.
I recently invested in a wide leg crop jeans that I came across at Anthropologie. I had been in search of a pair of non-skinny jeans (I already own a few) and was looking for a pair of casual, not-so-casual jeans that I could get away with wearing to work with wedges and then on the weekend with flats. So when I came across the Pilcro wide leg crop jeans and tried them on, I really really like both the fit (they are cozyyyy) and the style.
