Fall Fashion 2017

Summer 2017 is coming to a very quick close.  Kids are heading back to school, I’m getting back to my regular routine and thankfully, the Fall Fashion season is upon us!!  It’s like an annual ritual for me – gather the September Fashion magazines, check out Pinterest, and browse my favorite clothing stores for inspiration.  I gather, I contemplate and then I narrow down my favorite fashion trends for the season.

I like a lot of what is out there, however, these are my four favorite trends for Fall Fashion 2017:

 

I love outerwear and a cozy and stylish shearling is a simple way to look on trend.  Throw on over a top and jeans with great footwear and you are set!

 

I always seem to lean toward a plaid/check – classic for sure, but if you are willing to mix prints – super stylish.

 

Loving Burgundy – always have – and happy to see it “in” this Fall season.  Burgundy is beautiful head-to-toe, but it also compliments blue, black, grey, white and metallics, and is a chic accessory.

Gucci Medium GG Marmont 2.0 Matelasse Velvet Shoulder Bag

 

After a dress, what is easier than a pantsuit to look pulled together?  Slim or slouchy – go with what looks best on you.

Hope these images and trends provide you with a bit of Fall Fashion inspiration.  If they appeal to you, try to find something to add to your wardrobe and help you put together your own updated style for the season.

How to Wear a Skinny Scarf

A skinny scarf is my favorite accessory right now.  I love the way they add polish without effort and go casual or dressy.  Try wearing a skinny scarf with a round or v-neck t-shirt and jeans – so chic!!

In this outfit I am wearing it with a black v-neck tunic, skinny, high-rise, destructed jeans and ankle booties.  I threw on a suede trench with it.  Have fun trying different looks!

All of the selections here are from Henri Bendel…Fur trim is a big trend for Fall and since it’s a classic, it is a great investment.

Classic Sunglasses

 

Classic sunglasses – the best possible accessory you can invest in!!  Wake up in the morning,  splash water on your face, moisturize, put on some lip gloss , pop on your sunglasses and you are ready to face the world looking good!!

Take the time to find the perfect pair.  You must consider your face shape and where the bridge of the glasses rest on your nose.  And, importantly, high quality lenses protect your eyes from the suns damaging rays.  So, make an investment in a quality pair that provide the dual benefits of eye protection and looking chic!

What is your favorite sunglass shape and brand?
