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.

Plan on Plaid

Plaid is classic but trendy, casual or dressy, basic yet chic.  It comes in many colors, patterns and styles and it is appropriate for all ages.  I have always been a fan and owner of the traditional plaid/flannel button down.  But this year I am loving the versatility of casual plaid dresses.  Wear them with ankle boots, thigh high boots, rain boots, sneakers or a loafer.  They can also work as a long jacket or a layer if they button top to bottom. I also like plaid tunic tops that can be worn over a skinny jean or a leather legging.  There is a plaid piece for everyone!

Below are a mix of pieces that caught my eye and represent different brands and price points.  Options for plaid dresses and plaid tunics are included. The link for more information is below the photo.
