One of the biggest things most people realize, is that right smack dab in the middle of a season, retailers, department stores, boutiques, etc., start introducing the following season's trends. It's something that most don't understand because, hey, we are in the middle of the summer (right now) and it's 90 degrees out there! It's simply just the way the fashion industry works. They are technically two seasons ahead on the runway in the fashion and modeling world and those who are unfamiliar with how it works. That's how the world of fashion and beauty is ever evolving.
Here I will give you an inside glimpse as to why what makes Autumn so special. Fall months are so much fun because it begins the season of layering lightly. One of the best things about being able to layer outfits, is the fact that it REALLY pulls an outfit together and makes us dressed to the nines! Layering is a huge piece to this mysterious, crazy, fashion puzzle. Also, we can layer in so many ways.
This has been seen during fashion weeks all over the place. Bold colors, to prints, to tan and beige- Fur pieces (real or faux of course) can create an hourglass silhouette by cinching the waist line when put over any top or dress or hide and areas in the mid-section we want to disguise.

Now, I personally love this one because, well, I'm pretty girly! Haha. But they can be downplayed. The ruffle trend came into the seasonal spotlight this Spring and has transitioned from Spring to Summer, now into this fall. Whether it's a skirt, a dress, a top... as long as it's ruffle, it's trendy this season and coming.

This isn't necessarily my style, but I do love the look of a bomber jacket! For those who have an edgy side- this one is for you. Not only is it edgy, but it is indeed chic. In shades of tan and military green- you'll look fabulous this fall with your favorite pair of denim, a bomber jacket and some cute booties.

Okay, so it's taken a little while for this trend to take off since it was in full force during the 90's. But ladies, chokers are BACK and sophisticated than ever before. A small scarf, that isn't loaded with a ton of material will also do for this look. Not only are chokers alone super trendy this fall, but choker dresses and tops. Anything that connects the blouse or dress and wraps around the neck is perfect for your fall wardrobe!

A few more fall trends that you will be seeing that aren't show in my blog:
Shades of tan- It doesn't matter what it is, but tan is a HUGE hue this season!
Pant suits- They aren't just for an interview! With sophistication and class, you will look absolutely fabulous and polished.
Dusty pink & yellow hues- A modern color combo that's perfect for coats and turtlenecks.
And speaking of turtlenecks...
YES, they are back, and totally in for this fall! Pair it under a sleek dress and you're good to go.
