The Style for Fall: Five Must-Have Looks
Am all agog at the fabulous-ity (new word?) of the gorgeous clothes, shoes and accessories that were previewed in Bryant's Park earlier this month, and while I am all for spring style and new trends, I must admit that I was paying more attention to what the fashionistas in the front two rows were wearing than what the girls on the catwalk were modeling. I know, I know, a true fashion maven is always thinking six months ahead, but with the leaves changing color and a brisk little nip in the air this twirty girl is positively craving a comfy cashmere day dress, a go-anywhere trench coat and a pair of TDF boots! Thankfully, my favorite shoppes (hello Diva!) and websites (Standard Style is my favorite go-to source for all things in vogue) are fully locked and loaded with this season's hottest must-haves just in time to satisfy my fall fashion cravings.
And speaking of satisfying cravings, I have been taking full advantage of a lovely little early birthday gift from Girly, the Clarisonic Skin Care System. (And it's pink!) It is fabulous at removing makeup, and the gentle massaging brush leaves me with a gorgeous rosy glow. It not only smoothes away the day's tension, but I swear it is smoothing away the very few teeny tiny itsy bitsy expression lines (never say wrinkles!) around my eyes. I adore it!
But I digress. Let's take a look at the looks we wouldn't want to miss this fall:
Look #1: Lux be a Lady
Sleek sophistication in a slim silhouette. This can be achieved with a great high-waist slim fitting skirt paired with a feminine ruffled blouse. Top with a cropped jacket or slim fitting cropped cardigan. Add a pair of patent T-straps, a gorgeous leather satchel and a bit of bling for a flirty finish. You can also get the same sleek sophistication with a fabulous sweater dress (all the rage this fall) and tights. Add a touch of femininity with a pair of bow-detail ankle boots, a snazzy handbag with attitude and a ladylike wristwatch.
Look #2: Continental Preppy
Classics are key here. Blazers and cardigans, sweater vests and button-downs. Trousers in an elegant fabric. But instead of going for a co-ed on campus look, bump it up a notch in the style of the cool European. A richly colored cashmere sweater topped by a modern navy blazer. Add elegant trousers and edgy footwear, then complete the ensemble with a casually knotted scarf and a very Continental handbag.
Look #3: Shades of Gray
Definitely the shade for fall. (Some say that gray is the new black, but to me black is the classic shade and it always will be. That's why every girl on earth has a classic LBD and if she had to be dropped on a desert island with just one handbag, that too would be black…although, come to think of it, if I were going to spend time on a desert island with just one handbag it would be big and it would be filled with oodles of goodies, and it would be red hot! But I digress.) Anyhoo, as far as neutrals go, gray is the designers' choice for fall. From day dresses to evening wear, day totes to evening bags, cashmere sweaters to wool trousers to denim jeans, flirty flats and wedges to sassy skyscrapers, shades of gray will have you looking sleek and sophisticated. Gray is also the ideal foil for fabulous animal prints and bold patent leathers.
Look #4: Girly Biker Chic
Start with a very girly dress—something flirty and flouncy, perhaps even floral. Think silk, chiffon or jersey knit. Add a skinny belt and textured or opaque tights. Top with a cropped motorcycle jacket. Slip on a couple of gold bangles. Complete the look with a buckled handbag in a rich a supple leather, zippered booties and a fabulously chic newsboy cap.
Look #5: Menswear With a Twist
Definitely one of the hottest looks for fall. Don't be afraid to show your girly side however! Wide leg trousers paired with an ultra-feminine top and chic oxford style footwear. This gorgeous leather tote bag will boost the girly factor, and add a smart glass pendant for the perfect finishing touch.
Well dearest girls, I don't know about you but I am more than ready to hit the shoppes! After being cooped up with a wonky ankle for over two weeks my shopping muscles are begging for a good workout. It's amazing how quickly one's upper arms begin to suffer from U.A.D.D.* when not properly exercised (and by properly exercised I of course mean loaded down with shopping bags—works wonders for the biceps and triceps).
