There are trends-a-plenty featured in the fall mags and blogs ... most of which aren't super trendy. Yay! This will be a good fall to invest, unlike the fall when the hi-low skirt assaulted us.
Here's where I'm looking to plunk down some money:
1) Chunky-knit sweater - I'm from a ski town, so this kind of layer was, and remains, a staple. I'm loving the refined shapes and beautiful patterns that designers are showing.
|This Helmut Lang sweater is my idea of perfect. Add a scarf and a slim jean ... don't take it off all winter!|
2) Military inspired jacket - much like a denim jacket, this style is effortless and layer-able. It's the perfect topper for jeans and looks fresh with skirts and dresses, just add a chunky boot.
|This style has a gorgeous drape and nice details in the rear-view too. (It's not so "grassy" green on the merchant site.) Elizabeth & James coat.|
|Love the subtle color palette and easy drape of this Karaline top, available at Tumbleweed.|
4) Just one more pair of boots ... I swear - or maybe two.
|The zipper detail from the bottom of the heel to the top of the boot is incredible - find these at Halo.|
|I'll wear these with cozy tights and shorter skirts ... and that chunky sweater above! Vince.|
5) Dresses - a good dress is hard to find. My philosophy is to snap 'em up when you find them - I'm always shopping for dresses! In the colder months, I look for styles that layer well with scarves and cardigans and for fabrics that won't cling to tights.
