Fall Into Autumn Couture

Fashion is an ever-changing neophyte, meaning it’s never standing still in its translucent novelty. With a new season comes new fashion trends displayed and reinforced by the the likes of retail titans like Zara and Topshop. Animal prints, floral pastels, color-blocking platform heels…these are all iconic bolts and nuts of fashion that are reminiscent of seasons before us with modern twists on classic designs.  Here are a few favorite pieces to work into my Fall wardrobe:

1.) CLASSIC BLACK

When in doubt, wear head-to-toe black! Play up a monochromatic color with eye-popping details like cat-eye shades and red lips. I love Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lip Shine which is a lightweight and moisturizing lipstick with shimmering pearls that add shine to any outfit.

2.) LEOPARD PRINT:

Paying homage to the Queen…nonetheless, Alexander McQueen! Leopard prints effortlessly scream “RAWR!!”, so if being second-guessed as a feline creature is not up your alley then tone down that dramatic growl with a plain black T (or a simple metallic Peter Pan collar). Of course, if you feel a bit more daring, finish the ensemble with a pair of red skinnies. There you have it, a fierce ‘n feisty outfit!

The ethereal beauty of these intertwining fabrics was echoed down Fall 14’s runways à la D&G and Valentino. Originally introduced in the 50’s in linen, silk, gold or silver threads, the modern-day design has more intricate takes like macramé and crocheted lace. Whether it’d be down the aisle or the bustling streets of NYC, lace adds femininity and class to any ensemble!

Black on black…leopard prints…lace. I wonder what’s in store next. Neoprene harem pants maybe? 🙂

  1. Hi Lena! Love all of these looks. I will definitely be wearing some all black outfits this fall! It’s an easy way to achieve chicness! And I agree, always add red lipstick for a little bit of glamour. You look fantastic in the leopard print coat!!! I don’t wear much in the way of animal prints, but I am seriously thinking about buying a Clare Vivier foldover leopard print bag to go with black and red dresses this season. ~ Lauren http://www.ginnysclosetblog.com

    • Oh that’s a great bag! I saw it on Brooklyn Blonde – she paired it with a beige sweater and some distressed denim! I would probably wear mine with strappy heels, leather skinnies and an oversized sweater! Let me know when you do a feature post on that I’m sure it’ll be awesome! Thanks for stopping by Lauren, have a great one!! 🙂
