Fall fashion inspiration
While summer is my favourite season, when I pick up the September fashion magazines, my pulse quickens. I love fall shopping, and this FW13 (that's fall winter 2013 in fashion lingo) is promising a lot of wearable trends. I'm also happy to see that a lot of styles from this summer and even last fall are sticking around, so that means more mileage out of items that you may already own. Black is definitely back. Leather, camo, denim and animal prints are all still very au courant. Below is my covet list. Of course, I won't be buying all of these, but they're serving as inspiration for my fall shopping trips. And who says a girl can't dream?
Loving the boyfriend jean as they’re so much more comfortable than all those darn skinnies. I like the wash of these, plus they’re a bit cropped, perfect for showing off some wicked heels. Old Navy has some boyfriend jeans in their selection this season.
A ladylike shoe that’s practical (read, flat) with some rocker edge. Does it get any better than that?
I love the juxtaposition of this, a jewel encrusted sweatshirt! Definitely not for the gym.
The little black bootie has become a fashion mainstay. I like the nod to cowboy styling of this one.
I’m not one to drape myself in a ton of jewellery, but I do like to wear one statement piece. This fits that bill.
This shape of bag is huge this season, and I like the navy and black combo here. A little bit unexpected.
This cocktail dress definitely makes a statement. I like the rose motif, big this fall.
This sweater incorporates two big trends this season, cobalt blue and leather accents on the sleeves. Plus, it’s longer in the back to help hide the derriere a bit!
Biker jackets have become a wardrobe staple. They come in so many fabrics now and pretty much every price point. If you have one in leather, maybe it’s time for something softer. The Gap also has some made of denim.
Camo silk seems like an oxymoron, but this style of pant is comfy and stylish. Wear with heels; it can look too “panama” if worn with flats.
Club Monaco has come out with a shoe line. Yippee! I like the touch of animal print, and the ankle strap is still big this season.
And now for something a little different…I like the casualness of this tie dye dress. I’d wear it with some booties and a big cardi for fall.
