Below are five key Fall Trends to shop for now, and three items per trend at different price ranges. I don’t believe in buying into every trend, but I do believe in trying new things, because you may surprise yourself. Of course, only wear what you feel good in! Happy shopping!
1) Mini Skirts – A nod to the 90s, these are so much fun to style dressed up with a heel or dressed down with a loafer.
The Sei Leather Mini $$$
L’Academie Leather Mini $$
Levi’s Ribcage Skirt $
2) Shoulder Bags – find a bag that you love that is not too trendy that you can invest in for future seasons
Celine Triomphe Bag $$$
Proenza Schouler Baxter Bag $$
Rebecca Minkoff Darren Bag $
3) High Waisted Straight Jeans – instead of buying another pair of skinny jeans and if you aren’t ready to go full on baggy, straight jeans are a great option
AGoldE Pinch Waist Jeans $$$
Rag & Bone Straight Jeans $$
Everlane 90s Jean $
4) Platform Shoes
Versace Platform Boots $$$ these are for the risk taker! A true statement piece
Stuart Weitzman Platform Loafer $$ Great with straight leg jeans or an oversized trouser
Schutz Platform Sandal $
5) Oversized Menswear – this is specifically an oversized blazer, trouser or button down shirt. Watch for proportions with this trend. So if you have an oversized suit, wear a fitted top under so that you are not swimming in the look.
Smythe Oversize Blazer $$$
Frankie Shop Oversize Blazer $$
Zara Flowy Jacket $
