I've compiled my list of 5 (in no particular order) and used celebrity trendsetters to give a little idea of how to wear them.
1. MENSWEAR SHOES: Huge last year and still going strong. This boat shoe version is a little more casual and rugged, which is perfect for trampling through autumn leaves.
Vintage L.L. Bean Boat Shoes
Celeb: Blake Lively goes for a literal take with preppy jeans and a nautical top. To carry this look over to fall I would go for a dark jean and maybe layer a scarf on top.
2. LACE: Lace has been huge this summer--lots of fully lace tops and dresses. For fall I like it as an accent. Just a little feminine touch.
Vintage Purple Paisley Blouse with Lace Trim
Celeb: Alexa Chung pairs a military jacket with a pop of lace underneath. Kinda cool how our top mimics her style with just a swatch of lace running down the middle.
3. RUFFLES: Such a wearable trend...perfect for day time, night time, work, etc. I love the little curly-ques that the ruffles form, running down the middle of both these tops.
Vintage Blue Ruffle Collar Blouse/Cardigan
Celeb: Whitney Port wears a decidedly more over-the-top version with a larger ruffle detail.
Vintage Navy Leather Trench Coat
Celeb: Ok, so this is Taylor Momsen. I debated on whether or not to use this photo because she doesn't have the greatest reputation in the fashion world (and I must agree....a 15 year old in corsets and garter belts is just so wrong) but I'm pretty sure this photo is from the set of Gossip Girl--which means the outfit has been styled by a professional! Not quite a trench. But leather and longer (rather than the more cropped, bomber jacket styles).
5. MAXI SKIRT: We featured maxi skirts in our mid-summer trends blog as well, but for fall I love this print version. Perfect paired with boots.
Vintage Blue and Orange Paisley Print Maxi Skirt
Celeb: Vanessa Hudgens (baby-V! haha...oh my. I am embarrassing.) goes for her usual bohemian look with this print maxi skirt. Remember that long-coat trend I was talking about? I think that would be awesome over these long skirts, so just a little of the skirt peeks out from underneath.
Hope that gets you pumped to get started on your fall wardrobe! Keep checking the shop for updates...
