FALL FASHION Has Landed.

Oh yes, it has arrived. Fall is quite possibly my favorite season to dress for. It's the perfect time to combine warm and cold weather pieces to create a look all your own. 

To have style is to repurpose pieces into looks that are unique, innovative and eye-catching. Fall, we thank you for bringing us the perfect weather to do this in. 

So let's get into it, shall we? 

 

MY TOP 5 PIECES TO ROCK THIS FALL: 

 

5. Booties

I put these at the bottom of my list, not because they don't have the biggest place in my heart. They do. I absolutely love booties. This is the time in elementary school where someone would say, "Well why don't you marry them?" And I would boldly reply, "If I could, I would." They are amazing and versatile. They work in any season from the bar to the baby shower. They're glorious. And here are some of my picks:

4. Plaid 

No matter how you characterize your personal style, plaid is an easy-to-wear wardrobe staple for any woman. Plaid is classic and unpretentious; sophisticated and chic.

Pair with your neutral staples (pencil skirt, navy pants, or maybe even white jeans), and you've got the perfect look for a breezy day. 

 
 

3. Hat 

Women always have specific accessories they believe they cannot wear. How do I know this? Because I hear it all the time from my clients. One of those accessories is a hat. People are funny about hats. But the truth is...everyone can wear hats. The key is finding the correct one for your face shape, neck length and style. 

2. Leopard

The fall has a certain richness to it that is captured in everything from the food to the fashion. Which is why I love leopard prints for the fall. It is seductive and sumptuous.  

As Jenna Lyons once said, "As far as I'm concerned, leopard is a neutral." Just like plaid, leopard is bold but works with many different styles in many different scenarios. The trick is knowing where to draw the line. At the office, subtlety is key. During the day, choosing a flowy, more palatable piece. At night...go big or go home. 

1. Suede

Yes, it's in and I'm loving every minute of it! Whether you're obsessed with the 70's (like me) or a millenial who's pulling looks from the 90's, now is the time to shop for suede. One of my favorite parts of having a suede piece in your wardrobe is also it's easy transition to winter. It pairs easily with a tall boot in a few months. 

For now, use it to dress up your casual look. Suede is down-to-earth, but enticing. Whether it's a skirt, shirt or jacket, it will give you the allure that comes with effortless style.

How to Wear Denim to Work

Figuring out how to take denim out of it's natural weekend habit can be a bit dicey. It's perfect for your Saturday stroll, but incorporating it into your workwear takes a bit more skill. The trick is to treat it like your other workwear staples. It's a substitute for the white blouse, navy blazer, etc...The reason to wear it instead of those staples? It's unexpected. That's what style is all about. When a style element is unexpected, it's interesting. And so are you. Here's how to execute it:
