The Fall of 2014 is underway and now is the time to get in on this season’s trends from bags and boots, to jewelry and jackets. This is an all inclusive guide on not only how to dress in style but within the budget.
The editors at Vogue, InStyle, and Cosmopolitan all agree: leather is in. While leather jackets are timeless statement pieces, the leather trends for the season are a little less demanding. Instead of full leather ware, look for snippets of leather, whether it is on the lining of your jacket zipper, or the detailing of a shoe. Looking for something slightly bolder? Leather trimmed skirts are definitely in. Subtly incorporating leather in such ways not only dresses up any outfit, but can offer the same effect as the leather of a $50 jacket.
When it comes to all things knitwear, pastels are the realm in which you want to choose from. Paired with your favorite leggings or jeans, oversized pastel sweaters can offer a complimentary complexion for your winter bound wardrobe. Your favorite stores like Forever 21 and H&M will have a broad selection for well under $30.
The ever-so-versatile trench coat will work with anything from jeans and your favorite pair of boots to an evening dress and heels. Choose any neutral color and you’ll have a matching coat for any fall outfit. The trench coat is an investment worth your money this season. Looking for a warmer alternative? Pick a parka or any faux fur overcoat. Fur is also big this season.
Vests: Get one! Shearling, knit, fur, or fringed, it doesn’t matter. Grab one that’s most compatible with your day to day attire.
Ankle booties and wedges are the way to go for shoe ware. No matter what the occasion, these shoes can achieve your desired look. Riding boots are also still in style, but with a slight switch up in color. Rather than looking for a pair of brown and a pair of black, keep an eye out for a boot that incorporates both. This is the way to get the biggest bang for your buck.
For jewelry and more, go BOLD. With the neutralized fall looks this season, you’ll need to add some flare to your fashion with accessories. Mixed metallic jewelry and big statement handbags will accomplish this.
These timeless trends will transition you right into the winter months and keep you one step ahead of the fashion frenzy.
