A lounge-y Labor Day weekend with friends, a few tasty drinks, a little trashy reading and then blink – SUMMER. IS. OVER.
September always has me considering my wardrobe.
It makes sense – from a very young age, my sisters and I would dog-ear the pages of the Sears-Roebuck catalog to mark our must-haves for the season. As you can see, my sister Jill and I were very on trend for 1970. I’m on the left – I know, I know. What can I say?
But times have-a-changed, and now I bookmark at stylebop.com, refinery29.com, net-a-porter.com and the like. You might be surprised to learn that Fashion Week Spring 2012 begins tomorrow. Yes, I said spring. So before we all totally miss the fashion boat - quick - here are a few fall trends to consider when you hit the stores in September.
It’s pretty obvious I learned early in life that style is confidence - so I say, just own it.
VIBRANT-SUPER-SATURATED COLOR. Go over-the-top in this notice-me Paul & Joe outfit. Or really, just go no-fuss and pair this orange velvet J Crew schoolboy blazer with jeans.
1970s GROOVY VIBE. Sport this ultra-glam Gucci getup – okay kidding. Instead, buy a pair of these J Brand flared corduroys and pair with a floppy-bow blouse or sleek turtleneck.
PRAIRIE UTILI-BOOTIE. Get sassy with this Belle by Sigerson Morrison bootie or simply slip on the Neruda platform from Coclico.
