It's officially autumn. I've never been fond of this season, but I tried to find a silver lining. Sure, I sometimes enjoy the rainy days, with a warm cup of tea in one hand and a marvellous book in another, but it's not enough. Therefore, I found myself a fall outlet : fashion. I find an imense joy in buying the September issue (last year I chose the iconic Amercian Vogue and Elle UK) and writing about the trends I spot in my notebook. This year it's going to be even more amazing as I have a Moleskine especially designed for the fashion addicts and the Elle Collections Catalog.
I thought it would be great to share my observations and style tips with you on, let's say, 3 trends every once in a while. You shouldn't buy your clothes according to the trends, but it's nice to refresh your closet with something stylish every once in a while. I also love the fact that once I start researching I come across to amazing fashion brands. This season brought me Footwear Etc. , I just can't take my eyes off their amazing bags, such a colorful variety (you'll see how I would style them in the collages below)!
This week, I would like to talk to you about the following trends:
Miu Miu boots, Footwear Etc. bag, Chanel bracelets, Marc Jacobs Watch, Topshop Jumnper, Topshop Denim Shorts, Asos Leopard Belt, PerkyPosters poster, Ted Baker Iphone case
Thigh-High Boots - Flat or with outrageously high heels, these boots will be your allies this fall! When you feel like taking out your mini skirt (leather/ floral / in a bold color) or your denim cut-offs for a spin these boots are the perfect match. If it's early September you can even get away without wearing tights.
Charlotte Olympia shoes, Footwear Etc. bag, Chloe wallet, Zara dres, Chloe belt, Burberry trench coat, Chanel earrings
Oversized bags - It's not secret that a woman's bag is a little wonderland and that whether you're a successful business woman or a college student you need to carry a bag which is big enough. Seems like it's high time to invest in one, this season you'll find a great variety in the stores!
Christian Louboutin shoes, Footwear etc. bag, Lanvin dress, Lanvin golden cuff
Embroidery - The fashion market has been crowded with so many brands in the last years! They all try to stand out by designing different prints and patterns and this constructive competition comes in our advantage. This fall you'll notice special embroidery on sweaters, skirts, tights, dresses, even evening clutches! I definitely want to buy an embellished sweater, it strikes me as a statement piece I need to have in my closet.
What about you, what do you plan to purchase this autumn?
