Relaxed Fall Styles

September fashion is a bridge from the light weight and loose clothes of summer to the structured heavy weights of fall and I for one am having a hard time coping with the fact that it is indeed September and summer is ending. To help me{and you!} feel better about the situation, I have found some truly beautiful pieces that are a little bit summer and a little bit fall. Which makes them perfect for right now!

First is this lovely feminine Solna Sleeveless Top by Velvet by Graham and Spencer. I am loving the neckline, the super soft and drapey material and this perfect for all gray/purple color. The detail really draws the eyes up to your face, and highlights the collarbone.

Lastly, I love the water color pattern{so right now!} and slit sleeve detail on the Cold Shoulder Top by Sweet Pea. These are perfect early fall colors and the flattering loose cut is great with leggings, shorts, or jeans. Go out and enjoy what last few moments of summer you can, but don’t forget to arm yourself with fall fashion from Vintage Fringe !

Fashionable Tank Tops

The sun is shinning and tank tops are out in full force. Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably notices how many a celebrity have been showing some very toned arms lately. Buff or toned arms are the thing right now and to show off all that hard work tank tops are everywhere. First, lets get a little arm inspiration and then I will show you some darling tanks to showcase your own arms! Jessica Biel showing off her fabulous arms.

 I am loving the berry color and ruffle detail{which is super hot right now} of this Sweet Pea by Staci Frati 4 Tiered Ruffle Tank. It is a very versatile top, which as you know I am all about anything that goes easily from errand running to date night.

If you are looking for a very casual, very typical California style, check out this Kelisha Long Tank Top by Velvet. Yes, it is very basic, but the extra length makes it perfect with skinny jeans and think of the accessorizing possibilities. Gladiator sandals, and over sized hobo bag and  long necklace would be oh so chic!

Trend Alert: Pattern

In fashion, color, pattern, and texture are all a part of the current trend and this spring we are seeing more and more pattern. Some big, some small, but pattern and lots of it. There is anything from floral, to the newer watery effect dresses that many celebrities have recently been spotted wearing. If you are someone who sticks to the basic solids, now is the time to dip your toe into the fun world of pattern. Something that is not too scary to try is black and white pattern, I really like the leafy almost damask print of this Belted Ruffle Top from Sweet Peaby Staci Frati. Just having pattern on top draws the eye up to your face and the flattering built in belt really creates or accentuates curves.

 If you are feeling a bit more bold, try an all over pattern. This Chapel Dress by Velvet has a gorgeous pattern that isn’t too overwhelming and comes in two different color combinations that are both flattering, either black and white or red and white.

No matter what your pattern style may be, remember my number one rule: if you aren’t comfortable and confidant in what you are wearing, it won’t look good. So make choices that work for you and not the model in the picture. Now tell me, are you an all over pattern the more the merry type of gal, or a small hits of pattern here and there type of gal?? Me, it depends on my mood!

Trend Alert: Accessories

Navigating the maze of accessories can be tough, here are a few no-fail tricks that work to jazz up any outfit. One of my favorite things to do{and celebrities rock this all the time} is to add a pop of color somewhere to an outfit. It could be a handbag, a necklace, a shoe, anything really.  Here is a great example of a simple jeans and top {a fabulous top at that, its Sweet Peaby Staci Frati Ruffle Sleeve Bib Top} with a pop of color in the shoe. The bright purple is fun and unexpected-love this look!

Another hot accessory trend is an over-sized clutch. What girl doesn’t love an over-sized bag?? This look is so functional and fashionable, love that combo don’t you?? This look clearly has a pop of color in the pants, and a busy print in the Keelin Squareneck Lace Top by Velvet so the neutral black and brown accessories are spot on. Notice how the clutch is black and the bangles are brown, don’t be afraid to mix!

 And lastly, something that I like to call the three B’s: Boots, belt and bangles. Boots have been major for the past several seasons and there are no signs of that slowing down. They can instantly add some rock-n-roll, retro, classy, or cowboy to your look. Belts are are great way to create a waist, and can even work great to camouflage a waist when wore when a blousy top. Bangles are so easy to throw on and it seems that ‘the more the merrier’ trend with them is still going strong. So don’t be afraid to stack them up! I love how all three of these accessories jazz up this simple{yet beautiful} black tunic dress by Ella Moss. Again notice the pewter on the belt and the gold bangles, mixing these is ok and looks chic, don’t be afraid to try it!
