Fall Fashion Essentials with a Trendy Twist

Saturday, September 3, 2016

Hey! I was recently approached to have a guest editorial on my blog. I've seen a bunch of bloggers have guest posts so I thought it'd be great to try it. I made sure that the content of the guest post was appropriate for my blog so hopefully you enjoy it :) The post was written by Meredith Stewart. Here's a short bio that was written up about her:

Meredith is a West Coast transplant living in Texas who lives and breathes fashion. When she’s not working in a boutique, writing about fashion, or shopping, she loves watching trashy reality shows, drinking wine, and having dance parties with her roommate and best friend.

When the temperatures start to dip, it's time to pull out those fall favourites, like cozy sweaters, familiar jeans, and cute little booties. But with so many awesome trends this season, I can't help but want to incorporate those, too. From feminine ruffles, to velvety goodness, to faux fur accents, this fall is all about details that are ultra rich and luxurious. Luckily, I've found a way to fuse these two ideas together, finding some of the cutest trendy autumn essentials that you'll definitely want in your closet. Check out my 5 favourites below!

1) Fall Florals

  • Floral prints are not off limits for fall, especially when they incorporate some of the season's best colours. This trendy pattern plus your favourite sweater equals an instant autumn wardrobe essential, just like the red, white, and black floral fantasy print featured from Kenzo. This sweater would look awesome paired with a sleek pair of skinny black track pants, heels, and your favourite clutch.
  • 2) Flared Everything

  • When it comes to a great pair of jeans for fall, the wardrobe staple just can't be beat. Like the sweater, denim is a must-have, but this time around, it's all about that flared bell bottom leg. This style is great for balancing out your silhouette, plus it lends a nice retro vibe. Fortunately, this pair from Current/Elliott would look great with boots, sweaters, coats, and all the typical autumn fashions.
  • 3) Plush Velvet

  • Velvet is in for fall. While most people tend to love it or hate it, if you're in the latter category I'm here to tell you not to write it off just yet. By incorporating the supple textile through smaller pieces like shoes and accessories, you can easily rock this trend. I especially like these black velvet ankle booties from Isa Tapia. The gold details add a nice touch of opulence, while the shape is sleek and go-anywhere worthy.
  • 4) Liquid Metal

  • A sleek purse for every occasion is a must. Couple that notion with the glossy liquid metal trend, and you've got a recipe for fashion greatness. The Sara Battaglia clutch with bow, white leather, and gold details is the perfect "going out" handbag. Team this piece with your little black dress and tights, or with your little black boots and skinny jeans for a touch of instant glam.
  • 5) Boyish Bombers

  • Menswear for women is a recurring fall fashion trend, and the bomber jacket has emerged as one of this autumn's key players. I really like this look because it's effortlessly stylish and would work just as well with a pair of jeans as it would paired with a cocktail dress and heels. The rich faux suede and sleek lines on this bomber from River Island is a perfect wear-with-everything fall wardrobe staple.
  • I hope you've enjoyed this foray into trendy fall fashion essentials as much as I have. Sometimes all all it takes are a few suggestions to inspire your own seasonal wardrobe. As you can see, when you have the ability to combine of-the-moment looks with classic pieces, the outfit possibilities are endless.

    It's Adrienne again - hope you enjoyed the first guest post on my blog! Huge thanks to Meredith for writing this. This is also the start of fall-related posts. I've had so many ideas brewing so I'm excited to share once it's all ready:)
