Perfect Fall Day Look

When it comes to dressing for fall, you have the opportunity to drag some of your more summery things into the cooler weather with you, creating fun new looks as you go. I’ve been loving mules all summer and this outfit is the perfect way to incorporate it into a put together weekend look. Capes and ponchos are a huge trend this season, and throwing it over a sweater is an easy way to layer up against those cold drafts.

How To Create Runway Style On A Budget

Isabel Marant is without a doubt one of my favorite designers. If I had to wear only one designer collection for a whole season, I’d easily pick hers. Her style evokes a sense of independence with a dash of playful whimsy. It’s the girl inside of all of us with the bones of a strong independent woman.

It can be tight on the purse, however, to purchase an entire Isabel Marant ensemble and an outfit (shoes, skirt, top) can easily set you back $1500 (yikes). I created an inspired outfit from her spring/summer 2015 collection. I might add that it’s pretty darn adorable, and all for the lower price of $158 (this includes the shirt, skirt and shoes and excludes the accessories).

Outfit 1

I balanced out the tassels and boho feel with a more modern pair of sunglasses to drag you back into the future and the simple black slip-ons are also a nice alternative to heels or ankle boots. They’re also super comfy and thankfully something that’s actually trending this season.

Statement earrings are a big thing this year and they add a very feminine vibe to any look. Think Dolce & Gabbana with their massive earrings that celebrate the femininity in all of us. And finally a suede bucket bag for the sake of suede.

Check it out! Does it work? Does it remind you mildly of an Isabel Marant inspired look? What would you have done differently? Comment below! Outfit details below.

Outfit 2

This all black look cost about $226 including the suede skirt (Mango), the tasseled top (Victorias Secret) and the lace up heels (Express). The key to inspired dressing is pay attention to the types of materials the designers used. Was it silky, super thick textured cottons with lots of woven detail, or lots of see through materials. What was the color palette and how did they style the items. Was it oversized, baggy or fitted. This way you can always mix and match pieces from other vendors and get a pretty great looking outfit.

London, Milan and Paris; A Recap

I haven’t kept up with the London, Milan and Paris shows as much as I did last year, but I couldn’t resist doing a quick look-through of the shows and the collections. I loved a lot of the collections though some seemed to be a little over the top. Isabel Marants’ was the most runway to street wearable but Valentino and Chanel, who traditionally aren’t my favorite, really took the cake this year. Their looks were true to their house DNA and actually quite beautiful.

Check out some of my favorites down below!

Spring/Summer Trend: The Playsuit

Playsuit, romper, jumpsuit; whatever it’s called, it’s adorable. I love a fun, bright romper because it’s so easy to wear and looks amazing on anyone. You can have a dressy romper or a playful one, and I’d consider this towards the playful, fun day-date weekend look. The reason I chose it for my Spring/Summer Trend collection is because of the material. The bright color, silky material and the pattern feel like a 1950’s vintage beach girl, which I love. Any romper that has a burst of color, pattern or texture will be trending this season.

I added a trench coat because it tones down the busy-ness of the romper and gives it a more mature approach. The clutch compliments the material on the pattern and the sandals are those wardrobe staple leather sandals that every girl should own. Perfect for a balmy spring day! The earrings add to that boho vibe and with hair worn loose and wavy, will complete the look entirely.

Spring/Summer Trend: Red

If you read the last article, (or watched any of the fashion weeks and street styles) you’d know that a major player in the events was the color red. Whether dark burgundy hues or bright red, it certainly propped up enough for people to notice. Not only that, but I think that since last year was so monochromatic, we’ve been looking for something to break us out of our bubble.

The reason for red? It’s bright, happy, playful, sensual, and more. A pop of red is a great way to spice up a look because it’s such a daring color. You’ll see someone wearing red as often as you’ll see a red car on the road. Not often. This is way it’s a fan favorite. Check out the look below to see how to wear red in a totally rad (that was weird..) way.

You’ll see I’ve incorporated all the major trends into this one look. The mules, the textured top, the feathery earrings and even a good solid bucket bag. The bucket bag will never go out of style because it’s been a wardrobe staple since carrying a handbag even became a thing. Invest a good black (or tan) one, they go with just about any outfit.
