2011 Fall Wardrobe Essentials

September 18, 2011

For women here are a few of my favorites. I love trends, but not all of them fit my lifestyle or my sense of style for that matter. Pick and choose what works best for you. Here are some questions to ask yourself before you purchase a “fall essential” for yourself.
1) What are you going to wear it with?
2) Where are you going to wear it?
3) Can you wear this piece from day to night?
4) Will this piece transition into Spring?

Here is what is in for fall:

The Poncho/ Cape:

Velvet by Granham & Spencer Faux Fur Leopard Poncho $209.00

Left on Houston: Navajo-Print Poncho $198.00

* When scouting the trade shows for spring 2012 merchandise ethic inspired prints were everywhere. Just wait, that’s all you will see come Spring time.

Cape Trench $89.95, New York & Company

Burberry Brit Leather Trim Wool Cape $650.00

    1. Staple Button Up Cape Coat, $301.87 ASOS

      Bellbottom/Highwasted/or Faired Bottoms & Platform Shoes

      Two separate trends, but I personally am going to rock them together. Think 70’s style all the way. What’s great about flared/ high waisted pants they make your leg appear slimmer.

      J Brand High-Waist Bette Cords $218.00

      These J Brands are on my personal wish list

      Joe's Visionaire Flare $178.00

      7 for all mankind 'Georgia' Stretch Trouser Jean $189.00

      Rachel Zoe Wide Leg Wool Pants $375.00

      Jessica Simpson 'Match' Pump $98.00

      Color blocking is still a big trend thanks to Gucci, it continues threw the fall. Of you love bright colors but are scared to wear them so close to your face, a bright hued shoe is a great way to show your love of color.

      Steve Madden 'Pammyy' Pump $99.95

      I am still going to consider is wedge to be a platform. I personally prefer the wedged platform for the comfort level. Have you noticed every heel out there is 5′ plus inches? I mean who is able to wear shoes that high and actually stand in them for more than three hours. Not me, but the wedge on the other hand is personally do-able.

      Steve Madden 'Wiicked' Wedge Booties $149.99

      Yes animal prints are every where and personally love them. Not sure when leopard went out of style but needless to say it is everywhere this fall. If you don’t already own anything leopard print try picking up an accessory like a scarf, belt, hat, or shoes before you go the clothing route. (except for a leopard coat) Leopard goes with everything and you will likely get more use out of an accessory than a sweater or a dress.

      Frye 'Nalya Kiltie Moc' Pump $247.95

      The heeled penny loafer seems to be the “it” shoe for the next 5 minutes. Unless you are going to wear this to work I am not sure how much you are really going to rock this shoe. Needless to say, I am personally going to stick with my flat penny loafers.

      Jeffrey Campbell 'Lita' Bootie

      These look crazy high and they are. I feel so tall in these bad boys. The JC Lita Booties come in every color and print you can think of. I purchased mine in distressed brown because was out of the navy suede in my size. They are very wearable for how high they are. Plus it is super fun to almost be as tall as my hubby.

      The Fur Vest

      I like the fur vest because it adds warmth so you can almost skip a jacket. Except the all the vest’s I want are over $600 bucks. There are cute ones out there but they are bulky, not a good length, or the faux fur looks cheap. So basically I am still on the hunt.

      Theory Fox Fur Vest $1,295

      Elizabeth and James Fur Vest $595

      Joie Jaliah Fur Vest $628.00

      These are my personal “trendy” fall essentials, there are more out there. Pick and choose and plan your purchases out so you will actually wear your clothes. It is also essential to have a chunky knit sweater, warm boots, warm water proof boots, black or camel cashmere sweater (I have had my black cashmere cardigan for 12 years, no joke), long sleeve blouse, corduroy pants, hosiery/ tights, a fashionable hat (because it actually keeps you warmer), sweater dress, cashmere scarf, and long sleeve t-shirts/ thermal tops. What am I missing on my list? Can you tell I am a mom since the long high slit shirt wasn’t on here? HA HA….

    The glam and style are felt by everyone that you emanate when nuzzling into these amazing stilettos. The shoes are all perfect in every espect exceprt the prices are extremely high that not many people can afford them.
