With fall upon us, every style mag is showcasing the latest trends for the upcoming season. Animal prints, pleats, plaids, faux fur, faux leather, reds, rusts, blanket scarves, utilitarian jumpsuits – the list goes on and on. But we all know many of the looks we see in fashion magazines and on the runway aren’t made for e-ver-y-bo-dy!
Trying to figure out which trend to incorporate into your wardrobe can be mind-blowing. The good news is you don’t need to because you can infuse a few of your favs into your daily look and be just as stylish. Plus you probably already have some trend-inspired gear in your closet which saves some coins in the long run. Win-win!
So before I headed to the mall or perused my favorite retail site for fall fashion, I shopped my closet to see what looks I could put together that are distinctly me with a hint of trendy. Check out my looks below for some style ‘inspo.’
Pleats: Sophisticated Bad Girl
I love pleats! They make any look feminine and carefree. But pairing this pleated midi skirt in sleek black with a tailored plaid jacket elevated this look to sophisticated bad girl. Add a cropped t-shirt, striped neckerchief bracelet and faux leather beaded beret, I am ready for brunch with the girls.
