Fall's getting tricky

Now that summer is dwindling down, you may start to see the beginning pieces from the Fall collections in your favorite stores. There are many new shapes this year, and some may be confusing to put together.

Here are some worry-free tips to get you looking fashion-ready for fall in no time.


1.) When wearing skinny pants, no matter what shape you are, balance them out with a flowy top and chunky heels.

2.) Skinny pants also look chic and casual with ballet flats, a flowy tank paired with a cropped sweater.

I recommend these J Brand jeans:

Sold at RonHerman

The black stretch fabric is chic enough to wear out at night with heels,
but the jean pocket details give it a casual look for day.

Wide-Leg Trousers:

As with the skinny leg, it is all about balancing out your shape. If you have a wide leg pant, you will need a fitted blouse/tee on top.

**Think of a modern day Katherine Hepburn.
The masculine pant paired with an ultra feminine top gives this new fall trend the right look. It is all about extremes mixed together.

I adore these wide leg trousers by Alice+Olivia:

You can buy them here.

Sweater Dresses:

Yes, they have long awaited a comeback, and designers have finally made them wearable for everyone! The trick is layering them over blouses, skinny pants, leggings or tights and throw on a belt. The look is disheveled yet preppie.
**If you are fabulously daring, throw on a sweater dress with a pair of cut-off tights and ankle boots for a new you that will have all the savvy tongues wagging.

My favorite is this Alexander Wang:

Sold only in a few trendy LA boutiques

Bubble Dresses:

Beautiful, flattering, and comfortable! What is there NOT to love about this new silhouette?
**To make your look stand out for Fall/Winter, wear black tights and a chunky platform.

This Adam+Eve dress is brilliantly done:

See their website for more information

Ankle boots:

The fashion weary may want to sit this season out. The ankle boot is the hottest trend for fall, but it may take time for people to come around to it.
**Wear with the least amount of skin showing! Throw these on with a pair of skinny leg pants, leggings or tights and poof, you're effortlessly chic.

These Christian Louboutin's are almost edible:

Pick them up (if you have any luck) at Bergdorf's
That's all for now. Promise to update more often. Enjoy what's left of summer and happy Fall shopping!
