Fall 2012: 7 Essentials for your closet

Fall Essentials 2012

Finally, fall is in full swing! As usual, I have to give you the Fall Essential guide. Here’s my guide to hip you to the trends. This year there are some pretty fly trends. Of these trends, there are alot of items that fit in with several different styles. So let’s get into it:

Leather Leggings/Jeans/Skirts – Faux or real, Kanye West was on to something when he (an his girl Kim) started rocking leather leggings this summer. Now that the weather is cooler, this is the best time to experimented with the trend. I guarantee, you’ll wear these leggings like jeans and rock the skirt like it’s the only thing you own. Keep the leggings mod by adding a over-sized button down shirt or make it cozy by rocking a over-sized cardigan and knee high boots. The skirt can be worn just like a regular skirt. Check out these affordable faux leather pants from Target.

Wedge Sneakers – I reported on the wedge shoe trend back in May. Since then the trend has exploded on the scene and the wedge shoe is the hottest trend for fall. The fly shoe is the best combination of a heel and a comfy sneaker. Wanna try the trend, check out these leopard print cuties from ASOS.com.

Haider Ackermann dress

Anything red/anything body-con – When I say red is in for Fall 2012, please believe it. The actual color is Oxblood Red and it’s a lovely combination of wine and maroon. In addition tight fitting dresses body conscious (fashion term: body-con) are the rage for the season. these simple yet modern dresses bring attention to woman’s curves. Oh yeah, don’t think you have to be super skinny to rock a body-con dress, plus size ladies wear them well, just don’t forget the Spanx.

Quirky Socks – I’ve been rocking fun socks my whole life so I’m not new to the game. But the sock trend has gained a bunch of momentum in 2012. guys use this trend to showcase a little personality under an otherwise boring suit. But ladies, you can use socks to make you feel fun under knee high boots and skinny jeans. Check out my fave sock websites www.absolutesocks.com. They have the flyest socks at great prices.

Estate Earring – just like quirky socks, estate earrings are a cool way to showcase your personality even in the workplace. Estate earrings get their name from vintage shoppers finding these cools jewel encrusted earrings at estate sales and garage sales. Filled with awesome colored stones and precious jewels, estate earrings (or even the costume versions) bring that spark of individuality to any outfit. Check out etsy.com for one-of-a-kind versions of these awesome items.
Jewel Collar Necklace – Remember statement necklaces from 2009? Well, that trend is not gone, but it has a sophisticated cousin that’s entered the arena  Once, again, a jeweled collar necklace is a great way to spice up a bland t-shirt or blouse. 
Velvet Loafers – this trend has been around for about two years, but it’s finally made it’s way to the masses. good thing about this trend, it comes in unlimited colors and unlimited styles. This cool look will update any style. Add a pair of loafers to your leather leggings and you’ll really be on trend. Purchase this cute pair at Madewell.com
