New season new wardrobe. For the CHIC fashionista, however, old is new and a fresh opportunity to use the gems already hanging in the closet! This fall, take the trends summer made famous and transition seamlessly to fall.
The key to transcend trends this fall is to focus, focus, focus. Of all the trends that were popular this summer, the few that caught the eye of many were maxi dresses, neon colors, white blazers, and colored jeans. At least one of these items is your possession, and with some simple tips, will lead you through the fall with ease.
Maxi dresses were very popular this year, from floor-skimming hem lines, to ones high and low , there was something for everybody. Fall is too cool to wear the dress on its own, so why not add a leather jacket, an always-popular fabric and texture, to warm it up? Celebrities such as Kate Moss to Heidi Klum are already fans of the look.
Any color dress with a neutral leather jacket, black, crème, grey, will work great. Dress it up or down with your accessories to match your mood
If dresses aren’t your thing, and you feel most like yourself in a comfortable pair of jeans, then summer didn’t disappoint. Instead of the standard blue jean, there was a plethora of colors to choose from, from the pastels to the brights. Again, this trend was seen all over Hollywood and beyond, even the Duchess of Cambridge got in on the action!
This trend couldn’t be easier to transcend to fall- just warm it up! Add layers, wear warm knits, boots, the works. Give the darker hues some more love, the reds and greens, allowing you to transcend trends while staying true to fall’s colors.
And where would we be in fall if it weren’t for the trusty blazer! Several seasons have brought several varieties of this classic- plaid, leather, even different colors. One color that is still hot is white, and a light white blazer was definitely in vogue this spring and summer. For the fall, pair a crisp white blazer with a simple tee and leather pants to add some drama and flair. Great for a night out with the girls!
We can’t talk about summer trends and not talk about neon! Bright colors ruled supreme this summer, from pinks to greens, every aspect of the spectrum seemed to be covered. While pairing a bright pair of shorts or top worked for the warmer weather, a chic way to stand out without screaming is using neon in your accessories! Whether it’s a bright necklace, bracelet, ring, or even bag, fall’s warm neutrals will feel a shock when paired with these bright pops.
So before you hit up your favorite boutique, take a look inside your closet and explore the options! Just remember to be CHIC!
