Nothing gets me more excited and ready for Fall than the September issues of my favorite fashion magazines.  Each page filled with the seasons latest colors, styles and trends – something new and fresh on every page.  It makes me want to go out and buy something for Fall (Alexander Wang’s Pelican cross-body bag to be exact).

I’m quite excited for Fall 2012, because it seems that runway trends can actually translate into the real world – bold colors paired with basic silhouettes, mixed with ladylike accessories.  Classic, yet chic and best of all – easy!

Leather or patterned pants look great paired with basic tops, especially with a crewneck sweater for a take on the sporty trend.  Messy chignons and minimal makeup, in pink hues make for an effortless, fresh Fall look.  In terms of accessories, opt for a masculine leather band watch for a polished look and for that much needed pop of color, add a brightly colored silk scarf.  A bold, embellished heel adds a little edge to those flirty, feminine dresses you’ll be wearing this season.  And for carrying all of your goods – ditch the slouchy bag for a structured satchel this Fall, it’ll add a little sophistication to any outfit.
