As you’re out there shopping this Fall, you’re going to see tons of new styles – eye catching fabrics, futuristic silhouettes, and bold prints.  But how do you determine which pieces are worth investing in and which styles are just seasonal trends.

Okay, so leather isn’t a “new” trend.  But this Fall, we’re seeing leather everywhere – in the most modern ways and with a very luxe look.

Velvet reminds me of being a kid during the Holiday’s (all of my Christmas dresses were velvet).  But this Fall, opt for velvet accessories in deep navy or burgundy hues for a grown-up, ladylike look.

Yes, bedazzling is for children and embellishments are for adults.  There is a huge difference!  This Fall, look for classic silhouettes that have minimal embellishments or studs – for a girlie twist, and a little edge.

The military trend has been a Fall favorite for quite a few seasons now.  But this Fall, update the military look by wearing streamlined pieces in neutral tones for a sophisticated take on the trend.
