Fall Fashion

Okay, here it is.  This is what I think are the top five MUST have style items for fall that I’ve been reading/seeing and am actually going to apply to my real life. 1)  A leather or suede skirt.  Yes this reminds me of junior high, but done right, I think this is definitely something I can work into my wardrobe.  Pair with a fun blouse and some high heeled oxfords, penny loafers or boots and you’re back-to-school. 2)  Colored corduroys.  Now I’m resorting to elementary school…  I reminds me of the corduroys and shirts outfits my mother bought me in the third grade. But I’m so tired of neutral pants.  And sometimes patterned pants can be tricky.  Here’s a change that makes a statement without having too much angst about what to pair with it.  Burnt orange cords + ivory or grey sweaters = one happy fashionista. 3) Anything lace.  Lace seems to be everywhere.  It screams Victorian but pair a lace top with a tweed skirt, oo la la!  Coco Chanel baby. 4)  Cropped pants.  Gotta love showing a little bit of shoe before the snow flies. And they will work wonderfully with boots when the snow hits.  A little Audrey Hepburn but with a modern twist, these are a must-have.  Here are a pair from Ann Taylor-

5)  Pantyhose.  Yes, you heard me say it and you heard it here first.  I’m not sure if it is the whole Kate Middleton craze or if people are just coming to their senses, but let me tell you, if you want to wear a skirt in the Midwest in winter, you better own a few pairs.  Last year it was tights, tights and tights, which I still love and will wear.  But this year pantyhose will throw a little twist into the mix. And there you have it!  The top five pieces that you’ll want to own this fall to put a little drama into your brisk weather wardrobe!
