Fall/Winter 2013 Must-Have Trends

Lovies…Get excited! There’s no need for a complete overhaul to our wardrobes once the temperature starts to take a nose dive.  My purse could use a bit of a break! Thankfully, many of the trends that were huge Spring/Summer are still fan favorites now! Leather is a classic, while plaid is back on the scene and making a strong impression, so don’t pack away pieces just yet. Check out my list of top trends and essentials for your Fall/Winter wardrobes.

Leather. The trend that never goes out of style, but this year it’s all about pairing them with slouchy knits for a more comfy-cozy look. oh!…And remember the 90s? Its baaack! Pull out your old flannel shirts and pair them with a graphic tee and leather leggings for a punk look! If you fancy something a bit more feminine, rock a leather moto jacket with a lace or sequined dress and your fiercest stilettos!
How to Wear

Moss Green. This blend of a nature-inspired olive and muted gray make for a great hue this season. Treat your olive colored pieces as a neutral when working into your wardrobes. By pairing with white, gray, navy and black creates a polished and classic look. If you’re like me, a pop of color is necessary. Use this color duo as an anchor when pairing with colorful pieces, though I must advise you to proceed with caution when introducing brights.
How to Wear

Matchstick Pants. Flattering for most body types, these pants are perfect bringing the edge or adding personality to your wardrobe. These come in a variety of patterns and textures. For a night out, try a pair in luxe materials like brocaded fabrics or lace overlays. For a work appropriate outfit, pair these trendy trousers with a silk blouse and pointed-toe pumps.
How to Wear

Red. From bold bordeaux to ravishing rouge, fall/winter 2013 runways where painted scarlet and we’re loving it! This instant eye-opening hue isn’t for the faint of hearts,  the look is iconic, ultra feminine…and just damn sexy! Turn up the heat on this trend by sporting minimal red accessories in darker shades and step out in black or nude shoes that won’t distract.
How to Wear

Plaid. This trend is without a doubt allowing us to celebrate the return of the traditional print, but this season’s new styles and creative uses for the print are anything but old-fashion. Take a risk with this trend, by pairing your classic plaid with pinstripes or leopard print and if you dare to be different, try wearing the print from head to toe. To create some feminine texture, try rocking a plaid blouse or knit with a feathered or glittering sequin skirt and finish the look of with a statement necklace.
How to Wear

Winter White. Head to toe winter white made one of the strongest impressions on the runway this season. This trend may not scream practical, but it’s all about the fabric. Layering similar hues of stark, ivory, and cream rich fabrics with texture, creates a very cozy look. NO WHITE TIGHTS! Try textiles in cashmere, wool, silk, and don’t forget leather.
How to Wear

Oversized cardigans. The fashion Gods heard us, it’s officially cool to be comfy and cozy…finally! This trend of oversized cardigans is by far, the easiest to transition into your wardrobes this season. Just grab from your man’s closet! Style with a collared blouse exposed from the neckline with a pair of cigarette trousers for a work appropriate ensemble. One of my favorite ways to style and glam up this look is over dresses and skirts. Maxi length pieces are great outfit options for Fall. Accessorize with a long necklace to create balance to your outfit and pop on a great belt give shape.
How to Wear

Military Jackets. ATTENTION! Military jackets have marched their way into being an outer-wear essential. With the double-breasted brass buttons, shoulder epaulettes and the gold braiding, metal clasps and band-collars, integrating stylized pieces that delicately balance elegant and masculine. Feminine dresses with romantic ruffles, silk or lace paired with a studded ankle boot or tailored wide-leg trousers create a powerful style statement.
