Trends for Fall

            This season, it all depends on 10 essentials. Here are my following recommendations for fall trends:

1) Flat Knee High Boots

-These shoes go with almost everything and can be used as casual, or in some cases more fancy. Some good recommendations for flat knee high boots can be found at Urban Outfitters, Aldo, and Piperlime.com. (Example: Minnetonka Triple Fringe from Urban Outfitters $98.00.)

2) Heeled Boots

-Another good buy for shoes are heeled boots. They can be knee-highs or also ankle boots. 

 

For store suggestions, see Flat Knee High Boots. (Example: Tribeca By Kenneth Cole from Piperlime $70.00.)

3) Leather Jacket

-Leather jackets are perfectly paired with a dress or just jeans. They can be expensive, so make sure that it’s a good quality one from a store like Intermix or Urban Outfitters. If you want one that’s not as expensive, you can try H&M. (Example: Nathan Leather Bomber Jacket from Intermix $890.00)

4) Anything Plaid

-Whether it’s a flannel shirt or dress, a cute coat, or a sweater, plaid is a big print this year. You can get a flannel shirt from L.L. Bean or Urban Outfitters. (Example: BDG Fitted Buffalo Plaid Tunic from Urban Outfitters $58.00)

5) Colored Jeans

-These pants are fun and add color to some of the dreary fall days. I have purple, blue, red, and grey pants from a company called Tripp Jeans found at HotTopic.com. Don’t be fooled by the website’s “punk” theme. The pants are part spandex, part denim so they are really comfortable. (Example: Trip Turquoise Suspender Pants from Hot Topic $39.00.)

6) Knit Berets

-Urban Outfitters is the place to go for slouchy wool berets. They’re colorful, fun, and pretty reasonably priced. (Example: Chunky Waffle Beret $14.99.)

7) Oversized Sweaters

-Oversized sweaters are so comfortable and so often worn. My sister and I get ours not only from Target, but also the men’s section at gap. They’re so comfortable and so reasonably priced. (Example: The V-Neck sweaters from Gap $19.99.) 

8) Doubled Breasted Coats

-I’ve found that my favorite coat is from a boutique in the Hamptons. Double-breasted coats add a classy look to any outfit you are wearing. Some good stores include Blufly.com, Barney’s, and Urban Outfitters. (Example: Hilary Radley Tweed Wool Coat from Bluefly $118.00.)

9) Wool Sweaters

-A wool sweater is a good excuse for a fun patterned sweater. My favorite is the kind with toggles. For example, the BDG Intarsia Shawl Collar Cardigan from Urban $78.00.)

10) Fur

-The Last trend for fall is fur. Fur jackets and coats are very in this season. The best place to buy them is at vintage stores. But for example, here is one from Intermix: Faux Leopard Fur Jacket $298.00.

Fall is coming. And, like any other New Yorker, I’m scouting out the newest trends. Whatever keeps you warm and is fashionable, I’ll take. I can’t wait for the smell chestnuts roasting in midtown, the sight of your breath, the Macy’s day parade, the Christmas trees at Rock center and Lincoln center, and of course, the first snow of the year. There’s nothing more comforting to me than sitting by a fire in Hamptons, listening to Christmas carols, having Hot Cocoa, and decorating our Christmas tree. Anyway, before all of the holidays begin, here are some of my suggestions for ways to keep you warm:

Grey Jeans (paired with many cute coats)- Urban Outiftters
