The fall trends are keeping my mind busy and off of counting the days until our baby girl gets here; I am thankful for the fun window shopping because most waistlines don’t fit anymore. Leopard is everywhere this season and you may have already noticed it popping up in catalogs and best seller lists. Neiman Marcus had their lookbook cover devoted to the trend this season with leopard mixing on all three models. Leopard is a fantastic texture to work with and can be done up big or small. A little leopard can go along way so if you have pumps or a handbag perhaps dust it off and wear it out this weekend. One other trend that I ever so slightly mixed in with this look was the trend of ‘electric hues’. This season, in magazines and on the street, you will see bright colors paired with electric knits. I had a touch of classic fall with Hunter green but brought out some exciting pinks hues in accessories. Keeping up with the trends from season to season can be a headache for any woman who isn’t professionally grounded in the fashion industry. Here is a quick guide on what you need to know about the fall fashion buzz and where to find the most current information without extensive leg work. I have a two go to resources for a quick and current trend education. The first place that is just a step down from full out runway fashion is TheBlondeSalad.com Chiara the founder consistently keeps up with new designers highlighted in Fashion week and all the foundational fashion houses for an accurate meter of what is ‘in’. These tips and trends may not be as street ready but you’ll know what to expect for this season and the next with small style adaptations for your functional wardrobe. One more site that is trend spotting but also Ready-to-Wear is ShopBop.com This site has up to date information under “The Fall Checklist“on the trends that will catch your eye this season and has a variety of options in how to wear it and at what price point so you don’t fall behind. With these two sites in my back pocket is how I start shopping for the season with knowledge on the current trends without doing lengthy and time consuming research. We all have a list of things we need to get done that seems endless so getting the scoop on fall fashion in minutes can be helpful. Chances are after reading you’ll find you already have what it takes in your closet to rock these trends with mixing prints and colors you own. Rediscovering preloved pieces is one of the best ways to prepare for the season. Thanks for stopping by!
