Hot or Not ~ fall '16
** disclaimer** Just my opinions on styles you should snag and trends that have gone stale. As always I recommend only splurging on trends you LOVE, or the ones you know are hanging around for a while. Test the waters with some quality knock off pieces first and gradually work in designer pieces. For example denim- splurge, Sunnies- save. Nordstrom is always a great place for all price ranges! Button front skirts - HOT
Denim leggings- not.
I'm not taking about the ever popular, super soft, almost real denim jeggings. More those elastic waist pull up denim fakers.
Oversized tops- HOT.
Raid your man's closet!
Sew on patches - HOT.
Especially on those oversized tops.
Give me all the fringe!
Cotton maxi skirts- not
Tribal print- not.
Easy on the printed cardis and ponchos people.
Try built in chokers for even more glam look.
Excessive ruffles- HOT
Cropped jackets- not.
Cropped jackets cut women off at the worst part on their body. Especially if not worn with something high waisted.
Rounded toe pumps- not
Cropped wide leg pants- HOT
Top knots - not
Now I'm not saying don't ever put your hair in a top knot, but these days le top knot has become more of a lazy sweatpant style, and overall less chic.
Cheap faux leather - not
I'm all about vegan leather, but make sure you are getting good quality. Nothing is worse that a bomber jacket with cracked leather or glossy film.
Dusty pink- HOT.
Threads, shoes, bags, and lips. Just can't get enough!
Peep toe booties- HOT
Black blazers- not
Unless you are a business professional this should not be in your wardrobe. And by all means please avoid animal print and blazers.
Cork wedges- not
Bleached ends- not.
Instead go for a more natural sombre (soft ombré) look.
