Fall Trends Vol. 1: Tough Girl Tartan

Fall is coming whether I like it or not, so I’ll bite the bullet and start sharing what fall has in store for us.

Today’s post is the first edition of the seasons upcoming trends- First up: Black and Red Plaid. Fear not my fellow Private School alums the look is classy chic not school girl.

To offset the uniform feel incorporate the trend in small doses:

Take a plaid midi skirt and accent in all Black. The black open toe ankle boots are an unexpected touch of bad girl, but the structured handbag and mixed metal pearl necklace keeps you office appropriate and oh so Lady like.

Add a plaid pump to boyfriend jeans, white T and a structured blazer. A hint of gold and a red patent clutch makes an otherwise casual outfit a little luxe and fun!

For those days when you want something comfortable but trendy, wear your plaid oversized with leggings, ankle boots and a cross body bag.

What to Wear to the Office

Navy blue is a huge color for fall, it doesn’t have to be blah! Pair it with cool pastels now- after all it’s still July (Let’s not rush the summer) In the cooler months a dark teal and burgundy are the perfect accents.

Trend to Try: Peplum & 3 Ways to Wear it

Peplum is an ultra-feminine silhouette that lends dramatic edge to any outfit. It can add curves to those with a boyish figure and can act as camouflage for those of us that have some belly pooch going on (That would be me, I lost my abs somewhere in my mid twenties.) Curvy gals can also rock this trend, cinch the waste with a belt and keep your bottoms sleek and straight.

A Peplum top is a statement piece that can be worn with any bottoms. Dress up ripped skinny jeans for an edgier look or pair it with clean lines like a pencil skirt or shorts for a more classic style.

For fashion risk takers wear your Peplum with a full skirt. Take care when pairing the two, this style is more for the boyish body types. Seen in the photo above. (Photo via Atlantic-Pacific)

Monochromatic: Celebrity Look

I was inspired by Sandra Bullock at the “Heat” photo call in Sydney. She looks stunning in a head to toe Cobalt Blue, Alberta Ferretti ensemble. It’s no secret that I have an obsession with Cobalt and wearing an entire outfit dedicated to my fav color- Genius! I’ll be on the hunt for a similar outfit without the designer price tag.

How darling is the quirky flamingo necklace? I love it, a conversation piece added to what could be considered a basic outfit add edge with gladiator caged heels.
