What are You Wearing? Fall 2013 Trends

Fall is my favorite time in fashion. Wearing my tights, hats, and coats makes me feel so put together and pretty. Although this September Southern California weather still thinks it's July, I'm incorporating some of these looks into my wardrobe now:

This classic look has been in the stores for quite some time. So much so that I really would not call this a "trend." It's all about tailoring and patterns and textures that are associated with the conservative dress of those in finance. To make it your own, pair a black pencil skirt with a crisp white blouse over a houndstooth jacket. Add in a pair on black back-seamed pantyhose with spectator pumps. This look will never go out of style!  Even if you're not a Classic Style Personality, you can still wear this look:

A wrap jacket and matching a-line skirt is perfect for the Classic Personality, while the deep v-neck blazer and skinny pant are a key professional look for a sexy lady. (Add a lace camisole to make it work appropriate).

An unstructured blazer with a pencil skirt is great for the lady that would rather be in flip flops. The full skirt and cropped jacket on this herringbone suit are very put together for the Feminine Personality.

I'm a bit biased, but this is a GREAT look! If you're into vintage, this trend is definitely for you. Every thing from 1920's through 1960's is fair game. I'm loving the nipped in waist and full skirt inspired by the 1950's. The loose and flow-y easiness in the 1920's inspired looks have me searching my wardrobe for something similar.

The fur (hopefully faux!) matched with a fitted sweater and pencil skirt is very 1940's classic. While the loose and flow-y dress with the applique detail is great for the comfort lady that loves looks from the 1920's.

A form fitting scoop neck sweater and printed silk skirt give off a sultry 1920's vibe while the full skirting on this dress screams 1950's debutante.
Looking for a non-conformist edge in your style? Then this trend is for you. Pulling looks from British Punk and 90's Grunge music movements, this look has reemerged.

An oversized blazer paired with a graphic print tee in black create a more put together look for the Classic Personality. While the Comfort glories in this look, the leather leggings and loosely fitted plaid shirt and blazer create a more professional look. 

Only a Sexy Style Personality could pull of a formfitting dress with high-top creeper shoes. Remember babydoll dresses? They are back! Paired with buckle detail boots, the softness of the glitter tights and bow detail dress are femininely tough.    

Glitz and glamour with over the top details define this look.  Brocade and velvet fabrications matched with statement accessories are key to getting this look right.

 A sharply tailored tweed suit with mixed fabrications create a very glamorous professional look. That velvet double breasted jacket in emerald green? Beyond beautiful!     

See the vintage influence in these two looks? A silk slip dress with a fur shawl is very Roaring 20's. Brocade skirt and velvet twinset with floral appliques is feminine and glamorous. 

Before you hit the stores to incorporate some of these trends into your wardrobe, shop your closet! Velvet, lace, and jewel tone colors are the colors and textures for Fall 2013.

I hope it gets could enough to wear a coat in Southern California! Coats in all silhouettes are the key item for the season. Look for one in winter pastels.
