The Shoulders Have It!

Shoulders have been getting more and more exaggerated until we have once again found ourselves reminiscing the 80's. This look is growing on me but I haven't seen a lot of it in the mass market yet so be on the lookout and be among the first to rock the trend. I really like this look in a short dress like the one on Blake Lively pictured above, the rising hemlines update this look. I also like the look in a jacket but I like the jacket (pictured: sportmax notte) or dress to be fitted to give the sharp shoulders a nice dimensional look. Try it out!

Get familiar with the "Snood"

This season I am loving the snood! Part hood part scarf this look is so now! You'll probably be seeing more and more of this look and hopefully you can find an inexpensive snood as well as the always perfect Burberry option. The three snoods pictured are all Burberry and although they are a little expensive, it's totally a wardrobe staple you'll wear for years to come. Try out the snood this season and keep warm and cozy come winter!

A Frightening Fashion Don't!

And now ladies, a fashion don't! This fall you may see these larger than life animal tees and honestly I'm not loving it. I don't see how wearing a tee shirt featuring King Kong about to eat everyone that walks by you is fashion, not everything trendy is trend worthy so please for the sake of small children don't buy a shirt like this. There are plenty of hot trends this fall so skip this one and move on to the next!
Happy Shopping!

Zip it up!

Zippers are so hot this season. You can find zippered looks everywhere from Bloomingdale's to Forever 21. Zippers go along with the "tough" looks that we've seen a lot of already, zippers have become more than just functional; you'll notice that zippers are very visible on clothing or they're the detailing on skirts, leggings, and tops. I particularly like this trend on bright skirts that have very visible zippers on the back. Of course wear only one zippered item at a time, i.e. don't wear leggings with zippered sides and a top with a zipper down the middle.

Fall Nail Polish Trends

Fall fashion trends extend to your nails too so don't forget to stock up on some fun new polishes.

I love painting my fingers dark hues in the fall and winter. This fall/winter purples are very in! I suggest the two shades pictured left by O.P.I. in Parlez-vous a lavender grey and Give-me-Moor a dark purpley hue. Navy polish was huge last fall and it's still pretty now, try Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees a navy with a gray tint. I really like grayish shades for this fall too, it's very edgy. If you're really looking to be trendy this season, try "matte about you" a matte finish topcoat. It sounds weird but going matte adds an unexpected finish for our normally glossy tips.
