Must-Have Fashion Trends Making a Comeback this Fall

Me and Melis having fun on our Spare! 172When I’m asked to recall the early 2000’s, three things come to mind: 1) Adam Brody, 2) my unfortunate preoccupation with applying way too much sparkly eye shadow, and 3) jean miniskirts.  Even to this day I can’t help but be transformed into the past every time I slip on one of my many short denim skirts.  If I’m not careful putting together the whole look, it doesn’t take long before I’m staring in the mirror looking at an overaged preppy schoolgirl in desperate need of a makeover.  Luckily, wearing a jean miniskirt this fall doesn’t put you behind the times.  In fact, this hot ticket item may be the best way to graduate from your typical skinny jean casual look and say hello to the sexier, yet very understated, new you!

For those of you pushing 30, your hesitation to welcome this trend with open arms is duly noted.  Luckily, jean skirts come in all lengths!  A jean midi skirt is the perfect alternative to the flirtatious jean miniskirt.

When it comes to making the perfect pairings this fall, (no I don’t mean wine and cheese pairings, although those are very important!), oversized and slouchy are your two best friends. To make oversized and slouchy work for you, pair them with one fitted item.  A fitted jean miniskirt with a long oversized cotton poplin white button-down blouse will complement each other like Gouda and Merlot.

Lastly, as much as our minds want to dissuade us from the impending cool fall weather approaching, coats will soon be inevitable.  Once again, oversized is in.  I can’t get enough of this super chic, oversized grey coat from FarFetch.  It’s got the neutral-tone understated vibe that every sophisticated girl wants, but could turn into a devilishly hot statement piece when paired with some color!

Updating any Fall wardrobe should start with the basics.  Luckily, this Fall the hottest trends can also be some of your most versatile pieces!

When Summer Turns into Fall, FarFetch has you Covered

When guys throw on a button-down shirt over a tee, pair it with dark wash jeans and sneakers, they’re dressed to impress.  But when they top off the look with a leather biker jacket, there’s no stopping them.  The biker jacket is one of those trends I look forward to each season. They’re one of the most versatile pieces you can have in your closet, and that goes for both men and women!

If this is your first foray into the wide world of leather biker jackets, stick with the classic neutral colors: black or grey.  There are so many black leather jackets out there, how do you choose? Pay attention to the details and cut.  A strategically placed zipper can turn a plain biker jacket into a statement piece that no one will be able to ignore.

Admire the jacket both zipped-up and undone.  Both should be flattering and fit you like a glove. Examine the collar; does it give you that dangerous Brad Pitt vibe?

Does the jacket have pockets?  Even if you don’t have a motorcycle to go with it, you never know when you’ll need a spot to hold your smokes.  Not a bad boy? Fine, you can use it to hold your gum.

Once you’ve chosen your biker jacket of choice, learn all the ways to wear it!  Check out FarFetch’s step by step guide below.

You Want to be Comfortable and Cute? Fine, Heres How to Do it.

Thought flat shoes couldn’t make a stylish statement? (Ok, if you had asked me this 3 years ago I would have said, “of course they can’t!”) Here’s proof that you’re wrong…and I was too! Your standard slip-on tennis shoes should be a thing of the past. Sparkles are no longer just for special occasions. You can pair your most casual jean overalls with a ponytail and these two-toned sparkly shoes and be ready for all your adventures whether you’re simply buying groceries or hanging out with friends.

There are three main characteristics that make a shoe stand out: color, print design (pattern, etc), and architecture (i.e. high heel).  These slip-on flats add color, shape, and touch of funk with a simple yet effective cloth design.

If you can’t have your uncomfortable skyscraper heel architecture, you better have the color and sparkle to make up for it!  These pink flats would definitely garner Elle Woods’ approval!

Although for many years I thought that sneakers should only be worn for exercise, these city printed Dolce & Gabbana sneakers are too cool to be limited to so few occasions.

And no, it’s not a coincidence that three of the five designs involve sparkles.  This one made it to the list because it combines sparkles, comfort, and best of all, ombre!  Once again we see that the ombre trend has no limitations.  From your hair to your shoes, let the color-changing flow freely!

It took me a while to come around to crop tops.  I still think that there are limited times when a crop top is appropriate.  Nonetheless, this season we’re seeing almost every kind of crop top style you could imagine.

From knit to woven, off the shoulder to high neck, t-shirt to halter, colorful to monochromatic, here are some of the hottest crop top styles this season!

Outfit of the Day: Comfortable and Cozy Classics with a Twist

Today’s look is inspired by warm, soft and comfortable tones of cream, grey, beige, and brown. Fall is the season to embrace bulky knit sweaters, flare jeans, and suede booties.  While a pair of plain high heels booties may be enough to make you look well put-together, I say that the more unique the shoe, the better.  The Salvatore Ferragamo booties from Farfetch in the look below will take any look into a conversational piece!
