If I had to choose between the Fall season and freshly-baked, red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing, the Fall would be my number one pick. I am literally obsessed with all things Autumn. There's so much to love: the weather, the leaves that fall to the ground and the warm apple cider that soothes your soul as you sit by a warm fireplace. Who can forget the joy of Thanksgiving! The wonderful time of the year where you're surrounded by comfort food and the people you love most. My number one reason for adoring Fall is the F-A-S-H-I-O-N and especially the season trends for 2016. I know for certain that I will not be the only one SLAYING in velvets, bomber jackets, and knee-high boots, at least until the dreadful winter months decide to come upon us. With the everlasting love that I have for Fall and fashion, it's only right for me to share my top four items to help you update your wardrobe.
The Bomber Takeover
The bomber jacket has been around for a while, but this Fall it is the ultimate item that you can dress up or down. What I really like about the new style of the bomber jacket is that designers decided to give it some flair. You will no longer just see the plain black, olive green, or a gorgeous maroon color; this season they have added prints, floral, and added textures to make the jacket a statement piece.
For the Love of Velvet
I've always been fearful of wearing velvet. I stayed away from it for years because of the material. Thank God I am no longer dreading the material, due to the fact that's the hottest trend of the season right now. Have you checked out the boots lately? The collection of the velvet boots are to die for! Whether you pick an over-the-knee boot, ankle boot, or even a velvet peep toe bootie, any of these options will take your outfit to the next level. If you wear a velvet boot this season, you can skip your accessories (the boot is all you need to look like a fashionista)!
Merch Craze for Days
Merch has always been in style, but this season it’s literally everywhere to the point I even considered making my own merch just for the heck of it. Merch is simple to wear and adds a polished look to your outfit of choice.
The choker is back in style! They are sexy, fun, and less of a hassle. You don’t have to worry about them getting tangled or twisted. It's an easy accessory that doesn’t take much thought; you just pop it on your neck and you are out the door.
I hope some of these items will be helpful to you. Happy Fall shopping!
