Punk Plaid Look

Zara Plaid Skirt  |  Cropped Tee from Korea  |  Free People Denim Jacket (similar) |  Sunglasses from Korea
Aldo Brendal Boots (similar Frye Engineer Boots)  |  Alexander Wang Rockie Bag


I wrote about how classic prints are making a comeback last week.  Another trend that is huge for Fall is the whole punk rock look.  Conveniently, anything plaid works for either trend so you can kill 2 birds with 1 stone.  To turn a look more "punky", I would add metallics like studs, chains, zippers and buckles.  As with any look, keep something about it simple and understated (in this case, the cropped t-shirt) to balance it out and to prevent from looking constumey.

Fall Trends 2013: Pastel Coats

Pastel coats are so pretty, so unexpected and so on trend this Fall and Winter season.  A winter coat in a powdery blue or a pale blush would stand out in a sea of black and tan coats and I kind of love that.  That you don't have to take off your coat to make a statement all winter long.  I love the look below pairing it with a skirt or a dress and some black ankle boots.  I also think it would look great with a pair of slim fitting pants and a plain black turtleneck (which are back this season).

Since it is still technically summer and many retailers have not come out with their outerwear yet, it took more time than usual coming up with the options above.   I'm also finding that some pastel coats (like the Rochas one above) are selling out immediately.  There was a pink one at Club Monaco last week that isn't showing on their website anymore.  I have the H&M one on it's way to me so I'll definitely be reporting on how it turns out.

In terms of fit, as you can tell from my selection, I personally like the oversized cocoon style and rounded shoulders if possible.  Celine, Carven, Proenza Schouler and Rochas all showed that style in pretty pastels and they made me swoon.

I'll leave you today with a picture of the stunning blogger/photographer/model Hanneli Mustaparta shutting it down in this rose coat and metallic belt.  Happy Monday!

Fall Trends 2013: Classic Prints

Now that summer is slowly creeping to an end, I'm starting to get excited about Fall Winter trends.  There are so many to discuss but I will probably share in detail 5-6 wearable trends for the upcoming season.  So, without further ado, trend #1...

After a flurry of tropical prints, a return to classic ones is a breath of fresh air.  It seems like everyone from Stella McCartney to Celine to Rag & Bone showed classic prints for Autumn/Winter 2013.  The clear standout of them all was the houndstooth.  Love how a print centuries old can be made new again.  

Pair it with something unexpected like distressed denim or leather shorts to bring it up to date.  Add a bright red, cobalt blue or even a pop of neon for some color.  

Another great reason to partake in this trend is because you probably already own something plaid or checked.  Go digging in your closet or even your moms for some classic prints to wear this season.
