With the craziness of New York Fashion Week behind us, we have to admit, we’re feeling a bit overwhelmed. We saw Spring ’14 walk the runways while wearing our Summer ’13 wardrobe and prepping for Winter ’14 in the office. If you’re confused, just imagine how we feel! Our heads are spinning with thoughts of summer dresses and winter whites. But hey, it’s all about living in the present, right? So we’re taking a step back to enjoy this season’s top trends. And you can too, with a few of our tips on how to look your best this fall.
The Look: Slouchy Pants
To master this tricky trend, you want to make sure you have a balanced silhouette. Instead of hiding your trouble spots – too much fabric on top can actually make you look bigger than you really are – the key is to wear a form-fitting top to offset your billowy pants. Three pairs we’re crushing on: Elizabeth & James, Vince, and Robert Rodriguez
The Look: Military
Camo might be our favorite trend this season, and we’re totally digging structured military style jackets. In order to make it work though, you can’t go into military overload. Camo on camo? Too much. Stick to one standout piece and keep the rest of your look simple. Fatigues that we’re loving: J.Crew, Gap, Monrow
The Look: Grunge-Inspired Boots
This fall we’re channeling our inner ’90s girl and shopping for grunge-inspired boots. We like the idea of pairing such a rough-around-the-edges style with something a little unpredictable, so try a girly dress or skirt. Mixing-and-matching these styles gives you the edge you desire, while still keeping a little girly mystery. Styles we’re stocking up on: Ash Footwear, Lucky Brand, Matt Bernson
