My Fall Fashion Cravings

Despite it being football season, I do love fall… and not just because I love anything and everything pumpkin flavored, but also for the fashion.  Sweaters, denim, boots, coats – I love all of it.  My fashion sense bends towards the classic, but here are some of my cravings this season to keep things current with a little edge.

1. Military inspired Jacket

This one from Rag and Bone Jean is great – has structure, so it is still figure flattering.  I see this paired with black denim, sleek black long sleeved t-shirt, and #10 – those amazing Stuart Weitzman 5050’s.

2. Denim that doesn’t feel like Denim

AG (Contour 360), Paige (Transcend), and 7 for all Mankind (Slim Illusion) have all recently come out with denim that well, isn’t denim… and I am obsessed.  Now, these are not jeggings.  They look like real jeans, but they are so comfortable and flexible, I can literally do the splits in the AG and Paige versions.

I got this particular jacket from Stitch Fix and have worn it a TON, love it.

 

4. Gray jeans

These are still dark enough to be flattering and not draw undue attention to the thigh area, but different enough to warrant being an addition to the wardrobe.

5.  Ear cuffs

There are a lot out there that are very “statement”.  I prefer the more understated versions like you see below.

8.  Jeans with zippers

Yes, I was also worried about the zipper placement, but these from Paige Denim are surprisingly not thigh enlarging 🙂

9. Handbags with a chain detail

Jimmy Choo has not only amazing footwear, but I love his handbags as well!

I have been obsessed with this Stella McCartney fold over bag for almost 2 years now… it is a classic but with just enough edge to keep it interesting.

10.  Over the knee boots

I know, this look is hard to pull off for a shortie like me, but the Stuart Weitzman 5050’s are a perennial favorite.
