You Ask For It, You Get It!

Ok, sooooo – I was asked to speak to a women’s organization about Fall Trends.

I am very excited about it. I do two things very well.

1. Talk

2. Talk about Clothes/Shopping/Trends

So I hope that I am not spoiling the discussion but I started putting my ideas together.

This may be a two or three blog process but here is a start to fall trends.

So you know, I don’t always like ALL of the trends out there.

These are the trends that I can see easily fitting into my wardrobe as well as my friends and clients wardrobes.

Fall Trends to Buy….

1. LEATHER – I keep repeating myself but this may be my fav.

Leather leggings, Leather trimmed blazer, Leather skirt.

“The more appealing woman has a bit of an edge to her that makes her alluring.”

2. Dresses/Suits – Yes, the Mad Men look is still in.

I love a form fitting dress or a beautifully tailored suit with sheer hose and a pair of super high heels.

A great addition to your work wardrobe or for all my ladies who lunch.

Prim Appeal with an Urban Edge.

3. Peplum – I love anything with a peplum.

I think they hide a multitude of flaws.

4. Military Jackets – Anything double breasted.

This will look great with jeans for the weekend or dressed with a great pair of slacks for work.

I love this Free People Military Jacket- it hits on all of the trends double breasted, peplums, and cable knit

I especially like anything army green. It is one of my favorite colors to wear.

5. Western Wear – Anything with suede, shearling or denim.

This is definitely an easy trend. I love this denim shirt from j.crew. It would look great with the leather skirt or leather leggings.

Or a great boucle skirt for casual Friday.

These booties are really cute. Be careful with this trend.

My suggestion is unless you are 6 feet tall with skinny skinny long legs buy them a little more narrow at the top so your skinny jeans with lay just over the top of them. If they are wider at the top and you tuck your jeans into them they will make your legs look shorter and stumpier.

And noooooone wants this!

Happy Shopping, I’ll be back with more fall trends shortly!

Colored Denim…

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE jeans. LOVE LOVE LOVE. I could wear jeans every day of the week and be a happy girl. Now we all know jeans typically come in any version of blue, traditional black, grey, and white.

But little by little in 2011, we started to see a new denim trend: Colored Jeans. It all started last summer when I broke down and bought the red Jbrand Cotton Twill Jeans.

I’ll have to admit, I was slightly hesitant at first. But after a few days, they became my favorite jeans of the summer and fall. I could wear them with the classic black blazer or a comfy striped shirt.

When fall came around, I was thrilled to see the colored denim trend was here to stay. I found some super cute Paige green colored jeans to take me into the crisp fall days – seen here being worn by the fabulous Olivia Palmero

So I cannot tell you how excited I was the other day to get an email from Seven for All Mankind about MORE colored denim!!!

 Its the perfect transition into Spring! Which I must admit, I am craving at the moment. The thought of neon jeans does give me flashbacks to the 80’s – but with the right key pieces,say a great navy blue tank top and some fun gold jewels, you would be ready for spring in a polished and modern look. Even just looking at them brings a smile to my face.

So tell me – what trend were you hesitant about that you simply cannot live without now?

XOXO, Jennie
