If you haven’t already, pick up the Fall issues of Vogue and Elle. These extended concept issues are a great way to stay ahead of the coming trends for fall. Kristen and I have been pouring over them the past few days looking for new ideas and trends. Although most of our budgets’ cannot accommodate the Roche over the knee boots, we can glean a lot of great inspirations from these publications and make some minor tweaks to your existing wardrobe. My two biggest recommendations for taking your summer closet into fall are the two b’s: boots and belts.
Every woman should have a variety of boots. Really there’s no limit to the number, but try to aim for something in black and brown. This way you can work with everything. Normally I recommend investing a little more in a quality boot. A well made boot can always be reheeled and last years and years. This season though, Target has a lovely little brown, wedge heel number that is stylish, well-constructed, comfortable, and affordable. For less than $40 this boot is a steal; pick a pair up immediately!
Another trend Kristen’s trying out for fall is the wide belt over a long sweater and perhaps a dress. This is a great way to extend the life of your summer frocks a few months. A floral, bohemian dress looks great under the warm layer of the long sweater and wide belt.
