10 Fall Fashion Trends I Totally Support

Ahh, the changing seasons, the cooling temperatures, the falling leaves, the new excuses to shop for “must have” items for your closet. I have mixed feelings about fall fashion. On one hand, I love to have a good reason to blow some money on pretty things. On the other hand, I personally find fall fashion trends to be hit or miss. Colorful fur coats? With what money? Ankle length leather skirts? Whut. Why. Embellished socks? WHO’S GOING TO SEE?! But there are some fall trends that I am totally buying into and dammit, I think you should too.

Shop The NYFW Trend: Everything’s Coming Up Palm Prints!

One of my favorite trends out of NYFW so far are the array of leafy palm-prints from designers like Tracy Reese and Yigal Azrouel. From full-on palm trees to more abstract, close-up fronds, palm prints are a sophisticated alternative to regular ol’ florals. And you don’t have to wait until spring to wear them — palm prints are already everywhere in stores, so what are you waiting for?

Shop The NYFW Trend: 13 Ways To Get Your Gingham On

Gingham was a big component in Diane Von Furstenberg’s NYFW runway show this week, and while her designs won’t be available until spring 2015, there’s no reason why you can’t rock the hell out of some gingham now. Here are 13 pieces to start with…

One Pair Of Culottes, Three Ways To Wear Them

WAIT! I know what you’re thinking — that culottes are just baggy, long shorts that cannot possibly look good — but please hear me out. If you like full midi skirts, you should really consider trying culottes because they give you the same silhouette — dramatic volume with a tiny waist! — without the risk of exposing your ass should a gust of wind attack. The key to wearing culottes is balancing the proportions of your top and bottom half — because culottes are so voluminous, you should wear them with a tucked in or cropped top. Heels, of course, look great with culottes, but I totally think you can rock them with flats too. I immersed myself in the mindset of a culotte-wearing fashionista and came up with three ways to wear this pair from Topshop. Click on to see all three outfits and then tell me if I’ve managed to convince you to give culottes a shot.

Shop The Trend: Tassels!

Weaving is my current obsession and I’m so excited because this weekend, I’m taking a workshop with THE It Girl of weaving right now, Maryanne Moodie. Her woven tapestries make such great use of color and texture, and I love how she ties in chunky tassels throughout each piece. Tassels are everywhere in fashion these days too, adding a folky, handmade vibe to clothing, accessories and shoes. Here are a bunch of tasseled pieces I’m loving right now.

Been There, Bra-ed That: The Trials Of Finding The Right Bra

I’m the kind of girl who wears a bra all the time.  I haven’t gone completely bra-less since 1993. My version of going bra-less is a bralet under a shelf bra, with my arms folded, propped upon a pillow as I watch Netflix Sunday mornings. Unless I bring my pair to the party, good luck finding my goodies through a maze of mixed support.

To the annoyance of many women with big or small boobs whose bras are like a blankie of comfort, designers who create tops or dresses that are strapless, backless, or with cutout details are malicious. What the hell kind of bra am I suppose to wear under that halter crop top? I don’t want to have to worry about my tits going left when I go right. God forbid there’s a strong, cool breeze. Anyone else feeling a tad nippley?

To all the women who feel comfortable going bra-less, keep doing what your doing. For the rest of us, let me save you some time and explain the reality of each of these popular solutions. Keep reading »
