Cropped Pants for Fall

This is a great look and I love that cropped pants are back. This is a great way to show off your lower calves and ankles and look current for fall.  Here is the look:

Fall Fashion here we come!

The stores will soon be flooded with Fall clothing and it is helpful to know what is chic for the season so you can start making your list of what to look for.  For example, fur is on trend so look for one piece with some fur detailing.  Also, sweaters are super chic for fall so pick one in a current shape and color.  Plaid is also going strong, so something with a tartan is fun to have on hand! The list goes on.  There is no reason to buy an entire wardrobe full of trendy items; pick and choose and find the right thing to add a pop to your wardrobe. This is something I help my clients with; building a classic wardrobe and then adding a few pieces each season and taking things out that no longer work.

Some fun pieces to add for Fall (many of these are classic building blocks that happen to be on trend as well...many of these things are timeless and classic).

Fall inspiration:

Zappos and some great finds

I have been looking at so much fall fashion lately it makes me dizzy and I have found these shoes from Zappos that are super chic--they are knock off's of much more expensive shoes and they are such fair prices:

Sam Edelman Justin bootie (looks similar to the Acne of earlier post)
