The jumpsuit that works now and later

Because this jumpsuit has good coverage it is the perfect thing to take you through Indian summer into fall.  I love the color that is on trend for fall as well as the fringe on the sandals that is still going into fall season. When I put outfits together I look for an interesting element that brings dimension and interest. These sunglasses by Thierry Lasry are a perfect element.

What to buy now and wear through fall

A few fall season's back Club Monaco hit it out of the park with great cuts and pieces that looked and felt expensive. Some of their pieces are still great but I am not down with paying $200 for a polyester top that looks like I got it from H and M. I raided the sale and picked out only the best cuts, shapes and materials that you can buy now and wear through fall. Buy quickly because some of these things are selling out as I type! xo
club monaco sale
Cashmere navy sweater (a great piece to find on sale!)
silk shell (good cut, runs big so go for the XS)
Grid lace crop top--perfect with the leather skirt to its right)
leather skirt (a fall gem wear with a shorter top such as above)
Norra sweater (LOVE the color, cut, real materials--perfect for fall)
Perilla lace dress-great through fall with Isabel marant booties or moto boots
Hat attack hat (this literally sold out in the 5 mins. I was posting it)
Loeffler randall pumps (great color, heel height, everything)

Fall Trends 2015..Editors picks

When I do fall fashion for clients I am looking for themes, colors, shapes, patterns that will make them look current and chic. It is these things that are important and then I can find the perfect pieces for their body type and price range. I don't love all of these things together but am inspired by certain elements. Soft grayness, Red!, skinny scarves, victorian lace, houndstooth, army green, boots! So much fun I can hardly wait for fall! See below for the editors of Elle's favorites then keep your eye out for these trends come September.

Jenni Kayne Fall 2015

Jenni Kayne is one of my favorite LA stores. It seems I am always popping in since it is in Brentwood Country Mart where I seem to always be. I love her colors, cuts, fabrics. All of it. Expensive but worth it for a few killer things. Here is a peek at her fall line.
