Friends, I’m caving. I know it’s not technically fall and I said that I wasn’t going to talk about fall fashion just yet, but I’ve cracked (please note, this does not mean that you will see me in a winter coat before November, as that is my completely arbitrary timeframe in which I feel it is acceptable to breakout said coat).
Now that we’ve cleared up any confusion, let me tell you what I’m loving for fall in the lightweight coat category. From my picks you may surmise that lots of neutral tones are on my mind. And you’d be right! But the pièce de résistance for me is the duster. I’ve seen dusters styled on a few blogs and they are irresistible…at least in my opinion. This lovely addition to any outfit is transitional, versatile, and functional. Okay, I may have made that last part up, but it does work for any season; can be worn over formal workwear, skinny jeans, or dresses; and functions to finish off an already amazing outfit. So, it has earned a spot on my fall must-have list and should be on yours, too.
The other item joining my curated ranks this year for fall is the cape. I never thought I would get behind this trend, but seeing a few of these beauties in action made me realize that I need one in my closet. It doesn’t get any easier than throwing on a cape and heading out the door on a chilly morning. And if all else fails, you can pretend you’re Superwoman!
And lastly, gingham. I’ve seen a lot of gingham styles over the summer, but I think it’s better suited for fall and spring. I can foresee buying a gingham coat later in the season…perhaps around November?
What trends are you loving for fall? Anything on your wish list that you can’t wait for?
