Time to step into fall fashionably armed with key pieces of the season.  Embrace a style escapade of rich textures, patterns and prints.  If you haven’t already embarked on your seasonal shopping adventure, let’s begin.  Here are a few trends to get you started and inspired!

Style spotting

The shoe sometimes makes the outfit.  Trust The Fashion Plate (and shoe aficionado) on that style statement.  Offset a simple silhouette with a pair in a wild print.

Color crush trend alert: Burgundy

Oxblood, bordeaux, wine…it doesn’t matter what you call it, it just matters that you rock it.  This rich, opulent shade is having a major fashion moment.  Pair with jewel tones or earthy shades and everything from houndstooth to leopard print.  On a budget or just don’t want to invest in new clothes?  Accessorize with burgundy boots, a pair of pumps or a purse.  Buy some polish, as burgundy nails look great for fall.  Or try a burgundy blush, lipstick or eye shadow.

Time to Shine…A night-out necessity

Sparkle is everywhere this season, whether you want a touch of shimmer or head-to-toe glow.  A little sparkle goes a long way!  Sequins are showing up on casual shirts to miniskirts that transition from day to night.  If you’re saving your sparkle just for special occasions, think again!

Take stylish cover

It’s not time for a heavy coat in the south quite yet.  Pull on a chic transitional piece that’s perfect for those early days of fall like a city poncho, elegant anorak or a cardigan coat.

Fashion mandate (for some)

Add straps, jewels & unexpected cutouts to your style lexicon.  If you’re seeing a lot of this look on the screen lately you’re not alone.  Whether you incorporate what may seem like “red carpet glam” into your own wardrobe, it’s fun to see and take note of what’s trending hot!
