This Season's Top Trends - My Picks

Our first trend for the fall season this year is English School Girl. I have found three adorable and afordable outfits in stores that fit this trend perfectly. This argyle cardigan from abercrombie looks smashing with a bold yellow skirt from jcrew.

Next we have a hot argyle vest from oldnavy paired with a tweed pencil skirt from newport-news.

Our third and final English Schoolgirl outfit is a smart, preppy cardigan from Delias over a pleated silk skirt from forever21.

Our second trend of the season is Boho Chick. I was able to find some great pieces that will bring out the Boho in any chick. My first two pieces are a gorgeous embroidered tunic from urbanoutfitters and a pair of comfy jeans from hollisterco.

Our next Boho outfit is for the dressier bohemian. It consists of a long printed maxi dress from nordstrom and this great leather jacket from newport-news finished off with some super high boots from alloy.

The last boho chick top I found was this fresh print top from the buckle. It can be paired with a casual pair of jeans or a long skirt and boots for the perfect bohemian look.

The third trend this season is minimalism. The three pieces I found are both simple and chic. This grey boatneck dress is from LaRedoute, the rose sheath dress is from chadwicks and a great navy draped dress from calvin klein at macys.

The next trend this season is a fun one. Romantic Vampire is just as saucy as it sounds. I was able to find some great affordable pieces that were perfect for this season (not for halloween). The first outfit I put together starts with a great not so basic white shirt from Newport-News paired with a modern twist on the pearl necklace. I then added a victorian style jacket from chicstar and a pair of sleek skinny pants from express. To finish off the look I was able to find these lace ankle boots from ninewest that go perfectly with the mood of the outfit.

My next romantic vampire outfit was found almost entirely at newport-news. The long sleeve lace top is beautifully accentuated by this nicely fitted jacket. The streamlined stretch jean adds texture and drama when paired with a bowed ankle boot I found at alloy.

Accessories this season are a must. Hats are the number one accessory to have and I have found
quite a few that are definitely up to par. A black city fedora from banana republic will give a nice edge to any menswear outfit.

The felt cloche from forever21 is so sweet it could be worn to church. A plaid farrah fedora from for love 21 looks great with almost any outfit.

Newsboy caps like this green cabby from windsorstore or this red tweed hat from jcrew (a similar one can be found at the gap for much less) will make any outfit fun.

This juicy couture slouchy newsboy beret from neiman marcus puts a little diva in anyone and the Eugenia Kim satin cloche from neiman marcus is so unique, it screams chic.
No matter what your personal style is, this season has a hat for you to go with every outfit. Be bold and brave. Try on a hat!
