WILD, WILD WEST(ERN) // BOOTS FOR FALL

western fendi bootswestern fendi bootswestern fendi bootswestern fendi bootswestern fendi bootsThe wild, wild west! Western boots and booties have to be the biggest trend in footwear this fall season. While some embrace all things western – think the pointier toe box, leather patch embroidery, front scallop, traditional pull strap and welt, others have just a hint of western inspiration. I recently invested in these boots and love the shape and coated canvas plaid. They are also offered in a shorter version here! If you are looking specifically for a well priced plaid boot these and these are my two favorites.

I am also considering picking up a pair of shorter western booties such as these or these. The bootie is typically what I grab to pair back to cropped denim and an easy sweater. Below I have rounded up some of my favorite western styles for the upcoming season!

Outfit Details // Boots: Fendi (shorter version here). Denim: Current/Elliot. Bag: Gu_de (shop them all here) – also worn here and here). Belt: Gucci. Skirt: RL (old). Blazer: Zara (sold out but see all my other favorites below).  PS: See all my other favorite fall accessories in a round up here!

FALL ACCESSORY TRENDS // FOUR NEW FINDS

FALL ACCESSORY TRENDS:


THE CHAIN BAG

The chunky chains on these midsize bags feel fresh and new for fall, and not just due to the chain detail, but for the many new-to-me designer such as THE VOLON and GU_DE participating. There are of course, neutral, pair-with-everything options available along with a few in this seasons trendiest hues (hello lilac!). And, best of all, with options at all price points, this is certainly one of the fall accessory trends that everyone can participate in. As you have probably noticed, I’ve been big on chain bags over the past few weeks, wearing them here, here, and even two at a time, here! You can expect that to continue right into the fall season!

A BRIGHT TIGHT

Bright tights are the easiest (and cheapest) way to change your look and add color this fall. This cheap investment packs a major punch, and with color and maximalism coming back stronger this season, is more relevant than ever! Whether with a short skirt to show a lot of color, or back to cropped jeans for just a peek, bright tights are a great way to accent color in your newest fall looks. You can see how I have tied bright tights into my favorite fall color combinations here, as well as how I have recently styled them in preparation for this fall here and here. For even more past examples of bright tights in action, check out these fun older posts, here and here! For bonus points pair them back to an open toe sandal.

COIN NECKLACES

To be honest, over the past few seasons, I have not been investing all that heavily in jewelry. This fall, with coin necklaces, I can sense a change (get it?)! Coin necklaces are equally appropriate back to open necklines (such as in this post) as they are resting atop chunky sweaters. They are super fun to collect and to mix and match, in fact, the more the merrier! This fall, they are the easiest way to achieve a layered look at an introductory price point. As an example, this option and this option ring in (get it again?) at under $30 and under $50, proving that coin necklaces are investment that won’t break the bank (okay, I’m done)!

THE STATEMENT EARRING

Everything comes full circle, and this season I am once again falling hard for statement earrings as one of the key fall accessory trends. I am loving autumnal shades and more interesting, playful shapes, and in particular, the return of hearts (these are probably number one on my wish list). From studs to drops there is something specific for everyone! This fall, I am going to challenge myself to wear statement earrings not just with evening looks, but in unexpected ways with more casual outfits!

RAINBOW BRIGHTS // SUMMER TO FALL

Taking a break from all my neutral looks…KIDDING. I love color and I love color in EVERY. SEASON. When I saw this tulle top at one of my favorite stores, Hampden, it was a no-brainer purchase. The reaction was a bit polarizing on instagram, but that is what I love about fashion. We all don’t agree on what we like, but it certainly gets the conversation started about what you think is beautiful, or interesting, or worth investing in. I like to have fun with fashion, and I think that this look embodies what I love about getting dressed in the morning morning. You can be a different person each day and you can put on items that reflect your feelings or how you want people to see you.

Sometimes I can wearing things that might be a bit challenging or not practical for everyone, but I hope when you come to Atlantic-Pacific you might get inspired to try something new, discover a new brand, a new way to style something in your closet, or even just consider how to use color in a look. The below is a round up of some of my favorite colorful and/or tulle items. This time of year can be challenging when it comes to inspiration. Like me, you might be somewhat sick of all your summer pieces, but know full well that it is WAY too hot to pull out your fall wardrobe. It is these odd in between times that I find myself reaching for more interesting, colorful pieces – and really challenging myself to push my fashion limits!
