This fall has been non-stop and with the holidays fast approaching, I don't see that changing any time soon. Between camping, seester visits and work—I am ready for the winter slow down.
As I sat down over the last week to begin my Christmas list, and yes I have a Christmas list, I realized there are so many trends I am obsessing over for fall/winter 2015-16.
When Lady Gaga entered the room in American Horror Story in her red caped gown, I knew I needed one. My selection may be a bit more practical, but you're kidding yourself if you think I wouldn't jump at the chance to wear a red caped gown in my day to day life.
Tom Cruise circa Top Gun, not crazy jumping on Oprah's couch. I love the bomber jacket. Personally, I see it as a replacement for the black or camel blazer over your New Years Eve dress or with destroyed denim and a white tee running around town. Get one, now. You won't regret it! I love the LA Hearts option above from PacSun as well as this black Banana Republic staple.
Stone and Crystal.
I die for Olivia Palermo's Guest Bartender on BaubleBar. That Occult Collar? Gimme. I've always loved stone incorporated into my wardrobe as I am a bit bohemian, but if you're not sure just yet—try this adorable Lapis Blue Ring, Lapis Tassel Earrings or the Ombre Pyrite Collar Necklace for starters. You'll be rocking the crystal collar before you know it, and I'll be cheering from the sideline.
Cross body bags.
Small bags are STILL in. As much as I'd hoped we'd go back to the oversized tote for every occasion, we are still seeing the fashion world embrace the smaller is better bag trend. But, lucky for us ladies, there are so many adorable new additions to select from. I'm seriously lusting after the Gucci Soho Leather Crossbody Bag, but love this adorable Prada option as well.
For me, fringe has never left. In terms of my style, I love to incorporate fringe into an overall bohemian look. However, over the last few years, it's been more of a leather look in my wardrobe. This year, suede fringe is all the rage. I am obsessed with this navy suede fringe jacket from Nordstrom. I literally get giddy thinking of fringe! Ah!
What girl doesn't love a little glitter? I love this metallic trend...in moderation. The metallic/glitter dresses, suits etc. are a bit too much for me personally, but if you love it then rock it. I love this pant option from H&M. Perfect to incorporate the trend but not over the top. Want to stick with black denim and make it casual? Try this v-neck tank in silver.
I can't wait to start holiday shopping, you know it comes with my own surprises as well! What are your favorite trends this fall/winter?
