Pre-Fall Preview

With the heatwave finally breaking in NYC, it got me in the mood to actually think about the fall trends that are emerging in stores and magazines despite the melting temperatures. Here are some of my favorites from the runway and how to make them wearable on the street.

I LOVE this look with the boxy oversize top and blousy skirt. Make sure to add pops of color to make these traditional pieces appear modern,

Here are some finds to re-create this look for everyday wear.

I think this color is one that looks flattering on almost all skin tones. Pair structured pieces with some edgy accessories and you will nail this look.

Try looking for vegan leather pieces as they are more animal friendly and are much less expensive than the real deal! Here are some cute ideas to create an all “leather” look without seeming too edgy.
