My favorite fall trends.

Trends in post: Costume vintage jewelry, short boots, printed pants, & big sweaters.

As fall semester is quickly approaching for most of us (and the limited time for all of the packing, book ordering, & etc), I thought now would be the best time for a fall outfit post! Here are some of my favorite fall trends and newer things I got for the approaching school year. Also, my friend Shannen took all of the photos (and they look AMAZING), so check out her site that I will post at the end of the blog… enjoy.

Outfit: Boho Chic

I love this outfit because of how comfortable the pants are. Therefore, I thought it would be a great choice for early morning classes and more ideas for comfortable clothing for those (gotta love them) 8 AMS..

Tip: If you are wearing baggy clothing (like the pants and  the sweater), pick a tighter tank or shirt to wear underneath the sweater so the entire outfit does not look so big on a figure. Also if you are wearing baggy pants, always pick shorter boots to go with them. With taller boots, the extra fabric around the knee ends up folding over.

Where I got this look?: Pants & Necklaces: Goodwill, Tank: H&M, Sweater: (older) Pac Sun, Boots: Vintage, Purse: (older) Free People, Bracelet: T.J Maxx

I styled several more outfits for fall trends posts, so follow any of the media accounts for when the posts will be up!

Trend Alert: Tribal Prints

Hello, hello. After a very successful launch of the blog, lets keep the posts coming! The trend that I have two outfits for is one of my absolute favorite, tribal prints.

Outfits

The black and white vintage jacket that I paired  with the high-waisted Cheap Monday black pants and (of course) all Pylon Jeffrey Campbell’s was only $10  at my work!

Tip: With Tribal prints, there are normally several different colors. This is why, I am a huge fan of pairing the “tribal” item with one bold color, and one dull color for completing the look. The pants outfit with the orange shirt and the shorts outfit with the turquoise necklace. Bold vs. dull. 

Where did I get these looks?: Outfit with pants – Pants: Cheap Monday from Urban Outfitters, Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell, Shirt: My design , Jacket: Vintage, Necklace: Vintage Betsey Johnson, Bracelet: T.J Maxx Outfit with shorts– Shorts: (old) Forever 21, Shirt: (old) Free People

Trend Alert: Plaid

I don’t know about all of you but even as my age increases, Teen Vogue is still my favorite magazine. Year after year, I still flip through the old issues, have piles on piles of them stacked in my room, and refuse to have it any other way (even though it drives my dad nuts). Sometimes, I still even watch some of the older seasons of The Hills, just to see the events with Teen Vogue. With that being said, in Teen Vogue’s last July issue, they did a feature on “plaid pants“, where I got the inspiration for this outfit. My two best friends, Sarah and Melissa helped me with the pictures. Sarah took them (are they not AWESOME??) and Melissa tried to give me advice on how to not look so angry in every shot (I’m 5’1 for a reason.. so I would NEVER model). Regardless, they turned out great. Thank you girls for all of your help!

Outfit

Trend: Plaid pants & Denim Motorcycle Jacket

This has to be one of my favorite outfits I have ever put together and instantly posted it on my Instragram (my personal one is haileyy_nicole, Delight’s Closet will have one soon!). The pants and jacket believe this.. I bought both items SEVERAL years ago from Free People. I think I was in still in middle school, (good taste starts young, am I right?) This outfit is smooth, clean, and flows nicely is because of how it matches. (Read below).

Tip: See how the details in the jacket have red and the plaid is red? This small detail connects the two items together. While adding accessories to your outfits, match them. Like in the Instragram post below, the yellow juicy bag and belt match together or in the actual pictures, the vintage gold purse and the vintage gold necklace match. This is where you can add your own edge to your outfits (the sheer, vintage white top in all pictures/black floral headband) without making it look like its “too much”, because the other items connect. 

Tip/Trend: Another feature that Teen Vogue was all over were shorter boots. Not a fan of short boots? (Neither am I, hello height!) Pair them off with socks that you can fold over top the boots.. I do this all of the time with my favorite skiing socks… Yep.

Where I got this look?Pants: (old) Free People, Gold Purse & Necklace: Vintage, Black Boots: (old) Juicy Couture, Brown Boots: Vintage, Long-sleeve: Vintage from Goodwill (YES, MY FAVORITE PLACE TO SHOP. BELIEVE IT!) Headband: Free People (on sale, for $10, holla!)
