This Fall’s Hottest Trends and How to Wear Them in Real Life

It’s the beginning of October. Starbucks has Pumpkin Spiced Lattes, and it’s time to start scouring the stores for your kids Halloween costumes. Most importantly– It’s time to get your wardrobe up-to-date and transition out of Summer and into Fall!

Last week I had the honor of attending a fabulous shopping event at Bloomingdale’s, in Boca Raton, FL., hosted by my good friend and stylist Gabriella Muller

 

 

Guests dined on a delicious, healthy lunch from Forty Carrots, as we learned about the latest trends in perfume, sunglasses, handbags, and clothing. Check out the video below so you can really get a feel for the event. Then keep reading, because I’m going to show you how I would wear some of the trends in the presentation to make them a bit more relatable than the model looks in the video!

So cute right?

I absolutely loved the looks Gabby showcased at this event. But, I want to break it down for you real simple…. I have highlighted some of my favorite fall trends and styles below. Check them out, and let me know what you think! I would love to hear what your favorite looks are this fall season.

Camouflage/ Hunter Green/ Military Inspired

I just love camouflage! I am so happy it’s “in” this season… this is a super thin cashmere sweater in muted greys and blues. It’s really pretty. I’m also wearing camo here.

 

 

Velvet/ Burgundy

Velvet is on everything for fall…from jacket, to tops, and bottoms! I fell in love with thisburgundy Paige moto jacket and it will definitely be in my closet. I also fell in love with these AG velvet ankle leggings in black paired with this adorable printed cami for a date night look:)

Embellished Jeans

I am a jeans addict. This fall there are so many ways to spruce them up! Whether you choose a pair with a frayed hem, or tuxedo detailing down the side. But, these I had to try. They are Current Elliott, boyfriend style, embellished with pearls. This outfit is a head turner! FYI, they run big… These are a 26.

 

 

Bell Sleeves

What’s up your sleeve? Because it’s all about big, flowing, exaggerated sleeves right now! Whether it’s a satin blouse, or a button down for work– you can wear this trend! What do you think of it?

 

 

Embellished Bags

Pearl is a huge trend right now, and I’m so happy Gabby pointed out this Chanel inspired Kate Spade version! This color is very hot right now, and the pearl makes it even more special. It’s gorgeous in person, and would make the perfect addition for a “trend” accessory this fall.

 

 

Red

If you normally shy away from wearing red, try it this season! Gabby talked about red head to toe… but I know many wouldn’t be comfortable with doing that. I stumbled onto this Karina Grimaldi mini dress and tried it. This is the type of red that works for me! As a petite woman, too much material doesn’t look right, but a short red dress does! And I love the bright color… perfect for fall 🎃🍁🍂You will have to call the Boca Raton store and ask for Gabriella Muller for this piece because it’s not on the site!

 

 

Florals

There was a ton of floral prints… from long dresses to blouses. They are beautiful and feminine. I loved this blouse the moment I saw it at the store! You will have to call the Boca Raton store and ask for Gabriella Muller for this piece because it’s not on the site!
