Fall Into Style Part 2

Today is the last day of summer, so alas I bring you more Fall 2010 fashion.

1.  Sequins

Sequins are not just for New Years or parties anymore!  They are fun because they can spruce up a very simple outfit.  If you aren't big on accessories, then adding a sequined piece may be perfect for you!

Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere added stripes and a simple blazer for a casual chic look.  For an even more casual look, she paired a sequined skirt with a plain blouse and riding boots:

2.  Oxfords

 This outfit is a "shop by look" outfit from Forever 21.  Oxfords can be worn so many different ways! If you could pick between brown or black, I recommend brown (you can mix browns with a lot of colors).   These are only $20 from Target:

 3.  Capes

 Images from Sartorialist I am not too sure the whole cape trend is my thing, but it is in style this fall.  If it's not you're thing either, you can never go wrong with a classic camel colored trench:

This is a vintage London Fog coat that you can get at Archives on Etsy!  Click here to check out this coat as well as other cool vintage items at Archives.

4.  Knee High Socks

 Image from Stokholm Street Style.  This is another trend that might be too trendy for some.  You can find these types of socks anywhere for cheap.  If done correctly, I think it could be pretty cute.

5.  Leopard Print

 Leopard print can go a long way.  It's very classic from a faux baggy jacket, to a belt, to shoes.  Leopard is fun because it can be dressed up or down, depending on the item, and it is always very classic!  You no longer have to associate it with old ladies, or prostitutes for that matter!  Are you still stand offish to the idea?  Maybe try a leopard clutch or simple pair of  flats to start off with, and see how many things you can easily pair it with.  These are $20 from Target:

 I hope I have given you more ideas on some classic pieces that you will see a lot of this fall.  Always remember, "Fashions fade, style is eternal." - Yves Saint Laurent
