Just like that September 2016 is upon us, which means fall is just around the corner.
And if you’re anything like me, a new season inspires you to refresh your life in some way.
I love using clothes as a way to refresh. It’s such a fun, creative and personal way to express yourself and lift your spirits.
Refreshing your wardrobe for a new season may seem daunting and complicated, but I really happen to like simplicity, and I want to help make a wardrobe refresh as simple as possible for you.
The most important thing to remember when you’re looking to incorporate seasonal trends, is that you don’t have to go overboard. You don’t have to wear every trend out there. Instead, take a look at all the trend reports online and choose one or two you can incorporate into your current wardrobe. These trends should also fit your current style profile best.
But today I’ve already done the research for you! I’ve gone through all the popular trends for fall 2016, and chosen the top four that I think are totally wearable and easy to incorporate into your current wardrobe!
Trend #1: Gold Metallic
By now you have to know that I have a slight obsession with metallics & gold, so you can imagine my excitement when I discovered that gold metallic was one of the trends for this season! You can go bold with a beautiful pleated skirt or a bit more subtle by adding an accessory, such as a gold metallic bag.
Trend #2: Pink & Yellow
I was REALLY excited to share this trend with you because of the unexpected pop of bright colors, during a season that usually has a darker color palette. I love the contradiction and I love these 2 colors together. It’s a great way to avoid the all-black-syndrome most of us tend to fall into during the fall/winter season.
Trend #3: Chokers
You may or may not have noticed what a big comeback chokers have been making for the past little while. Well they’re sticking around for fall too. So if you’re looking for a real simple way to step up your style game this season… experimenting with chokers is the perfect way to do it! Try out some fabric or metal chokers to see which you like better, and then play around with layering.
Trend #4: Bags with Embellished Guitar Straps
This trend was probably the most unexpected one I came across. It’s not a huge statement-making-trend, but it is a detailed and ornate one. Remember, style is all about the small details. This trend, like chokers, is a small and simple way to incorporate a new trend into your wardrobe.
Which trend(s) do you think you’ll be experimenting with first? I’m pretty excited to look for some bags with embellished guitar straps and try a few on for size!
