Hey, Stylish!

Capes are coming back this winter and  I am so happy to score this 70’s cape that makes any outfit feel so Fall-ready. I am a big fan of capes because it gives that royal elegance to any look, however, it definitely adds up the volume to body proportions, that is why I advocate for thick textures that hold the form like Chloe and Alberta Ferretti below. You can also experiment with the length of the capes and wear them over other coats and jackets.

Total Vintage and Furry Sandals

Hey, Stylish!

The furry shoe is the very controversial trend, but I really love it.  I truly believe that the shoe makes the whole outfit and you can rock the furry slipper or feather mocassins with anything…even the workwear, leather jacket or the evening gown. Though, I would really recommend wearing it with simple and clean silhouettes to balance up the wild look. You can also choose the closed toe models to highlight the quirky nature of this trend. I leave you with some inspiration:

Puffy Sleeves and Pleated Assymetry

Hey, Stylish!

The exaggeration of the forms and silhouettes is the most important trend this Fall. You can notice a lot of shoulder pads and puffy sleeves at Dior, Balenciaga, and other runways. If you want to wear this trend in life, I would recommend wearing it with a straight bottom rather than fitted one, to make look extra edgy and careless.

The exaggerated forms always look better in neutral colors and black because you can really appreciate the intricate silhouette in a clean color.  I already had created some of the dramatic sleeves outfits previously, so you can get some inspiration from there.

I leave you with great examples to take note of:

Hey, Stylish!

Fall is officially here, but it is summer time in San Francisco, so I am still not ready to give up on bright colors! Watching the latest Chloe collection, I am so inspired by that Hippie Chic vibes that the famous fashion house is famous for.

If you want to experiment with the Hippie chic, start with something very easy, such as long ruffled dress ( mine is vintage 70’s) and platforms.

You can also play around with the silhouettes and proportions selecting extra flared jeans, and oversized flowy blouses.

Here is Chloe inspiration for you:

Hey, Stylish!

Check print is so hot right now starting with a classic jacket cut that has been spotted everywhere at the NYFW. I decided to give a second life to my  90’s dress jacket and pair it with a head to toe vintage. However, you can pair the check trend with almost everything and easily dress it down and dress it up. For instance, pair it with a ripped denim skirt and moto boots for that edgy look or with sequined jeans to glam up the classic cut. I created a couple of collages for your inspiration:

Hey, Stylish!

The gingham has been so popular Spring 17 and this Summer that you can see this print in any store and collection. I decided to pair my gingham Victoria Beckham x Target suit with the polka dot Jeffrey Campbell platform to bring some edginess to the very preppy and polished print. I would recommend pairing the graphic prints with a pop of color, for example, mega trendy red color to enhance the contrast. I also put together some of the outfits for you as a fresh perspective how to transition your gingham into Fall season:

Hey, Stylish!

You know that I am in love with the kimono trend recently because the kimono converts any outfit into relaxed, effortlessly chic one. Even at the hottest day in San Francisco (which is almost a nonsense) my vintage kimono was keeping me cold because of its silk and cotton blend. I would really recommend finding your perfect kimono in the local vintage stores because the quality of them is much higher than the modern ones. You can always find kimonos in a robe section in almost any thrift shop. For some runway inspirations, check out Gucci and Alice+Olivia:
