3 must-have fall trends

Fall is on the way and that can only mean one thing. It's time to pack away your summer staples and make room in your closet for the onset of fall fashion. Here's a look at my must-have trends for fall '15.
Pairing a leather pencil skirt with an easy knit will be one of my go-to looks this season. Great for work (or play) a leather pencil skirt is versatile and fun to wear. If pencil skirts aren't your thing, there are literally hundreds of other ways you can play with the leather trend this fall. Leather dresses, leather tops, and of course, the infamous leather jacket will all be style staples this season.

// Leather Style Tips // 
Play with texture: Pair a leather top with a cozy knit sweater for a fresh look this fall. 
Mix and match: Throw a leather jacket over a graphic print dress for an easy look with a little edge.
Go head to toe: Friday nights will be way more fun when you wear a leather dress. 
Just a touch: Add a pop of color to your fall wardrobe with an oversized leather bag or dip a toe into the trend with an embellished leather wallet instead. 



I am all over the printed dress this season, especially if it has long sleeves.  Bonus points if it has pockets too! Dresses are so much fun to wear because you can literally throw them on, add ankle boots and you're all set. My favorite go-to boutiques for dresses in the city are: Queen Anne Dispatch (Queen Anne), Horseshoe (Ballard) and Pipe & Row (Fremont).

This season more is more and embellishments everywhere are having a major moment. Don't worry about going overboard. This trend is all about having fun and adorning yourself in apparel and accessories that you love.

If you want to dip a toe into the embellishment trend try a pair of statement earrings like the ones shown above from JJCaprices.com. These beaded drop earrings have a fun fringe detail and are handmade in Israel by LK Designs. 


Colorful, embelished shoes are an easy way to add color to a fall outfit. These Sophia Webster shoes are colorful and have a gorgeous satin texture making them fun and interesting. Plus, the Mary Jane-style shoes with a sweet ankle strap are big this season. 

I'm an equal opportunity girl when it comes to embellishments. Fur, feathers, sequins, and semi-precious stones are all fair game as far as I'm concerned. If you have statement shoes you've been meaning to wear, now is the time to take them out and dust them off. It's dress up time dolls! Go bold, or go home and most importantly, have fun with it.
