I’m so thrilled to be teaming up with my favorite department store, Nordstrom, to share 2 fall looks representing some of falls biggest trends!
SHOP LOOK 1:
SHOP LOOK 2:
These 2 looks I’m featuring today both encompass some of my favorite fall trends!
TREND NUMBER 1: VELVET (MY PERSONAL FAVORITE)
My VELVET heels in both looks are very comfortable believe it or not and both are very reasonably priced making them definite fall must-haves!
My black velvet heels in look one are by Vince Camuto, one of my favorite shoe designers, he makes high quality shoes at affordable prices, what else do you need for the perfect shoe?! These black velvet ankle strap heels look very sexy on the foot and are minimal which I love because that means they literally go with everything! The best part, these heels are amazingly comfortable because of the block heel and the heel height is only 3.5 inches. They come in 17 colors, yes they do, and they’re under $100!
My velvet platforms in look 2 are so AMAZINGLY fabulous, so fab I just had to take them with me to NYFW! These too are extremely comfy because of the massive platform and the block heel. I love the pattern of gorgeous fall colors, they go so beautifully with all of the burgundies and golds that are so in this fall. These chic platforms run true to size and they come in solid black suede and blue velvet which I love too! These fabulous heels are only $129.95, quite a steal for such an amazing shoe!
My velvet smoking jacket in look one was love at first sight for me! This super cool and edgy jacket would be so perfect for a date night or girl’s night out. I wore a black lace bra under it, but you could also wear a lace cami or simple black tank underneath for a more conservative look. It runs true size, I’m wearing an XS and it’s on MAJOR SALE making it just under $55, grab one before they sell out, you’ll be glad you did!
My velvet handbag by Rebecca Minkoff in look 2 is another great way that’s not too over the top to incorporate a trend into your wardrobe this fall. It also represents the metallic trend with the cool silver chain strap which I adore! This chic velvet handbag will bring any look to the next level and the price point is amazing!
TREND NUMBER 2: STATEMENT SLEEVES
This top is so fun and chic and the detailing on the sleeves makes quite a statement! My bell sleeve top in look 2 is one of my new favorites for sure, I love the rich burgundy color and the shoulder baring neck line! It runs true to size, I’m wearing an XS and it’s fully stocked in all sizes. The best part, it’s only $55, such a good deal for such a chic top!
TREND NUMBER 3: HIGH RISE DENIM
Both my jeans in look 1 and 2 are high waisted and I love them both and here’s why: High waisted jeans makes your legs look longer and consequently thinner because the waist line sits up higher. For that reason alone, who wouldn’t love high waisted jeans?! I’m a HUGE fan of high rise denim, in fact, I won’t even wear low rise any more if that tells you anything. The gray jeans in look 1 are by Mother and are extremely comfortable. The gray wash makes them so versatile they literally go with everything! My black jeans in look 2 are by Citizens of Humanity, they’re one of my new favorite’s, I love the distressing and they’re also very comfy! I took mine to my tailor and had them cut the bottom to a step raw edge hem (making the hem shorter in the front). I’m wearing a size 25 in both jeans.
TREND NUMBER 4: SHADES OF RED
The number one color we’re seeing everywhere this fall is red and I’ll have to admit I’m not a huge fan of traditional red. However, you can really wear any shade of red and still be on trend! Burgundy is a darker shade of red and it’s by far by favorite color to wear in the fall and winter months! My chic burgundy top in look 2 is a great representation of this trend tailored to my personal taste.
TREND NUMBER 5: METALLICS
From metallic leather jackets, to silver booties and silver jewelry, the metallic trend is another one of my favorite’s this fall! My silver choker in look 1 represents this trend well as does my silver metallic chain strap on my Gucci handbag (similar here) and the one on my Rebecca Minkoff velvet handbag. An easy way you can incorporate trends into your everyday looks is with subtle things such as handbags and accessories as I did in both looks.
A special thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!
