Fall 2017 Fashion: What to Buy and a Few Things to Skip

fall 2017 fashion trends

It’s FALL! OK, it’ll be fall in like ten days or so—technically it’s still summer, but anyway. While summer is my favorite season overall, fall is my favorite season to get dressed for: the sweaters, the coats, the layers, the jackets, the boots, the accessories! But sometimes shopping for a new season can get a little overwhelming—either you buy way too much or you buy nothing because you’re so overwhelmed with the choices out there. Now while our personal styles will of course differ, I’m here to help you try to narrow things down.

There’s no need to buy a ton of new clothes for the spring/summer season. You can simply upgrade your faithful standbys with some fun new accessories. I used to be of the “let me run to the mall and spend like $500+ on new clothes for the season” school of fashion, but those days are long and gone…lol. I’m over here watching what I’m eating so I can shed the pounds I gained because I DO NOT WANT TO HAVE TO BUY NEW SPRING CLOTHES…lol. OK—I’ll buy a *few* things, but they will be VERY strategic purchases. But you can make what you have work over and over and OVER again with key accessories. Here are a few to check for this spring/summer.

Restyling My Fave Trench for Early Spring

I bought this trench from Monki in Stockholm last summer during their July sale. I think I paid maybe $20-30 for it though I was originally eyeing it on ASOS for over $100 before I spotted it in Monki. I also wore it in this style post last fall. I. LOVE. THIS. TRENCH. I made a boo boo when I first got it home and burned the bottom of it when I ironed it because it was super wrinkled from being in my suitcase. I like to pretend the iron burn isn’t there so if you somehow spot it in these pics, pretend like you don’t see it, too…lol.

TSABD Trend: The Non-Neutral Bag for Spring

I used to be someone who owned 50 million bags and while I still probably own more than I need, I like to have a smaller, more carefully edited bag stash. This means that I need my bags to be of good quality, really suit my personal style, and they need to go with a majority of the clothes I have in my closet.

And for my style, I can’t just have a simple black or brown bag—I need COLOR. And yep, bold colors can very much play as “neutrals” when it comes to your bag stash. Down with this line of thinking? Keep reading to check out some bags that fit the bill.

Wear this to Work Tomorrow: Upgraded Basics with Accessories

Happy Wear to Work Wednesday, ya’ll!

So one thing I’ll almost always buy even if I don’t need it right away are statement accessories. They’re enough to totally transform the basic pieces in my closet so I get even more mileage out of my clothes. My favorite statement accessories include faux fur stoles and belts.

A good statement belt can do many, many things for your wardrobe and that’s the focus of this week’s Fashion at Work ensemble. I like to peruse places like BCBG and ASOS for great statement belts but I keep my eyes peeled at all times no matter where I am for great belts.
