Cape May I?

Don't fret if you feel like you haven't gotten prepared for the cold weather. Outerwear was a huge focus on this seasons runways, therefore it will be in abundance at you're favorite local department store or boutique. The challenge will be selecting which style, print, and size works best for your frame. Have fun with color and prints as plaid is all the rave but be mindful of your chosen silhouette, as proportions will determine if it was the right choice. Capes especially can be tricky, be sure the length and color work well within your fall winter staples.

3 Stripes and You're Out

The uniform is a great template for reinventing for your personal wardrobe. Wearing a uniform inspired ensemble no longer represents a clothing of one nature, its no longer utilitarian. It is however a great template for creating a polished tailored look. Begin by selecting a color scheme, but remember to keep it simple, by selecting no more than 3 colors. Then choose a uniform style such as military,  sports, or boy/girls scouts from which to draw your inspiration. The final product will delight your modern and contemporary heart.

Trending Topics: Wears Your Religion?

Fashion this season will fall under the holy grail, quite literally.  Religious representation in fashion is nothing new, however fashion goers will be encouraged to depart from their sinful nature and worship the fashion GODs. Praise this trend by embracing monastical  items such as contrasting black and white, buttoned collared or Mondrian shirts, floor length skirts with dress coats and lastly the fedora is a great way to add some flare to this contemporary style.

StyleTip: Incorporate a Burst of Color into Your Fall Wardrobe

A little color goes a long way. Brighten your fall wardrobe with a burst of color. Neon yellow, pinks and greens are a great addition to anything from the basic color wheel spectrum. Its also a great recipe for spicing up your heavy woolen threads, typically worn during the fall/winter season.
