Even though it was just 95 degrees in L.A. I am still desperate to whip out my winter wardrobe. Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I’m certain by then I’ll be able to wear my favorite trends for this season. You’ll definitely want to have these staples in your closet this year!
This is the absolute “it” color of the season, consider it like a burgundy, but richer in dark brown. You will see this color popping up everywhere and a great pair of oxblood slacks will look great with your mint green tank left over from the summer and a cute jacket.
if you still don’t own a great leather jacket now is the time, but stick to a cute motor jacket or cropped leather jacket(especially if your shorter, the crop will give you length). But don’t just limit yourself to a jacket, a great leather skirt or dress is all the rage right now. I would invest in real leather, as fake leather will just look cheap and wont last. Leather is truly something that will never go out of style. If you’re looking for something more affordable check out bebe.com
Velvet is back but make sure its not overdone, a pair of velvet slacks, sleek velvet jacket, or even a velvet dress. I love velvet in deep rick hues like of course oxblood, burgundy, forest green, dark purple, and navy blue.
Spice up your outfit with metallics, even sweaters are getting a metallic sheen. The key is not to over do it, a simple metallic cardigan or sweater is just enough to really make your outfit pop.
Last year was the riding boot, but this year it’s all about the booties and the trendiest this year are beige suede ankle booties, and velvet wedged booties. If you’re on a budget check out forever 21’s new shoe collection, they have both!
Alright ladies you know what time it is, get shopping! Winter is in full swing and who says you can’t look great while you’re freezing your tootsies off =)
