Jewel Tones

Colors takes it's place in jewel tones this fall. Deep green and purple, elegant orange and yellow.
On the runway these trends tend to take a more dressed up (and more expensive) look.

When it's hot outside and cold in trends.

Today it was 111 degrees in Austin, TX. I spent the day in the mall, Gap had a one day 50% off sale, Forever 21 was practically giving stuff away in their sale section, and it was airconditioned. I am ready to pull out all my sweaters and jeans, tights and knee highs, fall is just around the corner, at least, trend wise. The weather, however, begs to differ. Fall officially starts on September 23, but I doubt it is going to feel like fall, so I'm out to find the looks for fall that suit summer weather. If you are lucky enough to have almost fall weather, or just cant wait for fall, then you can use these trendy looks for these in between days.

Trend Alert: Moccasins, Ponchos

Quietly flooding shops and quickly invading the streets, moccasins and ponchos are edging their way into fall trends. These more fall appropriate tribal trends find a lot of inspiration in Native American patterns and styles such as moccasins, ponchos, woven patterns, etc. 
Fall tribal trends created a strong grasp on the runways this fall and are now rushing into the fashion world.

Back To School Outfits

It's almost time to head back to school, so be ready with a stylish yet affordable outfit that is ready to wow.

This first outfit is casual and chic, not to mention comfortable. You look good without being too over the top.

The second outfit is more summery, the floral skirt adds a little bit more femininity and playfulness to the outfit, and the color block top keeps it sophisticated and bright. This look is great for the summer weather that refuses to leave.
