I have a special treat for you guys today! Alison from Puppies & Pretties is taking over to discuss her favorite fall trends. Alison is my favorite fashion blogger because she has a creative eye and shares reasonable pieces for my budget. She might be kicking my butt at College Pick’em, but I won’t hold that against her. 😉 Go say hello!
Hi Bourbon, Lipstick and Stilletos readers! I’m excited to be here from Puppies & Pretties to talk about my top 3 fall trends. While I’ll always be a warm weather lover, there is something exciting about being able to layer and mix things up during fall.
If there is one trend that is synonymous with fall, it is the blanket scarf. Can you really go wrong with an article of clothing that can double as a pillow or blanket? While plaids are the norm, more patterns are coming out every year. Wear these scarves with just about everything, but it is often best to go simple with the rest of your outfit to let the scarf shine.
Vests are the perfect layering piece. They add an extra dimension to outfits. You can choose from puffer vests to tuxedo types depending on the look you are going for. Dress up an outfit with a tuxedo one, or stay warm with a puffer. I’ve been known to wear a vest every day of the week, they are just so good!
Over the Knee Boots
While I’m sure we would all love to own a pair of Stuart Weitzman boots, most of us can’t justify spending a car payment (or two!) on a pair of boots. Lucky, there are all sorts of brands that are now carrying OTK boots. I’ve had good luck with these ones from DSW. OTK boots are perfect to wear with tights and a shorter dress/tunic (think big sweaters!). Or of course, if you are tall, it’s exciting to finally have boots that get up to your knee 🙂
What fall trends are you looking forward to the most?
I hope you come visit Puppies & Pretties!
