Fall Fashion Must-Haves, You Really Must

Hey-Hey-Hey settle down! The always gorgeous Gwen Stefani covers Harper's Bazaar September 2012

I keep having this reocurring dream that I’m back in elementary school, sitting in the cafeteria awkwardly having lunch with new classmates.  Then I wake up, a tiny drip of perspiration, glad that I’m an OG (old girl) and it was just a nightmare. Bahahaha!  Let’s not relive that again!  I do enjoy this last burst of summertime heatwave but regardless of the hot, hottt weather, there is nothing better than making a list of Fall Fashion Must-Haves.  Perhaps you can make your checklist with moi?  Shall we?  We shall!

  • Houndstooth – Think of houndstooth like a black and white checker, on a diagonal zig-zag gone on steroids.  Houndstooth is a classic retro-print which is best suited in a dress, a lovely chiffon blouse or a miniscule print on pants.  To modernize and give this look a daring pop, pair it with brights such as canary yellow, fuschia or cobalt blue. 

Vince Camuto does an oversize houndstooth dress with a bow-tie neck. Very chic!

  • Kick Up your Patent Heels – Who doesn’t adore a patent heel, non?  There is something so Mad Men, so sexy secretary about shiny heels.  I am quite partial to almond toes, however, the pointy heel is back! I always say, if you’re going to work a “look,” commit to it.  Both look very sleek and elegant paired with a slim pencil skirt or well fitted dress trousers.

This is the most glorious shoe perfection to me - the shape, the platform, the sheen of the black patent leather. The Brian Atwood Platform Pump. *Insert choirs of angels singing

Yeow. Love me some animal print! Loving the unexpected twist of a black patent toe and zipper detail on these Michael Kors Pumps.

  • Let Them Have Jewels – I love embellishment which means the return of the statement necklace, sequins, decorated tunics, dresses with ornate beading, the list goes on… This means we need to fill up our after 6pm social calendars to wear all these fantastic shimmery, sparkly pretty pieces. 

Even though Olivia Palermo is a socialite mean-girl, she does style herself quite exceptionally. Her statement necklace collection is covetable but Mr. Joe Zee should have fired her from ELLE on The City.

Lanvin Fall 2012 is a bit Zsa Zsa/Russian Princess but will be a HUGE inspiration for the kind of over the top, family heirloom-esque jewellery that we'll be seeing this Autumn.

Turn the page in your notebook, there are so many to list.  Fall Fashion Must-Haves to be continued
