Fashion week has come and gone, fall is upon us, and for a fashion fanatic like me this is the best time of year. For every leaf that falls a new opportunity arises, style opportunities that is. This time brings about every fashionista’s favorite challenge; how to transition those summer favorites you’re not ready to let go of into cool looks worthy of the changing temperature.
I had the pleasure of meeting and collaborating with Kim of Main Street Boutique in Fishkill, New York this past weekend to show off some fun ways to embrace the season and hop on those trends you know you don’t want to miss out on. Not only does she carry some of Anne Koplik Design’s classics, but she also only stocks her shop with items made here in the United States!
If we haven’t already said it enough, chokers are a huge deal this season and they’re not going anywhere soon! Not only are they a versatile accessory, but they also pair perfectly with that off the shoulder look thats all over both retail and the runway. Even better, pair it with a denim off the shoulder dress like this one from Main Street Boutique for a daytime look ready for anything your day throws at you!
Pins are back, and just in time for all the layers that come along with the fall and winter months! A classic element that adds a little sparkle to any outfit, pins are perfect scarf season…but why stop there? Twists are all over, so emphasize that little something that makes your garment stand out by sliding a pin through the folds like I have with this versatile take on a classic black body con.
Hello?! Is that the weekend calling?! Hitting the town this Friday night? Theres nothing like a little black dress like this one Kim pulled. The runway has taken it up a notch this season with a whole lot of lace and swinging elements like ties and fringe for days. Why not wear that fringe around your neck too? This necklace falls effortlessly, making a playful statement perfect for day or night.
Not yet ready to let go of summery dresses? Me neither! This boho patten dress with belle sleeves is the way to go as you ease yourself away from the freedom of your breezy basics. Just don’t let pattern stop you from wearing that statement necklace you love, make your whole look the statement!
According to the runway, bigger is better this season in regards to earrings… and they mean BIG. If you’re more of minimalist like I am when it comes to bling, but still want to sparkle, try some sparkling drops and a matching bracelet to compliment your every day essential hoodie shirt like this one. Packs a sophisticated punch that’ll still turn heads, and be much kinder on your ears!
Belle sleeves aren’t just for dresses, they’re everywhere! The 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s are back and in full effect, but you don’t have to go all out to be on trend. There’s nothing more timeless than some classic sparkling studs paired with a statement top.
