Department stores are starting to advertise their fall collections (woot woot – Rachel Zoe’s first line is available now @ Bloomingdales, Nordstrom & Saks) and post-summer sales will showcase some great basics to add to your wardrobe, so take a look below at some of the trends to keep in mind while you’re out shopping for fall.
Faux fur: Whether you can pull off the old school Hollywood glamour of a full coat or just want some trim on your gloves or jacket collar, faux fur is right on trend this season. Keep in mind that faux fur is fairly ubiquitous during cold weather, so a classic, well-made piece can be stored and used again. Please note that I am not in any way advocating the use of real fur, all recommendations below feature faux products.
Mary Janes & colored tights: The runways for fall showed countless variations of classic Mary Janes and thick, colorful tights (Valentino, Miu Miu & Louis Vuitton in Paris and Marni, Fendi & Prada in Milano). Whether you like sturdy stacked heels or dainy kitten heels, MJs are a great investment for this season.
