With the crazy seasonal events to attend, I’ve been suffering from the “Don’t have anything to wear” syndrome. So I headed out to Forever 21 for my usual fashion fix and here’s what I came up with- I’m loving this season’s statement looks, from leather to metallics to generous splashes of red, so I styled up some key pieces to update my closet and get it Fall-Winter ready, just in time!
The little Red Dress:
After the classic LBD to last summer’s ubiquitous LWD, it’s the turn of the LRD to shine in the spotlight. Brazen, bold and absolutely beautiful, everyone from Marchesa to Valentino and DVF to Jason Wu have been painting the catwalk red and how!
I picked up a gorgeous crimson hued dress, nipped at the waist and paired it with an off-white envelope clutch and white- and gold pair of earrings. Simple and classic but sure makes a statement this season!
Leather will always be a Fall winter staple but this year the obsession goes beyond the regular jacket to skirts, tops, gloves and accessories- It’s everywhere you look! The likes of DKNY, Givenchy, Calvin Klein and Hermes have shown us just how amazingly sexy leather can be this season.
I didn’t want to go with the traditional black leather outfit because I have a ton of them already, but I picked up this leather skirt in a lovely shade of grape. Paired with a peach woven shirt and a dull gold choker necklace, I thought it made for an interesting combination and a different take on the traditional black leather look.
Metallic tones are tough to carry off but I’ve always wanted that one statement metallic skirt in my closet. Paired with this season’s favorite studs and spikes, the metallic look is way cooler that it ever was! Designers like Jean Paul Gautier, Jil Sander and Blumarine and Roberto Cavalli show us how to put a stylish sheen to the Fall winter closet!
Even though I’m more partial towards metallic gold, I opted for a cool silvery tone this time- just for a change. I found that it looked amazing against an electric cobalt blue top and a black cropped tux blazer- Perfect for a night on the town!
