To my dismay, Fall is upon us! While I am not excited at the idea of cold weather, I am excited to layer my summer clothes and incorporate boots and sweaters. Also, with the Fall comes trends we’ve been waiting to wear since February. I’m going to give you a run down of the hottest, or in this weather, the coolest Fall ’12 trends.
This time, we’ll talk OXBLOOD!!
I’ve been waiting almost all year to paint my lips in a matte vampy lipstick like Selena circa the 90’s. But before I knew it, Oxblood was the color of the season and it was about wearing it in every facet; from shirts to shoes to pants to jackets. Here’s a few ways you can incorporate Oxblood into your wardrobe for under $100!
This shirt is awesome because the sheer allows you the chance to add colors and the embellished collar is right on trend.
This sweater is a nice sweater for the weather. I’m really loving the crew neck, which can be embellished with collars or bib necklaces or it can be worn in it’s most organic state.
This sweatshirt is a great way to bring this high fashion trend into super casual wear. The spikes are an incredibly fun detail that you can work into a more styled outfit or with sweatpants and Nike house shoes.
This dress is fun. It can be worn super simple or dressed all the way up. The cutouts are on trend and sultry while the flowing skirt allows a bit of innocence and fun.
These Corduroy skinnies are perfect for the season. It gives great texture, perfect fabric for the colder weather and a great shape for layering silhouettes.
This tailored blazer makes for an amazing outfit toppers. Over a monochromatic outfit or mixed with prints, or simply over a tee and jeans, it’s perfect for this weather. And when it gets colder, you can later it over a hoodie or a jean jacket which is a new fun trend to try.
I’m in love with parka’s… I think they are comfy, warm and along the lines of hipster chic. In this color, it’s more chic than anything else.
Flat shoes with a pointy toe is so on trend. In this oxblood color with the gold tip, it is chic, trendy and can be worn with a variety of outfits.
These Isabel Marant inspired sneaker-wedges are all the rage these days. And there down to $40 from $65.
I’m a high heel girl, so I had to find a beautiful pump in this oxblood color. These are great with several outfits; the embellishment can be fun or fancy; and you can wear them with tights or socks for the colder weather. AND guess what?? It’s $40 down from it’s original $100.
Of course you just can not forget the beauty products. Use Oxblood colors on either your nails or your lips or be a true vixen and wear it on both! I have several choices I love. These two are just one of the picks for lips and nails.
Or be a trailblazer like the ultimate trendsetter, Rihanna and wear the oxblood hair!
