in, what’s out, and how can you pull it all together for Fall? Read on for my quick & easy cheat sheet of everything you need to know to be in style this season!

This week, I was honored to be a guest stylist on KBOI Channel 2 News’ Idaho Living show. We brought in some great models to show us hot styles from the Village at Meridian, but for the short length of the TV segment we only got through about HALF of what I wanted to convey to the audience. (It’s so hard for me to STOP talking about fashion, ha ha ha!)

The fashion world in general is having a major revolution right now, and the rules are all up in the air. Skinny jeans? Wide-leg cropped trousers? Overalls? Backwards button-up shirts? White after Labor Day? Yeah sure… Whatever you want to wear, wear it!!! Style it, rock it; just be YOURSELF. ❤ ❤ ❤

On the show, and here on my blog, we’re talking about some of the hot things I’ve seen start trending over the summer, and continue into our fall fashion season. Below is my full list of Fall Fashion Trends, with pictures & examples, that YOU can take to the mall or your favorite local boutique for shopping reference. And be sure to watch the full episode right HERE to see how we styled each trend on our fabulous local models! ENJOY!!! 

MAD FOR PLAIDPlaid is always classic! From jackets to shoes, all types of plaid are in style this season. Find your fave & rock it!

COLD SHOULDERS

On the show, we talked about how shoulders are the big trend thing right now. Off-shoulder, one-shoulder, cut-outs, and cold-shoulder. Anything goes! For my daughter, her school dress code requires a three-finger width on her shoulders, so this cut-out top from Francesca’s was perfect for her!


SASSY SHOESfall fashion sneakers stylespygirl

I spotted the sneakers above in Amsterdam, where E V E R Y O N E wears tennis shoes, flats & boots. Get wild, get creative, and have fun with your sneaks this season!

Also hot: ankle boots, motorcycle boots, high-top sneakers, white shoes for men & women, metallic and velvet footwear of any kind.

PUMP UP THE VOLUME

From sleeves to pants & skirts, get comfortable with comfort! Culottes, wide-leg trousers, accordion skirts, and mega-sleeves are all the rage.


WHAT’S UP YOUR SLEEVE?

Like this picture above from Who, What, Wear shows us, this is the season to wear your attitude on your sleeves! The bigger the better, but ruffles, laces, and more demure takes on this trend are fine as well. Whatever works for YOU!

HAUTE HUESFall fashion colors H and M stylespygirl

It’s red, red, red everywhere right now! But also pink, lol. Seriously, all sweetheart shades from traffic-stop ruby red to Millennial pink (like the Coach bag below!) are totally acceptable.

FLOWER POWER

A Petite London Blogger With a Very Big Dream!

recently spent some time in London,
reporting on fashion trends there for summer and fall, and the fun privilege of meeting up with another blogger! Her name is Debonita Deore, from the blog Elegantly Fashionable.  Debonita specifically blogs about style for petites, and is passionate about her mission to make the fashion world give ladies of her stature more recognition… and choices! To this end, the petite powerhouse is single-handedly working to launch Petite Fashion Week, first in London and then across the globe.

By definition, petite simply means clothing designed to fit women who are 5’3″ or shorter. Many women think it’s about weight or bone structure, but truly, it’s as simple as height! Did you know that 40% of all American women are 5’3″ or shorter? And 25% are 5’1″ or shorter! So why does the entire fashion industry create clothes based on the 5’4″-5’8″ woman??? And unlike American stores, there are few to no retailers in the U.K. that offer free or inexpensive alterations. Debonita aims to change all of that.

In February, she is throwing a networking event to launch Petite Fashion Week, and already has almost 200 people signed up. Her goal is to launch her show the following February, and send a powerful message about the diversity of beauty to the fashion world!

It was an honor to meet you, Debonita! XOXO

you happened to read my
“Top 5 Trends of Spring 2014” article for Snow Bunny Magazine, you’ll be familiar with this second major trend I’m covering on the blog today. (The first one, why you need a white jacket, is here!)

I am personally crazy about Fit & Flare dresses, and oh so happy that they’re a hot trend item for Spring 2014! My body type is a Strawberry, which means I’m busty on top and narrow through the hips. Fit & Flare dressed are perfect for my body type, because they’re form-fitting on top and voluminous on bottom, which balances out my proportions! I spotted this gorgeous lace fuchsia dress at The Threaded Zebra in Eagle, and just had to have it!!! 

Fit & Flare dresses can be great for any body type; it’s all about the proportions! They’re perfect for slimming-down curvier hips & bum; a woman who’s a Pear body type should aim for a higher waistline, which will emphasize the bust and elongate legs. A Fit & Flare dress with a slender belt can also help define curves and a waistline, if you’re a Celery Stick or Apple body type. (Not sure which type you are? Read my tips for how to dress for Body Type here!)

Nearly every girl can wear a fit & flare dress – is it any wonder it’s such a hot trend this spring? Enjoy the flowers, the sunshine, and the pretty dresses of summer, my lovelies!!!

XOXO,

Tokyo Style: A Fashion Post From Japan!

My super cool friend Becky recently visited Tokyo, Japan. I asked her for two small favors:

1. Go shopping!

2. Take pictures!

She’s not back yet, but sent me these awesome photos of local fashionistas, as well as a breakdown of What Typical Fashionable Women are Wearing in Tokyo these days!

Love you, Becky – thanks for your fab fashion journalism, on my behalf, ha ha ha!

XOXO,

tried to take a few pictures to show you how people are dressing here. Sorry the quality isn’t great. The whole Harajuku cosplay scene has moved away from its traditional location so I wasn’t able to get any really fun costume pics. I think there’s one Gothic Lolita in there.

Everyday wear seems to be short skirts, shorts or tunics with leggings and either platforms or short boots. Most of the women under 40 I’ve seen look like there are too many things going on at once, but occasionally I’ve seen an outfit that is mostly subdued with just one crazy thing to accent, and it looks good. One thing I realized I haven’t noticed at all is jewelry, so it must be rather subdued.

I was in the equivalent of a Buffalo Exchange the other day and my first thought was “Tanya would be in heaven.” The whole style just seems very you, delicate or crazy prints, flowy, tops, and boots 🙂 

That’s what I’ve got so far. If I see some more good stuff I’ll send it along.
