{5 fashion trends for fall}

Welcome to a brand new week everyone, and the last week of August believe it or not! Looking into September, I'm getting kinda excited about fall fashions. Evenings are already requiring sweaters around here, and I can smell autumn in the air. On that note, here are 5 items that are definitely on my radar for fall:
 
The velvet slipper, or smoking slipper, is all the rage lately. Comfy and cute, I'm particularly smitten with those embroidered with a chic crest {like the ones below from Nine West!}. Preppy all the way.

Olivia Palermo; Nine West
 
Damsel in Dior; source unknown
 
I adore navy blazers! Just a tad softer than black, but still super classy. I picked up a schoolboy blazer from J. Crew on my recent trip to Seattle.

Gwenyth Paltrow; Damsel in Dior
source unknown; Karla's Closet
 
Animal print won't be going anywhere! Amazing how a dash of leopard never fails to make everything look fabulous.

Olivia Palermo; The Blonde Salad
 
I don't even need to justify this one. A smart coat completely speaks for itself, don't you think?
 
 
Last but not least, leather in general will be everywhere. Leather pants & leggings are smokin' - but if they scare you just a bit - you can also find fabulous coated jeans that look like leather, like these below from J Brand.
 
 
Any fall trends you can't wait to get into?

Count me in for a statement coat! Love anything animal print so the leopard is right up my alley anyway. Good post!

LOVE, LOVE your blog!!! Would love it even more if you would promote animal friendly clothing more. It shouldn't be worth an animal's life for us "to be in style". Faux animal skins, etc are just as gorgeous. Even more so because they were created in order to save but mimic nature's beauty

Gap has the velvet shoes as well and for a smokin good deal may have to get some. And just bought myself a leopard sweater!

I love when you post fashion trends cause they really inspire me. I'm horrible at trying to put an outfit together!!! It was really nice seeing you on Saturday. I'm heading out now to try to find a cute little blazer like the one Gwenyth is wearing. Have a great week!

For someone like me who can be fashionably challenged, this is perfect. I LOVE the velvet slipper and navy blazer. I did just purchase calf hair leopard print shoes! And a tweed jacket....looking forward to wearing them. Just need a new statement coat!

Such a great post! Smoking slippers are definitely on the top of my wishlist for fall and I've also had my eye on the ones from Nine West! Instead of pants, I'm looking to add a leather skirt to my wardrobe, but haven't yet found one I'm in love with. And statement coats? The ones pictured are lovely!

I really love the leopard style dress and even though most of the Black Leather Trench Coat For Men are still fashion in cwmalls.com

You are so spot on!!! I'm happy to report that all I'm missing is a statement coat.... This season shouldn't be too hard on the wallet :)
