Ok ladies- Here are some of my must-haves for fall/winter 2010. Some are staples for every wardrobe, some are fun trends that I am participating in- and think you should too!
The Cargo Skinny
Following the military trend- these are a must-have!!! Dress ‘em up with a pair of platform booties or dress down with some killer moto boots. I love mixing extremely feminine tops with these.
A Good Versatile Clutch
Hobo International, $109.99
Hobo knows clutches. This over-sized woven clutch is perfect for everyday- or a night out on the town. The neutral mahogany shade would complement most outfits! It carries all my paraphernalia…and more- which says a lot, for a clutch. Its a jewel in my book.
The Cashz, Comfy, Cool Dress
I adore this little number. It reminiscent of the wonderful world of Missoni- I cannot resist. Extremely Flattering on. Put a Belt on with it, some tights and riding boots and your good to go. Stick a turtleneck under it, and you might be mistaken as Claudia Schiffer. So chic.
The Metallic Party Dress
This season- metallic and sequins (I think) should be a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. It used to be an excess, or just for holidays, but not anymore! This elegant party dress is elegant and sassy. Pair it with black tights and Black Platform Pumps for knock-out status.
These scream ‘buy me!’ I love statement pieces-especially vintage-esque- and these fit the bill. These earrings, a LBD, and Gold Heels-and your out the door. Dunzo. Love it.
The [Faux] Fur Vest
Where has this vest been all of my life? Fur has been in style since the beginning of time- hello- caveman. With longevity like that, why not have it as a winter staple in your wardrobe? Plus- everyone will want to cuddle up to you-BONUS! This vest looks great with jeans or dress pants! I recommend pairing with a bright and fun printed top! To. Die. For.
A Feminine Coat
Even though I am a strong advocate of the utilitarian look, I am also a girlie girl and love my frills and ruffles. This coat is a perfect union of utilitarian and feminine. I think its an important part of each outfit- especially with this military trend- to add femininity. Whether it’s through your top, accessories, or outer layers, such as this gorge coat. We don’t want to look like we stepped right out of bootcamp- unless your Private Benjamin.
A Solid Pair of High Rise Jeans
Ok. So I’m sure some of you are thinking- high waist?- is she bananas? This isn’t your mother’s-or grandmother’s jean….and it surely isn’t those hideous high rise jeans that 1980′s brought us. This jean is heaven. It hugs in all the right places and is comfortable to boot! Love my ultra low rise jeans, but a good-fitting high waist jean can class and sass any outfit up a notch.
A Chunky Turquoise Necklace
Turquoise should most definitely be a staple piece in everyone’s wardrobe. Putting an art deco spin on it doesn’t hurt either. No matter what season it is, I always try to throw a piece of turquoise in with my outfits.
An Over-sized Sweater
An over-sized sweater cannot be avoided in cold weather. It’s an easy piece to throw on with a pair of leggings and boots. It’s a Cashz/ Comfy way to look put together without trying too hard.
A Good Belt
Just like I always ask the question- How did we survive before the cell phone era? – Well how the heck did I survive before the ADA Wrap belt era?? These belts are magical. It enhances most outfits. Dress a little to big?- throw a wrap belt on it. Fits fine now. Outfit a little boring? Throw a wrap belt on it. Dang, that outfit looks killer now. I recommend at least owning one…if not more. They come in almost every color under the sun…but the new metallics are my favorite. See previous post for wrapping instructions
