I am so excited because Fall Fashion is starting to hit the stores and if you know me, you know I love Fall! What's not to love? Flannels, football, boots, pumpkin spice everything...do you need me to continue?! I am much more of a Fall fashion lover than Summer attire. To me, Fall fashion feels much more put together because of the opportunity to layer. 

I was asked by the local Macy's Alderwood Mall to style a few mannequins in preparation for their Fall Fashion event and I was so excited after checking out their Fall Lookbook. I took inspiration from the Lookbook, but then added my own flare and style. Here are the trends I'm loving below.

the trends

Plaid blazers: I love mixing them with unexpected items like these striped jeans {I am sort of obsessed with these jeans}. They are great for dressing up or down and can easily be worn for work or play. These belt bags are a huge trend for the season {cute and functional...yes, please}! I styled a mock neck shirt with feminine ruffle detail underneath. Style tip: tuck in a shirt all the way underneath a more masculine item such as a blazer.

Black and white: Classic, yet you can have some fun with it by adding pops of color like this red bag. I styled this cotton pencil shirt {so comfy and flattering} with this darling printed top and spiced it up a bit with a suede moto jacket {something everyone should have in their wardrobe}.

Wide leg pants: A must have this Fall, and perfect for work or play.  I'm loving the mix of athletic wear with something a bit classier like a crisp white button-down shirt. I styled these striped pants in two different ways because they were just too good!

Look #2: Vintage throwbacks: Not only are tracksuits making a comeback but so are Levi's graphic tees and bomber jackets, the 90's are back people, and I'm over here having my 90120 moment. I am also loving embellishments, like the stud details on this circular crossbody bag.
