style trend comment

Fashion's Fall 2017 color trend: red | see all the pops of red picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

Red has always been known as a power color and it’s not more apparent than in this season’s fashion offerings. Look around and you’ve probably seen all red looks. For some, it can be an intimidating color to pull off so I recommend starting small and building up your confidence. I’ve rounded up some great pieces that can be used to create eye-popping looks below:

1. Red blazer with gold hardware {3 colors, under $90} (I own this in navy and am eyeing the red, too)

2. Red velvet skirt {on sale – $12}

3. Convertible 3-in-1 Tory Burch purse (wallet, clutch, crossbody) {4 colors}

4. Red Hunter boots {11 colors} (ask for 45% off price match to this retailer)

5. Striped red cuffed shirt
{2 colors}

6. Red wool coat {3 colors}

7. Red ankle boots {4 colors}

8. Red sweater dress {under $40 and 4 colors}

8 Fall closet essentials under $80!

8 closet staples under $80 | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

With the official start of Fall starting tomorrow, it’s a good time to start looking at your closet to see what items you already have and what gaps there may be. I’ve rounded up what I consider closet essentials for you. A chunky sweater dress is always great for the cooler weather and can be transitioned to winter by adding leggings or OTK boots. A cardigan is a must in my closet and the longer length is great for both formal and casual looks. Add a little bit of a statement to your footwear with a leopard print bootie – treat it like a neutral and the pairing possibilities are endless. A long sleeve tee is always great for layering and is perfect for extending the life of your sweaters. There is a tendency to gravitate towards darker colors in the fall but a neutral tote can be used all year round. Olive green is a must have color and this vest is the perfect piece to transition your wardrobe. These mules are the best way to hold on to the summer weather and also embrace the new season. A light jacket is necessary and what better way to make a fashion statement than this classic moto design?


SHOP THE LOOK:

1. Burgundy sweater dress {only $19 and 2 colors available}

2. Beige longline cardigan {3 colors}

3. Leopard print bootie {under $50}

4. Grey layering long sleeve tshirt {3 colors}

5. Tan work tote

6. Olive green utility vest {2 colors}

7. Bow mule slip ons {2 colors}

8. Black moto jacket {3 colors}

Remixing closet staples are essential to keeping your outfits unique and dynamic. A navy blue fit and flare dress is considered a closet staple for every woman.
