Two Dos for Fall Fashion

By Lindsey Son on September 6, 2013

With the first week of September coming to an end, many of us have witnessed a transition from summer clothing to fall clothing. It’s only right that everybody is putting away their sandals and pulling out their booties. This fall, there are so many fashion trends to follow, but I believe there are two that stand out the most. The two dos I have for fall fashion are faux leather and military-inspired jewelry and clothing.


Faux Leather

We’ve been seeing faux leather everywhere for quite a few seasons now. But this fall, it is all about building that leather with other materials, and choosing to use leather as detail rather than focus. You can choose a variety of colors when it comes to leather, but classic black is always a great choice. Here are a few affordable pieces that truly follow this trend:

Forever 21 Faux Leather Trim Chiffon Shirt $19.80

Charlotte Russe PU Trim Ponte Skater Skirt $16.99

H&M Sleeveless Dress $34.95

I have to throw in one pricey item because it is that wonderful.

Nordstrom ‘Elyssa’ Leather Peplum Minidress $258.00

Military-Inspired Jewelry and Clothing

Where do I even begin? The military-inspired look is all about wearing different shades of olive green in a unique and edgy way. It also consists of extravagant gold buttons and skinnies. When you first hear military, you might think camouflage. But this fashion statement isn’t limited to your typical military look. It’s a feminine twist on the entire idea, and that’s what makes it so exciting. I am absolutely obsessed with this trend, especially when it’s worn with the faux leather. Here are some more affordable pieces that really stand out:

Forever 21 Military-Inspired Spiked Denim Jacket $47.50

H&M Coat with Quilted Sleeves $59.95

Forever 21 Street-Chic Oversized ID Necklace $7.80

Once again, I have to toss in a pricier item because it is also that wonderful. And beautiful. And perfect.

Henri Bendel Bond St. Fringed Collar $228.00

One final thing: have fun with your style. Don’t forget to mix and match the many trends going on. There are absolutely no limits when it comes to fashion. Do not feel as if you are stepping out of your boundaries by trying an edgier or more chic look; you’re supposed to try new things. Happy Fall Fashion!
