We had the most gorgeous weather week last week and it sort of made me wish that summer wasn’t coming to a close. But I also went to Neiman Marcus at the Somerset Collection for their Fall Trend Preview event in advance of the Fall Trend Event (which starts today) and, for the first time, I really got excited about shopping for a new season.
Besides craving the more consistent routine, slightly cooler mornings and football Saturdays (yes!) that fall brings, I’m also now really eyeing a few key pieces to add to my closet. I love that the fall trends are looking really rich and vibrant, versatile and super wearable depending on your location, lifestyle and overall fashion bravery (I know some of these are easier than others for me).
Folklorica // This one is sort of “Rachel Zoe Chic” to me. It’s lots of embroidery, patchwork, lace and fringe. Flared jeans, which are also a big trend for fall, also fit quite nicely into this one. Some of my favorites are this creamy caramel shirtdress, this flowy dress and how incredible (albeit totally out of my budget!) are these boots?

White Out // I love winter white. Love it. The nice thing with this trend is that you don’t need to worry about your whites matching exactly, but rather you can put together a bit of a wintry mix of textures and shades. I really like this sheath dress for work, these creamy faux leather skinnies and this crossbody bag with a bit of fringe.

Modern Fur // Whether you’re a faux fur or real fur girl, this is a trend that you can really do in small or large doses. This one can also be a bit of a splurge trend, depending on what you’re really looking for. I will say though, that I have had my fur vests forever, so the purchases are worth it to me (especially now that we live somewhere that winter lasts quite a bit longer). I love these little fur earmuffs and also this super soft Joie vest.

The Last Layer // I think this one is my very favorite! One of the things I missed when living in Houston was the opportunity to layer and wear lots of cool coats (oh and remind me I said that when I’m posting Instagram photos with “Feels like -25 degrees). This trend is all about the toppers, including ponchos, wraps and dusters. I love a good long sweater, and even at my height, I think they’re always an essential!

As I mentioned, the Fall Trend Event starts today at Neiman Marcus and ends on Wednesday, August 19. With a $350 purchase, you get a pair of Lulu Frost earrings or cuff links. Happy Shopping!
