My Fave Fall Trends !!!

Well Hello There!!

As seasons change, we are all starting to decide what our fall look will be this year….I chose to look at Elle magazine for some inspiration.  At first it was overwhelming but then you have to decipher the crazy runway looks, and everyday life, and you, the real everyday woman…

So to give you a headstart, I tried to narrow down all of their trends to my

Fave Five:

  1.  The Color Redred outfit

Power it up girls, Red is officially the color for fall 2017, states Elle Magazine.  Add a splash of red, or Head to Toe in red, for the bold sexy look of red!!

2.  70’s Plaid

Just like the fresh plaid, you’re going to love this vintage floral print making a come-back from tops to gowns and personally I’m LOVING it!!

5.  Mid-length Flouncy Skirts

This trend is so fun and easy, and probably the most versatile!  You have so many different looks depending on the shoe it’s paired with, flats, boots, heels, etc…Oh and did I mention… Flattering for ALL figures !

Kentucky Derby on a Texan Dime

kentucky-derby-fashion-f05b5a7744cd3202The Derby itself, I can’t say has or will ever interest me much, but the sheer femininity of the fashion sported at this occasion is too much not to blog about! It’s all so Southern Belle and very refreshing! Maybe not as everyday fashion of course, but it’s fun to play dress up every now and again and pretend you’re off to meet Mr. Rehtt Butler. Am I right ladies?

Some may choose to have a Kentucky Derby themed party or simply decide to dress up for any special occasion. At any rate the hat is definitely key. Stated directly on the official site are some interesting pointers to achieve a flawless look.

Dress or Hat –  Which Comes First?

You can exhale – there are two answers here!

Some will say that you absolutely get the outfit first. Then you design your hat to go with the outfit. (The argument here is that it’s easier to custom design a hat than to “make” an outfit to go with a hat!)

Then there are those who say that you must definitely purchase, create or design your hat before picking out the outfit.

Most often in this case, matching the dress (or outfit) to your hat involves personal preference, however keep a few things in mind in getting dressed:

* If your hat is having a pattern party, keep the dress design simple. * If the hat is simple and elegant, keep the outfit simple also for a classy look. * If you want a funky outfit, keep it consistent and accent the hat most of all! * If you have long hair, showcase a ponytail slightly to side or keep it down to one side to highlight the color on your face.

Now we did say this was Kentucky Derby on a Texan dime so to keep the outfit under a certain budget you may want to visit your local consignment store to find a hat. It doesn’t need to be flashy because you can always create an elegant hat using materials from around the house and garden. Not to mention make a visit to your local craft shop for your decorating needs.  This will create a buzz with your friends and family, perhaps even win a contest at your local party.

Remember to wear fresh Spring colors and you will be the belle of the ball!
