We are at the cusp of change, as we get our last moments at the cottage, and start to get ready to go back to school. But before you run to your local mall and randomly grab everything that is shiny, take a look at what the trends are for the season. Some of the items you might already have in your wardrobe. Winning.
If you’ve been on trend this summer, then you’ve been sporting your ankle boots with your dresses and denim shorts all season long. If you need a refresh in your wardrobe, I’d suggest picking out some Black Paddle Grains Moccasins that you’ll be able to sport all fall long and then some. I love the look paired with a long sweater and a beanie for a cool, casual vibe perfect for your first day of school.
Wide Brim Hat
We’ve been seeing wide brim hats for a while now, especially during the early summer festival season, but no need to toss it in the Goodwill bin, because it’s here to stay for fall. I love seeing it paired with a boxier wool coat to even out the weight of the hat. Pair with dark skinny jeans, a chocolate fringe purse and the Russet Harvester Suede Moccasins and you’ve got a look perfect for school and for a casual weekend date.
Thanks to all the Native-inspired fashion having entered mainstream fashion, we have seen a resurgence of an appetite for all things turquoise that hasn’t been witnessed since the ‘70s.
Just be sure to buy the real thing, and not pick up cheap knockoffs from your local chain store. If you can’t go to the southwest, try Etsy or EBay for some vintage gems. To add to that authentic vibe, pair it with a Deerskin Purse with Fringe. I love it with that pop of colour that you can get away with for at least the month of September. Just do it.
