Fall is one of my favorite times of the year…in theory that is. Houston does not have much of a fall. It’s either really hot or semi-bearable. There is not much of a happy medium. That being said, as we part ways with the summer months, there’s an incredible change of color that comes with the change in seasons that I absolutely love. If you have done any window shopping recently, you have likely noticed the darker and bolder colors and prints that adorn the mannequins.
This week I stopped by Tootsies to get a glimpse of some of the local trends that will line the streets of Houston. Reds and blacks were a prominent color scheme throughout the show, which I absolutely love.
Another major trend is full on fur. Fur has been pretty prominent in trends virtually year-round over the past couple of years. From the Fendi fur monster handbag charms to stilettos, fur has been featured in the most unexpected places. I think it is so important to sport the fur in moderation. I don’t think Kim Kardashian will agree with me on this one. Have you seen her fur “shower slippers?” I refuse to post a picture for your reference because I care about all of you and want to spare your eyes.
Now, these looks are all about the color blocking combined with the fur love, but they are paired in a way that does not scream desperate. I love the subtle red pop in the Les Petits Joueurs handbag pictured in the center as well as the Fendi fur piping on the handbag featured in the photo to the right.
Other trends featured were lace (which is always a go-to) and embroidery. From Valentino to Fendi, embroidery is everywhere. Handbags, coats, boots…you name it!
I am a huge fan of embroidery myself. I sported the trend with one of my favorite Valentino handbags. I paired it with a Kate Spade dress and Christian Louboutin heels.
As the temperature drops, the layering can begin. Now is the time to mix and match your favorite trends. I am all about power color combinations and embroidery this season. Have a favorite trend?!?
As another week comes to a close, I hope you all stay safe and sassy. And remember, Karma is a betch! 🙂
