Five Fall "It" Trends from the Runway


SHOP TRENDS FROM THE RUNWAY

1. HANDBAG ACCESSORIES
Pom pom bag charms for your handbag are still a big trend and this one is only $12, but now these patterned guitar straps, like this one with a tassel are a new way to accessorize your handbag.

2. VELVET
These rich velvet pumps would be perfect for upcoming Christmas and New Year parties. Or how about these velvet dresses.

3. OVER THE KNEE
The "IT" boots are still a hot trend and over the knee boots are not going away.  These boots are under $40 and a great deal.

4. PLUSH & COZY
Plush, cozy sweaters, jackets, and accessories are a fall trend. These fur sandals and bags are really fun - and definitely something that would get noticed. This shaggy cardigan is a great price - and would be so cozy and warm for winter!

5. BORROWED FROM MEN
The pinstripe menswear-inspired trend like this blazer could be worn with trousers or with skinny jeans and pumps for a dinner date. Or this sleeveless vest is 30%.  This off the shoulder dress is only $26 on sale!

These striped painter pants are also a fun, unique way to wear the trend. Also, menswear-inspired loafers are another big trend this fall.

It has been a few weeks since I did an outfit post.  I really like this color combination - and the white jeans are only $10 - and this Chloe look-alike bag is under $60.

I mentioned the other week I was looking for a new handbag.  I have had my Marc Jacobs bag for over three years - and I use it almost exclusively.  I am debating about getting another one - and I like this new tote (but I am not sure what color - and I am not sure if the handle drop is big enough.  I like to put it over my shoulder when shopping.)  I also like this tote.  I love the suede color - but not sure how well it would hold up.

 Also, this is the last week of our October Style Series - and we are sharing different ways to style a fall scarf.  Also, be sure to join the style link-up.

THREE THINGS IN MY SHOPPING CART
#1 NEW HANDBAG
I have been looking for a new handbag.  I want one that does not have gold or silver hardware.  I found this one - now I am wondering why I didn’t shop the 25% off sale a few weeks ago. I found another option that is really similar and is under $60. 

#2 FUNKY BOOTS
Style has become an eclectic mix of styles from decades ago.  We have the mix of punk-inspired grunge of the 90s with Doc Martins and lug platform soles, mixed with the Victorian-inspired lace up details in lace booties.  I really like these booties (and the lace up version, too) and these plaid ones.

#3 BASIC TEES
I stock up on basic tees - and I just found a new one that I like just about as much as the old one that I have loved for so many years. And, it is under $25This one is a looser version and is under $20.   And, a striped version for only $15.

LASTLY MY TOP 5 PICKS FOR THE SALE OF THE SEASON

The big sale of the season starts today.  Shopbop is offering up to 30% off.  And, if you are not familiar with Shopbop - they offer free 3 day shipping (2 day if you are an Amazon Prime member) and free returns.  It is a no risk purchase!  They offer a wide range of price points - and a lot of great designer things - which are on sale. There may be a few exceptions.


MY TOP 5 SALE PICKS

 1. RINGS
I love this designer.  She makes high quality gold plated jewelry for an affordable price that doesn’t tarnish or look worn after a lot of wear. I love these fun, delicate rings - and for a reasonable price - some under $35 without the discount!


2. BOOTIES
I just talked about how much I love boots, and I am looking for a casual suede boots like these Ash ones or these Dolce Vita ones.


3. BAG
I have been on the hunt for a new bag.  I have had such a struggle finding one I like within the price range I am willing to pay.  My two top picks that are really a great price are this camera bag and this suede tote.


4. COAT
I am looking for a wool jacket that I could wear with jeans.  I love this Scotch & Soda/Maison Scotch checked coat.  The red/cream plaid is so much fun! And, it would be an additional $60 off during the sale.  This buffalo plaid one is also fun - and an even better sale price!


5. LEATHER JACKET
I have a thing for leather jackets.  I can never seem to stop shopping for them.  These leather jackets are on my “WISH” (splurge) list - and will probably be sitting in my cart for a long time.  I really like the red suede one the burgundy leather, and even the collarless pale grey one.

You do not need to spend a fortune on over the knee boots - like these popular boots. These are under $40 and would be perfect for running errands with the flat heel.

2. PLAID PONCHO
With the varying fall temps, this plaid poncho would be a great layering piece. (Or there is this new boucle option - which looks so soft.)  Plus it is only $40.  You can see how I styled it here with riding boots.

3. COZY CARDIGAN
This oversized cardigan looks so cozy - and would look great layered over a simple long sleeve tee, paired with jeans and boots.  It is 40% off right now - making it a great deal!

4. ANKLE BOOTIES
Suede ankle booties are the go-to bootie for fall.  They would be easy to style with a lot of different outfits.

5. BLANKET SCARF
A scarf is a great addition to any look.  They are the perfect way to add a pop of color and this scarf is under $20.

Last month, this was the top clicked item in all of my posts - and I have to say it is my favorite sweater this fall (and it is also under $50).  I picked it up during the #nsale and I bought it in a couple of colors.
