So for those of you who’ve only been subscribing for a short time, this fashion post may seem a little out of the blue, haha! But actually, I started my career in fashion (I was a stylist for almost 20 years), and I used to post about fashion much more often. So today, I want to touch on a winter version of one of my most popular posts, French Fashion Essentials.
Grey and gold has been on the design scene for a few years now, and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. In fact, rather than receding, gold and brass tones are hotter than ever!
But what I like about this particular combo is the unexpectedness of it. Until just a few years ago, grey was usually combined with silver tones, like chrome and nickel, even in fashion. It seems every kitchen had silver toned hardware, whether that kitchen was grey, white, or something else. But now, the contrast is so refreshing.
Okay, I’ll admit, I wasn’t jumping for joy when jumpsuits first started popping up a few years ago. In fact, I was fairly resistant to the jumpsuit trend, and I’m not at all sure why! They’re chic, stylish, and could there be an easier way to throw an outfit together?!
I’m definitely someone who loves animal print, especially leopard! I love the drama they add to even the simplest outfit. And now this fall, animal print is back in a big way! It’s the hottest trend of fall, and I think, one of the easiest to wear.
I feel like polka dots are one of those things you either love or hate, and I am definitely on the love side of things. They are so fun – and flattering! They are a true classic, and they seem to come around again every few years whether we like it or not.
