4 Fall 2013 Trends To Wear Now

10 May 2013

Up until four days ago I was completely on Spring and Summer time, but since heading up north on Monday I was quickly greeted with cold weather. 35˚ degrees when we arrived, cold weather. Obviously I was less than amused since I only packed summer dresses and shorts. So much for that spring weather my grandmother was bragging about leading up to our trip, typical. 

However, the cold weather got me thinking about Fall and I couldn't resist getting the mind set, if only for a couple of days. Turns out there's quite a bit of trends we can style up now to be the front runners for Fall, and I narrowed it down to my top four...

1. Punk

Taking note from Sarah Jessica Parker and Anne Hathaway at Monday's Punk Inspired Met Gala, I'm all about emulating our inner punk princess.  Chanel couldn't resist going dark for their Fall 2013 show, and went head to toe punk with leather, chains, and slouchy knits. By simply adding a little edge to your Spring wardrobe you'll be strutting ahead of the crowd, opt for studded bag and separates, layered chains, even whip up your own ankle bling a la Lanvin (tutorial here)

2. Neon

Obviously you know I'm a seriously neon mood, but what you might not know is that Mara Hoffman's Fall 2013 runway inspired me for Spring with her brightly hued maxis. Adding neon is no serious feat, just play with accessories and slowly bring in layers, you can even DIY some seriously fabulous Neon infused Ombre Pumps A La Jimmy Choo Pre-Fall 2013.

3. Slouchy Pants

Right along side neon, is another guilty obsession that I finally bit the bullet (thanks to StyleIt) and jumped on board with and that's Slouchy Pants. Surprisingly flattering on my petite frame, these babies have me searching the racks for prints and bold colors for Spring. I especially am loving how Isabel Marant styled hers on the Fall Runway in Paris...

4. Florals

Kaelen's entire collection could pretty much sum up this entire post with their grunge worthy styles and bold colors, but what I really loved when I was at the Fall Presentation was the gorgeous pastel infused florals, perfect for Spring and uber chic for Fall with a moto jacket thrown over. I'm loving cheery separates this season but I'm lusting after accessories, like these amazing shoes!
