Time to look at the Fall Fashion Trend Report. For #MondayMingle today, I'm sharing one trend I love for everyone--updated animal prints.
This trend is easy to wear--from petite to plus-sized--it's a universal "DO!" It works well with pops of color or a neutral palette, such as the one I have shown here. I took a knit tee I've had for a while from Anthropologie added black jeans and a nifty blazer and voila! Instant fall outfit.
The key piece I'm wearing is a blazer from Karen Karen. The Leopard Print Jacket($198) has a slim fit and a delightful bit of stretch. My favorite part of the jacket is the "rouche sleeve variation" that is perfect for end-of-summer transition. Wear it over a tank dress for work or over lacy black shorts for play. This is a very versatile piece.
On the bottom, I've got the Twill Skinny Jean ($108 and also Karen Kane). These narrow jeans are ideal for travel and any woman who likes a trim active cut. They really hug curves beautifully. The light fabric could work well as a transition fabric in the North or an anytime pant in the South.
The shoes are from Nine West called the Savvy. Cut-outs are still big news for fall footwear and these shoes are spot on trend. (Please Note: Forgive the bad hemming job. I had to rush this outfit through a photography session before I left for vacation!) As for the bag, it's a nice neutral tri-color hobo I found at Anthropologie.
