Trend Alert: Caped Crusaders

8

This fall we’re falling for a trend that has us feeling almost superhuman. This season let’s leave the emblazoned letters to the superheroes, but try their capes on for size. These elegant alternatives to jackets and coats are the perfect solution for those who prefer a little mobility in their outerwear. Not only are capes sophisticated and stylish, they’re also supremely comfortable. They also look perfect paired with a mini-dress or with tucked in jeans and killer boots for the ultimate in fall style. cfe2aa69e41081f36ea93ef6f328afae

Trend Alert: Mad About Mod

This fall we’re falling back into the swinging 60s with short a-line dresses, knee-high boots, and bold graphic prints. Fashion always has a way of reverting on itself, and reinventing the old in a new way. This coming season we’ll be seeing classic mod styles with “modern” additions. Think more metallics, sparkling embellishments, and a diverse color palettes.

gucci-fall-winter-2014-show34Gucci knows how to modernize the trend with leather in an unexpected powder blue and go-go boots.

dsquared2-fall-winter-2014-show30DSquared2 has it down pat with a slinky blush mini and hair that’s as high as the heavens.

We love the bright mustard of this Carven two-piece ensemble. And when it comes to boots, it’s go tall or go home.
