Coming Up for Fall...

Purple and grey are the "it" colors, taking center stage this fall. Deeper shades of purple work, like the color on this Isaac Mizrahi dress from Target, but the brighter 80's shade is going to be the most fashionable.

From suits, tights, to tops and dresses, grey is showing up everywhere. For a brighter, feminine look, opt for something with a bit more of a silver or shimmery shade like the dress pictured below.
Animal print is always classic, but will be one of the trademarks of this season. I suggest using it as an accessory (belt, purse, shoe). These ballet flats are only $15 at Target.
Menswear-turned-ladies-wear is also very fashionable for this season, manifesting itself in shoes, shirts, vests, and trousers. The oxford, menswear style heels pictured below are appearing to be the most popular pick for the menswear look.

The ensemble pictured below is what In Style suggests for the "menswear" look.
Patent leather is showing up everywhere now, too. Not just in purses and shoes mind you. Pictured below is a Nordstrom's patent leather coat/dress. A little patent leather in any color will instantly update your look for the season.
Have fun fall shopping! I'll be posting some more ideas later.
