Guest BloggerFall Trends with Kimberly of Penny Pincher Fashion-Part 3!

 

Untitled-5

Today we have our 3rd and final post from the awesome Kimberly of Penny Pincher Fashion! All week she has been showing us how to take Fall’s hottest trends and incorporate them into our wardrobes! Kimberly is a master of finding the cutest pieces on the cheap  and with her polished and trendy aesthetic, she could easily be our next style guru! Take a look below to see how she styled a pair of super-chic and sporty drawstring pants. We have seen sportswear all over the runway and in the best of street style, so this final segment is sure to inspire you. Make sure to head to Kimberly”s blog for more daily doses of fashion for less!

Leather trim trousers

Hi everyone! This is my final post in the fall series with LuLu*s and today we’re tackling the sporty trend.  Slouchy & track-style pants are totally in for the season, which is a major bonus for those of us who crave comfortable pieces that still look stylish!

Track pants

 I personally like to add a heel when wearing looser-fitting pants because it elongates the leg line & adds a feminine touch.  These pants have such a modern feel & I love the faux leather detailing on the side.  

Neutrals + plaid

I chose to pair them with more tailored pieces to balance out the sporty vibe, but you could just as easily wear them with a graphic tee & leather jacket for a cool weekend look.  

Trench + relaxed trousers

I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s posts & have gotten some good ideas for how to style these new trends with pieces you already own.  Thanks so much to LuLu*s for partnering with me!

What I’m wearing:

Trench (similar),  blouse (similar here or here), sweater (similar here or here), c/o LuLu*s Pants, heels ( similar here), Vintage clutch, watch (similar), bracelet (similar)

On Monday, we had frugal fashionista, Kimberly from Penny Pincher Fashion show us how to rock one of her favorite fall trends: camo! Today we have the second installment of her trend series and she is going to show us how to wear something we have seen all over the runway for fall 2013: leather details!

Ladylike leather1

Hi everyone! Kimberly from Penny Pincher Fashion here! For my second look with LuLu*s, I chose to focus on leather.  In my opinion, everyone should have a little leather jacket for the season – it adds just the right amount of edge to classic pieces & instantly makes any outfit cooler.

Leather blazer2

Leather jacket3

I love this vegan style because it’s an affordable option & it doesn’t have the overtly tough feel of a moto jacket.  Plus, it’s slightly easier to dress up since it fits more like a blazer.

Tweed & leather4

This would be perfect for those of you who live in warmer climates because it’s a thinner material, which gives you a versatile layer without adding bulk.  I would also pair this with a button-down silk blouse, a flowy printed mini & ankle boots for a more dressed-up look.

Tweed + leather5

What I’m wearing:

Ark & Co. Vegan Leather Blazer c/o LuLu*s, top (try this!), jeans (similar), pumps (similar), bag (similar), earrings (similar), c/o T+J Designs cuff (similar), Lips (similar)

Camo sweatshirt1

Hi! I’m Kimberly from Penny Pincher Fashion!  This week, I am so excited to get to share 3 different looks I’ve created with pieces from LuLu*s.  We are collaborating to show you how to wear some of the biggest trends for fall.  Today’s post is the first in the series and I decided to focus on camouflage.  

Camo & leather1

This sweatshirt is honestly the softest thing I have ever put on! It is so comfortable & perfect to wear with jeans & sneakers on the weekend, but also pairs nicely with sleek tailored pieces like a pencil skirt (extra points if it’s lace or leather).

Camo + sparkle1

Dressed up camo1

Camo is sometimes a tricky print to style, especially for those who gravitate towards more feminine silhouettes – so if you’re not quite sure, try balancing it with something girly (like a flippy black mini) or pair with classic pieces (like a white button-down layered underneath + cropped black trousers).

Ladylike camo1

 What I’m wearing:

O’Neill Blakely Camo Sweatshirt c/o LuLu’s, pencil skirt (similar), black heels (similar; also love this studded option)
