Red hot

Fashion week has come and gone once again and has left us craving the color of the season, red! Power red, as we like to call it, was spotted on runways during fashion week from New York to Milan, cementing its spot at the top of our trend list to wear this fall. Love the color but not sure where to start with this power trend? We’re loving a red statement shoe for fall! From booties, to slingback pumps and even slide loafers, we have a fiery red shoe to make any look pop.

Lace-up loves

Lace-up heels seem to be the sexy shoe trend that shows no sign going anywhere anytime soon. As we transition from one season to the next we find ourselves still reaching for this style, with fall being no exception. Luxe textures like velvet and moody florals have been having a serious moment this fall making it the perfect way to update a classic trend like lace-up heels. Our Raina Champagne Crushed Velvet Lace-Up Heels and Party Anthem Multi Floral Brocade Lace-Up Heels are the perfect statement shoe for fall. If you’re loving the lace-up trend but bold prints and textures aren’t for you, try the Dani Black Suede Lace-Up Heels for a timeless look!

Boot up

Nothing says fall better than a great pair of boots! Forget your basic boots and go bold this season by choosing a bootie in a statement print. We’re loving the neutral colors in our Mamba Grey Snake Print Mid-Calf Boots or knock out two trends at once with the Kupuri Black Embroidered Ankle Booties. Looking for something more than an ankle boot? Take your #ootd to new heights with a chic pair of over the knee boots! Available in all different colors, fabrics and shape, there are endless ways to rock this statement shoe for fall.

FashionHow to Wear Leopard Print Like a Neutral

The thing about animal print is that it never truly goes away. Sure, sometimes it feels more of the moment than others, but it always remains a fashion classic — so classic, in fact, that it’s time you started looking at leopard print like a neutral. Sure, an exotic pattern adds a sassy, sexy vibe to your look but it actually also works remarkably well mixed with other patterns and mixed in with casual staples. (Florals? Yes. With a sweatshirt? Absolutely.) So ignore your instinct to pair it with basic black and try a new, unexpected take on the wild print. Need some help getting started? Ahead, check out three ways to work the classic into your wardrobe for a fresh style update. Rawr.

Layer It:

Sure, your printed mini dress is perfect on its own but try slipping it over a lightweight turtleneck and adding your favorite denim jacket. Ultra trendy finishing touches like a red bag and sock boots take it to the next level, making for a look that’s totally Fashion Week worthy.

Do the Mashup:

Want to look put together, polished, and cool all at once? Of course you do. Sub out your basic button down for a cheeky sweatshirt, couple it with your pretty mini skirt, then seal the deal with a pair of purrfect heels. Add mirrored sunnies and a mini bag and you’re on your way to street style star status.

Double Up on Print:

Did you know that leopard and floral are basically best fashion friends? Sure, a furry coat makes a statement all on it’s own but pairing flora with your fauna strikes that just right style balance (it’s what nature intended). Finish it all off with OTK boots, a boho bucket bag, and aviators for a rockin retro vibe.

How are you going to work the wild trend? Tell us in the comments below and be sure to share all of your  Lulus leopard looks with the hashtag #lovelulus on Instagram!
