FashionMust-Have Statement Sleeves For Fall!

Statement sleeves have become the staple shirt for every fashionista’s wardrobe and they are anything but a passing trend! Designed in a vast range of prints, patterns, and silhouettes, the statement sleeve is our number one must-have for the season. With so many exaggerated bell sleeves and stand out styles coming in daily, we hope this roundup of our faves inspires you to give this trend a try.

Sleeve Envy

It’s all about the exaggerated sleeve and there are so many options, from bell to billowy shaped, ruffled to extra long lengths – the list goes on and on! All these statement sleeve styles are making a bigger appearance in fashion this year, and we are OBSESSED!

1st set

There are so many fun ways you can add this trend into your daily wardrobe; one of our go-to looks is to pair it with your favorite denim jeans, accentuate with a timeless, bare-it-all ankle strap high heel sandal, and glam it up with gold hoop earrings like the ones shown above.

Whether you’re hitting the town with your girl group or on the hunt for the perfect date night outfit, this trend is just what your closet needs. Because the focus of the outfit should be on the sleeves, it looks fresh and chic to keep your accessories minimal and classic when you wear statement sleeve anything.

2nd set

Bell sleeves were popular back in the 70s and they’re finally making a comeback this season in a major way. If you’re looking for the easiest kind of statement sleeves to pull off, bell sleeves may just be what you are looking for. If you’re searching for the right sleeve, but aren’t into the flowing look, just look for structured materials. Updated for 2017, the new bell sleeve is chic and modern, which will give a sophisticated vibe, while still being so on trend!

3rd set

Flare and volume is what this fall is all about; the fussier the sleeve, the finer the outfit! While this post is all about the statement sleeves, the outfit below features two other major trends to know this season. The first are dramatic cat eye sunglasses, which have been popping up everywhere, and we LOVE the look.  The other trend we are calling out in this post is the black (vegan) leather skirt. We love the staple because it’s perfect for transitioning into fall. Complete the ensemble with a pair of cool, heeled ankle boots, and you’ve got a perfect outfit for the season.

FashionThe Fall Colors Your Closet Needs

Say goodbye to summer’s scorching heat and barely there clothing, and hello to fall fashion season! Filled with longer hemlines, layers upon layers, and a plethora of new dresses, jackets and shoes to choose from, fall is definitely our favorite season for getting dressed! When Pantone released the fall color trend report earlier this year, we just knew we had to add these fresh hues to our wardrobe. From classic neutrals to bright, bold colors, the clothing we love this fall is all about expressing yourself through color and texture. We picked out five of our favorite fall color trends featured in the color report to give you a quick cheat sheet for the must-have items in each of these trendy hues. Are you ready for a fall-inspired rainbow wardrobe? Read on for our top picks and the cutest ways to wear them!

fall color trends - red

The hottest color for fall is bright and fiery Grenadine red! From head-to-toe red to pops of the cherry hue added to neutral outfits, if you have to add an unexpected color to your closet this season, it’s this one. Stand out in a bright red jumpsuit like the Thinking Out Loud Red Backless Jumpsuit for a look that commands attention. Not “red-y” to go full monochromatic in red? Try adding it to your outfits with a pair of statement earrings, as an accent color on a printed dress or as a lacy layer underneath your favorite shirts and sweaters.

autumnmaple

In the vein of more traditional fall colors, Autumn Maple is a cozy orange shade filled with warmth, updated for 2017 with a rusty, coppery cast. It’s completely unexpected in a lacy cocktail dress, which makes the J.O.A. Kyler Burnt Orange Lace Off-the-Shoulder Dress the best choice for any of the fall occasions you want to be your best dressed and look different from everyone else in the room. Other fun ways to add this rust shade to your wardrobe include shimmery leggings paired with your fave oversize sweater; sexy, trendy tops; and soft, suede handbags with boho accents.

fall color trends - forest green

Shaded Spruce is this fall’s answer to the classic forest green. This cool green looks amazing on all skin tones and is our favorite jewel-inspired shade to incorporate into the upcoming season’s closet. Rendered in silky satin, the Let Me Entertain You Forest Green Satin Wide-Leg Jumpsuit is a chic take on a one-piece outfit for any party you’re heading to this fall. The color looks equally beautiful as a dress, whether it’s a lacy midi, a sexy maxi or a playful striped mini dress. A strappy bodysuit paired with dark denim or a flash of emerald in your earrings are subtler ways of adding this gorgeous green to whatever outfit you’re wearing.

fall color trends - blush

Blush is still happening! Whether you call it Millennial pink, Ballet Slipper (like Pantone did) or just plain, old pink, this soft, rosy shade is still hot for fall after being one of our most-loved looks for spring and summer. Add this femme color to your closet in the form of street style staples like the Melrose Blush Pink Velour Hoodie. It’s longer length and soft fabric elevate the classic hoodie style into something a little more special. Other picks for adding blush to your fall wardrobe include sexy separates, shift dresses (so cute with a denim jacket and sneaks!), and easy-to-carry handbags.

fall color trends - burgundy

It wouldn’t be a fall fashion color report without burgundy! While this hue is consistently at the top of our favorite fall color lists, this year it feels fresh and elegant in a cool-toned cast. Look for burgundy pieces with a little bit of blue undertones to bring this color into 2017, such as the Free People Simply Henley Burgundy Long Sleeve Bodysuit. Rock this color from head to toe in pretty maxi dresses and low-key jumpsuits, or pick a key piece such as a suede mini skirt or velvet sneakers to bring a little burgundy into your everyday outfits.
