Fall is in full swing and as we bid our natural tans goodbye, fashionistas can take solace from the disappearance of summer heat with the heralding of a new seasonal era: fall fashion.
This season, it’s been all about hardcore, androgynous blacks, the iridescent, delicate metallics and the theatrical, antiquated vintage. Whether worn alone or paired together, hardcore meets antique with this season’s bold designs, ensuring a confident look for every woman.
Do shiny things intrigue you? Work glittery metallics this fall with this sequined top or this sparkly solace pencil skirt, both from Guess by Marciano. Pair each piece with non-shiny items to avoid looking like a disco ball but, if you’re particularly daring, try mixing and matching colored sequins like Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester for a bedazzling look.
If your taste is a little more classic, work the vintage look with bold antique patterns in anything from teeny mini skirts to over-stated outer wear. Follow the fashion lead of Jessica Szohr (another Gossip Girl star) with this lace baby doll dress from Necessary Objects and use a little vintage to update your wardrobe.
If frills and shine are not your deal and you’d rather sport a pair of Doc Marten’s than stilettos, this fall is the season for you. Leather, spikes and studs have been making an updated comeback with innovative cuts and detailing that make even those with the hardest core go soft. Whether you play it up by working masculine cuts or soften the look by pairing it with dainty details, rock star chic can fit into anyone’s wardrobe. Mimic the look of Taylor Momsen, you guessed it: Gossip Girl, who softens her cropped leather motorcycle jacket with a sweet and petite cream-colored bubble dress by investing in a leather jacket like this BGSD cropped lambskin jacket.
