Fashion Fortune Teller: 5 Trends You Should Get Now to Be In Style Later

Now, I’m not saying I’m a trend setter, but I was the first person to wear Ugg boots with a denim skirt in my high school before everyone else. Coincidence? Could be. Or maybe I just have fashion ESPN or something.

If this has you convinced I have a true gift, please step into my parlor, shuffle the style Tarot cards, and gaze into my couture crystal ball for a look into fashion’s future.

LAVENDER EVERYTHING

RIP Millennial Pink. The rosy shade has officially wilted leaving it’s cool-toned cousin to take the color throne.

1, 2, 3, 4.

BUCKET HATS

Yes, those hats that are a staple in any LL Cool J wannabe’s wardrobe are the must have this fall. Don’t believe me? I see your rebuttal and raise you a Rihanna.

1 & 2, 3, 4.

COWBOY BOOTS

The country girl in me is giddy to see these babies back in the fashion saddle. You can’t deny their cool factor paired with a maxi dress or as an unexpected “pop” of color for your monochrome outfit.

1, 2 through 4.

BROAD SHOULDERS

I’ve never been one for shoulder pads, but these looks have me thinking about “broadening” my scope (EEEEEH???).

1, 2, 3, 4.

WORKWEAR 

Move over, business suits. The blue collar workwear style is having a moment. Pair industrial overalls with white boots for a sleeker look or go for broke and rock your paint splattered pants with work boots.

1, 2, 3, 4.

SUMMER TO FALL

Silly me bought a few spring dresses from Tobi right when it started to get cold outside. The solution? Instead of packing them away, I came up with a few summer to fall looks.

Hopefully, these looks will inspire you to hang onto your lighter pieces for a little while longer!

What? No, I’m not cold. Why? *shivering*

I couldn’t resist the scallop detail of this lavender shift. With pompon shoes and a denim moto-jacket, it makes an easy date night look (note to self: next time, wear tights.).

The great thing about living with your fashionable boyfriend? You get to borrow his sweaters.

The off the shoulder look lives on into the colder months with over the knee boots, my SO’s cardigan, and a berry lip. So cozy!

True story: I wore this dress on a 12 hour flight right before taking these photos. There’s nary a wrinkle and I look fresh as a daisy!

Embrace the new season and pair your easy breezy dress with booties, a light anorak, and a neckerchief.

IT’S ALL RAINBOWS

Jessie Marie and I found these rainbow panels and thought “Hey, that would make a great backdrop!” Too bad one of the panels had some……unfortunate graffiti. I did my best to hide it with my cat purse. Can you guess what it says?

This is my official summer bag. Some people want a basic, round straw bag. I am not one of them. Give me all the cat-themed things.

Speaking of cats, do you like my top? Look closely, there’s more to it than meets the eye. At first glance, it looks like a floral motif. On further inspection, you’ll see kitties! This print is by one of my favorite artists on Redbubble, Burcu Korkmazyurek. Want one? Get it here.

WHAT SHE PINNIN’?

  1. (Clockwise from top left) These amazing slippers are sold out, but I’m crossing my fingers (and toes) they’ll be restocked. 2. I may or may not have this ruffled blouse in my cart and I may or may not buy it right after I post this. 3. Into The Gloss covered the best of the best makeup looks from NYFW. My favorite? The bare-faced look Proenza Schouler sent down the runway. 4. These gem enamel pins are more affordable than the real-deal and look way cool pinned on a black leather jacket.
