Fall Trends To Try (Before Winter Takes Over)

Fall is beloved.  We pine for it, plan for it, shop and blog for it.  It can also allow us a wider margin of options within our modest closets, and for that we are grateful.  Yet somehow in our haze of crunching leaves, crisp air, and our favorite knit, we tend to forget that too soon after Autumn comes Winter.  The trends remain, but the large (albeit fabulous) coat thrown over can slightly obscure our efforts at achieving sartorial freedom.  So while the chill is still tolerable, now is the time to indulge in the best of the Fall fashion we’ve been coveting.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve worn a few of my favorite trends of the season, including stark white shirtdresses, fall florals paired with paper-thin turtlenecks, monochromatic chunky sweater and leather skirt combo worn with suede boots for texture, and matching printed separates.

Modest Runway Report: BCBG Pre-Fall 2014

I thought I was pretty much done with the modest forecast for Pre-Fall of 2014, when I did my write-up based on the last slew of shows.  Then BCBG debuted their collection, and I felt the need to crack open the proverbial can of runway once again.  The concept of Pre-Fall is literally what we wear in between the seasons, when we transition from Summer to Fall.  Some designers create a collection that rushes into things, and immediately thrusts us into the hands of Autumn, with no polite introductions, and nary a backwards glance.

However, BCBG’s Max Azria has created a mostly modest collection that is giving us the faculties necessary to cross the bridge between the warm and cool seasons with ease;  not too heavy, not too light.  The designer continues to step up his game, and has delivered us a refreshingly sophisticated palette of color and cut to look forward to.  It also doesn’t hurt that the brand is relatively reasonable in terms of price, and has made itself accessible to the modest masses.
