I am absolutely living for the upcoming season’s must-haves! It’s a perfect collection of every trend I loved at the peak of the 90’s. Let’s kick things off with my current favorite accessory: Chokers.
While we have been spending the Spring and Summer wearing tattoo chokers at beaches and music festivals around the globe, our favorite designers, including Dries Van Noten, have been in their studios cooking up these delicious statement chokers. Tip: Pair yours with a simple cocktail dress for an effortless evening look.
Chunky heels: Let’s all breathe a collective sigh of relief! After balancing in shoes that feel like stilts, the chunky block heel is a nice change and will make your city adventures a bit more comfortable and steady. Tip: Pair these with a wide leg for a retro look or with a skinny leg for a contemporary look.
Pinstripe suits: This is giving me major Cici Babcock flashbacks. Pinstripe suits popped up in many runway shows this season, including Calvin Klein as pictured below. Tip: Nothing says ultra chic like a dark pinstripe suit, stick to colors like Navy and Black for now.
Private school influences: Who would’ve ever thought we’d be voluntarily back in our primary school uniforms? Jumpers, plaid and felt loafers are seasonal necessities. Tip: Pair a plaid jumper with a solid, color-coordinated top, similar to this look from Jason Wu’s Fall collection.
Velvet: There is no other fabric that oozes Autumn elegance like velvet does. Tip: Play with velvet in pretty jewel tones like emerald green, canary yellow and sapphire blue or stay neutral yet rich like Alberta Ferretti did with this butterscotch look.
