Get ready for fall with some of the latest fashion trends.
Of course leather jackets and bags are hot for fall. But this year, we’ll see more leather in unexpected places. Plenty of leather A-line skirts and dresses are popping up in stores right now. Check out the leopard-print leather skirt from Rochas, See by Chloe leather trouser shorts or the red leather shift dress by Cacharel (pictured here).
Add a little shine to your everyday wardrobe with beads, sequins and other sparkling touches. TOMS casual slip-on shoes get a glitzy upgrade. You’ll love them in plum sequins or blue glitter. Available exclusively at Nordstrom, the TOMS Classic Sequins slip-ons are priced at $84.95. And with every pair of shoes purchased, TOMS gives a pair of shoes to a child in need.
If you want to spring for a pair of designer shoes for fall, make them ladylike pumps. Lady-chic jackets and dresses are very trendy, so you need the right pair of shoes to go with them. We love the Manolo Blahnik “Menry” pumps. These d’Orsay suede pumps are accented with flirty scalloped trim and a little leather bow. Priced at $725, these pretty pumps come in grey, cream or brown.
