“Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful”….. winter weather is upon. As many of us pack our bags and travel to see our loved ones this Season, it’s time to start thinking about winter weather fashion options. There is a way to stay stylish yet warm throughout whatever Mother Nature may throw our way this time of year.

CLASSIC BOUCLE COAT

Rain, snow, sleet or shine, one of our favorite “go to” jackets to fit any winter weather situation is the classic boucle coat. Popularized by the French designer Coco Chanel decades ago, the look is still on trend today. The word “Boucle” actually refers to material made from boucle yarn, looping several colors together to create an endless variety of designs and patterns. The great thing about this jacket is that it is easily adaptable for work or play, dress or casual. Try Guess’s powder pink double breasted Boucle coat paired with Hale Bob’s black stretch A line skirt and black satin blouse with lace for everyday work wear to the office. Segue into the evening hours and party the night away by combining your Boucle coat with a chic cocktail dress from Hale Bob. Choose from a wide selection to fit and flatter every figure and fashion taste found at our convenient online store Posh at Play.

Your Boucle coat can go triple duty by pairing with your favorite jeans and sweater for everyday comfort and style. Try this year’s favorite cropped jean silhouette with Citizen’s of Humanity’s Dani dark wash skinny cropped jeans or go for flare in the Dylan wide leg cropped pant. Layer your look with Liberty Garden’s ivory ultra suede sweatshirt or stay snug in the fur trimmed sweatshirt and cable knit sweater. However you choose to style, you’ll definitely want to add the versatile Boucle coat to your wardrobe collection this Winter.

COZY FUR VEST

Our second favorite chilly weather option is the fur vest. Easy to layer over a blouse or sweater by itself on warmer days or underneath a wool coat on cold winter days, be sure to add the fur vest to your closet this Season. Get a similar look as pictured above with Hale Bob’s black rabbit fur vest paired with Hudson’s Nico mid rise super skinny jeans or try the Signature skinny jeans if you prefer black. Accessorize with Dooney & Bourke’s classic oversized leather tote,  Betsey Johnson’s heart pendant, and waterproof leather booties from Aquatalia, perfect for rainy or snowy Winter weather. If you’re feeling festive this Holiday Season, go with Hale Bob’s red rabbit fur vest instead. You are sure to spread some Christmas cheer in style.

Your fur vest can also carry you from the ski slopes to the office place. Rather than lug a heavy coat with you, top your fleece lined black leggings from Zella and cozy wool sweater from Free People with your fur vest and you ready to ski the day away. Impress your Boss and turn heads at the office by combining your favorite long sleeved shift dress with Hale Bob’s fur vest, black opaque striped tights from Elie Tahari, knee high suede boots from William Rast, and a crocodile embossed tote from Badgley Mischka. The fur vest is definitely a fashionable warm winter option to have with you this Season.

THE PONCHO

With “Boho” still all the rage, it is no surprise that the poncho is one of this Season’s trendiest winter coat options. Updated for 2015, look for ponchos made with unusual materials such as lace from Free People and different patterns such as striped from Ralph Lauren. Or stay simple in Liberty Garden’s black faux suede trimmed lace poncho easily paired with your favorite jeans and boots for everyday wear or thrown over your favorite cocktail dress at your next holiday party.

410d4b512a3f6483b43c8377c1a3d89d

Get in on one of this Season’s top trends with the “poncho dress.” From Valentino to Chloe, designers are pushing the limits of how to style the classic poncho and are giving it a chic, updated look. We like Free People’s soft Toltec poncho dress or BB Dakota’s black burnout velvet dress for casual occasions. If you’ve been extra good this year, Santa might just spoil you with an elegant Valentino black flutter poncho dress, perfect for your dressier occasions. Or, you can simply grab your favorite knee length poncho and wear it solo on your next dinner date or holiday party.

For extremely frigid climates, layering is the key to staying warm against the seasonal elements. Layering also works in warmer winter weather when the daytime is hot but nighttime brings in the chilly air. In cold temperatures, start with your favorite button down blouse like Hale Bob’s black velvet floral top paired with a gray lace pencil skirt with half slip. Layer with a gray wool sweater from Eileen Fisher, gray cable knit scarf from Phillip Lim, wool blend peacoat from Michael Kors, and knee high leather boots from designer Antonio Melani. For a different look, combine your layers over Hale Bob’s grey ultra suede leggings or AC Collection’s grey stretch skinny jeans. In warmer climates, forgo the heavy peacoat, and simply layer a blouse and sweater combo over your favorite pair of pants, accessorizing with a cozy scarf for nighttime chills. To keep from feeling like “Frosty the Snowman,” make sure you start with thinner fabrics underneath, and end with your heaviest fabric on top.

LOOKING GOOD IN GALOSHES

Lastly, one of our favorite winter weather items that you can incorporate into your fashion wardrobe this holiday Season is the waterproof rain boot. From Tory Burch’s “equestrian” style to Hunter’s wedge to Santana Canada’s fur trimmed, tried and true galoshes get a facelift this Season with updated looks and unique styles. The girls will never know you are wearing waterproof rain shoes when you pair your Tory Burch boots with a red plaid shirt from Current/Elliot, black A line skirt from Hale Bob, and holiday red flare overcoat from Via Spiga on your next coffee date.

DENIM JEANS TO FIT YOUR FIGURE

denim jean fashion to fit your figure

The denim jean has always been Fall and Winter’s “go to” pant style. With this Season’s many different styles, lengths, and shapes, which jean fashion looks best on you? First, determine your body shape. Are you petite or tall? Curvy or athletic? Whilst there is no standard silhouette, you can choose a denim style that will fit and flatter your figure, accentuating your strengths and hiding your flaws to present the perfect you. We here at Posh at Play want you to start every day looking and feeling your best. So take a look at our top denim choices for each figure and start shopping your body shape’s style.

skinny jeans for petite figures

SKINNIES FOR PETITE FRAMES

Lengthen your legs and strut your style in a pair of skinnies for petite figures. Since shorter frames can sometimes appear stocky with too much embellishment, sleek skinny jeans will streamline your look. Go simple with Hudson’s Collin skinny jeans paired with your favorite button down blouse and sweater. Lengthen your line with Vince Camuto’s ankle strap pumps in “Sugar Plum” suede and a chic “blush” handbag from Kate Spade. Carry your skinnies into the evening hours with Hudson’s Nico skinny jeans topped with Hale Bob’s red silk button down and black leather sandals from Sam Edelman for perfect holiday style. Or go for a bit of Seasonal color in Hudson’s “Bordeaux” skinny jeans, a trending color this year. For petite figures, the full length skinny jean is your best “go to” denim look.

cropped wide leg jeans for boyish figures

CROPPED WIDE LEG FOR BOYISH FIGURES

Characterized by narrow waist and hips, boyish figures look great in this Season’s newest denim trend. The slouchy wide leg cropped jeans hang nicely on bodies that have straight hips and thighs, emphasizing your boyish shape. We like Citizen’s of Humanity’s relaxed Dylan cropped jeans paired with Liberty Garden’s cropped menswear sweater and Topshop’s bright red suede buckle booties. For a more streamlined look, we also like Rachel Comey’s high waisted light wash wide leg denim jeans paired with Hale Bob’s sleek Utilitarian turtleneck in jade or black and Michael Kors’ chic crossbody bag. Segue into the evening hours by accessorizing your jeans with Hale Bob’s sleek black lace bodysuit and bright red clutch from Hobo. However you choose to accessorize, boyish frames be sure to include this year’s trendy wide leg cropped style into your wardrobe collection.

bootcut jeans for tall figures

BOOTCUT JEANS FOR TALL FIGURES

For those lucky gals blessed with long limbs, a bootcut shape is your best bet. Snug through the hips and thighs, and opening into a bell shaped bottom, this jean style fits and flatters your lovely long silhouette. We love Hudson’s Signature bootcut jeans with a mid rise waistline perfect for any occasion. You will also love Hudson’s Beth Baby bootcut jeans as well with extra long cuffs. Pair your look with any of Hale Bob’s solid or printed sheer blouses, from the bright yellow floral print to the baby blue silk chiffon or the black satin lace to the ivory silk Charmeuse for dressier occasions.

rolled cropped jeans for tall women

Tall girls also have the option of rolling jean cuffs for a trendy modern look. The shorter cuffs extend the line and make legs look even longer. So don’t worry if you can’t find long enough jeans to fit your body. Simply roll the cuffs of your favorite pair of denim, throw on a classic trench from Ann Taylor, accessorize with a snug striped cashmere sweater from Burberry and step out in style this Winter.

flare jeans for curvy figures

FLARE JEANS FOR CURVY FIGURES

Curvy figures have no fear. We have the perfect jean cut to accentuate and flatter your feminine frame. Flare jeans with an open cuff below help balance out wider hips and thighs and are the perfect compliment to your physic. Go with this Season’s trendy “Boho” look in Hudson’s light wash Ferris flap pocket flare paired with Free People’s lace flyaway tunic or  Liberty Garden’s black lace babydoll shift dress. Complete your look with one of Hale Bob’s colorful rabbit fur vests, leather clogs from Steve Madden, Free People’s fringe Hobo bag, and rag & bone’s floppy brim fedora. If “Boho” isn’t quite your style, top your flares with Liberty Garden’s trendy blush pink long sleeve Tee and sneakers or go with the cozy fur trimmed cable knit sweater and Alfani’s fur lined ankle booties on chilly Winter nights.

wide leg jean style

WIDE LEG JEANS FOR ANY FIGURE

Lastly, our favorite denim trend this Season that fits and flatters any figure is the wide leg jean. Roomy enough to accommodate every waistline and versatile for any occasion, be sure to include this pant into your wardrobe collection for Winter. We love AC Collection’s variety of wide leg styles paired perfectly with one of Hale Bob’s silk chiffon blouses and UGG’s water resistant fur trimmed wedge booties for everyday style. Carry your look to the office and top with Hale Bob’s black Bolero jacket and black pumps from Charles David. For perfect holiday style, accessorize your wide leg jeans with Ralph Lauren’s Christmas red turtleneck sweater, Kate Spade’s pointy toe pump, and a vintage Christmas tree handbag from Boston Inventory.

Go with this Season’s trendiest style in a long suede fringe duster as pictured above, or accessorize with a suede fringe vest or jacket. Look for the fringe suede duster at your local clothing shops since we found the item sold out across the most popular department and designer stores. You could go for a shorter version with Topshop’s cropped fringe suede jacket or shine bright in Mango’s fire engine red suede coat. Complete your “Boho” look with Goldsign’s dark wash wide leg jeans, black lace blouse from Hale Bob, and floppy wool hat from Calvin Klein.

DENIM IN DALLAS

With the 90’s back in a big way for Fall, now’s the perfect time to bring out your favorite denim jacket. Cropped or long, belted or loose, casual or dressy, the denim jacket is a perfect wardrobe staple this Season. From Neiman Marcus, Dallas’ anchor store, we like Alexa Chung’s cropped denim paired with Liberty Garden’s black babydoll dress for true 90’s fashion. Go classic with Helmut Lang’s long sleeve denim jacket or update the look with Frame Denim’s button front jacket with waist tie. Don’t forget to carry your denim look to business and formal occasions as well. For the office, pair Paige Denim’s white collarless denim jacket with Hale Bob’s blush pink dress and on your next evening out, top Hale Bob’s lace trimmed satin shift dress with Anthropologie’s true black denim and Steve Madden’s black leather pointy toe pumps for a perfect Winter’s night.

floral patterned trench coat in Miami

FLORAL IN MIAMI

Even tropical spots can get chilly during the Winter months, and what better way to anticipate the coming of Spring than with a floral patterned trench coat. Don’t let the dreary weather get you down. Shine bright this Season in Hale Bob’s floral patterned teal Boucle coat easily adaptable for the office, lunch with the girls, or an evening out on the town. On warmer days, we love the floral print silk organza trench by designer Elenyun also doubling as a chic dress paired with Charles David’s peep toe booties or Steve Madden’s “Slithur” sandals for elegant occasions.

Southwestern pattern A line jacket

SWEATER COAT IN CLEVELAND

Lightweight and bulk-free, the sweater coat is great on warmer Winter days or as a layering option over your favorite blouse and sweater combo. Shop like the locals in Hale Bob’s red wool sweater coat paired with Hudson’s dark wash “Nico” skinny jeans, Rebecca Minkoff black leather “hobo” bag, and red suede ankle booties NEW from Geox. We also like Free People’s “bold Geo” print sweater coat or go with their floor length “duster” version. Perfect for the office as well, top your AC Collection pencil skirt and Hale Bob long sleeve polka dot silk blouse with Barney’s fuzzy black sweater coat for a classic modern look. Segue into cocktail hour by pairing your sweater coat with one of our many cocktail dresses, perfect for any holiday gathering or special occasion.

FUR IN BOSTON

From vests to jackets to trimmed collars, Bostonians love their fur. In addition to providing extra protection against the elements, fur is the perfect glamorous Winter wardrobe piece. Get a similar look as featured above with Hale Bob’s red rabbit fur vest paired over AC Collection’s black skinny jeans and Liberty Garden’s white open shoulder long sleeve top, accessorized with Vince Camuto’s black fringe booties, Rebecca Minkoff’s leather handbag and stackable bangles from Kendra Scott. For the perfect holiday look, combine your fur vest with matching red suede leggings from Hale Bob and an ivory silk Charmeuse blouse, finishing with sparkling heels from Pelle Moda and gold glitter clutch from Kate Spade.

the robe coat for Winter

ROBE COAT IN NYC

 Like any true New Yorker, stay fashionable without trying too hard in our final favorite outerwear trend this Season.

FALL’S FAVORITE COLOR COMBOS

Fall colors

When we think of the changing of the Season, we all pull out our heavier fabrics and darker colors.This year, forgo the usual blacks, navys, and browns and add a little color into your Fall and Winter wardrobe. Fresh from the runways, we have the top color combinations trending across the globe for 2015. Some color combinations might seem “taboo,” but take a chance and try something new. You may surprise yourself in discovering a new and different YOU this Season. Take a look at our favorite styles below, and choose which color combos you like best.

red and orange color combos for Fall

RED AND ORANGE

Just in time for Halloween, now’s the time to bring out your favorite bright orange and coral colored clothing. Instead of playing it safe and pairing with the usual darker brown or black, be daring and combine with red, its partnering primary color. Get a similar look as featured above with Vince Camuto’s chic red cropped pants topped with Hale Bob’s orange short sleeve fringe shirt and red opened toed platform booties from Jessica Simpson. If the weather turns chilly, go with Hale Bob’s warm ultra suede coral leggings paired with the red silk button down blouseEileen Fisher’s burnt orange colored knit cardigan, and handmade dangle pumpkin earrings from DRae Designs. By combining orange and red, you’ll look smashing in Halloween’s iconic colors all Season long.

yellow jeans and pink scarf and hat for Fall

PINK AND YELLOW

All shades of pink, from blush to fuchsia, are trending for this Fall’s fashion collection. Straight off the runways of Christian Dior and Oscar de la Renta, stand out in style by pairing your favorite hue with a bright yellow. Start with our favorite trending blush pink long sleeve tee from Liberty Garden combined with Hale Bob’s bright yellow sateen skinny pants and Jimmy Choo powder pink leather kitten heels. Wow them with a pop of color in Hale Bob’s bright fuchsia pink Mayan tribal print tunic accessorized with bright pink suede ankle booties from YOOX.

pink dress with yellow accessories for Fall 2015

If yellow is not a flattering color on you, get in on this year’s trend by choosing your favorite shade of pink dress and simply accessorizing with a few key yellow pieces. We love Hale Bob’s blush pink ultra suede shift dress, suitable for any shape and figure. Complete your outfit with Pelle Moda’s NEW lemon colored strappy sandals and a Comme des Garcons canary yellow wallet inside your Marc Jacobs crossbody bag. Whichever tint you prefer and however you choose to style, be sure to include the pink and yellow color combo into your Fall fashion wardrobe this Season.

blue jacket and green skinny pants for Fall 2015

BLUE AND GREEN

Our third favorite color combination for Fall is blue and green. From designer Ulises Merida in Madrid to Hayley Elsaesser in Toronto, the runways were filled with the sea’s two favorite colors this Season. Spruce up your look at the office and shop Citizen’s of Humanity’s bright green Thompson skinny jeans or Hale Bob’s green Sateen skinny pants paired with Hale Bob’s blue washed silk jacket. Accessorize with Steve Madden’s blue leather pumps and Hayden-Hartnett’s all day green leather satchel for a perfectly trendy workday style. If you prefer more muted shades, substitute Citizen’s of Humanity’s olive green skinny jeans topped with Hale Bob’s long teal Boucle coat instead.

 green sweater with blue skinny pants

Reverse the color combo by selecting a green sweater and blue cropped pants. Perfect for lunch with the girls, a holiday party, or evening out, get a similar look as pictured above with Citizen’s of Humanity’s dark wash cropped blue jeans, Caslon’s green cashmere sweater, a Lauren Merkin leather clutch, and classic nude colored pumps from Stuart Weitzman. Carry Summer’s ocean waves and warm sea breezes with you into the cooler months of Fall by combining the colors of blue and green this Season.

sand sweater paired with an ivory pencil skirt

SAND AND CREAM

Take a break from all the brights, and go with a softer look for Fall with a sand and cream color combo. You’ll look luscious at the office in a sand colored funnel neck sweater from Banjo and Matilda paired with Hale Bob’s ivory pencil skirt and cream colored pumps from Charles David. For a night on the town or holiday party, we like the sand and cream color mixture on Liberty Garden’s mixed media high low maxi dress combined with embellished peep toe pumps from Badgley Mischka and a Tory Burch mini crossbody bag.

sand sweater and ivory leggings

On your next trip to the pumpkin patch or coffee with the girls, slip into Hale Bob’s ivory ultra suede leggings paired with Topshop’s comfy oversized knitted tunic top or go with Equipment’s NEW sand colored cashmere sweater. Switch up the color combo and shop suede leggings from Elie Tahari or try sand leather leggings from Helmut Lang. Top your outfit with Liberty Garden’s NEW ivory knit lace jacket or go with the ultra suede long sleeve sweater combined with Rebecca Minkoff’s Bowery leather tote, Sam Edelman’s knee high boots, and snug beige cashmere scarf from Halogen. Casual or dressy, show your softer side this Fall with a sand and cream color outfit.

wine and mauve color combo for Fall

WINE AND MAUVE

Finally, our last favorite color combination for Fall 2015 is wine and mauve. In “Fall Style: Top Hair, Makeup, Color and Accessory Trends,” we mentioned that “Marsala” is one of the hottest colors trending this Season so what better way to try it out than blending with a lighter tone of the same color palette. Start with Hale Bob’s wine colored ultra suede leggings paired with Currrent/Elliot’s mauve muscle tee, Hale Bob’s black stretch bolero jacket, and suede knee high boots from Chinese Laundry. Or jump on one of this year’s trendiest patterns with Lucky Brand’s cozy NEW mauve and ivory plaid shirt. If leggings aren’t quite your style, substitute Hudson’s wine colored skinny jeans or go with Hale Bob’s ultra suede mini shift dress accessorized with a cute mauve crossbody bag from Kate Spade and matching mauve faux fur coat from Donna Salyer

WIDE LEG DENIM JEANS

This Season, forgo your skinnies and try Fall’s trendiest pant leg style. With the 70’s trending on the runway, you’ll feel groovy in your wide leg denim pants this year. Start with AC Collection’s “Selma” wide leg jeans or the “Rihanna” pant and pair with a chic high neck striped poncho from Zara. Complete your 70’s “Boho” look with Free People’s wool wide brimmed floppy hat, Steve Madden’s fringed booties, and a fringe bag from McFadin Handbags, as seen on celebrities Taylor Swift and Kendall Jenner.

For evening fun, swap out your boots for chic T-strap pumps from Nine West and you are ready to dance the night away.

WIDE LEG CROPPED JEANS

Another favorite denim pant trend to try for Fall is the wide leg cropped jean. Easily adaptable for any occasion, with just the right styling you can make your cropped leg look go from the office to lunch with the girls to cocktail hour. Start with our favorite Citizen’s of Humanity’s relaxed “Dylan” cropped jeans and pair with your favorite comfy sweater, Sam Edelman ankle strap heels, and a cross body bag from Micheal Kors. For the office, throw on a black bolero blazer from Hale Bob, and segue into the evening hours by forgoing the sweater and adding Hale Bob’s black studded silk tank, copper sequined jacket, and dazzling crystal peep toe pumps from Lauren Lorraine. From casual to dressy, let your wide leg cropped jeans work for you this Season.

denim midi skirt and knee high boots

DENIM MIDI SKIRT

From Stella McCartney to Saint Laurent, the trendiest skirt style to hit the runways this Season is the denim midi skirt. Flattering on most figures, we like Free People’s button down A-line denim midi skirt paired with Hale Bob’s floral lace crochet sweater and leather knee high boots from Calvin Klein. For hourglass shapes, go with Rachel Comey’s high waisted denim pencil skirt with flounce topped with a form fitting “Utilitarian” chic turtleneck from Hale Bob and suede ankle booties from Michael Kors. The athletic body would do best with Anthroplogie’s front split denim surplice midi skirt and Hale Bob’s snug black lace bodysuit, accessorized with Burberry’s classic crossbody bag and Vince Camuto’s slouchy black suede booties.

Denim shirt dress

DENIM SHIRT DRESS

Short or long, loose or fitted, be sure to include one of Fall’s favorite denim styles. Dressed up or down, the denim shirt dress will carry you through every holiday occasion and Seasonal event this year. For casual affairs, we love the Gat Rimon Agata longline denim shirt dress from Asos paired with Heidi Klein’s wide brim hat and fringe ankle boots from Sam Edelman. For holiday parties or a night out on the town, go with 7 For All Mankind’s fitted dark wash denim shirtdress accessorized with trendy peep toe booties from BCBGMAXAZRIA and a glam clutch from Betsey Johnson. If long is more your style, choose the denim maxi shirt dress from Nordstrom cinched with Isabel Marant’s black leather tie belt and chunky Stuart Weitzman suede wedge booties. However you choose to style, be sure to include the denim shirt dress into your Fall wardrobe this Season.

DENIM OVERALLS

From Sonia Rykiel to Moschino to Philip Lim, designers this Season are bringing back retro 90’s overalls. Look for an updated overall style on A-line dresses, wide leg culottes, and flare pants. For casual days, we like Levi’s classic relaxed fit denim overalls with “distressed” fabric for a “lived in” comfy feel. Go “boho” 70’s with Madewell’s dark wash sleek “legs for days” flare denim paired with your favorite long sleeved Tee, chunky wedge booties, and floppy hat. Or forgo the pants and try Current/Elliot’s denim overall dress topped with Liberty Garden’s powder pink long sleeve Tee or the long sleeve Menswear pullover on chillier days. Switch up your work day look and go with Shopbop’s black denim midi overall dress and classic pumps, then easily segue into the cocktail hour by layering Hale Bob’s chiffon and leather long sleeve blouse accessorized with Steve Madden’s pointy toe pumps.

DENIM LONG SLEEVE BLOUSE

Finally, the last denim trend to get a re-boot this Season is the classic denim button down. This Season, go big and bold with Nordstrom’s oversized Chambray denim shirt. Look chic in the office with Hudson’s Nico black skinny jeans or Hale Bob’s faux leather leggings, ivory Bolero jacket, and Nicole Miller tote and leopard wedge booties.

denim blouse and knit sweater for Fall

Top your work day look with a chunky sweater, crossbody bag, and comfy sneakers for a trip to the pumpkin patch, errand day, or lunch out. We like Liberty Garden’s layered ultra suede long sleeve sweater. Accessorize with Rebecca Minkoff’s crossbody bag and Adidas’ “Superstars” and you are ready to rock the perfect “Athleisure” look.

denim blouse and gray Tee and skirt combo

The denim shirt is also a great layering piece, keeping you warm yet chic against Fall and Winter’s chilly breezes. Simply tie your denim top around your favorite outfit in the daytime sun, and pull around your shoulders as the sun sets for an instant winter “jacket”. If oversized is not quite your style, you can also try Free People’s slim fit denim shirt, Topshop’s western styled blouse, or Marc Jacobs’ studded cropped denim top.

A TRIP TO THE PUMPKIN PATCH

It wouldn’t be Fall without a trip to a  pumpkin patch to pick out your favorite size, shape, and color. Today’s pumpkin patches have expanded to include carnival attractions, pony rides, and fair food to keep you and the family entertained for an entire day’s outing. If you are really feeling festive, plan a trip to visit one of Fodor’s Top Pumpkin Festivals across the US or check your local listings for pumpkin patches in your area. Since weather can be uncertain at this time of the year, be sure to include a snug scarf or oversized poncho trending for Fall 2015. We love Hale Bob’s olive lace trimmed satin shift dress paired with a purple printed scarf or a cozy gray fringe poncho from Zara and your favorite low heeled ankle booties for all day comfort and style.

Sweater and floral skirt for apple picking

APPLE PICKING

After you’ve picked out your favorite pumpkins for the Season, head to an apple orchard to harvest Fall’s sweetest and most versatile snack. Check out Huffington Post’s 10 best places to go apple picking or take a look at the Old Farmer’s Almanac for tips on planting your own apple tree. Look hip while harvesting in a flowy floral print skirt and cozy knit sweater paired with suede ankle boots perfect for all day picking. We like Bergdorf Goodman’s “Haute Hippie” floral skirt topped with Liberty Garden’s oversized gray knit sweatshirt and matching gray suede booties from Sam Edelman.

fall denim outfit for apple picking

If skirts aren’t really your style, go with a pair of skinny jeans tucked into knee high boots and a simple Tee topped with a leather jacket and scarf. We like the slightly faded wash “Chelsea” skinny jeans from Joe’s Jeans combined with your favorite loose Tee, a cool camel colored leather jacket from YOOX, accessorized with waterproof red knee high boots from Hunter and a warm cashmere red plaid scarf from Nordstrom. Whichever look you choose, show off your chic Autumn style picking apples in the orchard this Season.

midi length plaid skirt and sweater for wine tasting

WINE TASTING

Looking for adventure this Fall? Consider making a trip to California, known for some of the best wineries across the US. From the Navarro Vineyards in Mendocino to Beckman Vineyards near Santa Barbara, California’s wine makers hope you will stay awhile with updated tasting rooms, tours to the vineyards, wine and dinner pairings, and personal tastings with the owners themselves. If travel isn’t ideal this Season, make your own little “tour” to your city’s top restaurant wine offerings. Either way, you’ll look chic without trying too hard in a midi length plaid skirt, soft blush pink sweater, and classy ankle strap heels. We like the A line plaid midi skirt from Anthropologie paired with Liberty Garden’s soft powder pink pleated sweater and Sam Edelman’s round toed suede ankle strap heels. You are sure to shine with comfort, confidence, and class as you sip your way through your own wine taste outing.

little black dress for a Halloween party

HALLOWEEN PARTY

Not all Halloween parties call for outlandish costumes or hours of preparation. Say “yes” to your next Halloween event with confidence knowing we have you covered if “costumes are required.” Our simple solution is the go-to “Little Black Dress” paired with your favorite party shoes, elegant jewelry, and classic masquerade mask. We love Hale Bob’s beautiful black beaded silk velvet cocktail dress or the beaded stretch lace dress, both flattering and suitable for the occasion. If you like a little more “bling,” choose Hale Bob’s black sleeveless sequined cocktail dress accessorized with Betsey Johnson’s rhinestone enhanced black lace pumps, handmade vintage pumpkin necklace, and a Gothic crystal studded masquerade mask from the Victoria Trading Company. A fourth option is to go a la “Morticia” from The Addams Family with Hale Bob’s floor length solid black jersey halter knit dress. Don’t be “scared” away by your next party invite. Take our simple dress up tips and you’ll be the “Queen of the night.”

black blouse and floral midi skirt for Fall weddings

FALL WEDDING

While Summer weddings are easy to dress for with strapless sundresses and sheer fabrics, Fall can be a little tricky due to the chillier weather. For the cooler months, look for heavier skirt fabrics and long sleeve dress sweaters to keep you warm yet fabulous. We like Hale Bob’s floral print maxi skirt paired with the black chiffon and faux leather long sleeve blouse or go with Hale Bob’s black novelty floral lace crochet sweater, accessorized with Louise et Cie classic black pumps and elegant envelope clutch from Rebecca Minkoff.

floral maxi dress and leather jacket for Fall

For a simple Fall and Winter wedding style, sweep your hair into a low classic ballerina bun and pair you favorite Summer sundress with a black leather jacket or fur stole, black chunky heels,and black clutch. Get a similar look as picture above with Hale Bob’s mint floral maxi dress, black leather jacket from Halogen, Opening Ceremony’s black suede chunky heels, and classic Saint Laurent “Monogram” clutch. However you choose to style your next wedding outfit, don’t shy away from florals for Fall.

denim and plaid for Fall

AUTUMN PICNIC

No need to stay indoors just because the weather gets chilly. Browse the web for your city’s favorite hiking and picnic areas, pack a blanket and lunch, and spend the day with Nature. The most essential fashion necessities when outdoors include comfortable hiking boots and warm layers when the temperatures drop. Start your style with Hudson’s snug “Collin” skinny jeans, ivory mixed media flyaway top from Liberty Garden, red long sleeve plaid shirt from Rails, and complete with UGG’s water resistant black ankle boots. Change up your denim style with Citizen’s of Humanity’s variety of different Autumn colors from Lunchbag to Astro turf to Poison, appropriate for the Season.

Lauren Conrad fall outfit syle

Another fun Fall picnic idea is to rent a boat and spend the day on the sea. Visit your local lake or beach front for boat options and daily rates. We love celebrity Lauren Conrad’s chic sailing style with a warm sweater paired with skinny pants and comfy knee high boots topped with a sailor’s cap. Shop her look here with black “jeggings” from Joe’s Jeans, Liberty Garden’s cozy ultra suede sweatshirt, black knee highs from Barney’s New York, and wool sailor’s cap from Gucci, borrowed from the guys.

black maxi dress for Fall occasions

Take a little time off this Season, and plan to do something you love to refresh your soul and create lasting memories with your loved ones. Whether it’s romping around in a pumpkin patch, wine tasting through the hillside, or picnicking in Nature, these are the moments we most cherish and remember. No need to forgo style and class at each one of your holiday events. Take our simple tips and remember to… be you, be fabulous, and always be feminine.

MINIMALIST

Fall is all about expressing your unique style and individuality. Bend the rules this Season and go with the flow. No need for flashy accessories or overdone color. This Season look for understated jewelry, classic handbags, natural makeup, “undone” hair, and a simple wardrobe. Start your Fall beauty regime each day with Ren’s global protection day cream, formulated to protect skin against the environment’s harmful elements. Build a classic natural face with Bare Minerals’ tinted hydrating creamTartelette’s Amazonian Clay Matte eyeshadow, free of harmful chemicals, and finish with Bite Beauty’s all natural cinnamon plumping lip oil. Accessorize your Fall wardrobe with classic family vintage pieces, meaningful to you. Or help support creative artists around the world by shopping unique and handmade items on Etsy. We especially like the brass dagger necklace from Natura Metallum or the minimalist black leather handbag from LimorGalili. Wind down your day with natural face and body products from Edel Beauty Shop for your own little at home “spa” treatment. If simple, clean, classic beauty is your style, this is your Season to shine.

70’S FRINGE

As mentioned in our previous blogs, 70’s Boho fringe is here to stay. Look for fringe on jackets, handbags, ankle boots, blouses, skirts, and even jewelry. You can take the look further and update your “do” with a 70’s shag haircut and fringe bangs, one of this Season’s top trending hairstyles. Start your “Boho” look with Hale Bob’s orange short sleeve shirt with fringe, AC Collection’s flare jeans, Topshop’s floppy wool hat, and fringe leather handbag from Rebecca Minkoff. Accessorize your style with unique feather fringe earrings from designer Fiona Paxton or a metal fringe leather cuff from Cynthia Desser. Carry your “Boho” look into the evening hours with BCBGMAXAZARIA’s elegant gold fringe collar necklace paired with the Henna embossed fringe and leather  clutch. However you choose to style, be sure to include a little “Boho” fringe into your wardrobe collection this Fall.

Marsala hair color for Fall 2015 marsala nail color for Fall 2015 Marsala lipcolor

MARSALA

It’s wine with everything this Fall. Named the Pantone 2015 color of the year, “Marsala” is this Season’s most popular Autumn hue. From Monique Lhuillier to Rebecca Minkoff to Oscar de la Renta, the runways were buzzing with this color of choice for Fall fashion. Not only can you add a “Marsala” top or skirt to your wardrobe collection, but also look for the color in makeup and beauty trends. The next time you go for a mani/pedi, go with the look and ask for Butter London’s “Afters Patent Shine” nail lacquer. Or try a natural, “minimalist” makeup paired with a bright “Marsala” colored lipstick from Bobbi Brown. Looking for a hair color change? Ask your stylist about incorporating a hint of “Marsala” highlights to your natural color or take the plunge and go for an all over dye. Subtle or bold, be sure to include 2015’s color of the year to your beauty style.

JEWEL TONES

A second color trend for Fall 2015 is bright jewel tones like emerald green, sapphire blue, and ruby red. From Balmain to Altuzarra to Michael Kors, jewel tones glittered down the runways this Season. Now is the time to bring out your favorite blue sapphire ring or deep ruby earrings to sparkle in style. Accessorize your Fall wardrobe with a classic Dooney & Burke emerald green bucket handbag, Hale Bob’s purple printed silk scarf, or Calvin Klein’s red ankle boots for a splash of color at the office. Spruce up your Fall evening wear by treating yourself to a ruby bracelet from Kay Jewelers or create your own gemstone necklace with your choice of favorite jewels. Switch up your mani and go with Opi’s NEW Fall 2015 Venice Collection of jewel toned nail lacquers from crimson red to deep purple to blue sapphire. Don’t be afraid to live bold and bright this Fall and Winter Season.

blush pink makeup Fall 2015  blush pink overcoat Fall 2015

BLUSH PINK

A third favorite color trend for Fall 2015 is soft, blush pink. In contrast to bright “Marsala” and bold jewel tones, powder pink is the perfect counterbalance. Incorporate the look into your daily beauty routine with Too Faced’s “Boudoir Eyes” eyeshadow in soft pinks, a sweep of Nars‘ iconic glittery pink blush, and Dior’s Addict luscious pink lip polish. Brighten up the dreariest days ahead with Liberty Garden’s new powder pink pleated sweatshirt paired with Hale Bob’s ivory suede leggings and powder pink ballerina flats from Tod’s. If pink is a little too “girly” for your taste, try accessorizing with a Saint Laurent mini “Paris” clutch, delicate tourmaline stud earrings from Anthropologie, or a warm scarf from Missoni.

suede ankle booties Fall 2015 oxford ankle booties Fall and Winter 2015 vintage ankle boot Chloe collection Fall 2015

ANKLE BOOTIES

If you only add one new piece to your wardrobe collection this Fall, choose the ankle boot. From wedge, to fringe, to oxford, to fur trimmed, to vintage, the ankle bootie is your “go to” shoe of the Season. With just the right accessories and style, your ankle boots are versatile enough to take you from work to play to cocktail hour. Try Calvin Klein’s “Charlaine” wedge ankle boot for classic style and all day comfort. Go “Boho” with Steve Madden’s fringe suede “Countryy” pointy toe booties or vintage with Phillip Lim’s “Harleth” lace-up bootie. One of the newest styles to hit the runways this year is the Loafer bootie. We loved Opening Ceremony’s marbleized loafer booties on the runways from Fall Fashion Week 2015. Get a similar look with the “Zan” black leather loafer bootie from Opening Ceremony at Nordstrom or go with Tod’s slip on loafer boot with trending “Marsala” ombre color. There are a variety of patterns, colors, and shapes to choose from as you shop your favorite ankle boot style.

Fall hair, makeup and accessories

Which will you choose to try this Season? A new shag haircut or a sapphire  blue manicure? A blush pink clutch or ankle booties? “Marsala” lip color or fresh faced look? With Fall’s variety of hairstyle, make-up, and color choices, anything goes this year. Be bold. Try one of our top selections this Season and modify to suit your style. Be your own fashion stylist and live everyday being you, being fabulous and always being feminine.

LEATHER WEATHER

black leather jacket and cross body bag for Fall

As we welcomed the first day of Fall on Wednesday, it is time to start planning our Autumn and Winter wardrobe essentials. With cooler temperatures comes heavier fabrics, longer sleeves, and lots of layers. We start our Fall clothing necessities with this week’s topic “Leather Weather.” While the quintessential black leather jacket will never go out of style, we’ve picked some of our other favorite leather options that you might want to try this year. So snuggle down with your pumpkin spice latte and take a look at our top picks for this Season’s “Leather Weather” style.

Leather skirt for the office

LEATHER FOR THE OFFICE

Who says leather doesn’t fit in an office setting? This Season, live on the edge and bring your leather out to work with you. In order to keep your look classic and sophisticated, stick to more tailored leather pieces like mid-length pencil skirts, a tailored leather jacket, or button down leather vest. We like the chic faux wrap black leather pencil skirt from Lafayette 148 New York paired with Hale Bob’s black silk button down blouse and Michael Kors’ classic black kitten heels with extra flex for all day comfort. Accessorize your workday look with Royce Leather’s black briefcase and delicate black leather gloves from Prada for chillier Fall mornings. This year is all about breaking the fashion “rules” and wearing styles that work for you. What better way to kickstart the new Season than to wear your favorite leather piece to the workplace next week.

Olivia Palermo in black leather leggings

EVERYDAY CASUAL

One of the simplest ways to stay styled and fabulous for Fall is the leather legging. Adaptable to any occasion, pair black leather leggings with your favorite chunky sweater and booties for daytime errands or throw on a flowy blouse and heels for lunch with the girls. We love celebrity Olivia Palmero’s simple legging style pictured above accessorized with a cozy knit sweater, handbag, fun ankle heels, and casual topknot. While leather leggings can run between the $1,700-$2,000 range, get her similar look with Ralph Lauren’s paneled faux black leather leggings topped with Hale Bob’s gray ombre knit pullover sweater and funky ankle strap heels from Charles David. Be sure to add leather leggings to your closet this Season for quick, easy styling throughout the Fall and Winter days ahead.

leather leggings for Athleisure style

LEATHER ATHLEISURE

Make your leather leggings go double duty and pair with your favorite sweatshirt and sneakers for a trendy “Athleisure” look. From Alexander Wang’s slouchy off-duty street wear to Michael Kors’ athletic tanks spotted at last week’s New York Fashion Week Spring 2016 Collection, it looks like this trend is here to stay. We like Hale Bob’s black quilted faux leather leggings paired with Liberty Garden’s cozy long sleeve sweatshirt and Nike’s customizable running sneaker. Simply throw on a tailored wool blazer from Laundry or Hale Bob’s long teal boucle coat and you are ready for meetings or lunch out after your workout.

black leather dress

DATE NIGHT

Don’t forget to add a bit of edge to your next evening out on the town with a chic leather dress. From fringe to sheath to A line, we love the new leather dress silhouettes designers are creating this Fall. For date night, try Nicole Miller’s short sleeve black leather sheath dress accessorized with chunky gold jewelry and rose gold pumps from designer Sophia Webster for a bit of elegance contrasting against the sleek leather. If sleek  isn’t quite your style, go with BCBGMAXAZARIA’s A line sleeveless knee length dress perfect for the nightlife and also suitable for the next morning’s business breakfast or meetings at the office.

black leather fringe dress for Fall

A third leather dress style we love this Season is the fringe look. Carry Summer’s carefree “Boho” spirit with you into the cooler months of Autumn with a sweeping black leather fringe dress. We love the Total Eclipse long black dress from Nasty Gal as pictured above or go with a more classic look with the long sleeve fringe party dress from YOOX. Whichever leather dress style you choose, be sure to update your accessories to reflect the chillier weather with warm ankle booties or “cage” heels, leather clutch, and matching leather jacket.

Leather vest and maxi dress for Fall

LEATHER VEST

When we think of the leather vest, the first image that comes to mind is a Harley Davidson bike rider. However, designers this year are re-imagining the iconic leather vest and have re-fashioned the look to suit any style or taste. From Phillip Lam’s tailored shirt length style to Saint Laurent’s fringe to IRO’s fur trimmed, the black leather vest has come along way from it’s motorcycle stigma. Try the look this Fall paired with your favorite skinny jeans and white Tee or style over your favorite maxi dress from Summer. We like Lucky Brand’s slouchy black leather vest or go with a longer style in Neiman Marcus’ sleeveless leather zip front vest. If cropped suits you more, try Topshop’s “Sylvia” faux leather Moto vest or Eileen Fisher’s beautiful draped black leather vest. Whatever style you choose, the leather vest is a perfect layering accessory to include into your Fall wardrobe this Season.

leather skirt paired with plaid shirt

LEATHER & PLAID

Combine two favorite Fall patterns with leather and plaid. No need to reserve your cozy flannel for relaxing days at home. Bring your plaid out to shine paired with your favorite black leather pencil skirt and heels. We like Ann Taylor’s faux leather skirt topped with Ralph Lauren’s plaid cotton blouse and black ankle strap heels from Sam Edelman.

black leather leggings and plaid flannel shirt

Another leather and plaid style combo to try for Fall is your favorite leather leggings paired with a cozy flannel. We like Hale Bob’s quilted leggings combined with the perfect plaid flannel shirt from Current/Elliott and comfy suede wedges from designer Pedro Garcia. You can also accessorize your look with your favorite sneakers and beanie for a cool, casual “Athleisure” style. Step out in style this Season with Fall’s favorite leather and plaid.

JEWEL TONED LEATHER

Leather doesn’t have to come in just black or white. Try the “jewel toned” trend this Season and bring a little color to Fall and Winter’s cold, blustery days. Look for leather skirts, jackets, and handbags in emerald green, canary yellow, crimson scarlet, or deep purple. We like Bagatelle’s classic red bomber jacket, perfect for the office or a night on the town. Or go with Ann Taylor’s emerald green pencil skirt paired with Hale Bob’s ivory silk charmeuse blouse and Jimmy Choo’s nude patent leather pump. Be the talk of the town this year and accessorize your wardrobe  with a bright yellow clutch from Fendi or go casual with a yellow leather backpack from Marc Jacobs. This Fall, don’t be shy. Add a little color to your wardrobe collection.

canary yellow leather jacket and handbag

Whichever way you choose, be sure to include a little edgy leather into your wardrobe this Season. Whether you choose a sleek pencil skirt, an A line dress, comfy leggings or a bright yellow handbag, leather is your “go to” fashion for easy yet chic Fall style. Start shopping the trend today and remember our motto to be you, be fabulous, and always be feminine.

HOW TO WEAR WHITE AFTER LABOR DAY

Mango Designer Clothes Women Fashion White Outfits

Now that Labor Day has passed, is it time to put away all of our favorite white fashion outfits? No. This Season is all about re-imagining your fashion style and ingenuity. The old adage of “no whites after labor Day” is passé.  This week, we will show how to keep your Summer whites alive throughout the cooler Fall and Winter months with just the right accessories. As the weather chills, you can keep the fresh breezy bright whites of Summer by adding heavier layers and Fall accessories, and you can also begin to add Winter’s favorite off-white and ivory colors to your wardrobe collection. Scroll down for our favorite ways to incorporate white into your everyday fashion style this Season.

white skinny jeans for Fall

WHITE SKINNY JEANS

One of our favorite versatile looks for Fall Fashion is the skinny white jean. Though wide leg and boyfriend jeans are having a moment on the fashion scene, you can’t go wrong with this always trendy denim style. Update your look for 2015 by choosing a white skinny in a cropped fit. We like Joe’s Jeans high water cropped jeans in white leopard print for perfect texture and style. Pair with Liberty Garden’s short sleeve gray knit sweatshirt and layer with your favorite denim blouse. Complete your outfit with MTNG Orginials’ suede ankle boots and a trendy cross body bag from Ivanka Trump and you are ready to head into the Fall Season in style. No need to throw your white skinnies to the back of the closet. With a little creative pairing, your white jeans can rock the cooler months too.

White lounge pants street style

WHITE LOUNGE PANTS

Chillier Autumn months make us yearn for pumpkin spice lattes, cozy cashmere sweaters, and comfy knit pants. Bring your lounge pants out to the streets this fall in an “Athleisure” style all your own. For a unique and updated look, try Liberty Garden’s new distressed white lounge pants paired with your favorite Tee and chic ballerina flats. As the weather cools, top your pants with Liberty Garden’s ivory color block sweatshirt or try the gray ombre knit sweater for a dressier look. Let your white lounge pants go beyond the comfort of your home this Fall and bring them out to lunch with the girls, errands out on the town, or a trip to your favorite coffee shop.

8ee11f33a05101f36b35f7e343c98436  white wide leg pants and black sweater

WIDE LEG TROUSERS

Though flowy white wide leg trousers usually cry “summer style,” we’ll show you how to style your favorite pants for Fall. No need to throw them to the back of the closet as the weather cools. Simply pair with your coziest chunky knit sweater or contrast with the trending colors for Fall. Start with Hale Bob’s white studded wide leg pants and top with Hale Bob’s cozy floral lace crochet sweater or white sequined embroidered lace top for an evening out on the town. Choose a completely different look by pairing with the contrasting colors of Fall. Try Liberty Garden’s black fur shoulder long sleeve shirt or the tattered long sleeve top in Cashmere Rose, one of this Season’s trendiest colors. Don’t forget to include your white wide leg pants for perfect Fall style.

white leggings for Fall

WHITE LEGGINGS

Our final favorite white pant style to carry with you into the Fall months are leggings. On those busy Fall days when you don’t have time to think about what to wear, throw on your favorite white leggings and shine in style. Easily pair with your favorite loose white Tee and ankle booties for a carefree stylish look, or combine with your favorite silky blouse, tailored jacket and strappy heels for an evening out. We love Hale Bob’s ivory leggings with ultra suede with extra warmth during the coming months. On casual days out, top with Liberty Garden’s ivory lace back swing Tee and cozy gray ankle boots from Esseutesse. Stay warm on a cold night out in your suede leggings paired with Hale Bob’s ivory camisole, copper sequined jacket, Sam Edelman’s white open toed booties, and complete with Rebecca Minkoff’s ivory leather envelope clutch.

white lace maxi dress for Fall

WHITE LACE MAXI DRESS

No need to throw your Summer “Boho” style out the window this Fall Season. With the perfect Fall accessories, you can keep your Summer “chill” and still stay stylish for the cooler months ahead. Pair your favorite white lace dresses so perfect for the beach with chunkier ankle boots, knee high boots, or trendy classic oxfords accessorized with a warmer black leather jacket or your favorite cozy suede fringe jacket. If you missed out on Summer’s “Boho” style, get started today with Hale Bob’s sleeveless long lace dress with half slip. Complete your Fall look by adding a black leather fringe jacket from Free People, black fringe ankle booties from Steve Madden, and a matching black fringe cross body bag NEW from Ash. For a night out on the town, accessorize your lace dress with Hale Bob’s white washed silk jacket, white lace booties from Lauren Lorraine, and a Rebecca Minkoff evening clutch. Boho or Classic. Casual or dressy. Don’t exclude the white lace dress from your Fall Fashion wardrobe this year.

white maxi skirt for Fall

WHITE MAXI SKIRT

Our final favorite Summer trend you don’t have to let go of for Fall is the white maxi skirt. A perfect Summer staple, segue into cooler weather by adding a cozy sweater, or wool jacket, and accessorizing with warm winter knee high boots or ankle booties. Pull out Hale Bob’s white studded satin maxi skirt from Summer and pair with your favorite fitted black tee, black bolero jacket from Hale Bob, and black fringe ankle booties from Sam Edelman for perfect workplace style. Or sweep your hair into a messy topknot and go “Athleisure” with Liberty Garden’s ivory ultra suede long sleeve shirt and your favorite comfy white sneakers. Dress up the maxi skirt by layering Hale Bob’s warm black fur vest over a silky long sleeved white blouse and accessorize with deluxe Badgley Mischka white crystal heels and matching Menbur clutch. Whether dressy or casual, be sure to keep the white maxi skirt as a Fall staple this year.

white fashion for Fall

No need to throw your Summer whites to the back of the closet. Bring them out to shine bright during the dreariest of Fall and Winter days. Remember to forgo your favorite sandals and cotton sweaters in favor of heavier knits and snug booties to reflect the changing Seasons.

So crank up some NSYNC and start shopping this year’s latest fashion craze.

90's floral maxi skirt

FLORAL MAXI SKIRT

Channel a little Winona Ryder in “Reality Bites” with an flowy floral maxi skirt this Fall. Not only perfect paired with a plain white Tee and sandals, the floral maxi also easily segues into the cooler months of the Season. We love Liberty Garden’s white floral printed maxi skirt paired with an ivory lace jersey tank and Vince Camuto black maxi cardigan. Update the iconic 90’s Doc Martens style with this year’s trendy “Indica” Mary Jane shoe and complete your look with rag & bone’s NEW wool brim hat. You are ready to rock the streets in your updated 90’s style fashion.

baggy denim jeans and crop top with plaid shirt

BAGGY JEANS

Push your skinnies and your boot cuts to the back and make way for this Fall’s most popular denim trend- baggy jeans. Fashion is easy with the baggy jean. Grab a pair out of your brother or husband’s closet, roll the cuffs, throw on a Tee and you are ready to go. Or shop a pair of your favorite “boyfriend” jeans in cropped, distressed, or low rise. We love AC Collection’s Mystique boyfriend jeans or go for a darker wash with the Frenzy denim. If you prefer the cropped style, we love Citizen’s of Humanity’s dark wash relaxed cropped jeans paired with Hale Bob’s black leather cami and Calvin Klein’s ankle strap heels or your favorite cozy booties. Throw on Saint Laurent’s NEW black beaded beanie, tie on your favorite flannel, and your updated 90’s look is complete.

90's flannel with leggings

LEGGINGS & PLAID SHIRT

Nothing says “90’s” more than the classic flannel shirt. Back in the day, the flannel shirt was paired with everything from shorts to jeans to slip dresses to workout wear. This Season, update the 90’s flannel by combining with your favorite sleek leggings or “jeggings,” slouchy Tee, and flat ankle boots. Accessorize with this Season’s most popular cross body bag, cozy wool beanie, and your look is complete. Try Hale Bob’s black stretch Ponte leggings or opt for trendy Joe’s Jeans’ “jeggings,” a cross between jeans and leggings. Add a comfy ivory Tee from Liberty Garden, a matching gray scarf and beanie from Halogen, and a Vince Camuto cross body bag for a perfect updated casual 90’s style.

90's floral dress

BABYDOLL DRESS

One of the most popular dress silhouettes of the 90’s was the “Babydoll” dress, characterized by a fitted empire bodice and a dropped waistline. Popular T.V. shows like “Friends” and “Beverly Hills 90210” made this frock famous for street wear fashion. Flashback a few decades in your own dress, updated for 2015. We love Hale Bob’s long sleeve Chevron print shift dress or go with a similar dropped waist style in Hale Bob’s silk Charmeuse shirt dress. Go true 90’s style and pair with over-the-knee stocking socks and Mary Jane’s or update your look with trendy knee high boots from Guess and a floppy hat from Calvin Klein as featured above. Whichever way you choose to style your look, add the comfy yet always fashionable Babydoll dress to your wardrobe collection this Fall.

90's jean overalls

DENIM OVERALLS

From Sonia Rykiel to Rebecca Minkoff, the denim overall is making a huge comeback for 2015. Designers this Season are re-imagining the overall look by adding a skinny jean fit or a cropped leg or a distressed wear. You can fit overalls into your everyday wardrobe by pairing with a tank and your favorite sneakers, or glam it up with your favorite heels and clutch. We like the slim fit faded Blank denim overalls from Shopbop accessorized with your favorite long sleeved blouse, silver ankle strap heels from Fendi and Vince Camuto colorblock envelope clutch. If you are looking for a new denim look this Fall, include overalls into your wardrobe this year.

cable knit sweater and plaid skirt

CABLE KNIT SWEATER AND PLAID SKIRT

Get cozy this Fall in a chunky cable knit sweater and chic plaid skirt a la “Cher” from 1995’s Clueless. Update the look for 2015 by accessorizing with your favorite Fall items such as ankle boots and a floppy hat. You can even go “Athleisure” with the style in your favorite sneakers and baseball cap. Or dress it up for a night on the town with your “go to” evening heels and sequined clutch. We love Liberty Garden’s “mixed media” fur trimmed cable knit sweater paired with a Fred Perry A-line plaid skirt from Asos and gray ankle booties from Free People. Go with a longer skirt option for the workplace in Brooks Brothers’ Signature plaid midi skirt, a trending length for Fall 2015.

90's style midi skirt and slouchy sweater

MIDI SKIRT

Our final top choice for 90’s style revisited is the midi length skirt. From designer Amy Smilovic for Tibi to Michael Kors to Dolce & Gabbana, Fall’s Fashion Runways were filled with the midi skirt and dress length style. You can choose from patterned or solid, A-line or pencil, cotton or wool, mixed media or plain. There are no limits to how you can style the midi skirt. We love Liberty Garden’s NEW black lace midi skirt paired perfectly with the ivory ultra suede tank and suede ankle booties from Ivanka Trump. Or cozy up to Liberty Garden’s gray ombre knit sweater on chillier Autumn days. For a night on the town, dress up your midi skirt with Hale Bob’s black lace bodysuit, Loeffler Randall’s black lace-up sandals, and Whiting & Davis’ NEW black crystal clutch. Your midi skirt can go with you wherever your activities take you this Season.

90's grunge street wearBefore Google and the iPhone craze, the 90’s were characterized by individuality, spontaneity, and the freedom of expressing yourself. It was cool to peruse thrift stores in search of the perfect flannel. Or head to the mall for a new pair of Doc Martens. Though media was a part of daily life, people were not as “glued” to technology as we are today. So step back in time this Season, and take the time to put away your phone and have lunch with the girls. Go for a walk in the park on your next lunch break instead of staring at the walls of your gym. Take the time to enjoy the world, talk not text, be yourself, and live life. Remember our motto here at Posh at Play: Be You, Be fabulous, and always be Feminine.
