Lavendar's Top 5 Trends for Fall! September 05 2012, 0 Comments

It's almost time for that first crisp cool day of FALL that we all crave after the hot, balmy weather of Summer!!  So you know what that means...break out the layering tees, leggings, skinny jeans and boots!!!  The lavendar girl's have picked out some of their favorite trends for Fall that you'll see this season on your favorite celebs, in all the Style magazine's and in-store at Lavendar SOON!!!

Every year some form of the "bootie" comes along and takes over every woman's closet out there!!  Last year it was the knee-high boot, and although you'll see them again this year, you'll see more and more celebrities strutting their stuff in the short bootie!  Last season's styles, and the season before that (the riding boot) are still in style, so don't fret!!!  You'll get lots of wear out of both this season, but the the ankle bootie is getting all the rage!!  From updated classics, to suede with fringe, you'll see all kinds of variations in this bootie. Our personal favorite...(drum roll!!!)...the western style with a little sass of fringe. We have these Sam Edelman Louie fringe ankle booties in-store now for $160 in Cocoa and Putty!!!  They can be worn with those cute summer dresses you just can't seem to give up for Fall and still rock them with those new pair of skinny jeans you've been dying to strut around town!!!

It seemed like Spring and Summer dumped a big assortment of color into our closets all at once...we aren't complaining, it's one of our favorite trends!!!  We LOVE denim and will always be in love with the classic dark wash for Fall, BUT we aren't going to lie, we were a little excited to see that the colored denim "trend" is coming back into our lives for Fall!!  From cobalt blue, to neon pink and a little bit of burnt orange to match those falling leaves, these colored skinnies are going to be everywhere!!  Pair them with a riding boot and oversized sweater for a more casual look or dress them up with your favorite pumps and classic v-neck tee and leather jacket for that night on the town with your besties!! Our personal favorite is the Hudson Nico Skinny in "Blue my Mind," $145.00 and in-store NOW!!  But if Hudson isn't your go-to jean, don't worry, we have black cherry in Sanctuary for $138, Paige in Deep Purple for $178 and more Joe's colors coming soon!!!

What better way to show off your new colored denim for Fall than pairing it with the must-have denim tops for Fall!! This trend really entered our wardrobes this Spring but has managed to make it's way into Fall!  Bella Dahl offers trendy, comfy "men's shirts" in all styles and colors...so we've filled the store with them in every color, $101!! Our favorite thing about this trend is the variety of washes the "denim" tops are available in! Pair a lighter colored wash with your favorite pair of dark colored skinnies (hint, hint...your black cherry Sanctuary's!) or go with an edgy look and pair a darker wash top with black or grey skinnies (our favorites of course are Citizen of Humanity in Hound for $209 in-store NOW!! Any way you decide to rock this new trend, you'll look like your ready to walk the streets of New York in style!!

If there is one classic in your closet that WILL NEVER go out of style, it's faux fur! Not only does it keep you cozy and warm on those frigid nights in the cool winter weather, but it makes you look like a fashion maven in the making!! Our personal favorites this year are from designers Ella Moss, Tart, and 525 America!!  We'll have different variations of this must have for Fall in all different colors, prices and styles! Wear your fur casual during the day with your favorite layering tee, skinnys and riding boots or dress it up at night with black leatherette skinnys and black pumps!!

From runway shows to style magazines, leather is where it's at this season!! Real or fake, it's safe to say that leather is going to be your "go to" item for Fall. You can play it safe with a riding boot like our new riding boot from Dolce Vita that are $215.00 or go edgy with the hottest trend, leatherette denim!! Plus, this is also a great chance to pull out that awesome leather jacket from your closet that is in style EVERY season!! This trend is going to look great with button up sheer tops like the ones from Olive & Oak that will be in stores soon that only retail between $60 - $80!!
