As we transition from summer to fall, we typically look to add three basic items to our wardrobe; a boot, a jacket, and a dress or pant featuring some sort of pattern. Would you agree? This past week, I attended the Macy’s Annual Fall Fashion Show and was put on to some new ways of rocking some of those same basic pieces we look into year after year. This event was hosted by Carson Kressley with a special performance by R&B singer and Song writer Sevyn Streeter!
The Perfect Bootie
If last fall was about the over-the-knee boot, then this fall will definitely be about the short bootie. On the runway at Macy’s we’ve seen this boot in a variety of patterns and embellishments.
- Floral Bootie- Similar here
- Leopard Bootie- Similar here
- Patent Bootie – Similar here
Aside from its functional purpose of keeping us warm, a jacket is a great way of making a statement during the fall and there are several ways of doing so:
- Bomber Jacket- Similar Here
- Utility Jacket- Similar Here
- Embroidered Jean Jacket- Similar here
Playing with Patterns
Mixing up patterns can be pretty fun no matter the season. Though plaid is a pattern typical for the season, don’t be afraid to wear two opposite patterns together!
After the fashion show concluded, recording artist Sevyn Street took to the stage for an amazing performance! She was nice enough to pose for pictures with everyone after the event!
I even managed to get one with the host, Carson Kressley! Don’t we just look fab?
