This Fabulous Look – for Less!

Emma Watson, 2012.

Emma Watson has been on fire lately. Every time she steps out for the premieres of her new movie, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” she causes a sensation in the fashion world. Each perfectly tailored dress fits like a glove and looks beyond fabulous on her. While some of her intricate dresses may be hard to find in a smaller price range, this particular ensemble isn’t too hard to recreate on a budget.

Arden B., $48.99

The leather blazer is perfectly instep with today’s trends, and could easily translate as a staple to your fall wardrobe for years to come. You can opt for a moto jacket, an actual leather blazer, or a boxier jacket with leather trim. Anything leather is a must-have for this season, so feel free to experiment!

The play on prints is fun and youthful, on trend, and an easy way to feminize a tough piece of leather. Just make sure one pattern stands out while the other blends in; you don’t want your look to become chaotic!

You’ll need some simple heels to top off your fabulous outfit. Pick a neutral color, preferably one that goes with your jacket. Keep it simple, elegant, and feminine.

Keep your accessories to a minimum and use them just to accent your outfit – you don’t want them to take center stage. Go with a chic clutch like Emma, in a neutral or toned-down color.

And there you have it, the perfect look-for-less to start the fall season off with! Add a cute ponytail, rosy cheeks, and a bright pink lip to complete the look. And remember, don’t be afraid to be fabulous!

Fabulous Fall Predictions

Last season’s fall clothing going on sale, pre-fall fashion shows, and fall previews online can only mean one thing: the next season is around the corner, coming fast. Here are some trend predictions of mine and where to find them (at an affordable price) so that you can fully prepare for this fabulous season.

Houndstooth prints.

On the runways:

Salvatore Ferragamo, classy and sassy.

This classic print is back. Personally, I love it because it adds some extra pizzaz to an otherwise simple black and white look. Mix it up with colored houndstooth prints or off-center ones to modernize this glamorous look.

For your closets:

Fluffy and fearless.

On the runways:

Alexander McQueen, fall 2012. The big red dress is also on an upcoming cover for Harper’s Bazaar.

At first glance, you’d probably think that this idea is so un-fabulous. But really, I think it’s great. What better way to brace yourself for the upcoming cold months and get into the winter mindset than by wearing fun, fluffy, cuddly clothes? Now, you don’t have to be so over-the-top, obviously (think of runways as real life fashion, exaggerated about 100 times over). And please, do NOT be afraid of a belt. A little cinching could do wonders to make this trend work for you. (Bonus – these items will seamlessly translate to your winter wardrobe.)

For your closets:

This trend is particularly hard to shop for – so go out and browse for fluffy, voluminous, fun clothes and accessories. This will probably translate to a more tame faux fur kind of trend off the runways, so here are a few finds to get you started.

Gold.

On the runways:

Dolce & Gabbana, fall 2012.

Just in time for the leaves to start changing to similar and complementary hues, gold is making a comeback. This is an epidemic of fabulous for me and many other brunettes with dark eyes who just look better with some nice, shiny gold to play up our natural coloring. Enjoy it while you can.

For your closets:

Leather.

On the runway:

Versace, fall 2012.

The fabulous, dark, and glamorous look of leather is set to be huge trend for the upcoming fall season. Pair it with black staple items for a sophisticated, vamp-chic look or add-on some gold and bright accents for a more cheery effect.

These are just a few of the trends I predict we’ll see in our favorite stores as fall approaches. So get a head start and grab some now! It’s sure to be a fabulous fall – so don’t be afraid to be fabulous!
