It’s been a year filled with unexpected turns. And, here we are in August. A flashback post on one of my social channels reminded me that we’re usually talking excitedly about fall fashion around this time. It prompted me to begin identifying my favorite styles for the season ahead. I’ll be sharing all those top picks in a series of posts beginning today. For today’s edition, I shopped my closet to showcase the ruffles trend and the puff sleeves trend.
What I’m wearing:
The ruffles trend is going to be huge this fall. I love the drama and interest ruffles can add to otherwise simple pieces. In the right fabric, ruffled items can be versatile too. My ruffle skirt is by Topshop (inventory is very limited now because it’s 50% off). I bought it early in the year, and as you can imagine, I haven’t worn until now. I’m wearing it casually today. But, since it’s a taffeta skirt, I could easily dress it up for a fancier affair.
Thank goodness, right? If you’re a fan of puff sleeves, you’ve probably amassed quite the collection of items with full sleeves. Well, the trend is here to stay. We’re going to see puff sleeves on everything from sweaters to coats. I bought my puff-sleeve denim jacket during a huge Zara sale at the top of the year. It has quickly become a go-to casual topper. No surprise, Zara brought it back (see it here).
It feels good looking forward to the season ahead. Stay tuned for more chats on fall trends. Go here for another fall transitional look.
