So in anticipation of my favourite time of the year I decided I needed to post a back to school wish list of essentials for the Fall of 2012. I know everyone does it. Back to School shopping. Even though the new year technically starts in January each year, I always feel a sense of new beginnings when the new school year rolls around. Although this is my last and final year at Guelph… I’m hoping I’ll never lose this feeling of excitement.
So here I’ve put together a list of new trends and basics I think each girl should try in order to have a great year, whether you’re in school or not.
1. Fall Boots. Ok so for me, this is a big one. You need to go big or go home. I honestly think every girl should own a pair of Over the Knee boots, Equestrian boots, Western style boots, and Motorcycle boots (and that list does not even include booties). Unless you have copious amounts of money to spend (which I do not = starving student), I think you should focus on acquiring whichever style will benefit your whole wardrobe this season. Over the years, you may collect each style (this is what I am aiming for), but for now start with one because these suckers can get expensive.
The Equestrian Boot:
Frye “Dorado” Riding Boot $697
Frye “Melissa Button” Boot $327.95
Frye “Engineer 12R” Boot $217.95
The Over the Knee
Stuart Weitzman ‘5050’ Over the Knee Boot $595
2. Leather. This season the runway seemed to feature lots of the Cranberry/Burgundy coloured leather. If you take this fashion risk then kudos to you, but I think I’ll stick with plain old black. My favourite way to wear leather is with leggings!
Olivia Palermo rocking leather leggings:
rag & bone/JEAN Stretch Leather Leggings in Wine $880
(these are expensive…below I show a faux leather/jean done by citizens of humanity)
Citizens of Humanity “Rocket” Skinny Faux Leather Jeans $229
3. Cozy Sweaters. This year I’ve noticed that the turtle neck and cowl neck are back in style. I’m all for anything cozy and big. It’s All about comfort!
Vince Luxury Cowl Sweater $345
Those are my 3 key essentials for this fall. Keep following to find out which Fall accessories are in this season.
Thanks guys and happy fall!
