Maureen’s Fall Must Haves

8.01.2013 WRITTEN BY Maureen How to Wear

Being the beach girl that I am, thinking about fall and winter is always a little difficult for me, but sightings of layers, boots and chunky knits warms me up to the idea. Staying totally on trend during the cooler months can be somewhat of a challenge for those of us on the west coast with fall trends taking on a more serious tone. I’m delighted to see that happy is haute this coming season!

Spring graphics are transitioning into fall and personally I couldn’t be more excited for a trend that’s both chic and kitschy. Florals scream happy and add instant color, light and punch to any outfit. Wear them boldly this fall/winter for a fresh take.

Animal prints, something I consider a classic, is leaving its print this fall. Never one to shy away from these prints – I’m very excited it’s trending so I can get some of my Tog + Porter ladies to take some primal risks!

So happy gold is sticking around. It could be the blonde hair, or the 80’s vibe – but I love anything gold and am excited for it to be worn as a lame’, foil, knit, print, brocade and the list goes on and on. It adds an air of sophistication to anything and allows for a more grown up look when paired with the animal print and loud graphics that are on trend.

Personally I’ve never needed Conde Nast or Fashion Week to tell me fur was in – but fur is in!  So, let’s wear it. Faux or vintage, wear it in big, statement making ways. Jackets. Skirts. Trims. If it’s fur I’ll try it!
