Statement Outerwear For Fall

Outerwear is essential for the upcoming months as the days grow colder. One of the best ways to spice up an outfit is to pair it with a bold coat or sweater. This is perfect for a fun weekend especially if it includes an outdoor adventure. DSC04247

Shag coats are a huge trend this season. If you love the look of fur, but would rather go faux, this is the perfect alternative. Pair a shag coat with a black shirt dress, tights, and booties for a look that keeps you warm and stylish.



Statement jackets look great when worn with simple, basic silhouettes. (You can find a similar look at Forever 21)

Vests are also popular this fall. They are lightweight and perfect for those warmer autumn days. Pair a vest with your favorite pair of jeans and a long sleeve t-shirt. Opt for simple accessories such as a watch or small chain necklace. They are classic and keep the focus on the vest.

Vests are great layering pieces. They can be worn with pants, skirts, or dresses.  (You can find this vest at Zara ).


Will you be wearing a statement jacket this season? Be daring, show it off on your next afternoon out with friends. From fringe to bold patterns or even sparkle, fall is all about making a statement!

Trendy Tuesday: The Bomber Jacket


Though for some of us winter may carry on for a few more months, it's time to start thinking about transition pieces and springtime jackets! Yippee! We can almost dream of putting away our chic wool pea-coats and heading towards warmer days! Coming your way this spring - bomber jackets. 11B12EBLK_2_large (This Topshop number is fresh and fun for spring!)

But unlike WWII days, this retro look has stepped it up a notch. This spring look for bold patterns, fun prints, and exciting textures - lace, leather, satin, and everything in between!

Coming fresh off the runway from Marc Jacobs, Tracy Reese, and Alexander Wang, bomber jackets are ditching the old wool lining and picking up new sophistication with mesh detailing, perforated leather, and sweet silky prints - perfect for toning down a dressy outfit or adding a sporty (yet girly) vibe to daily jeans.


While we love designer pieces, and even these jackets found from J. Crew and Topshop (and who wouldn't?!) Who can afford the steep prices that come with them?

Both of these bomber jackets from Topshop (leopard found here, foil print found here).

Luckily, Forever 21 is forever there to save our wardrobes. With a plethora of adorable - and affordable - bomber jackets, this trend will not only keep you cute, but keep your wallet happy too!


This leopard print bomber is comparable to the topshop jacket seen above, but without the steep $160 price tag.


This fresh Geo-print bomber jacket is light enough to stay with you as the seasons change and the air gets warmer.



We're loving this fun twist on the bomber jacket - classic leather body, but cool, cute lace sleeves! Find it at Forever 21 - and bonus points for being under $40!

Stay trendy, ladies!
