Any moment now the big fat delicious September issues of your favorite fashion magazines will land in your mailbox packed full of Fall Fashion goodness.
Time to get those pens ready and take note of What’s in, What’s Out and What you need to get your hands on NOW!
As a Fashion stylist I am always working a season ahead (right now I’m looking at trends and planning shoots for Resort 2018) so its pretty fair to say that I know my way around Fall 2017’s must-haves (I have been working with them since June).
To get you up to Fall Fashion speed and in the fashion-know I focused this weeks Outfit of the Day on three of my favorite Fall 2017 trends: moody florals, high necklines and boxy silhouettes.
Moody Florals are not only an absolute must-have for fall they are also the most seamless way to transition between seasons. Your fresh, light springy floral prints turn darker and more opulent for fall. Think bouquets of burnt orange, caramel, toffee, burgundy, oxblood, brown, deep blues and rich purples.
The perfectly moody fall floral I’m wearing was actually once a dress that I scored on the clearance rack at Neiman Marcus Last Call for $25. I loved the top of the dress but not the bottom- it was way too short for me- so I had my tailor transform it into this oh-so-on-trend high neck blouse!
High Necklines. For Fall 2017 The Victorian Era reigned the runways. Loads of lace, ruffles, and high necklines cascaded down the catwalks of the most notable designers. Expect to see regal high necklines all season long. The good news about this trend is that its super chic, perfectly romantic and incredibly flattering.
Boxy Silhouettes are everything this season. Designers got Utilitarian with workwear-inspired boxy shapes in everything from denim to boiler suits, suiting, layering pieces and topcoats.
This beautiful boxy Longchamp jacket was my score of the summer. I was combing through the depths of the Nordstrom Rack Clearance section and stumbled upon it for $100!
But it gets even better. It was a clear the rack day so I got another 25% off the $100!
Yaas oh yaas.
Stylist Tip: Remember that trends are meant to mix and match. I used THREE trends to create this chic fall day look. You don’t have to go head to toe Victorian or over the top with boxy on top and bottom. Let the trends be fluid, use them to inspire you to create something new.

I’m quite petite and pale and not sure if I would be able to pull off he moody florals or boxy sillouette, but definitely like the high necklines. X

I fell in love with the shoes! Oh My Goodness

Thank you so much!
I love how you call them moody florals! And high neck lines are so great fall 🙂
I am all about the high necklines- especially as I get older lol
Honestly, I’m not feeling this season given what you’ve said! The clothes do look super cute on you-especially the jacket. But I don’t think they’ll work for me. Oh well, I”ve never really been “in style.”
There are so many ways that trends can be worn and so many to choose from- you just need a positive fashion outlook and a little creativity.
Love the colors you’ve mentioned
There are so many options this season!
Florals all year long – I’m all abut it 🙂 Also, love the shoes 😉
Florals are an instant pick-me-up!
