Fall Forecast: Foxy & Feline

I’m a cheerleader for confidence and individual style, so silly “no white after Labor Day” rules bore me to tears. Speaking of Labor Day (le boo hoo hoo) where did those summer nights go?

Each year when summer sizzles away and fall flutters in, I have images of tweed, tights, turtlenecks and tall boots dancing in my head. Something about the clear & cool autumn air demands a wardrobe just as crisp ~ and conjures up images of style icons at their fall finest…

Audrey, in all of her leopard and scarlet glory.

Jetset style at Heathrow ~ chocolate suede coat by Givenchy, brown suede boots by Charles Jourdan, Louis Vuitton bag.

 Mademoiselle Deneuve ~ haute headscarf & coat ~ check & check.

White satin collar over black & classic bun ~ yes & yes.

YSL Muse ~ wool funnel neck shift, patterned tights, metallic flats.

Grace ~ pristine in green, one of Fall 2012′s hot hues.

Natalie ~ lovely in leopard. Love her studded cuff bracelet.

 Twiggy ~ satin creme collar over black with fab (faux) fur.

Jackie ~ the classic black ribbed turtleneck never looked so chic.

Pea coat, signature shades & scarf.

Ladylike in leopard.

Love Marianne Faithfull’s boho-chic style ~ crushed velvet & lace minidress, suede boots, crochet Peter Pan collar.

Très glam threesome! Ali MacGraw, Dyan Cannon and Natalie Wood rocking va-va-voom velvet, knit and brocade.

So many elements of the styles above are popping their pretty heads up again this season and they’re all yours for the flaunting ~ leather, lace, leopard, tweed, velvet, peplums and Peter Pan collars, to name a few. Also keep an eye out for a twist on animal print ~ with prrr-worthy accents like foxy little foxes & feline-faced kittycats.

I’m all about the fashion mashup ~ mix a little bit of this with a little bit of that to put a personal stamp on your style. Even as a little girl I loved to mix it up when I played dress-up. Cookie cutter copycats are très cliché so rock your own unique look, kittens!
