October 1, 2012 in Glam: Style & Trends
It feels like Autumn has pounced on our closets demanding cozy sweaters and boots faster than you can spit out your pumpkin-spiced latte and fanatically blurt the word, “WHERE?!” when your best friend tells you that your favorite designer is having a sample sale. And with the turn of the season, every morning seems to be a bit more challenging as I struggle trying to debate whether I need that extra layer… maybe a cardigan if I get a chill? Or, simply a scarf if it warms up later in the afternoon.
Don’t get me wrong, I love fall. Suddenly, I have an excuse to consume every possible pumpkin-flavored drink and treat on the menu. Chocolate and candy have TWO aisles in the supermarket. Most important and dear to my heart, I secretly DO love layering. Although I really despise the cold and the omniscient premonition of big, puffy parkas covering our outfits, fall brings change and the chance for new beginnings and styles…
Have you been following the printed pant trend? Well, it’s been following you; from last spring seen in flirty skirts and maxis, then to this past summer in cut-offs and shorts, and now to this fall in bold, colored pants. It’s time to venture to make the change! This edgy and bohemian pair designed by Nicole Miller are perfect from everyday errands, to work, then even to cocktails. Comfortable and fun, printed pants change your question from “Hmm, I need a cute top for tonight…” to, “Which bottoms should I wear with my black tank?”, opening up the possibilities for what you originally thought was a limited closet.

Not quite ready to stray from your denim? Try printed denim! I love the new floral jeans at American Eagle. But remember, make the change and wear it proudly because as fast as it has arrived, Autumn Leaves pretty soon! ;)
