There are so many trends for fall this year I was not able to include everything in my September newsletter. However, that’s not all bad because it gives me a chance to focus on the military side of things for October. I am calling this blast Marching Orders and showcasing everything from Military to Nautical to Band Jackets. They all involve marching and have taken the Fall 2016 runways by storm.
I like to show the wearable and affordable versions of the extreme fashion styles, and most pieces can be dressed up or down to fit your lifestyle. However, if I show something that is outrageously expensive, know that you can always find a copy but it was too good not to show! Sometimes just adding one key piece to your existing wardrobe can bring you up to speed and make you feel “in the know” and “on trend.” Shop my picks below!
