Gorgeous Andy Torres, a model native to Mexico and local to Amsterdam, rocks some amazing looks. She has this effortless way of making any ensemble look casual enough to wear during ones day to day life, but edgy enough to be the envy of ladies everywhere. I came across her blog when I was a freshman in college and I've been glued to it ever since. She is a major inspiration to me and my personal style. Today I'm going to talk about a couple of her looks that I want to incorporate into my fall wardrobe! After reading this, I'm sure you will too...
Vixen Velvet & Posh Plaid.
Posh Plaid: I'm sure most of you know that plaid is a huge trend for fall, but many people don't consider wearing it in any other way than a top. While flannel is fun, why not be a little more adventurous? You'll never know how you look if you don't take risks! Pants, skirts, blazers, you name it and I'm game to try it. Don't stick with the usual red and black, either. Try out greens, navy blues and purples! Plaid is the ultimate do for autumn.
Vixen Velvet: When I was a little kid my mom would always dress me in velvet during the fall and winter. I can remember sitting in church in velvet dresses while singing Christmas songs, and now the trend is back! One thing that I love about wearing velvet is how sleek you look without even trying. With its visual dimension, it's pretty much its own print.
Please-Do Pastels: Some people are shocked that pastels are popular for autumn. The typical fall and winter look calls for darker hues, so pale colors popping up on the streets and runways seems backwards. Think again! I believe the best way to wear pastels this season is to combine them with your usual wardrobe routine. Add some warmer details with pale purple or muted pink. I've always loved pastel makeup looks for winter, and now I can incorporate this trend into my ensembles!
Leopard Love & Stylish Sweatshirts.
Leopard Love: This trend has been hot for a very long time now and I'm still not tired of it. Shoes, bags, pants, jackets, sweaters, scarves... anything you can imagine can be worn in leopard print. It's the best neutral there is! Mix it into pretty much any ensemble and you've crossed over to the wild side.
Stylish Sweatshirt: This is one of my favorite fall trends! I absolutely love the idea of a stylish sweatshirt. There's nothing better than a cozy crew-neck, and now they are a must-have in every closet. You can wear them with billowy maxi dresses, straight leg jeans, sexy leather skirts, or distressed denim. There is seriously no reason not to buy one.
The Perfect Coat.
The Perfect Coat: This item pretty much speaks for itself. I mean, who doesn't love a great coat when the weather is crisp and cool? I always find it a little challenging since I am so petite, but you can bet I'm going to hunt until I discover the perfect one! My favorite style is a trench coat. Whether it's Burberry or H&M, a trench coat for autumn is absolutely flawless.
Which trend do you think you might try? Which one is your favorite? I'd love to hear!
