Fashion Friday: Fall-Winter 2014 Trends I Can Pull Off

Hello!

For the last week its felt A LOT like fall here in Toronto.  I’m not happy or ready for it to be fall but since it feels like fall, why not plan for fall?  And today I’m talking fall fashion.  I’m not particularly fashion forward and I don’t buy into every trend that comes around but there are a few every season that fit with my style and I feel like I can get on side with.  Over the last few months the fall fashion trends have been circulating and I’ve discovered a few fall/winter trends that I’m liking and that I could pull off.  Despite not feeling ready to wear them quite yet…..

 

STRAP HAPPY SHOES

Shoe trends are the most common for me to latch onto because they are an accessory. Easy way to add a little sumpin’ sumpin’  to any outfit without worrying about whether it suits my body type.  Plus my shoes size doesn’t change and my body size often does.  And I love a little extra interest on a shoe, like the ankle strapped ones that are trending for fall.

THE MIDI DRESS

This trend can be a tricky one.  This isn’t a dress length you can pull off with short legs. Even if you are above average in height like me (5’8′ ish) you still need to rock heels with this kind of dress to not have it make you look shorter.  But with the right cut it is a very chic way to pull of a sexy yet conservative look.

SHEARLING

OK fine, this may be pushing it for early fall but in late November this is one trend I’m liking.  Warm, cozy and cute.  Am I ready to wear it now?  Hells no. But when the time comes, it’s hard to go wrong with this trend.

I’m sure a few more trends will come around that I might want to try out as well get closer to fall….but this is a good start.  You can see some of my other outfit ideas on my Polyvore.
