Fashion week has kicked off in London in all its glory.  Summer is certainly on hold and Fall fashion has city life looking pretty exciting.  It is not all black and white.  Patterns and textures are at play.  Stripes, checks, plaids, and colors are working together in the most unexpected ways.  Personal style is on display.  Check out my recent NYFW street style post for more inspiration.

Adam Lippes' Black T
A black tee is a basic.
The Range
These high-waisted full trouser from The Range are the perfect alternative to denim.  Military green all the way!
Joseph
Joseph’s light weight cashmere in a neutral tone is perfect for those days you can’t decide what to wear
Theory's Slip Dress
Slip dresses are one of those pieces that is more interesting when layered.  Black tee or Joseph’s cashmere long sleeve would be perfect
Common Projects
Common Project sneakers paired with absolutely anything works!!
Phillip Lim's Cardigan
A creamy cardigan is a no brainer. To be worn with any bottom or layered over a dress.  Go a size bigger for an oversized look

Sometimes a little style inspiration is needed to embrace a season change.  It is hard to ignore the inbox that is filling with tag lines of Fall Fashion.  I peeked to see what I could find on Net-A-Porter for a few versatile pieces that could make slipping into Fall a bit more fun.  Keeping it simple for those in between days is the key to easy dressing.  All pieces from Net-A-Porter.

 

Fall Attitude Influenced By A Mens Classic Shoe

Currently contemplating swapping out the sneakers for a mens inspired classic shoe.  Wear them with jeans to dresses.  An edgy alternative to complement a feminine look.  Time to change it up and put your own stamp on your personal style.  This is a look that may not be for everyone but isostilo is digging the masculine touch.  Loafers, brogues, or oxfords is the question.

You can find more choices on Farfetch

All pics from Nili Lotan

Nili Lotan nails that tomboy edge while maintaining a clean and minimalist style.  A look that catches my eye.  Rock n roll, city life, and a certain sexiness is delivered each season.  One must just be confident to rock it.  It is all personal style.  Having some edge and grit to your look is a good thing.  Give me those loose-fitting cognac lambskin pants any day of the week.  Absolutely killer!  Nili Lotan is not known for the most approachable prices.  This season each one of these pieces are ridiculous.  But the fashion inspiration is fully appreciated!  Take the shapes, lines, textures, style, effortless appeal, and run with it.  Find your happy edge.

Oh Céline!

Celine Ankle Boot Fall

Celine Big Bucket Fall

Celine Ballerina Fall

Celine 5 Pockets FALL18

Hard to think about the Fall, but Céline Fall 18 has me weak at the knees.  The oversized trousers and sweaters, the wide-ass-belt, and the leather dress speak to me on every level.  The Neutral tones are classic and reflects a clean design.  The pop of hot pink is sexy.  I am a super fan of the oversized trouser that goes straight to the floor.  Just walk on clouds from location to location to not dirty them (but maybe a little dirt would give them more grit).  Swing the bucket bag all day long and right into evening.  The ankle booties are ridiculous!  Not wishing summer away but always fun to see what is in store.  It is all in the details and need a few more 0s in my bank account:)
