As you may have noticed, I’ve been doing a bit of fashion posts lately. I’ve always loved clothes – what gal doesn’t? One of my favorite places to shop has always been Macy’s Department Stores, even way back when they were Burdines! Yes, I am totally dating myself here! I was recently hired to attend the Macy’s Five Fall Fashion Essentials event held at my local Macy’s in Dadeland Mall on behalf of Be Everywhere and it was such fun!
Now, here’s the thing about me: I don’t do “High Fashion.” As you might have noticed from my recent posts, I kind of have my own style. I pretty much wear whatever I want to, regardless of what the trends are. With that being said, I do enjoy learning about what’s in style because it’s fun and quite often, I find that I like something that’s trendy and am able to work it into my wardrobe quite easily!
The 5 Fall Fashion Essentials by Macy’s
I had to laugh a bit at this – Leather is one of the most important pieces of the fall trends! I happen to love leather but with our hot and humid weather in Miami, you can’t really get away with wearing it very often. Vince Camuto has design a line for Macy’s where the leather is actually quite thin, which is perfect for Miami “winters.” I use that term very loosely!
We saw everything from leather pants, leather skirts and vests to leather shoes, accents and handbags. Vince Camuto was kind of genius is how he worked leather accents into his line!
Black & Gold
Black and Gold is the new Black and White, y’all! Weather it’s a trendy gold statement necklace, a gold handbag, or gold accents on your black clothing, gold is THE color to work into your fall wardrobe!
I have a thing for punk rock, so I was pretty excited to learn that zipper details are on trend this fall!
Vests are totally in style right now! Think leather vests, vests with leather and zipper details – the sky is the limit! Vests are also a great way for Miami Fashionistas to work a little leather into their wardrobe without overheating themselves. I love how put together you look with a nice vest on – it adds an entirely new dimension to your wardrobe!
I’m a child of the 90’s. I wore the grunge style: the sweaters, the combat boots and the flannel. In all honesty, I miss it!
Well, the 90’s are officially back in fashion this fall, but in a totally modern way! Instead of baggy, saggy sweaters, think tailored hoodies. Instead of worn-out flannel shirts with ripped jeans, think sleek plaid tops with skinny jeans.
And the boots? They’re back in style, but let’s trade out those chunky Doc Martens for cutout booties and knee high suede!
The Vince Camuto line at Macy’s embraces all of the fall fashion trends, with different lines for casual and office-appropriate attire. Go check the line out at Macys.com!
