The biggest blow up is how tasteful lingerie has become rather classily sexy when worn right. Think of the early 1990s, you don’t have to be born in that decade to appreciate vintage styles reappearing on our backs. It is fashions way of saying I am an oldie but goodie and I happen to be making an appearance this season. 

When it comes to lingerie, which trends are worth paying close attention to and which ones are worth ignoring right now? As it turns out, I can help you narrow down the important holiday lingerie trends down to just four styles that are worth investing in, according to me an advocate chic insider.

Whether you are all for this look or not, think Madonna in the early 80s and 90s. You can’t deny how sexy this style can look and how surprisingly versatile as well. You can wear a bra as a top with a jacket or under a see-through blouse for a more tasteful approach.

More people are not just buying plain lingerie anymore. Pieces that have added extras, like lace, metallic, or crystals are definitely sought after for those oh so special occasions.

Slips as dresses

Think early 1995, when slip silky dresses were the perfect going out dress after work. Well now, slips are being worn as dresses and done in such a fun way. After work, those cocktails are flowing and the silky material adds some zest to your look.

5 Staple Pieces For Fall

As many designer’s place sustainability at the forefront of their practice, there’s been an overwhelming return of simplicity. While I’m not talking about a blackout on all things fanciful and decorative, What I have noticed is a return to some staples emerging across New York, London, Paris, and Milan. As the message of “buy less; buy better” gets repeated across the board.

The one thing I’m most excited to see is people’s take in the city of what simplistic staples mean in their closet. With fall being the most fun time of year, it is no wonder we are heading out with our winter coats and lattes in hand. Ready to take on fall? You bet we are and it is best to do it in the best style staples possible. Personally, I love fall. The cooler weather, the new styles arriving in stores, and of course the too cool for school attitude that echoes across the city.

Hardly a stranger to the catwalk, can ignore pieces that will be forever mounted in your mindful wardrobe in your head. That so chic piece that you just can’t take your eyes off as each model struts down the runway with ease. Designers are always trying to reinvent a classic. Or take on a new light but honestly, it is better when it can fit into your life and be functional while still maintaining style. 

If your like me, and your wanting to get more wear out of your wardrobe, the best place to start is my guide to the 5 Staple Pieces you need to look your best for fall. 

1.)       Faux Fur Coat

Doesn’t matter your personal style. A faux fur winter coat is not only a classic in itself, but it can really take your outfit from basic too hot in seconds. There is something glamour’s and mysterious about a fur coat that has our tongues wagging strong. 

2.)       Blazer

I feel a blazer is a classic staple for any season. But when it comes to fall and winter, you can throw this over a jumper and call it a day. Not only will you look sophisticated and sleek but you can get so much use from work day to night life. 

3.)       Puffer Jacket

You may not feel a big puffy jacket is feminine, but that is where you are wrong. When dressed right with the proper boots and jeans you can look like a French style editor in minutes. I love how casual this jacket can be, yet you can also look very dressy and beautiful. 

4.)       Shoulder Bag

A bag is the perfect accessory to really complete your whole look. Without the chicest bag than you end up looking incomplete. For this season, it just makes sense to feel put together and this does the job. 

5.)       Boots

You can always rock boots. With a skirt, dress, leggings, jeans. But when it comes to fall boots are the best way to keep your feet toasty warm while you have a good time in the style scene. 

Below are more staple pieces for fall you can shop.

Give The Gift Of Romance: With Pearl Necklaces & Infinity Jewellery

You’ve probably said it before, too. “I’m not a fan of certain trends here.” It is an easy explanation for not being totally on board, and that is typically an excuse for any kind of jewellery that I am just not head over heels over. In this case, I am making an exception when it comes to romance. Pearl necklaces are absolutely breath-taking. The simplicity and elegance is what draws us in and makes us fall passionately. 
Simple Pearl Necklace

This is also the case when it comes to infinity jewellery that makes you just feel oh so complete. Something that is worth its weight in gold, silver, and anything that sparkles. 

Icons like Grace Kelly have their stamp of approval with beautiful, classic proper taste. But when it comes to today’s fashion, things have truly changed. And thanks to what I have been spotting on social media, and across New York City Fashion Week, I find myself obsessed with these hot and spicy accessories. Let me explain exactly why these pieces are unique. 
Simple Pearl Necklace

Specifically, I’m referring to a huge up rise in the popularity of baroque styles-a more unusual shape that feels modern and timeless at the same time. The range and approach is very cool and what makes this even more bold, is the attention to influencing culture within the shapes and glamour.
Infinity Heart Ring

When it comes to special occasions, like weddings, anniversaries, or just one of those days where you want to buy yourself something special. The gift of romance through a gleaming pearl necklace is the ideal choice. It not only goes with everything. But you can wear it casually and dress it up for a polished appearance. I love how well made these accessories are and how I can picture any woman with one. The diversity of these items is what makes it truly one of a kind.

Below are some examples of how amazing this jewellery is and how you can also feel classy and elegant. 

What do you think of this range of jewellery? And what pieces would you wear this season?

Transitioning From Summer To Fall: With The Little Denim Jacket

Do you have that itch to go fall shopping yet? With the temperatures fluctuating it is only a matter of time before we bust out or must have coat, boots, or even or black tights we just can’t get enough of. But when it comes to it being near the end of summer, there are changing trends we are loving lately. Instead of going out and buying a new winter garment. Why not take a summer staple you already might own and rock it for fall?

There is one closet staple that I wouldn’t call a trend but more like an evergreen piece that has proven to be a forever fashion find: a denim jacket. That should actually come as no surprise considering the timeless, enduring nature of denim in general. Sure, certain jean cuts might be more one season and fade the next, but overall, jean jackets are a wardrobe classic.

Take it back to the 80’s and 90’s we remember seeing the famous Levis and their amazing rick, structured, and incredible good quality denim. It was something everyone wanted to own. And most people spent their good money on this luxury. Fast forward to today, and the quality of some denim isn’t what we were born to love. It is really why some people have decided to go thrift shopping for some of those classic denim pieces. And that can actually be a lot of fun. But a classic jean jacket really makes a statement. Whether you bought it vintage or totally brand new for your best outfit looks.

Every so often, though, you might feel like you’ve outworn said fashion piece, and that’s when I come into play.

This time around I found some denim jacket inspirations that you can not only wear all year round, whether you live in New York, LA, Europe, U.K, you can transition this jacket into your fall wardrobe right now.
