Fall 2013 Style Essentials: Plaid & Leather

The return of Fall….Spice pumpkin lattes, changing leaves, apple crisps & F A L L  Style Essentials. Trending this season are updated versions of classic Plaid & leather pieces along with POPS of vibrant color.


Elizabeth Rouprich, Style Expert & CEO of Visually Appealing, delights SAVVY in a quick Q & A on  what’s trending this FALL :

LH: You mentioned plaids were coming back this Fall. If I want to add a small touch of plaid, what piece{s} do you suggest?

Elizabeth: For you, I’d add either a plaid jacket or plaid pants/skirt. I wouldn’t wear both together b/c you’re petite and it would be overpowering. Pairing plaid with leather, studs, rhinestones gives it an edgier look. Or if you’re more traditional, just add a solid with the plaid item.

LH:  I’m looking for an affordable, age appropriate Faux leather skirt. I tried one on at Forever 21 but it was too short {I did  find a great one at H & M  though}. What do you suggest?

Elizabeth: I love CAbi’s new fall line. Cabi calls their faux leather-fleather- and their skirt is fabulous! It has pockets and hits me right above the knee. Michael Kors/Belk also has a leather/knit combo skirt. The leather is on the side w/ the knit down the center. This will be a flattering  skirt.

LH: Which clothing lines are you drawn to & reasonably priced?

Elizabeth: I rarely wear a line head to toe but I do love CAbi, White House Black Market and Vince Camuto for those on a budget and want to look stylish. Not on a budget-Mary Katrantzou & Gucci this fall.

LH: What are 3 big Fall trends your noticing this year?

Elizabeth: Here’s 4 counting the “Must Have” colors:
-Colors: Blues, Greens, Teals, also the Black/White trend from S/S is carrying into F/W.
-Embellishments on EVERYTHING
Plaid, Tweeds, Checks/Houndstooth. For the edgier dressers plaid is mixed with leather, studs, rhinestones for the rocker chic look, as mentioned above. For more conservative, mix w/ solids and the look can go more business/professional
-Animal Print, Fur, Fringe & Feathers-not all worn at the same time, but independently:).
