Mad For Plaid- The Fall Edit

Happy Fall! #TGIF It’s the weekend! 

It seems we are finally experiencing some fall weather here in NYC! Fall is one of my favorite seasons and also just a really fun time to get dressed! I love it when the weather cools down a bit and it feels like the time to throw on some layers & an amazing jacket….So…..with that in mind it seems like the right time to think about this coming fall season & what my new Fall Favorites will be. Right now I’m loving bright Red paired with Black & Grey neutrals. Also loving bold plaids and leather looks too….

Here are some of things on my fall wish list. It’s always fun to add a few great new pieces each season that can be mixed & matched together with the classic items that are already  in your closet.

The Look # 9- Grunge Meets Glam

The fall season is upon us & I’m looking forward to cooler temperatures. I’m loving a lot of the fall 2016 fashion trends, but I’m especially excited about the 90’s trend that’s been emerging lately. One of my favorite time periods in fashion history is the early 90’s when Anna Sui had her first runway show, Marc Jacobs creating his “Grunge” collection for Perry Ellis and a young Kate Moss burst onto the scene.

I loved Kate Moss’s effortless personal style & feminine but rock and roll spirit.  I also loved the rich colors, fabrics, prints & jewelry of the early 90’s that are just as inspirational today as they were back then.

I’m so looking forward to wearing animal prints, velvet, plaid & washed out denim this fall. Also love the look of dreamy flowing chiffon print dresses & tops with motorcycle boots.

Here’s some outfit inspiration for a 90’s inspired look for this Fall season…………..

The Inspiration #1: The Lady Is A Punk

It still feels like summer here in San Francisco. 

The days are warm & sunny which I love, but since I grew up on the east coast in New York City, by the time it’s September or October, I’m always feeling in the mood for true fall & all the cool clothes that go with it.

I’m loving the “Posh Punk” look that’s currently in all the stores and magazines. I’ve always loved a little contrast and a look that combines vintage-modern romance with a bit of a rock ‘n roll edge.

So, it’s kind of perfect that my first style inspiration post for Rock Paper Sequins is a look that I’ve been pretty much rocking since high school.

Look #1– Get inspired……“The Lady Is A Punk”
