A classic accessory that’s making a total comeback, pearls are being featured in a big way for the upcoming fall season. However, they’re no longer the ones you once wore while channeling Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Teamed with rhinestones and studs on sandals, jeans, jackets and more, pearls have become the embellishment of choice for pretty much everything.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you might remember my post last summer (the first-ever post on Sartorially OC!) about the season’s pineapple trend. Well, to no one’s surprise, the ‘food as fashion’ trend is back this year, but with a twist. Citrus has been taking over the style scene with lemons (thank you, Beyoncé) owning the spotlight as the summer’s fruit of choice.
I’m not usually one to wear vibrant colors and prints, but when the weather starts warming up, I can’t help but gravitate towards the tropical pattern play that’s hanging in every store window. There’s just something about a summer floral that puts a smile on my face and makes me feel like I’m on vacation, even if I’m stuck in front of the computer at work.
If you’ve been following my blog, you know that I obviously love a good jeans-and-tee outfit—I practically live in them. However, separates can sometimes make getting dressed a little more complicated than it really needs to be (who feels me?!). Enter: matching two-piece sets. This trend has been on the scene for a while now, and I’m so glad it’s still around. It’s the perfect style compromise: the ease of a dress meets the comfort of separates. No more figuring out what to pair with what, it’s all done for you.
