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.
Timeless, iconic, always on trend—no I’m not talking about my personal style (wink, wink), I’m talking about stripes. Whether they’re vertical or horizontal, wide or narrow, stripes instantly transform any piece into a wardrobe classic. Though they’re obviously appropriate for any time of year, I especially love wearing stripes in the summer months when the nautical trend is having its time in the spotlight.
From bell and balloon to ruffled and tied, sleeves have taken a new shape this season, turning our once basic button-downs and off-the-shoulder tops into true statement pieces. I was a little wary of this trend at first, thinking it could totally throw off my petite figure—but boy was I wrong. Once I tried it, I instantly knew why so many fashion it-girls were backing it—it’s the perfect way to add some personality to your everyday looks without going too over the top (pun intended).
