I have been in a fashion slump this summer, but I feel myself slowing coming out of it. One of my favorite parts or working full time was getting dressed in the morning. I enjoyed playing with my clothes and coming up with different combinations-some winners, some not!
Since I don’t have a 9-5 job anymore, my wardrobe needs have changed. I am still trying to develop a busy-grandma-on-the go wardrobe, so that I don’t fall into the habit of wearing my yoga pants everywhere I go. (Although, as a Holy Yoga teacher, I LOVE yoga pants!)
According to my extensive research (NOT), here are some trends for this fashion season:
|I really like this polyvore set by My 4 Boys. I like lots of the outfits she puts together.|
1. Great Outerwear
I don’t need a new coat, but I do plan to wear the coats I do have on a more equal basis. I tend to grab the same one over and over.
Hats and I just do not get along. I look like a total dork in one.
3. Classic prints: Think menswear plaid, houndstooth
I love classic prints, and I actually have a pencil skirt in a large houndstooth check way back in the depths of my closet that is too big. Maybe I will spend a little money to have it altered. I really should.
4. Leopard prints are still huge
I am good in this department. I have a leopard print scarf that literally goes with everything, and I also bought the cutest little leopard cardigan this summer that was reduced, reduced, reduced from last winter.
5. Emerald Green
I am going to look for a dress in this color, I think.
Lots of girls at She Speak were rocking leggings and cute tunics this summer. I thought leggings were kaput, but maybe they aren’t. I have been noticing skinny ponte knit pants that look pretty cute and could take the place of leggings. I might try to look for some at Chicos. Have any of you bought their hold-in-your tummy pants?
7. Winter White
I intend to wear my white jeans all winter long.
I found a cute little peplum top at TJ Maxx dirt cheap earlier this summer. I haven’t really worn it all that much because it is sleeveless and it was too hot most of the time to wear a cardigan. Maybe I can “fall it up” with my jean jacket and boots.
9. Leather this and that
Nothing new on the horizon here.
10. Military inspired looks
I would really like a pair of very subtle camo jeans even though my sister said it might be pushing it at my age. Hummph.
I also may break down and buy the J Crew factory military jacket in the picture above, if I can find my size at some kind of reduced price.
11. Black shoes
12. Tall boots
I have one pair, but I would like another pair that is tighter around the angle. The ones I have look great with tights and a skirt or dress, but……
14. Something quilted
Not sure if I will jump into this trend or not.
