...it's Fall 2015: Fall Trends a la Saks

One of our barometers of fall seasonal trends, the Key to the Cure Fashion Show, is a fun and fashionable event that gets the creative juices going.  Saks Fifth Avenue partnered with the Friends of Dana-Farber to present the annual, nationwide "Key to the Cure" initiative to fight women's cancers.  In October this fall, we munched canapes and sipped champs while Saks' top stylists put together some covetable looks.

Jen and I always leave inspired with ideas for a new piece or two and pairings to bring new life to things already hanging in our closets. There are V-E-R-Y aspirational looks that I like to translate to my lifestyle and wardrobe.

I’ve been on the hunt for a WOW vest this season and this lovely by Nellie Partow fits the bill.  A vest is such a versatile piece that can be a warm enough layer for early fall and then layered under a wool coat as the temperature drops.  Put a vest over a column of black, wear with jeans, boots and a turtleneck or silk blouse for a casual look.  I like a vest over a long dress and boots.  The bell sleeved sweater pumps up the drama.   Said vest may or may not have come home with me.

Try this faux version from Velvet by Graham and Spencer over, well, just about any outfit and you’ll feel like a million dollars.

Ok this vest from Ellie Tahari is brilliant!  The bottom zips off for two completely different looks.  We all rushed over to try it on after the show and gave it a big thumbs up for versatility.

Colored outerwear brings a much needed pop of color to the winter uniform, while the fur collar and lace blouse add textural interest.

The J.Crew Stadium-cloth cocoon coat is available in a rainbow of colors so I can find one that works with my style.

Worn together, this whimsical wildcat top and tiger scarf from Stella McCartney were pretty awesome.  Animal prints are still as hot as ever.  Why?  Because the pattern is so wearable and fun colors like this blue, transcend a basic black uniform.

For a slightly less expensive version of the scarf, I’d go to this one from Echo.

Next up…more fur, more layers and a little flounce. If I had to shop exclusively with Brunello Cucinelli, I would be a content and well-dressed woman.  Witness, this stunning fur hood sweater and layered pencil skirt with flounce.   Pretty freaking awesome.  Perfectly layerable and chic.  If you can find a cheap and cheerful version, please email me.

Ruffles, flounces and pussy bow neck ties are back from the 70s this season.  I have to say I do love the flounce when paired with some structure like this double breasted blazer in a textured wool.

Take the sweet out of this Kate Spade dress with an edgy bootie and leather jacket.  Bam!

That's the round-up!  It's still a mild fall, and you have plenty of time to put these looks to work for you! ~ LB
