A few weeks ago I had the luxury of sitting down for a brunch with the team at Saks Fifth Avenue Beachwood Place for a little Fall preview brunch. I brought my mom, one of my favorite shopping partners, and we sat back to take in all the glam that we’re going to see this season and into Winter months!
Overall trends of what we’re seeing? Lots of texture: suede, fur, layered leathers, and tweed – a constant staple for that fall/back to school look.
Living somewhere as chilly as Cleveland means lots of boots. While winter can really get me in the dumps, I think cold weather fashion is my favorite. I love the layering and the effortlessly cool look of boots that are slightly masculine (Chanel is really feeling that combat boot this season).
On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, school girl chic is so adorable to me. Back-to-school tweeds and blazers and button ups are just so functional, it will never not be in style. Chanel’s tweed Mary Jane is perfectly classic but combines this unreal dense opaque heel that is to die for.
Last but not least – handbags. The easiest way to add some personality to any outfit. Here’s where we’re seeing lots of layers and colors for leathers, plus big chunky hardware. The 90′s are back. A quick sidebar: After chatting with the team at Saks, it’s clear certain handbags are worth the investment – they’ve seen the prices of Chanel, Gucci, and LV skyrocket. So, if you can make the purchase now, chances are it will be worth it down the road.
Thanks again to the ladies at Saks for a great Sunday!
