She's giving me major Beatles-era vibes, no? London street style before it was a thing.

While I'm not an avid tv watcher, I wouldn't miss a red carpet no matter
what the occasion. While most of the shows nominated were foreign to me, I definitely had favorites in the fashion department. Let's face it, that's what the red carpet is all about, right?
What were the major trends? Ruby reds, grassy greens, andother deep-hued jewel tones. Metallic is a must for fall (I see a metallic tank peeking out from under a great jacket, a sleek metallic slip dress, or a standout metallic jacket as the ways to execute this trend for fall). But, there were celebs rocking full on metallic gowns that had me searching the web for a touch of heavy metal (hello Padma Lakshmi).
The dress that initially caught my eye was the emerald green
sequined Prada worn by Sarah Paulson. To. Die. For. This one is truly a work of art. What was even more striking about it was the way it moved. When she took the stage to claim her award, I was awestruck watching the beads and sequins glimmer as she made her speech.
Others that stuck out were Priyanka Chopra in this stunning red
gown (I'm having flashbacks to Lupita in the pale blue) and Jerry
Seinfeld's wife, Jessica, in a simple and understated (yet so perfect) white
One of my favorite trends last night was the pop of yellow (as seen on
that was popping up on the street style stars during NYFW, so I think
we should take note and consider adding a bit of buttercup to our fall shopping lists.
But who was the belle of the ball? None other than Kristen Bell in Zuhair Murad. I'm not usually a fan of the princess ball gown look, but this was such a breath of fresh air. She looked stunning head to toe (did anyone else save a pic of her hair for future reference? Give me the Kristen Bell hair, please). It was a standout dress, but she made it look so easy (that's always the goal, isn't it?). Loved. It.

If there's a bag trend I'm a fan of, it's the small but structured cross body.
It's literal fashion meets function at it's finest. It forces you to declutter,
think through what you're carrying and only pack the essentials (something
I struggle with when larger totes are the bags of the season). I've got my eye
this new shape from J.Crew but I can't figure out if I'm wanting something
square or rounded. What are some of your favorites?

One thing that will give you major 60's and 70's vibes is the reemergence

You saw the first taste of slides yesterday, but I'm telling you, every top blogger
and tastemaker is wearing them (specifically this Gucci version). They might not be for everyone, but they're certainly making waves in the fashion world. If you just can't even, you're in luck. Sneakers are single-handedly one of the biggest trends for fall and I couldn't be happier. Your feet will thank you! My collection continues to grow as I'm fully endorsing this one. Comfort meets fashion, I'm such a fan! Here's the great news: these are being shown on spring runways with short, flirty dresses. They're not going anywhere, so you can feel good about investing in a few options. Go ahead and pick up a new berry lip color while you're out shopping.
If I could go on and on about what's big for Fall, wide-leg pants would
certainly be on the list. They're even bigger for Spring, so it's another
investment to feel great about! Can we talk about comfort? Yes, please.

Yesterday we covered the must-have jacket (the bomber jacket). Today, we're dissecting denim. There have been movements away from the tight, constricting skinny jeans to more relaxed silhouettes with an increased focus on distressing. This season, it's all about a cropped flare. Yes, you're reading that correctly, a cropped flare. Think Carolyn Bessette Kennedy in the 90s, Jackie O in the 70s. When paired with a slim bodysuit and flat slides, you've nailed the 90s vibe.
She's wearing the jeans everyone is talking about with the shoes all the bloggers
and tastemakers are raving about (more on those tomorrow) and the trend
everyone isn't quite sure about (the bodysuit). Here's the good news: they are sticking around for spring, so you're guaranteed another season of wear out of them.

With each new season comes a new batch of trends, a new set of "it" girls, and new must-haves that all the bloggers will be wearing during NYFW. With the September issues already on newsstands, it's time to break down the trends. We've combed through loads of social media feeds and lengthy lists of trends to narrow it down to 5 absolute must-haves. When worn in combination, the trends for Fall will give you a major case of nostalgia. It has major 90s vibes with a touch of 70s. One of my favorite updates for the new season is a fresh jacket in the form of a bomber jacket. You can't go wrong. Dress it down with a pair of jeans and your favorite tee, tie it around your waist for major cool points or drape it over your shoulders. There are a plethora of options available at all price points, so if you're hesitant about diving in head first, try places like Forever 21, Topshop, Urban Outfitters and Zara for this one.
When paired with flatform brogues, you're sure to be the chicest on the street!

So, Carolina was everything I had hoped it would be and more! The collection was flowy and beautiful while still managing to look effortless. See the full collection here (this look was everything). While my photos turned out less than mediocre, see below....
