Pre-fall looks are getting me super excited for a few purchases next year. In fact, Moda Operandi recently opened up their Rag & Bone Pre-fall trunk show, so you can order your items now and expect them anywhere between March and July. Gotta love that! Another great aspect to Pre-fall perusing can involved gathering inspiration for your looks today! For example, leather bomber jackets, tops, skirts, pants and vests have been seen everywhere from Jenni Kayne to DKNY. Invest in a leather piece now and where it for each and every season to come in the next year...and most likely longer!
Military inspired color palette (think olives, burnt oranges and tweedy grays)
Textured knits against floaty silks
Casual ladylike style
Full skirts with emphasis on the waist (holla for the pear-shaped ladies!)
Wooly jackets and sweaters
Embrace your pale side with a peachy, ivory and dove gray palette and maybe just a pop of neon
Leather bombers as a staple
Primary colors against ivory and black
Effortless tough-girl luxe
Do you covet any of these items? I am seriously contemplating ordering this last Rag & Bone leather bib dress from Moda Operandi. It seems like an item I could wear year round (especially good for the South since a full on leather ensemble could send me into sweat lodge-style faints). Could someone else please get me that blue and white Thakoon sweater or the entire second look from Thakoon Addition? Like I said, since you can't have any of these now, it's a great time to draw a little inspiration. Anybody got any yarn?
