TREND: Fancy Pants

Now that it is officially autumn, I’d really love to start wearing all the new fall gear I’ve purchased. Unfortunately, with temperatures still soaring into the 90’s, I don’t see that happening any time soon. So, what’s a girl to do when she’s got a stack of new clothes and nowhere to wear them? Taking inspiration from those around you is a good place to start. It may have been 85 degrees outside, but this Fashionista still found a way to play with fall fashion. The addition of a light scarf helped to keep this outfit from being “so last season”. If you look closely, you'll notice the zebra print of the scarf—animal prints are a great way to accessorize for fall.

Another subtle nod to Fall 2010 is this Fashionista’s silk/satin trouser shorts. While shorts may not be suitable for a changing climate, silk and satin always have their place. This fabric was seen on the fall catwalks of designers such as Christian Siriano and made an even bigger splash during the Spring 2011 shows. My advice? Keep these shorts around for next spring too!

One more thing, this Fashionista’s bow flats are great for the overall ladylike look she is trying to convey. There is a touch of femininity to nearly every piece of her ensemble—she even curled her hair!

Hint: What to give satin pants a try? MARC by Marc Jacobs is a great place to start. Their loose fit cropped version mirrors this season’s hottest silhouette.
