Best of Fall Party, Thursday, October 23

Kristen | @styledbyblake

What can we expect to see shared to the Host Picks Showroom? I will be sharing some of my favorite trends at a variety of price points. As a freelance Fashion Stylist, my trademark is “Style is not a Luxury.” By showing the must-haves of fall at all price points, it shows that everyone can incorporate the new trends into their wardrobe – from colors, to textures, prints and classics.

What are your favorite fall pieces and trends? I am loving that Bordeaux and variations of wine colors are front and center from jackets to jeans, shoes, bags and other accessories. The feminine touches to the menswear look are beautiful and sure to become classics, from the baseball shirt and letterman’s jackets coming back within casual wear and being able to be worn day to night. This season, however, hands down my favorite trend for FW14 is sequins! Sequins, sequins and more sequins! Now I have heard the resistance from women of all ages and it is the same concern. Aren’t I to old to wear that? Everyone can add just a bit of sparkle to their wardrobe and let their style shine!

Give us a sneak peek of what you’ll be sharing!

  1. Gold Sequin Clutch
  2. J. Crew Sequin Mini Skirt
  3. Royal Bordeaux Blazer
  4. Rachel Roy Draped Blazer
