The current temps may say 90 degrees. But in the world of fashion, Fall 2016 is on full display. On a current stop at Neiman Marcus-Somerset Collection 2705 West Big Beaver Troy, MI I saw plenty of color, sparkle and a wide variety of, 'wear what makes you feel good" attire. Denim is not going anywhere, skirts, jeans, or shirts are here to stay. However, make an entrance with the Alexander McQueen jewel encrusted denim duster. Beautiful bead work accentuates the duster from the neck to the waist.
The styles show layering, whether it be with a jacket, a shrug or a kimono. Layering adds a depth to your outfit without making it or you feel cluttered. The only thing to be cautious of when layering is choosing the right fabric/material to accentuate your outfit.
Carrying over from spring/summer the Boho look is big for fall. Baby doll dresses with ankle booties. Lace pieces which pair great with a kimono. Suede is also making a resurgence in attire. Suede while lovely is not the most warm weather friendly material. But wear a suede skirt or jacket on a crisp fall day and it really stands out.
The color black is never out of season. Black goes with everything at all times no matter the weather. The Alexander McQueen wide leg tuxedo featured above is outstanding. Wear that for an evening at the theater or be bold and wear it for New Year's Eve.
The pieces that designer Marc Jacobs has featured above are paired with accents of red and lace. Either of these outfits can go where-ever you want them too. This season the hell with convention of the "fashion rules" wear what you like.
Jewel tones and suede and FLATS. I love that alot of the designers are still embracing wears flats or low heels for the Fall. The Prada suede loafer in the classic burgandy and black colors has about a 1 1/2 in heel. The Prada jewel tone show has a 2 inch heel base. The flats on the right use lace,suede and studs on the toe piece in the design and has about a 1 inch heel overall.
Ready to kick up your heels and sparkle even more? Jimmy Choo, Giuseppe Zanotti, Christian Louboutin and more designers have a wide variety of shoes for evening. Lots of sequins, metallics, studs, pearls are being shown in all heel lengths and designs.
However, until Mother Nature decides to cool us down, you can still shine bright in these lovely sandals. The pearl encrusted flat or ankle strap sandal by Chanel. Or the gorgeous jewel encrusted thong sandals. Both are waiting for you at Neiman Marcus.
No matter what you choose to buy or wear for the upcoming season, designers definitely want you to sparkle and shine.
